It’s been quite a while since I first pinned these nesting neon boxes by Kate Spade on my Pinterest “future projects” board.   They’re not for sale anymore but they’re still absolutely desirable, especially now that spring is coming.

Wooden Wine Crates On Wheels – Ideal for Storage!

Wooden Wine Crates On Wheels – Ideal for Storage!

Over the past weekend, while we were shopping for some good Napa Valley wine, I asked the store owner if he had any empty wooden wine crates that I could take home. They are quite difficult to find nowadays, as most producers have lowered their cost by packaging and shipping wine in carton boxes. But, some wineries continue… Continue Reading

From Shoe Box To Glam Storage

From Shoe Box To Glam Storage

Covering a box with wrapping paper is nothing new, but attaching a metallic handle is certainly a lovely addition! And when the box is actually an old shoe box, that is certainly a transformation!

Our little entryway has been much more functional since I made a couple of small additions to the space: I added a cute étagère that I found online (for free!) and a mirror that made this small and darker part of the house feel more open and bright (check out all the updates, here). In that same entryway, there is one more wall, and… Continue Reading

I had a few projects in mind for our Athens apartment, but honestly, is it even worth spending time on cosmetic changes that will lead to more cosmetic changes if… Continue Reading

I have to admit that this post is geared more to those neat freaks, who like me, want to have every inch of the house organized (well, it’s not always, but I try). I can think of many people I know (my mom would be the first) who would look at me, puzzled and ask… Continue Reading

How to Make Drawer Dividers

How to Make Drawer Dividers

I started this project to make dividers for my desk drawer.  I had to organize all the stuff that I use on a daily basis: pens, markers, clips, tape etc.  But as I was going on,  my dividers became too precious to waste on office supplies. With their pink fabric and velvet ribbons they had… Continue Reading
