Trash Blog: Coffee Tables

OMG,

I swear I find most of the stuff thats in our home in the trash.  Is that gross? IS IT? Regardless if it is gross to you or not, ITS HOW I ROLL. These two coffee tables were found and brought back to be fixed up! What do you all think? Which one should I fix up and keep? 

I am QUITE certain that Daniel and our roommate Kennedy are sick of me bringing shit home. Deal with it guys, I’m a dumpster diver.  Let me know in the comments if you guys have any ideas for what I could do to them. To be honest my first instinct is to paint them a fresh cloud white, but maybe thats too boring. Let me know, down below. BAM

Trash Blog: Bookcase

WOAH,

Kids, it has been WAY TO LONG! I mean it! I seriously fell of the band wagon. Maybe I will chase that wagon and jump back on again. To be honest I don’t even know if I will. I am so bad at keeping up with these things when I don’t have extra time. I should make some extra time though. I guess we will see!

Lately Daniel and I have been finding so much good shit in the garbage in our building. Check out this white IKEA bookshelf we found. I decided to get some pretty fabric and staple gun it to the back. How pretty is this!? RUL PRETTY if you ask me.

:) Hopefully talk to you guys soon!

Para Paints Project

Kids,

Lately I have REALLY shit the bed, and haven’t kept up with my blog. I am ashamed truly, especially because I know everyone else seems to be on the ball!

When I attended Blogpodium, it really inspired me to keep blogging away. It even inspired a new project that will be coming up shortly. I am so stoked about it, but for now I will keep it a secret. LOL! Blogpodium also supplied me with some pretty awesome free gifts. Para Paints gave out some fan decks of all their wonderful paint colours. Originally I thought I wanted to paint some stripes on my bedroom wall, but then the wheels started turning. I had a brilliant idea. I’m not sure if I had seen this somewhere or I just thought it up on my own; either way, I found myself at Staples buying 300 push pins, so I could tack all of these beautiful colours on my wall. I took some pictures along the way! Check it out!As you can see, I only had enough to do exactly half of the wall. I don’t know if I am content with this or not. Half of me thinks its fine and the other half is like “FINISH THE JOB JACKASS”. What are you guys thinking? Let me know down below!

Improving your Balcony

Hello there my darling dears!

I just wanted to post some pictures from our attempt at making our little balcony a tiny bit prettier.  Some SPICE, one might say ;).

I’m going to be REAL honest. Our balcony looks over a fucking empty lot of dirt, so it needs all the help it can get. Daniel and I are also living on SEVERE BUDGETS, so we put our heads together and thought “where do poor people shop?”. The answer my friends is the dollar store. We headed over and found these cheap plastic pots and spray painted them white. We also were finally able to put these cute floral buckets to use. We got them from IKEA a couple months ago, and they had been collecting dust ever since. Our balcony still needs a lot of work, even after these improvements. It’s getting there though eh!? I was also thinking about getting some outdoor tile to put down. Does anybody know where I can find some?

New Friends!

Wieners,

I would just like to say that my camera was DEADZO BANANZO as soon as I arrived at Blogpodium yesterday. You’ll just have to deal with these AMAZING smilebooth photos. HELL YES WE’RE COOL BEANS, CHECK US OUT. Can you believe I made actual friends? These are not like regular friends though, these are cool blogger friends. WOAH.

You should probs check out there blogs!

Tea Tins Plant Holders!

This right here, is a SUPER FANTASTIC idea from House & Home. I LOVE this idea so much, because I have so many pretty tea tins that I just couldn’t bear to throw out. I must get some herbs and pretty little fleurs for the window sill.  Now I need to find a use for all those vintage cigarette tins I bought   a couple summers ago in P.E.I.  Any ideas?

Rainbowfy your Books

Well Hello my darling dears,

Today is a beautiful Monday morning! The sun is shining and apparently it is going to be a warm 21 degrees here in Toronto.  The last 2 weeks for me have been pretty much GARBAGE, so I feel like I have to go out and enjoy the warmth of the sun today. I haven’t blogged as much as I wanted to over those miserable days, so I thought I would shoot out a happy post. In an attempt to cheer myself up I thought I would rainbowfy our books! OBVS I don’t need to explain how to do this.  It was actually kind of calming to sit infront of that little bookcase and colour code. Give it a go on a rainy day maybe? I THINK YES. It will do wonders for a miserable mood.
