$100 Upholstered Velvet King Sized Headboard

We got a King bed which meant we needed a new headboard! Our house is a 1960s brick ranch with little rooms. Getting a King bed means our room is literally a BEDroom with space for a small dresser, two bedside tables, and the bed. But we’ve wanted a King bed for a while so it’s totally worth it! We don’t have the space for a big bed frame or headboard so we were limited in out headboard search. We decided we needed a simple bedframe with a headboard that wouldn’t stick out too much since space is a premium.  Continue reading “$100 Upholstered Velvet King Sized Headboard”

I love marquee lights and wanted to use them in my wedding decor but don’t like the price tag attached to them. Thanks to 1,000+ Pins on Pinterest, I found inspiration to make my own Marquee lights.

My building manager offered to paint an accent wall so I took the opportunity to make my fireplace pop and my mantle more pronounced. A large empty frame took some serious real estate on the wall. I couldn’t find an inexpensive one so I made this for about $13. (I also made the stocking hangers and re-vamped the vase and sticks. Details on those to come!)

I’ve seen a whole bunch of Pins on Pinterest for “Kate Spade inspired storage boxes” and thought I’d try it myself. It was easy and looks great! I made one box for about $4 which is a whole lot better than $54 for three boxes from Kate Spade.
