TGIF Let’s Chill


What a week it was. Wasn’t it? The sun is out in San Francisco and my garden is in bloom. That has meant for me that I have somehow found a bit of extra motivation to get me going around my home. When I can’t take on bigger renovations I focus on making things beautiful one detail at a time.

Why? Because like most things in life many little actions or steps in the right direction can, in the end, get ya to where you want to go – in this case, it’s having a beautiful home (affordably). Many of those details to make that dream a reality are linked here. Also, in case you missed it. Here is a list of my top 10 favorites DIY’s anyone can do anytime to make their home sing. It’s a must-read y’all.


Okay, here is what I am obsessed with this week:


  • It’s happy hour soon. But for this happy hour, I am serving my favorite iced coffee. Why? Because frankly, iced coffee is my happy hour – but every single day. I love Blue Bottle, they started locally in San Francisco, and I have been drinking them for over a decade. Good news! They just started shipping nationwide. You gotta try em.

My Fav (non) Power Tool:

  • I get it. I really do. Power tools can be intimidating. But this miter box and saw were my first ever non-power tool. It’s super safe to use and worked wonders as I created my first ever box moulding accent wall. Again it’s super safe, non electric, affordable, and helps you do all the necessary cuts (easily) for this awesome DIY. Start with this tool and work your way up. You got this!

  • It’s no wonder that this room was the clear winner – like by a long shot. I just can’t stop obsessing via The light just dances across this room. I love the warm walnut-inspired woods, a ton of visual interest, and the most aesthetically placed shelf styling ever. It’s just so cozy. Don’y ya just want to curl up and take a seat?

I Got Ya a Code / Giveaway

You won’t regret it. Pardon me while I stare out the window for the mailman til’ my new chairs arrive.
