ORC Week 5 | DIY | How to Hang Removable Wallpaper

The removable wallpaper for my daughter’s boho bedroom makeover is mid-way through installation. Today I’m talking about the process, and sharing a few tips that make this DIY a little easier, if you want to try it yourself. Wallpaper can make a huge impact on a space. Our home is rented, though, and traditional wallpaper can be tricky to remove. Spoonflower has been on my radar for years, as they have a huge range of wallpaper designs, all of which are… View Post

After moving one of the twin beds out, the blank wall felt unbalanced. Moving the bookcase over there fixed the problem. The bedside cabinet is a placeholder until… View Post

They do sofas – and chairs, and chaise longues – very well. Sofas & Other Upholstered Seating So pretty. They have a huge range of fabrics,… View Post

So, I built a DIY live edge desk top to turn the space into a double-duty office and vanity area. Where and How to Buy Live Edge Wood Live edge wood (aka waney edge) is where the natural edge of the wood is kept rather than cut straight, leaving an… View Post
