Getting Organized for the Fall

Living on my own has made me SUPER lazy, so I dedicated this weekend to a bit of fall cleaning – dusting, swiffering, dish washing, and putting away the laundry I did last weekend (finally!). I also packed away warm weather clothes and hung up comfy sweaters for the coming cold days.

Since I’ve been in an organizing mood, here are three easy things you can do to stay organized:

1. Use hooks to organize your pants. I love a neat and tidy closet. Continue reading “Getting Organized for the Fall”

Things that are pretty great

So this was the first summer I spent as an adult AKA not having a summer break. Besides the long weekends for July 4th and Labor Day, I didn’t get to have much of vacation. But that’s mostly because I’ve been working for less than a year and I’m saving the paid time off I’ve accrued for a nice long holiday break in Dec-Jan.

I have to say, it’s kind of disorienting. I’m so used to being a student and having things segmented into quarters or semesters. I associate summers with reading books, traveling places, going to the shore, and working for 10-12 weeks at a new internship. So without any of those things, I feel like my brain hasn’t been able to register the passing of time. Continue reading “Things that are pretty great”

Where has the time gone? Can’t believe we’re 2/3 though June!

I have some side projects still in the works that have to do more with decorating and less with furniture making so get ready! It’s going to be a summer of decorating 🙂

Until those get finished, here’s a fun idea that you can use to brighten up that dark corner in your bedroom…

Copper & Wood Leaning Projector Shelf – Lessons Learned

I think the biggest challenge with decorating a leased apartment is not being able to nail things into the wall D: That means no floatings shelves, wall-mounted TVs, ceiling mounted projectors, etc. I wanted to build something for my projector because it had been sitting under the coffee table and then sitting on a makeshift shelf just a bit higher than the couch. With the first position, I couldn’t move the coffee table without knocking the projector over, and with the other position, no one could sit in the middle of the couch without seeing a silhouette of their head.

Garden-Inspired Entryway

I like trees and flowers and I LOVE visiting botanical gardens. I wanted to bring those things inside with me. My entryway doesn’t get a whole lot of sunlight because it’s up a flight of stairs and away from windows, so it’s not the best place for the plants I have currently. And fake plants tend to look overwhelmingly fake to me. So here’s my take on a garden-themed entryway without real or fake plants. Continue reading “Garden-Inspired Entryway”
