Goodwill or Anthropologie? 3 Items that Will Have You Guessing!

Building my dream kitchen

I know what my dream kitchen looks like. It’s a little like this: It’s charming. Functional. There is maybe a cat or two lounging nearby. But in reality, my kitchen looks more like this: I haven’t (yet) covered a ping-pong table with a tablecloth like Snoopy at Thanksgiving. But the chairs definitely don’t match, and […]

Five-minute DIY: No-sew bedsheet curtains

Maybe moving twice in one year has made me lazy. Or maybe I’m just not one for complex do-it-yourself projects. All I know is that simple, quick DIY ideas that use easy-to-find items are my favorite. My most recent case of lackadaisical DIY: No-sew curtains that aren’t even really curtains. It all started when I […]
