Office Desk + Gallery Wall Reveal

Finallyyyyyyyyyyyyy…. my two $6 Goodwill cabinets are living their happily ever after in my DIY office desk!
Remember what they used to look like?!
Pretty much like $6 Goodwill cabinets. Who knew they had such a glamorous road ahead of them? Check out their new digs…
Have I mentioned almost all of these wall printables were #FREE?!
Except for this one of course. This photo was inspired by this über creative duo and I could not be more grateful for their inspiration… love it! Thanks Deanne!
Did you catch the tutorial on how to make a hole like this for your cords… in 3 easy steps?
That bad boy is such a lifesaver! Plus, it cuts down on cord clutter and secretly hides everything!

I love it! (And really love that the project is finally DONE!). This space has come a long way from the original plan…

…and I am so dang thankful. Plus, with the $6 cabinets, the DIY desk top, and all the free printables on the gallery wall… this was one super affordable makeover! Tune in FRIDAY for the cost breakdown and the links to all of the art – FREE!
PS. I know there’s a lot to cover & I’m always pretty awful at hitting everything. If you have a specific question… leave it in the comments and I’ll add it to Friday’s post.

Fake It Til you Make It…

ENTRY shelf from IKEA

Truth: I don’t always love my decor choices. To be perfectly honest, we’ve been in this house just under 2 years, and I often find myself making a list of things I want to go back & change (don’t tell Matt). Sometimes, I even kick myself for some of the decor choices I’ve made so… Read More »

Pretty Muddy Chicago


Fun fact: in college, Casey & I ran. Like on a schedule, using a training plan, participated in organized races kind of running. Pretty legit running as far as we’re concerned. Well…. maybe “legit running” is quite the stretch. Legit running these days is like 1/2 marathons, marathons and triathlons. In that sense, we were as… Read More »
