DIY ‘Book’ Bookends

This DIY is on the ‘small project’ side and definitely dings high on the ‘cute-ometer’ scale. But these BOOK-ends are an easy/fun DIY with stuff that you probably already have.

Orcondo Update

Things have been getting MEGA exciting over at Orcondo. For a while, this renovation of the condo I’m moving into with my boyfriend was super boring.

Its extremely stressful, you feel totally helpless, stupid, embarrassed, full of regret, and out of control. You are scrambling for hours and blaming each other for everything that is missing,… Read More …

Master Bathroom

The master bathroom is almost finished, with just a few small things outstanding (see the ‘before’ here). The construction stopped a few weeks ago so we’ve been able to use most of it, but technically we can’t call it done quite yet. Regardless, I figured that an update was in order. Our contractor was a… Read More …
