DIY Coffee Table

Purchasing a coffee table for our living room has been long overdue. Now that our little ones are not so little anymore, I've been searching for a coffee table to replace their toy chest and to make our space look a cozier and more "lived-in". I stumbled upon this gorgeous royal blue luggage chest while browsing a thrift store and I knew it had to come home with me. What to use it for was the question. More toy storage? No! Then it hit me. I could re-purpose into our new coffee table. All I needed was to add some legs to it to make it look more formal, and we would have ourselves a unique looking coffee table. It was fairly simple. I picked up the legs from our local hardware store, spray painted them then drilled holes on the bottom and screwed it right in. Here is my before and after photos. How do you like it?

Happy New Look!

It's been a while since I've made a blog entry, but what better time to start up again than the start of a new year! I thought I'd give you some inspiration for a fresh and stylish look which I particularly love to start off your year. Enjoy!

Doilies and Lace

Lately I've been obsessed with anything made with doilies and lace. There are just certain things in life that one can be drawn to, and mine is crochet doilies and delicate lace. So much so, that I recently added a few beautiful pieces to baby Claire's nursery with this inspiration in mind. 
This lovely area rug by Urban Outfitters
Lace curtains inspired by Baby to Go, where I bought Claire's crib set from (pictures to come). I was pleasantly surprised to find the same type of fabric curtains at Ikea.
Here are a few other favorite finds in this category.

 Vintage crochet buttons

Jack and Jill went up the hill

I'm SO excited because today I received the cutest lamp in the mail for Claire's nursery. A little while back I decided to re-decorate her room with a shabby chic/nursery rhyme theme so when I set eyes on this vintage lamp on Zelle's Attic, I couldn't resist.

The little one's bedding is being custom made as we speak by the sweet Carmit of Baby to go. I will post some more photos once the room makes its total transformation. In the meantime, I'm enjoying the process and I look forward to finding more pieces to make her room complete.

My Easter bunny

I had so much fun dressing my little bunny up for Easter. Even though she can only wear this get-up once, I had to have it. Thank goodness for talented people like this who can crochet one of many adorable outfits I've seen yet.
