It Will Be Mine - #2

Bar Stools by Ana White.  With my kitchen renovation almost completed, I've been trying to figure out what I'm going to do for seating at our new bar. We have a couple of bar stools we got with our ginormo Craigslist set, but they're way too big, so I'm thinking custom is in store...

Awesome Dress from Men's Shirt by Made it on Monday. Wow! This is awesome! I may be stealing a few items from my husband's closet...shall we see if he notices?

Amazing Anthro-inspired Lamp by Retropolitan. (Anthro lamp on top, Erika's lamp on bottom). I love that it's a different view when the light comes on. So cool!

Fabric sling book holders - Made by Melanie from tutorial seen on Penny Carnival. Great twist on traditional bookshelves!

Pom Pom Bib Necklace from Little Miss Momma.  I made my own bib necklace this weekend, and it's okay, but I'm not head-over-heels in love with it. Then I found this one today (of course). Back to the old drawing board...

Aloha, and watch for a few tutorials this week, AND I busted out my "real" camera and will attempt to finally take pics of our finished 1/2 bath! The kitchen is also almost complete. Yippee!!!!



  1. Charlie good luck with the stools. (That pic is actually my stools, Ana used my pic for her post!) Note - be sure to square up, not square and they will wobble. Can't wait to see what you make.

  2. Thank you so much for featuring my upcycled dress!

  3. that's one of my fave nursery tours from ohdeedoh ever. i LOVE the big gray bubble. so cool. :)
