Modifying Our Media Center + Keeping It Organized

media center | coffee table | vintage rug (similar) | pouf | arm chair Sometimes a seemingly tiny change can make a huge impact. We always say that if someone walks into a room and can’t pinpoint why they love it, it’s been done well! Our goal is always for the details of an entire room […]

The Guest Room Closet + Modifying Brand New Furniture

clothing rack | hangers | rug | velvet pillows | white coverlet Friends, we wanted to share this post for a few reasons. One, it’s a closer look at the Tree House guest room’s so-called closet (and why it is how it is), two, it’s okay to modify existing furniture to fit your needs perfectly, and […]

Planning for a (Pink!) Multi-Functional Nursery Closet

DIY bi-fold door trim | above closet storage | brass knobs | brass cabinet latches A question that popped up more than a few times during our nursery kick-off was, but where’s the changing table? I brought it up briefly at the very bottom of the post, but today, I’m going to dive into those plans! We […]

Adding Extra Deep Cabinets Above Our Closet

This post is in partnership with TheRTAStore.com. If you’re about to embark on any organized-dream-space renovation, we’re offering a YBH promotion below! Over the course of the last few weekends, we’ve been devoting our time to realizing our Scary Room closet plans – and it’s getting there! The upper cabinets are in place, the bi-folds are trimmed, […]

How We Organize Our Workshop

The secret workshop behind our kitchen has been one of the best decisions we’ve made for our home. A long, long time ago, we had kind of sort of toyed with the idea of knocking down the wall that divided this small room from the kitchen. It would have allowed us to create a larger kitchen, […]

Hooray for Storage: Adding Yet Another Fauxdenza!

I’ve been working from home for several years now, but sometimes, I imagine what it would be like to go back to a bustling office job. When I worked downtown, I loved it. Well, I loved taking the train, grabbing my coffee from the bakery and – for the most part! – I loved the people I […]

Containing It All: Organizing the Bed + Bath

We made a huge amount of progress in the bed and bath over the last week, so much so, that we’re now pulling our favorite hoodies out of a real, live closet. You guys, we have a bedroom closet for the first time in three years! And, and! All of our hair goos, toothbrushes, face potions and […]

Planning for a PAX

One of the things we have been looking forward to most with the bedroom renovation is having a closet – for the first time! We haven’t had proper clothes organization since we moved in two and half years ago; remember when we ripped out the second floor kitchen? We picked up a couple of garment […]

DIY Floating Wood Shelves!

Without a doubt, the most important component of our workshop will be – scratch that, is – the ability for heavy-duty storage. For almost two years, we’ve been tripping over power tools and our bulky air compressor, wading through paint cans (only to realize the can we need is at the bottom of a 10-can stack) […]

The Workshop Plans

There was no back wall demolition this weekend, only a text from our contractor confirming that the door and transom are officially on back order – which is especially confusing, because wasn’t that the case last week and the week before then? We have a lot of questions, like, how does a standard size in the […]
