MCM Sofa Table

Hey! I wanted to share our most recent project - a DIY Mid Century Modern Style sofa table.


I found a set of hair pin legs a few months ago at the thrift shop (attached to a plywood top) - $15 for the set (these are pricey new, so I grabbed them right away!). David built a super simple top out of poplar wood. Adding cubbies to the base - verse a single piece of wood allowed us to get the height that we wanted. I love using poplar because of the unique coloring - ranging from green to purple. We were able to use one board, so the grain of the wood wraps around the entire piece.

The baskets were found at Marshalls for just $14.99. Amazing price!! 


I'm still not 100% on the placement of everything, so I'm going to move a few things around and see what I think. Just wanted to share what things looked like now! 


See you soon!!

Friday Five | 03.27.15




Thank goodness it is Friday! Here's what has caught my eye over the past week!


Yesterday I was asked for my favorite floral pillow sources, so I rounded up a few of my favorites! I love the Etsy shop Spark Modern - I could literally take every pillow in their shop home with me! They are a great source for designer pillows - the prices are very reasonable, especially when you look at the price per yard when purchasing designer fabric! These are great statement pillows that could easily make a space!

Gathering Inspiration with Arhaus

Over the weekend, I browsed around on of my favorite shopping areas, Tysons Corner - where all of my go to home decor stores are next to each other. I love soaking up the endless inspiration! 




Today, I'm talking about Arhaus! I love the mixture of eclectic with modern touches and use of natural materials. 

I was instantly drawn to the Pavo Sectional. We've been looking for sofas casually for a few years (I'm pretty picky, it has to be comfortable and solidly built!) Now that we're moving into our home soon (verse apartment living), and ready to purchase a few investment pieces, we'll be picking out a sofa or two soon! Wouldn't this be perfect for relaxing in our TV room downstairs -  I love the deep seating! I was super impressed with the comfort and quality.

Marble, Brass Side Table | Before + After

Today I'm sharing perhaps our simplest DIY project yet - a traditional marble side table to a sleek, modern brass and marble side table. (or is it a plant stand??)


Here's the before .. a whole lot of detail going on in such a small space. $15 at the thrift store. The marble was a little stained - rubbing baking soda and letting it sit for a few hours got it all off.
