I used regular silver thumbtacks that I had on hand to add the detail to this inexpensive wooden table that I painted navy blue. It took me less than an hour. That’s my kind of DIY.
Ever since I posted about my bedroom last week — I’ve realized that I actually did miss color. I love the quietness of a monochromatic room but color brings life. I’ve added in a teal blue for a little splash of color. I painted over an old painting and hung it above the DIY framed art.
I also DIY’d the box with the copper pull.
I added a basket beneath the table for a little texture and a place to hold my favorite sequined pillow — since honestly it’s not that comfortable to lean up against.
The thing I’m trying to remember as I focus on making a home is that it’s the small details that really make me smile. It doesn’t take a pile of cash to make something beautiful — even if that would be nice — it’s the time and love that I pour into transforming this place one small project at a time.
And as always —
