Time to fix up our closet!

I need more closet space! What girl doesn't? I was trying to look for closet make-overs through the web, and what caught my attention were the closets of these celebrities/ style icons! The closets are almost as impressive as the clothes they wear!

Mid-Century Modern Chic
After purchasing a tiny studio apartment in downtown Long Beach, California, Marnie Dorf committed to creating a well-designed space with practical function. The highlight of her studio is her boutique-themed, walk-in closet. Originally designed to fit a Murphy bed and built-in dresser, she decided that sleeping in the cramped space wasn't her style. The closet is now completely dedicated to voguish storage.

Chic Boutique
Dorf has made the closet feel like an additional room by painting the walls a Tiffany blue and installing a crystal chandelier that can be seen from the living room through a transom glass window. By keeping her belongings neatly tucked away in a modern closet system, she has been able to reduce clutter and streamline her 398-square-foot studio space.

How to re-upholster a chair with piping

I recently got some cane chairs from Craig's List that need a little bit of TLC. I've been trying to find instructions on how to add piping to the cushions in the chair. I stumbled across the blog of Many Shades of Shabby by Devonia which features a video on this topic. Click here to watch the video, it's looks very helpful!

Here are the pictures of the chairs :

I love the shape of the large mirror! I think it complements the lamps the owner used and the color of the ceiling. Gives the room a Moroccan feel!

Country Garden Mirror

I found an inspiration on ebay for a mirror that I would like to make with one of my "finds" on craig's list. I still have to find the perfect mirror that will fit the shutters I got. I'm thinking of painting it a lighter color though....
