I have been pinning like CRAZY! This are some of the inspirations for my house. I can’t wait to be in my home!

So, I have so many projects I’ve been waiting to do and haven’t got around them. I finally decided to do my bedroom nightstands! These nightstands have been with me since I moved to Jacksonville, which has been more than a few years. I really didn’t care for them anymore. However, I thought I could make them into something new! I bought these knobs that I absolutely love at Hobby Lobby, and I had some pretty mint paint leftover from my dining room project.
Ta-da! A full makeover with these nightstands. I distressed them a little bit so they have an old look to it. I love how they turned out! So easy!
To finish up our bedroom decor I added cute decorations that I originally made for my wedding. Notice the MR. and MRS.? Most of all our wedding decor is decorating our whole apartment, and I’m ok with that! I want my little apartment to feel like a home for us, until one day we buy our house. Sometimes that’s difficult when you rent a place. However, we were determined to make it look like ours. Our bedroom is slowly coming together, especially after this DIY. I’m obsessed with the wall, so let’s talk about that for a second. I was waiting to buy that cool vintage white frame for awhile. Then one day, I finally found it! To compliment the vintage frame are vintage plates Justin and I purchased in a vintage store on our honeymoon, in New York! (Although these were purchased in Williamsburg, Brooklyn) When I saw the plates, I had to have them. They are very dear to us and remind us of our special trip.
Projects like this are so easy to do that anyone can do them. Just have an idea in mind, materials, and a full day of creativity and you’re set!
Hope you are having a great week so far!
Not only do I want this space to be a fashion blog, because that’s not my only passion. I love doing do it yourself stuff, or I like to say, “DIM- Do it myself.” I spend hours on Pinterest every week looking for new things to add to our first home. I especially love taking what I already have and making them new! Let’s take a look at one of my Pins that quickly became an inspiration.
We bought a dining room set a few months ago from an Antique Store, and I knew what I was going to do when I saw it! I loved the idea of a white table and minty blue chairs. So, after many hours of painting, this is the result and I am oh so in love with it!
We just got our wedding photos last week and I was so ready to put pictures in my empty frames. I love how everything just came together! I can’t wait to invite people over for dinner!
