My first pie

This was actually my practice pie. The one I brought to my mom's looked marginally better but then it got a little roughed up in transport.

No more cardboard box nightstand!

After searching for quite some time I finally found the unique nightstand that I've been hunting for. I picked up this tiny corner secretary at a cool antique shop called Vignettes in Ocean Beach (  

Unfortunately, it was done in an awful shabby pink. The terrible sanding job took away from the pretty details.

But, after many, many, many layers of spray paint, here is what it looks like now:

I added a pretty knob to the drop leaf drawer and I am quite pleased with it.

Look! No more cardboard box!

Bedroom Blues, Part II - Dreamy Bedroom Inspiration

Okay, I'm almost ready to get serious about doing something about the cardboard box night stand situation in my bedroom.  I've been collecting photos of bedrooms trying to get a few ideas for mine.

A chair in lieu of a bedside table seems to be popular


I know that this is a little girl's room (probably has a hipster mom) but I like it anyway. I kinda want a similar hutch or bookshelf in lieu of a nightstand.

Gahh! I love this bedroom. I want to live here.

I saved this photo because it gave me an idea. I want a shelf or cabinet to place my laundry hamper under so it's not such wasted space and to sort of hide it. I'll also use it as a nightstand.

Vintage suitcases at the foot of the bed also seems to be popular. Don't think it's my style though.

Like the mix and match of patterns. Don't care for the stack of books on the floor as the nightstand.

Loving this attic bedroom! Love the girly wall sconces and the fact that bedside tables do not match! Totally cool.

Again, bedside tables do not match, but it is still very very symmetrical which I like

Ooooh how pretty.
I'm a little sad that I'm pretty sure that I will never own a chandelier like this one.

Not really my style but I love the symmetry and patterns.

Hmm, wallpaper? It's pretty

Oooooooh, what I've always wanted. A nook for just my bed. You can shut everything else out and hide =)

So fresh and so clean! Me likey.

Love the silkscreen behind the bed. Hate the bedspread.
Also, notice the bedside tables do not match.

Hmm, pretty cool. N'est pas?

What a cool idea for a nightstand!

I like everything about this except the hanging globe chair.

Oooooh dreamy! A hanging bedroom.
It reminds me of the Ewok village or Avatar

This is sort of what my bed looks like now with the mosquito netting but without the cool exposed wooden beams.

Should I try to make a headboard like this one??

Damn I want this bed! It's only $3,495 CANADIAN dollars. FML.
