Kid Friendly Seattle Renovation

Fixer Upper Friday—Kid Friendly Seattle Renovation

So I’m in the middle of binge watching Six Feet Under…again. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend that you take this weekend to veg out and remedy that (also, no worries, this post doesn’t have any spoilers).

***I don’t know how long this link will be active, but you can watch the pilot episode on HBO’s site right now without a subscription.

If you have seen it then the next thing I’m about to say will totally make sense to you: I absolutely LOVE Brenda’s apartment. It’s such a beautiful space that I always search around for similar design styles. Brenda’s apartment is kinda like my litmus test for decor. Simple and sleek but at the same time full of character and awesome architectural features. ***Which TV/Movie homes would you just love to live in? Comment below!***

Brenda's Apartment

So in my constant quest for Brenda-esque apartments, I found this really awesome space featured on Design Sponge. While it’s definitely more colorful, the space boasts the same kind of serenity and function that makes Brenda’s place so amazing. And the floors! OMG, wait until you see the floors!

This is a renovated, 100 year old home located in Seattle. Sarah and Daniel Dupuis‘ design aesthetic is swoon worthy and their cost effective DIY projects are off the charts cool. They’re even listed on Airbnb, so we might have to pack our bags! We can even watch Six Feet Under when we get there! Check out this beautiful space…

DIY Lantern Light Fixture

Easter sales are in full swing, y’all! This is the perfect time to get a little crafty with a DIY project. There are so many goodies marked down that you can experiment without feeling like you’re being wasteful. I just bought a lovely white lantern on clearance for $5! My plan is to DIY a light fixture for my vintage bathroom. Seriously, I looked at it and just knew how perfect it would be mounted as a chandelier. Lindsay, over at the White Buffalo Styling Co., shared her own version of this fun DIY project some time ago, and I’m so happy to finally share it with you!

Anthropologie House & Home Hacks 2016

Sometimes I walk into Anthropologie and I bask in the glow of the beautiful pieces that would just be so perfect in my home. Then I look at the price tag. A sudden wave of sticker shock washes over me and I feel like I’m committing a crime by just being in the store. What’s a girl to do?

Time to get inspired and get crafty. I can’t think of a single reason to pay that much money for something you can recreate pretty easily and then be proud of later. So in the spirit of inspired DIY, I compiled a few of my favorite Anthropologie hacks. Check it out.

1 Plate Wall Art DIY

Anthropologie Plate Wall Art DIY

This blogger uses a projector to trace out a pretty cool design on her dollar-store-bought plates. If you’re artistically inclined you can totally skip that step and draw your own unique design on the plates. Get the full tutorial here.

2 Paper Lantern DIY

Anthropologie Paper Chandelier DIY

This DIY is probably my favorite. Using coffee filters (yep, those standard white coffee filters), this blogger recreates Anthropologie’s Rhodedenron Chandelier (which comes in at a whopping $1,298), for about $30. Get the tutorial here.

3 Ordinal Dresser DIY

Ok, so this one requires a little bit more elbow grease than the previous DIYs, but it’s well worth it to save over $900. Thrift store finds can become your most coveted pieces. For the full tutorial follow this link.

Go ahead! Get inspired and don’t forget to share some of your favorite DIY projects in the comments! Also, if you’d like to see a few more trending Anthropologie hacks, check out these 14 Anthropologie Decor Hacks to DIY in 2016.
