I found them to replace these:

easy chair pillow

part of the master bedroom overhaul includes slowly replacing things that I've had forever, or making them look better than they did in my best friend's college dorm room (fooor example, this chair)....


step one: throw out janky old cushion and find old and soft yves delorme sheet:


step two: fold sheet over twice, and pin around pillow:


step three: put it on da chair.


Now, granted, this only looks about 5% better than it did before, but 5% is 5%. Maybe I just need a new chair.

campaign dresser night stands

I'm baaaaaaaaaaack.

I found these at the thrift store, $40 for both. So ugly and in need of some love. 


I need two new night stands because I am about to embark on a master bedroom overhaul. I've had the same night stands since I was living in New York, which means I was 13 and under, which means that was 14 years ago..... it's time.

My inspiration for sexy-grown-up-night-stand-project?

Black lacquered campaign chests



(Last picture is from Marcus Design Inc. She is amazing.)

I'll get a move on with this over the weekend.

I have some other projects brewing now that the school year is winding down... keep checking back!
