One of the easiest Ikea hacks I have done so far was the Ikea Vittsjo coffee table and Vittsjo shelf unit transformation (you can see the shelf in this post and the coffee table in this one). This literally costs close to nothing, but it has a big impact! Since I keep getting questions on the hack, I have decided to do a quick post to share the steps and the spray paint I’ve used. The best gold spray paint: My favorite gold spray paint is the Rust-Oleum gold paint. I have used it in both the coffee table and shelf shown…

Oh hello there little blog! It has been a while… I have been crazy busy lately. We have listed our apartment and already have an offer on it!

When May rolls over I raid every single Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and my favorite flower shop looking for it. Last year I made my MIL plant some in her yard and now we have 4 bushes that are about to flower! I’m so excited waiting for our home grown peonies. I buy tons of it every week, and I always get questions on how to care for them, so today I will be sharing some…

Slowly but surely, I have been updating the home for spring (mostly just changing things around!). This is probably my favorite thing to do. After all, you don’t spend any money when you shop around your home! Currently, I just swapped the floral pillows from my bedroom to the living room (see my bedroom tour here). I’m still looking for the perfect pillows to replace my leopard and gold ones. I’ve been browsing around and these are my current top picks: this black and white, leopard print and floral. I just have been so undecided on which ones to go with!! What do…
