IKEA hack - TOLSBY frame customized with nail polish

When it comes to inexpensive IKEA hacks, the TOLSBY frame is one of my favorites. This little plastic 4x6 frame is useful for photos, of course, but we also love to use it during parties for displaying menus or signage. Sometimes the default white is perfectly subtle for my use, but sometimes I'd rather have colors that really pop. I decided to apply a geometric mosaic pattern to a TOLSBY frame, and I chose nail polish as my paint. Nail polish is perfect for this because not only does it come...

Palm Print Shadow Box Art

In the past I’ve had mixed feelings about shadow boxes, they’re used to display memorabilia, sports jerseys or shell collections, that sort of thing. I’ve come around on this style of frame for wall displays now that I see them in a new light. If the subject matter of the shadow box is simple, I’m in. I wanted to change up the mantel scene with a creative new art project. I decided on palm leaf shadow box art after spying this black and linen version at Pottery Barn. I gathered some faux palm le...

Out with the old...

...and in with the new. Ken did this post yesterday, but I thought I'd do a version, too. We got a new sofa last week. The old one is now about ten years old and it shows. It's getting a little threadbare in spots. Plus, the last time we washed the cushion covers we had a hard time getting them back on. Two zippers broke. We decided it was time. The chair on the left still has the old shabby slip cover, the one on the right has the new sleeker look. We wanted a real three seater. The old sofa ...

Laura’s Dining Room Tour (Before + After!)

Wa-hooo!! It feels so good to be touring a main space in our new home since that means it’s finally “done” and I can check it off the list! It’s definitely a different vibe in this room now from when we moved in. It had darker burgundy walls, vertical blinds, carpet, fancy crown molding, and a shiny gold/wood ceiling fan—all things that really made this room feel stuck in the late ’80s/early ’90s. We also realized odd things like the crown molding was installed wrong (that kind is supposed to b...
