An Organized Garage = Happy DIYers (+ a Giveaway!)

Our plans for the garage were a bit of a roller coaster. Initially, we thought we’d hang some hooks, get our bicycles off the floor and call it a day. But then we remembered, ha, this is us!, and considering we seemingly love to add an element of extra work to most things (busted), we thought, but how can we make it a space we really,KEEP READING >

Milo’s New Look

When we last left off with our Milo Baughman chair, we were so sure we were going bold.

Let’s Party with West Elm (+ We Want to Hang Out!)

(If you’re counting, that would make it 8 months after we initially ordered Door #1.) In the meantime, we’ve spent a few hours on the really littleKEEP READING >
