DIY :: Woody Valentines

Valentine’s Day wouldn’t be complete without printed, cut, folded and glued paper Valentines passed out to friends and family (like the lovely floral printables Jenn created this year), but I’m always intrigued by V-Day crafts that are made with less predictable materials. This DIY was inspired by… well, a tree branch. And while it boasts… read more

Transformed :: Wood & Leather Suspended Shelf

Claire here! And today I’m bringing you a DIY project that’s so simple, I’m wondering why I didn’t attempt it sooner.

Transformed :: Benched

This time of year, I’ll find any and every excuse to create a DIY that can be enjoyed outdoors.

As I began to… read more


Transformed :: Scaffolding to Table

Happy first-day-of-November, everyone! Two weeks ago, I (Claire) asked for your suggestions on which table I should make to convert my formal dining room into a functioning combination workspace/eating area. I was leaning towards a sawhorse style table, but after reading all the enthusiastic responses to the metal base table (option #3), I decided to make one… read more

Happy Thursday everyone, Claire here with my latest project dilemma.

Transformed :: String Theory

September is here and I (Claire) am still trying to grasp the fact that the summer has passed me by. I am however ready for the change (namely the cooler weather!) that fall will bring.

Do You Dare :: Catch My Drift Wood

As we move from cozy dens to breezy patios and sip sparkling whites in place of robust reds, I (Michelle) am so ready to say see ya later to any and all signs of winter, and there is no season like spring to re-think the way we style our homes. Since we’re all about spaces that combine… read more
