DIY Knife Blocks & Ice Ice Baby

I’ve been in Atlanta soaking up some amazing speakers at the Design Bloggers Conference the past few days, and I am on my way home now.  In fact, this post is coming to you from the clouds this early morning.  I’m missing my husband and babies, of course, so I am ready to get home!

I wanted to share with you two of my favorite articles I recently wrote for P+G Everyday.  I think they have lots of useful information, and I like sharing articles with you that I save for myself to refer back to.

First up, knife blocks…I see these in the store, and they are super expensive, right?  The thing is, you can save yourself some money by buying a nice set of knives and making your own knife block.

These DIY options look darn good, and I like the organic feel to them.

Laundry Room Update (& things just got a little easier around here)

 

 

If you remember my previous post about my closet turned laundry room, you probably recall how this “room” used to look like this.

AStoriedStyle.comWe took part of my husband’s closet to make this area a little bigger, and it has been great to have a good laundry space upstairs since that is where all of the bedrooms are.  I have been wanting to decorate it a little more intentionally, and I knew I needed something smashing in there lighting wise.  This is an area of my home that can feel dark since it is off a long hallway, and the light I had before was not cutting it.

A few weeks ago, I found this chandelier on Ebay, and I fell in love.  I have seen many, many bamboo chandeliers in my life, but I have never seen one like this.

Slipcovering An Old Chair

Hello Everyone!  Hope you had a great weekend.  It has been much warmer, and dare I jinx it, spring-like in my neck of the woods.  I feel for you out there who are still covered in ice and snow.  (well, unless you really enjoy ice and snow :) )

If you have been reading awhile, you know how much I love buying antique or vintage furniture pieces and giving them new life through upholstery.  You can find some really interesting shapes and great bones in old pieces, and although discovering them before someone else does is getting a bit harder (don’t you think so?), the end result is well worth it.

While doing some friend visiting and furniture hunting in Austin a couple of years ago, I went to an estate sale and found this $40 chair. I do have a love for this type of chair, which I lovingly refer to as the Mad Hatter.  (I have a similar pair I use as host chairs in my dining room.)

It has lived in my garage for a long time now as I waited for the perfect space for it.  It came as pictured with no cushion, and at some point, someone took a marker to it, but I just couldn’t sell it.  Finding this type of chair is rare, and I knew it had a spot somewhere in my home.  A trip into my favorite local home store, Simple Things, inspired me, and suddenly I had an idea.

I saw this chair on their showroom floor, and I was sold.
