Behind the Scenes: Bedroom Makeover

Behind the Scenes: Bedroom MakeoverI’ve been working on fixing up our bedroom lately and wanted to share a little bit of the behind the scenes today. The current task: finding a bed side table. I want it to be unique (and affordable), so I’m going the diy route. And while I’m no furniture builder, there are a few amazing tutorials out that that look easy enough!

Behind the Scenes: Bedroom MakeoverAfter snapping a few pictures of the space with my new Intel Tablet, I went directly to Pinterest to start looking for ideas. The best part about using a tablet as a tool is that I was able to get an idea of my space, browse for ideas, and order all my supplies from the space place. The Intel Tablet RealSense technology also allows you to measure distances on photographs, so I didn’t even have to bust out my tape measurer in order to determine what size the table needed to be.  I basically just took a picture and the camera measured the distance between my bed an the window. Seriously, how cool is that?!

After browsing a bunch of DIYs, and a few cake recipes here and there, I found that these seven projects were were totally do-able and right up my alley:
