Ikea Hack - Bekvam Stepladder Makeover



I like having easy access to things and a stepladder is a must in my house. This past week I picked up the Ikea Bekvam stepladder because it is the perfect height and it comes with a handy hook for hanging the stepladder.

I want this stepladder hung in my kitchen where it is nice and handy, but if it's going to be on display all the time I want it to be cute...



My Dream Dining Room - the Perfect Chandelier & Chairs

The room is really coming together! I still have one more chair to paint, but 5 are done and I replaced the Craig's List chandelier with one I bought from Lowes. I ordered it online on a Saturday and it was in my hands by Tuesday - gotta like that!!


Do you want to see the room so far??


My Dream Dining Room - the Black Hutch

Phase 1 of creating my dream dining room is almost complete!  I began with the hutch and chairs and I am thrilled with the way this makeover is turning out!

Remember the "before" hutch:

I loved it in the aqua, but it didn't fit with my dream inspiration:

Creating My Dream Dining Room


Another year, another dining room makeover! This time, though, I am getting the look I truly want!

INSPIRATION ROOM

Last week I scored 4 matching Windsor chairs on Craig's List and found one solid oak Windsor chair in great shape at the dump.  Now my dining room furniture is exactly the style I want it to be.  Time to give all the mismatched furniture a makeover to get my dream dining room!


From Dog House to Cat Condo

Last fall I decided I was not going to be getting a dog any time soon (famous last words). So I tore down the ultra-huge dog house my ex-boyfriend had built and made it into a much smaller cat condo.


I didn't spend a dime on this kitty cat condo, it was built completely from left over materials.
