Levolor Cordless Blinds for the Nursery

I’ve been completing a few projects upstairs as I finish up on the details of creating a mid-century guest room in a tiny extra bedroom.

Redefining this disfunctional room was a game changer; but it meant I had to find new space for some of the things this little room housed – particularly the nursery items for those little ones who come to visit us. The number of grandbabies is growing (soon to be five!), and that little room could no longer house the explosion of things required for their needs. So I relocated the children’s room to a larger adjoining bedroom.

As a result of the move, I was once again met with the situation of having to place furniture underneath a window. But this time the selection of window treatments was crucial since it was a crib I was placing directly beneath it. Whatever my choice, the window treatment had to be completely safe from curious little hands.… Click here to read more on this awesome proejct >>

Creating a Functional Guest Room in a Small Space

This small space has taken on many personas over the years. But each one was quickly abandoned when it couldn’t live up to our needs. The space eventually became a hoarder’s closet – its doors always closed, only to be thought of when I needed a place to dump an unused accessory or piece of furniture. Such wasted space.

Then necessity finally forced me to deal with the issue when I needed an additional space for arriving guests. It was time for me to finally conquer the beast.

Creating a functional guest room in a small space isn’t easy. Rooms like these usually have several different requirements (for mine, it holds all my work supplies and crafting materials as well as being a guest bedroom). Every item within its tight quarters had to have a purpose while coexisting in a seamless fashion.

As I planned the redesign this space, I immediately chose to go with a mid-century mix – opting for low-profile furniture and pieces that didn’t take up a large footprint in the room.… Click here to read more on this awesome proejct >>

Creating A Mid-Century Modern Guest Room

Last week I reorganized the office space, unified the desk with matching accessories, and created a pretty picture framed calendar + memo board to help with my daily tasks. I love how that project came together and how much more pleasant the space is to work in.

This week it’s on to a larger project – creating a mid-century modern guest room from a forgotten, tiny, and neglected bedroom.

Picture Frame Calendar + Memo Board

Organize your office space with a picture frame calendar + memo board that’s as pretty as it is functional.

At least once a year I try to gain control of the daily clutter that takes over our home. And the absolute worst spot for accumulation is our desk. To make matters worse, the office is located in the master bedroom where I’m subjected to the mess at all times. So this year, the workspace was first on my list to be conquered.
