World’s Tiniest Built-In Shelf / DIY Picture Ledge

World’s Tiniest Built-In Shelf / DIY Picture Ledge

I was looking for a very special way to hang this very special pair of oil-on-canvas paintings painted by my mother. Because of their theme, their natural place is the kitchen – although not necessarily! I found the perfect spot for them above the little built-in desk, right off the kitchen. Framing them was the obvious… Continue Reading

“My Favorite Place On Earth” Wall Art

“My Favorite Place On Earth” Wall Art

There was one last thing left that would complete the new vanity desk in my daughter’s room, and that was adding some wall art. I already had a frame that could work for this space; it’s a rectangular, modern, white frame with a mat for two inserts, that I often use for seasonal decor. I intentionally had placed the new… Continue Reading

A Wall Clock Remake

A Wall Clock Remake

I love, love, love this new wall clock that I put together in a few minutes for the wall just above my daughter’s new vanity desk. This was a final sale item from Crate & Barrel that I bought two moves ago, and last time I saw it it was in perfect shape, properly stored in the garage.  I don’t… Continue Reading

Old Clock Facelift

Old Clock Facelift

If you don’t have at least one hanging in your house, I’m sure you ‘ll find one somewhere in your basement or maybe forgotten in the garage.  I actually have not only one, but two of them. Two identical plastic, inexpensive, green clocks that don’t look good with the rest of the decor anymore. One is hanging in the… Continue Reading

Memo Board With Incorporated Wall Hooks: Two In One!

Memo Board With Incorporated Wall Hooks: Two In One!

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

New Additions To A Small Entryway (For Less Than $10!)

New Additions To A Small Entryway (For Less Than $10!)

The house we’re renting is lacking a mudroom. As you enter the house from the garage, the laundry room is to the left and the guest room is right across. If I were to place some furniture, it would have to be 8 inches wide because that’s exactly the space between the side of the laundry… Continue Reading

Seasonal Bathroom Summer Art

Seasonal Bathroom Summer Art

We’ve been in Greece for the last couple of weeks spending time with our family, friends, enjoying the beautiful weather, the beaches and, of course, amazing food. But before leaving our home in the San Francisco Bay Area, I spent some time making sure that I would leave the house tidy.  When putting away the… Continue Reading

How To Display (Many) Childhood Drawings And Enjoy Them Forever!

Even though I’m in Greece right now and I’ll be spending the next few weeks visiting family, friends and maybe a few of our favorite places, I really wanted to show you a couple of projects that are already finished in our San Francisco Bay Area home, which I didn’t have the time to post. While I was putting away the school work… Continue Reading

DIY Mirrors – An Easy Afternoon Project

You’ll love this project! It’s easy, fast, beautiful, original, inexpensive and much more! The supplies were all from one store, so there was no running around to gather everything.  In less than an hour, I had three cute mirrors up and hanging in my daughter’s room.  Here is what I did: I bought three embroidery… Continue Reading
