kitchen inspiration

I absolutely love everything about this kitchen!
The lighting, the backsplash, the inset cabinets, the hardware, and the FLOOR are all to die!

You can not tell me that your heart didn't skip a beat when you first saw this beautifully tiled floor!

Check out THIS post on The Roof Over My Head to find out more info about how she achieved this look.

I think this flooring would also look lovely in a bathroom!


Artwork and mirrors hung from bookcases!

I absolutely love this look! I think its add depth and interest to bookshelf decor.  

It's also an easy look to achieve. Check out THIS House Beautiful article on tips for styling a bookcase.

I've accumulated quite the collection of inspiration images! Take a look...

rock collection display

Remember when I posted inspiration pictures for rock collection displays?  

Well, I finally got around to making one with some of my favorite stones from my childhood collection!

It was really easy to make and I used stuff I already had on hand!

I painted a little wooden clementine crate with some left over gray paint.

Then I cut a piece of cardboard to fit inside the box, and wrapped it with linen.  I used hot glue to secure the fabric on the back.  

After I glued the fabric wrapped cardboard piece into the box, I carefully super glued the rocks onto the fabric in neat rows. 

Quick. Easy. Cheap. Cute. My fav kind of DIY!

It sits perfectly on my iron photo stand!

And today just so happens to been National Rock Collecting Day...ha
