    Wow – you definitely have a different JoAnn’s Fabrics then we do here – I could look all day and never find anything as wonderful as that. Or perhaps you have that ability to always find the needle in the haystack – either way – your SIL is one lucky girl!

    LOVE the headboard that has been on my to-do list for a while!! Two questions though…

    1. As someone living in NYC, where could I easily buy MDF?

    2. How did you hang it up, esp in a renter’s apt?

    Thanks πŸ™‚

      You can easily find pieces at Home Depot, which there is now a location in the city. They have 2 x 4 pieces of yucca board or peg board in the lumbar section. Depending on the size of your bed you may need them to cut one of the boards down for you. They do rough cuts at Home Depot so just get them to do it.

      I guess you could try hanging them with the 3M stripes, but I normally just use one small nail for each board and it normally doesn’t cause any problems for renters.

      Hope that helps!

  12. You are the best SIL ever!!! Amazing…love your colors and fabrics. Will she share the room with everything in place? And I think I missed the final reveal of your sister’s apartment you were doing awhile back?!?!?!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
