Dreaming of a Facelift

…on my apartment, of course!  Today I started thinking about some updates to my boring apartment. The look has been pretty constant for a while and all the furniture I have inside it (save my for baby couch) was given to me by the school and U-G-L-Y. So I think its time to really start thinking about ways to update it to feel more inspired.  Here’s what I’m thinking: wardrobe |  sheets  |  tray sidetable  |  clock  |  circular table  |  tulip chair I need more space and airiness in the apartment so I’ve decided to get rid of the rectangular, brown dining table with two chairs and replace it with a smaller, circular table with a white tulip chair. It should give me more room and I can use it more for a desk than a kitchen table.  I need a bigger, newer wardrobe because the one I have is falling apart and there are few words to describe how unfortunate looking it is.  Sheets are needed as well…my newest sheets are two years …

Party | Flower Garland

It’s the season of the party. Get your garland making skills ready and impress your friends with your totally tubular taste.  Pick the colors that represent you and what you want your party to look like.  I made this one for any ‘ol occasion but decided to use it for my Thanksgiving table. I painted some truly heinous orange pumpkins to match the garland and it all really came together. The how-to it in the gallery below. Just click on the pictures to see the directions. Have fun!      What you need:  colored paper string or cord hot glue and gun scissors circles cut into 4.5″ diameters
