Honey, You Are Too Tall – A Dresser Makeover

Honey, You Are Too Tall – A Dresser Makeover

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!

2 Florida Inspired Style Boards (& tips to create your own backyard paradise)

Florida inspired decor style boards by twoPlusCute

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).

Check out what I came up with. 😉

DIY accent wall with electrical tape by TwoPlusCute

 

This was THE easiest DIY, ever. And the fastest. And renter friendly. And super ultra cheap. Did I mention easy?

I told you how I painted the final living room – our accent wallhere. Well, even though I went a tone or two darker than the rest of the walls, it was simply, plain. Too plain.

Ain’t plain anymore and the best part is, I can change it anytime I want.

And it looks pretty good.

Pillowtalk: 76 pillows for every – decorative – mood

Pillowtalk 76 decorative pillowcases and pillows by TwoPlusCute

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. ^^
