• Antique Hutch Revamp (Part 2 of 2)

    I know you’ve been anxiously awaiting this moment. I know you’ve been thinking “Casey, how could you torture me for an entire week with no beautiful AFTER picture of the hutch?” I know, I know…it’s been hard for us both. My friends, the hutch has finally arrived. And she is just as beautiful as I

  • Antique Hutch Revamp (Part 1 of 2)

    So it all started with a text from my mom (Jan)… She wrote, “Look what I got today for FREE!” Attached was the above picture. Swoon. Isn’t she gorgeous? Jan’s friend recently moved, and didn’t have room for this vintage hutch. Luckily, Jan acted quickly and brought it home with her before anyone else could

  • Scrabble Tile Coasters

    Friends..get excited for the CHEAPEST and EASIEST project you’re ever gonna see on the DIY Playbook. See, when the “rookies” get together for a weekend of fun..there is bound to be some DIY action taking place. And this Saturday in St. Louis was no exception. We left the boys at home to do their thing

  • DIY Subway Art

    Subway art has been a HUGE trend in the decorating world for a while now.   I’m making my grand entrance to the subway lovin’ party a little late…but better late than never right?! This gorgeous piece from Restoration Hardware was the art that started it all. Source But at $850 that just was not gonna cut it

  • Personalized Wall Art

    Sometimes when decorating a room, I’m tempted to just go to Home Goods or Bed, Bath, & Beyond and find some matchy matchy art for the walls. Easy peasy and it’s guaranteed to bring a little bit of color to my walls. I used to do this all the time. Finishing a pink and orange

    Bathroom Cabinet Makeover (Part 1 of 2)

    For the past few months, I’ve been searching for a nice little cabinet to go in my bathroom. But, I haven’t had much luck and this little guy has been sitting awkwardly in the corner since we moved in. Sorry about the terrible iPhone pic…but you at least get the point. I wanted a piece

  • Spray Painting a Side Table

    Spray Painting a Side Table

    Meet this cute, quirky table top. Price…FREE!! When I spotted him in the garbage, I quickly swooped him up and was bound to highlight his wonderful potential. I added a few coats of white spray paint and… … that’s it!!! It was that easy to take this old table from drab to fab for super cheap.

  • Shutter Picture Boards

    Shutter Picture Boards

    Everytime I go into our Habitat for Humanity Restore, I get weirdly excited over all of the old wooden doors, windows, and kitchen cabinets…with every item under $20. Then, I realize that I don’t actually own a house. Bummer. Since there will be no loft renovations in our future (gotta keep the landlord happy), I opted out of browsing

  • Stenciled Bookcase

    Stenciled Bookcase

    So, I’ve had this white bookcase for years now. I think I must have purchased it way back in college for about $30. It has since moved all over with me, but has somehow always been a part of my bedroom decor. For the past year, it sat in our bedroom looking like this… Pretty
