DIY Art Projects to Awaken Your Creative Side

There are a lot of DIY art projects out there that usually end up as a #pinterestfail or just look so basic you can’t actually display it in your home (aka everything I’ve ever made at one of those paint and wine classes).

Ikea Hack: Stone Topped End Tables

I’ve written before about my Ikea hack end tables, but I thought it was worth updating the post! I’ve had these cheapie end tables for years and wanted to refresh them without a big investment. I thought maybe I could find some type of hardwood flooring that I could cover over the tops and went to look at my local home improvement store.

What I’m Loving: August

August becomes such a busy month as summer wraps up and we prepare for fall. Sometimes we spend so much time looking ahead, that we don’t take the time to enjoy the present. This month’s inspo is all about slowing down and taking time to enjoy the everyday!

Rent the Runway: July Shipment

For my second month of Rent the Runway, I wanted to refresh my summer wardrobe with pretty dresses and skirts for work. I felt more prepared this order, because I was able to shop all month and “like” items that I was interested in renting instead of being in a panic trying to sort through everything to get my order.

I again found it frustrating that there isn’t a lot of availability of a lot of the items. Of my likes, about half were available in my size. I’m always looking for 1-2 skirts and 2-3 dresses in a variety of formal and fun looks, so it’s actually pretty difficult when the ones you really wanted aren’t available and you have to try to find backups. As I said in my first month review, I’m also really only interested in renting designer items that are worth the money– if I want to wear a $40 free people dress, I’ll just go buy it!

Pretty Vintage-Inspired Livingroom

My favorite room in my house is my living room. It gets the prettiest morning sunlight from the east that spills across the room. It’s also one of the rooms in my house with the biggest transformation after we installed the vintage hardwood floors.
