Love It or Leave It

by Cait

I preface this post by saying I’m sorry to anyone who has seen these multiple times already!  I just can’t get enough of them!

God bless the internet for providing me with an endless supply of inspiring ideas!  We’re suckers for repurposing items to give them a new life, and here is a small smattering of the things we’re finding inspiring lately.   Check back to see if any of them end up being reworked for our house later!

From Apartment Therapy – SF Flickr Finds, seen on YHL

From PB Teen, but could easily be DIYed.

This is everywhere right now, so forgive me for jumping on the bandwagon.

From West Elm

Seen on Door16, originally from emmas designblogg

I am willing to bet I am almost completely alone in my love for this next one.


From the ReadyMade Blog

What inspires you?  Do you have a folder on your computer or a stack of magazine pages like I do?

The Long Haul

by Cait

Our haul from a recent trip to the nearest Ikea (which is about two hours away).  It’s a trifecta quadfecta (yes, I had to invent a word for it) really, because it’s Ikea, a giant West Elm, Crate & Barrel, and a Pottery Barn right below the Crate & Barrel.  Oi.  Personally, with that kind of home decor mecca I’m actually amazed we didn’t come home with more than we did.

Stay tuned for details on a mini makeover or two that we have in the works.
