Now I know where Pottery Barn gets all their ideas! This diy decorating blog has some of the most amazing DIY projects and ideas. Even her photography looks straight out of Pottery Barn or Ballard Designs. GAH! Jealous. In a good way.
She has taken her vision for decorating her home and created it with DIY projects. I found a few AHA! Moments with her ideas………like the framed map as a headboard! Of course! Why not?! Great idea.

She also used her love of maps to refurbish this old coffee table. Totally not my style in the before………but the after………Come to Mama! LOVE THAT! I admire people who can see beyond the ugly discarded…..This old metal drum…….seriously how many people do you know that would be brilliant enough to say…….”Hmmm, I think I’ll add some plastic lace, some paint and use it in my home”? WOW! I’ll never look at those cheap plastic lacy table cloths the same. She recently had a baby and she did the most adorable nursery ever. The chalkboard closet gets me every time I look at it. And that mobile…..Sigh.
She has since changed out her dining room chairs, but I still loved these photos of her dining and living rooms. Again…….looks straight out of a magazine or catalog. She talks about neutral decorating…..Would love to try that.
Simple baskets become designer objects with number stencils added. And check out her plates. She does a full tutorial on to do this without vinyl.
Speaking of tutorials, she’s got a great one on making these really cool labels. Love her style.
You’ll get lots and lots of ideas from her site……head on over. Don’t forget to tell her she’s been featured!
