Family Photo Wall

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today I want to share my take on the family photo wall.

I take a lot of pics on my cell phone,  who doesn’t? I also live in an apartment where I’m not about to put a bunch of holes in the wall to hang picture frames. I use the free prints app a lot too! I mean a lot! It’s an app that prints your pics for free you just pay shipping!

So I have all these pics laying around. Solution:

I bought these lighted strands that come with little clothes pins. I’ve found them at Home Goods, TJ Maxx, Rue 21, a bunch of places! Price? 7 bucks!  The clothes pins are metallic and some have designs. The strands light up you just add batteries.

I arranged the strands how I wanted on the wall and used the clothes pins to hang the pictures! Easy, simple, and fun!

What do you think?

I found some amazing coffee table books that I will read not just display! Also a major bowl for soup, cereal, noodles, just about anything! I love big bowls to eat out of! And lastly a new piece for my almost bar cart (inside joke see my bar cart post) and a few decorative knick knacks.

I was very happy with my finds!

Do you have any good hauls?

Lace Dresser Update

Hello and happy Sunday! You may remember but I did a post on the blog a long time ago where I did an update to my mom’s old dresser with paint and lace.

It has proven to be a very popular post even today! Well I decided to update that dresser again!

I changed the paint and the way the lace was placed this time. I also added new pulls. Check out the before and after and if you want to see the original, search for the lace dresser post to see where it all started!

Table Makeover

I have a table and chair set that my parents gave me when I moved into my own place. This table and chair set is almost thirty years old! So you can imagine it needed a little makeover.

I not only wanted to update the table but I needed it to match my style and color scheme a little better.

This makeover was a total of $10!

What I used:

  1. spray paint (black and white)
  2. fabric
  3. staple gun

I did this over the span of the weekend but this project could be completed in a day or less.

Sofa Style

Often times the biggest piece in your living room is the sofa and it draws the most attention in the room as well. So make it look good! I styled my sofa a couple of different ways so you can get a feel for all the different looks you can do with your own sofa.

What you will need:

pillows and blankets

First up: Monochromatic

My sofa is gray so I incorporated silvers, grays, and gray toned beige.

Next up: Oversized Pillows

Make your sofa super comfy with oversized pillows!

Lastly: Color and Texture

With a neutral sofa I try to have fun with color and adding texture to anything is my jam! I added fun colors and shapes with the pillows and some texture through the patterns and fur blanket.

Last thoughts:

Remember your space is what you make it! Whether you want cozy, inviting, fun, happy, or relaxing you can achieve any look with a few pieces! Don’t be afraid to have fun and take some risks with color and patterns!

Live it. Love it. Style it.
