5 Wall Decor Ideas

I think when I was first decorating our apartment, the biggest struggle was to figure out what to put on the walls! You don't want to buy stock art from World Market or Target- that's not appealing. You don't want to leave them blank. You think you can just DIY something- so you search for tutorials and Pin them and then never do them...

Get the Pin: Vanity edition

We've been doing vanities for so many people lately, that we thought it'd be a good idea to share some ways that our pieces can work for this function! You can turn lots of pieces into vanities, depending on the space you have- dressers, side tables, buffets, even desks! Here are a few ideas based on pins we've seen and pieces we currently have in stock (and often have in our inventory). Image from Apartment Therapy   This vintage dresser has so much character. But...

Same Buffet, Two Finishes

We've had this piece exact piece in twice now and it's a beauty! It has two marble inlays on the top, which makes it great in a dining room for serving purposes. It's a Thomasville piece, which means it is really well made! The first time we had this piece in, we painted it in a light gray Amy Howard chalk paint. It can be hard to choose a paint color when there is a marble top- you have to make...

Evolution of My Boys’ Room

This room has had quite a lot of iterations in the 4 years we have lived in this apartment! When we moved in the, the floors were completely unfinished. We were working with a completely blank slate. Only our oldest son was born when we moved in and he was in a different room that is now our younger son's room. This space first actually served us as a...

3 Pieces that are Begging to be Cerused

We cerused a piece for a customer this week and it got us all giddy about doing this finish on everything in sight. It is a premiere finish however, so we like to do it when asked more often than for a piece on the floor. That being said, I'm just going to make some suggestions of pieces we have in our inventory right now that would look insane cerused, and hopefully that will allow us to ceruse everything in...

Custom Bench Ideas

We've been talking about different custom benches we could make- give us a reason to just make one! We already make custom metal bases like these, and we have the ability to upholster just about anything- so these would be totally doable. Give us your vision and we will make it happen!  This is a DIY tutorial from Dwellings by Devore made out of an ikea tv stand. From what I can tell, Ikea doesn't sell this tv stand anymore :( Womp womp....

Custom Color Choices that are #Worthit

Around here, we have about 15 colors we carry in-house. Those colors, listed here, are what we have found to be the biggest crowd pleasers. But sometimes, you don't want what the crowd wants, you want a really bold piece or something really unique and different. Don't worry, we gotchu. We can color match any color from any deck for a $50 up charge to cover the cost of the gallon of paint. Now that can be tricky, to have...
