Furniture Shopping

I was recently invited to check out our local CORT Clearance Center and since the big DIY room makeover goal this year is our unfinished basement remodel/man cave, I decided to give them a visit. Shopping for discount furniture is on our radar and I’d never been to their store. Have you? @cortclearance #CORTclearance @diyshowoff CORT-Furniture @cortclearance #CORTclearance @diyshowoff I enjoyed the selection of high quality CORT Certified furniture. I was surprised to learn that CORT’s furniture quality is higher than other discount brands with more durable fabric and stitching and real wood instead of particle board, etc.  CORT-Furniture @cortclearance #CORTclearance @diyshowoff CORT-Furniture @cortclearance #CORTclearance @diyshowoff There was a large selection to chose from too!

Hallway Paint Refresh

Remember our bathroom remodel? So light and pretty!

LampsPlus Monroe Adjustable Wall Sconce

All of a sudden, the beige hallway felt drab in comparison. The yellowed color just seemed “dirty” next to all that glam. Hey! It’s nothing a quick coat of paint can’t cure!

Hallway before:

A lot doorways in one small area means a lot of trim in this old house so FrogTape® MultiSurface is a must have for creating crisp clean lines, especially in hard to reach spots.

Tape off trim in hard to reach areas.

Burnish edges of tape using thumbnail to activate the Paintblock technology and begin painting.

The difference is subtle when all is said and done but you can see how much brighter the new wall color is during the progress…

While the second coat of paint is still wet, carefully remove FrogTape by pulling away from paint.

After:

I love how clean and fresh it looks and since there is no natural light in this space, the new light color makes a huge difference to me.

Of course you know what I see, right? A big blank canvas for a future painted accent wall using FrogTape! To be continued!

I received compensation to complete this project for using FrogTape® products. All opinions, projects and ideas are based on my own experience.

Small Apartment Nursery Nook Reveal

I’ve enjoyed creating two nursery spaces the last couple of months. The first one was the guest room/nursery space in my own home (see links below).

Guest Room/Nursery reveal @diyshowoff

Today is my daughter’s birthday! Happy Birthday, Ali! Creating a space for baby is one of her birthday gifts. Fun!

This one is a temporary space (functioning as a nursery until spring of next year). I call this sweet little room the nursery nook since it’s located in a small one bedroom apartment. Until I rescue photos from my old laptop, this is the only before picture I could find of the space:

bedroom-before

This part of the bedroom was made into a ‘dressing room’ type closet space a few years ago since storage is limited (I promise I’ll dig out the small apartment before and after pictures in the near future) but now part of the one bedroom is a cute little nursery nook for a soon to arrive little boy.

As you can see, it’s not super baby themed since it’s a temporary/rental space. We’re saving a fun boy-themed nursery design for next summer.
