This is a story about a tall dresser that was too tall. And very ugly. And was beheaded…
Once upon a time, there were two laminate dressers. A tall bulky one and a short, longer, bulky one. Both of them were in need of some serious nip tuck and a heavy dose of permanent make up. If they wanted to stay in our bedroom that is. One day, I braved myself and decided to try my hand in furniture makeover and in true queen of hearts fashion, I exclaimed “off with its head“!
And indeed, the tall dresser got a bit shorter but also got a pretty paint job and brass knobs that look like beautiful golden jewelry – which was totally by accident and you can do it too!
I was pitched with the idea to create a Florida inspired style board and as usual, I could not make just one.
How does a foreigner like me, goes about creating a style board for Florida – a place I have never visited? Well, with inspiration by hear-say, tv-shows-see, blogger friend’s home tours and a lot of imagination. For good measure I did some more research (read: I looked at really pretty interior photos).
Made new art for our walls. Literally – tongue in cheek – ART, with a touch of pop. This is my best yet and a good step towards filling what hubby calls my “army of frames”. You might have gotten a glimpse of the 2nd printable in our 15 minute accent wall post.

Let’s talk about throw pillows and decorative pillowcases! I told you here how pillows is a work in progress (like everything else in our house – which I like; keeps things from getting boring).
Well, I have pinned a ton of pillowcases but they get lost and mixed among my other pins. A whole post with 76 different decorative pillows, where everything is together, makes more sense to my forgetful brain that has decided that “enough already with that pest called memory!” and refuses to remember anything vital – like decorative pillowcases.
I gathered 76 (seventy six!) tropical, textured, black and white, boho chic, even leather decorative pillows and pillowcases as a quick style guide. From $2 to over $1000 – granted, I am not going to buy a $1000 pillowcase any time soon but, it doesn’t hurt looking. ^^
