A friend of mine is expecting her first baby next month, and I asked her if she needed any furniture for the nursery. She asked for an Expedit style bookcase, very slim lined and white. She sent over the dimensions of the space, and I got to work! I started with a sheet of Purebond, …

Reclaimed Wood Industrial Vanity

reclaimed-vanity

When we were brainstorming ideas for our master bathroom vanity, I wanted something a little out of the ordinary.

Why hello again! It’s been a few days, huh? This always happens every time we go visit my parents. I get all caught up doing grandma/Charlie time things and completely unplug. You’d think I’d have learned to schedule a few posts in advance, but I got behind on all my projects and just now got …

Confession: I hate holidays. Well, scratch that. I hate commercialized holidays. Things like Christmas and Thanksgiving and *cough* Valentine’s Day.
