Our Colorful Bedroom Makeover

Colorful Bedroom MakeoverIt’s finally here!! Our colorful bedroom makeover!! I’ve been working on this for so long, that I can’t believe I’m actually posting about it.

DIY Mounted Wall Desk for Two

DIY Mounted Wall DeskHappy 2019 friends! What better way to start the new year than by getting your work area organized?! When Ryan and I moved to Brooklyn last year, we needed a solution to the problem of having two computers but no designated room for an office. We wanted desks to accommodate both of our work areas, but not overpower the size of our living room (it’s an open floor plan that leads into the kitchen). Essentially we wanted it to be functional and offer some storage for our small apartment, without looking clunky or disorganized since any guest that come over will see it.
