DIY nightstand transformation

Greetings from Connecticut! 

Moving into a new place can be SO much fun to decorate, and as you grow into adult hood you also start to realize your style preference changes, and when you start a new relationship you just can't expect your partner to have the same decor style as you...

When we moved into our new place, my boyfriends bedroom furniture was a dark oak, and it was totally not my style. He only had one night stand, because his apt was very tiny. But I just needed to do something with that ugly nightstand, and decided to go with GOLD! He totally doesn't agree with the color...but this is why he is the BEST BOYFRIEND in the world, because he accepted it just because it makes me happy. Gosh, I love him so much! 

I think it looks AMAZING. All I did was get the Rustoleum Gold spray paint from Home Depot, just $4. I unscrewed the handles and spray painted those separately. It took about 3 coats of spray paint. ALWAYS, always, always allow at lest a minimum of 25 minute dry time between coats, because you do not want "cracks" "wrinkles" on your nightstand. The only flaw I can complain of is the coating allows for visible fingerprints when being handled. I did not want to add any type of varnish, because it will dull the luster of this gold spray paint, so since there is no protection on this, there are fingerprint marks which can be wiped clean and occasional scratches which can be touched up. 

Enjoy! Send me photos if you did the same <3 p="">

Ikea hack, NOT floor lamp

Hi all! So I am in the process of organizing and decorating my new at-home studio. Since there is only one window, I needed to get more lighting. So I decided to give the ikea NOT lamp a little sass.

I purchased a can of the Rustoleum Metallic Gold. Make sure to blue tape the parts that you don't want painted. It only took two coats and it dried in minutes! 

I truly love the end result, super easy and cheap!

Chapel of the Holy Dove

Hubby, son and I decided on taking a cross-country road trip from Anaheim, CA to Danbury, CT on November 2011. One of our many stops was the Grand Canyon, after we were done with that we were on our way to Flagstaff, AZ where we came across this stunning beautiful small chapel. We were amazed, and fell in Love with it! It's a small church that offers free religious books, we grabbed two for our son. The chapel is very small with a large triangular window on the back end. This stop is one of our most memorable, not only for the chapel, but the amazing views we had while taking that drive. The chapel is located on Highway 180 between Grand Canyon and Flagstaff.
