Easy Frame Hack for a Stylish Bedroom

Once of my most recent DIY projects was updating the picture frames above my bed. Before, I had one frame that I had painted white. It served its purpose, but it was time for an upgrade.

One way to make your home look stylish and more well designed is large scale art. Statement pieces feel more purposeful and can become the focal point for a room. For my bedroom, I chose 2 large scale skinny gold frames with large mattes to hold a 5″x7″ photo. I loved the contrast of the skinny frame with the thick matte. You can find a similar frame here!

Stress Free Office Mini Makeover

My company recently announced that we would be working from home for another 9 months. After 6 months of making due in my at home office, I decided that it was time for a little bit of a room makeover. I wanted to adjust the room to more of a permanent office space that worked for my needs.

Before quarantine, I used my office room as more of an extended closet, guest bedroom, but also had a desk space. I rarely worked from home, so I didn’t use the desk space very often. Now that I use the space daily, it was time to adjust. I didn’t end up doing a major makeover, but a few tweaks made the space so much better for stress-free work!

Some easy updates you can do to make major change to your space include:

I recently decided to overhaul my living room decor. I haven’t updated the room for a while, and was ready for a refreshed look, especially now that I have been spending more time at home.

Bathroom Remodel Update

We have officially kicked off the bathroom remodel! When I first bought my house, I did a little freshening up of my bathroom, but the time has come for a bigger overhaul. The parts of the bathroom that really need to be redone are the vanity, mirror, and floor.

The vanity and mirror were there when I bought my house and have seen better days. The mirror is made out of laminate particle board, which just doesn’t wear well in a bathroom. I suspect the vanity is original to the house and the wood is pretty gross and the top is a yellowed stone. I put in a new floor the first time I did my bathroom, but I just went with a basic tan tile. It’s not the worst look, but I would like something a little nicer and updated.
