Meet the Twins!

Slowly but surely, our home is coming together. I’ve been carefully and craftily curating our collection of furniture and home decor, and today I’d love to share with you all the newest additions to our family of furnishings! Friends, meet the twins! Our dresser now has a baby brother and sister! We’ve been in dire need of nightstands since we moved in, and the time has finally come.

I’m not ashamed to share that we’ve been using cardboard boxes as nightstands, since I can now share the awesome upgrade that has taken place! Yet another craigslist furniture find that I upcycled into MCM-style works of love.

The "before" shot. Always the eager beaver, I can never remember to take a picture before I get to work!

I am still looking to replace the drawer pulls, since they are a little to bulky for my taste, but that is yet another journey into DIY crafting to encounter on yet another day. The current pulls give these lovely units a file-cabinet-esque look, which I do not prefer. Does any one have any tips on replacing an inset/flush drawer pull with a standard pull/knob?

And in other exciting news, my studio has also adopted a new piece of furniture!

Hooray I have shelves! Lucky me, we found this Ikea Expedit just hanging out on the curb down the street from our house! Left out like yesterday’s garbage! I guess it’s really true, that old saying about trash and treasure…

Don't mind the tower of cardboard in the background. A "bright" future is in store for all that...
