When Christmas is just around the corner, we start using our crafty skills, we take out our hot glue gun, our miter saw, our tapes, paint brushes and of course our Christmas ornaments. This year, like any other year, I used Christmas time as an excuse to decorate every room of our house with easy DIY Christmas ornaments and
Red is my hubby’s and I favorite color and our one year old boy seems to gravitate to all red things as well (i.e. ELMO). So, this month I might have gone a bit crazy with this color in our eat-in-kitchen by painting some accessories instead of buying.
It all started by the need to add a touch of color to our new eat-in-kitchen and
We are back home!
We came back to our house last Friday afternoon, after three, almost four weeks of kitchen renovation. So, my old habits came back too, looking to decorate with inexpensive accessories and attempt simple and small DIY projects around the house.
In this post, I will show you 2 small DIY projects I did last
OK, I know, I’ve mentioned this many times before in my tweets, we are having a complete kitchen and living room renovation in our tiny townhouse.
The renovation should be over very soon, I’m at the point, where I can’t wait to see the final result, but we still need to wait a couple of more days to see it. Once, this renovation will be over, I will be sharing my pictures and
In our small narrow townhouse we don’t have a formal dining room, we have an eat-in-kitchen.
I can’t complain, it is very bright, spacious and opens up to our back yard as well.
We have a simple brown dining table with simple brown chairs from IKEA. The walls are white and plain with no wall paper or artwork. Maybe later, I
After reading and looking at the beautiful pictures on “DOMESTIC SUPERHERO”’s blog : DIY Dresser Refinishing! , I was inspired to reclaim my old brown IKEA LEKSVIK desk into a pretty white desk that sits now in my bedroom as a double-duty desk/night-stand.
On her post, DOMESTIC SUPERHERO provides us with all the details and step-by-step that I followed of how to reclaim a beautiful piece of furniture
This is a small DIY project that I did this weekend:

We have 3 bedrooms in our house, one is used as our master bedroom, the second is our son’s bedroom and the third one is also used for our son as a play room (where we store a lot of his toys).
Since, I have no space for a dedicated home office, I have used a nook in our basement to create this well-organized and functional home office.
The desk, the shelves, the chair, the magnetic boards, the boxes and the stool are all from IKEA. The pockets are from the Martha Stewart (with Avery-at-Staples)Collection.
The white boxes are very useful because they are used as a storage solution, I was able to organize our papers and our little knickknacks are no longer displayed in our kitchen table.
Because this space is in our basement and I like to keep it light, I choose not to paint this wall, but maybe before winter arrives I might consider a warmer tone of color for this wall and a different lamp.
With a little imagination, a tight budget and some nice accessories found around the house, I am happy to have finally created my pretty little home office and to share it with you.
Please, keep an eye out because soon I will be revealing new DIY projects around the house.
