I recently booked a moving company for our move and was reading their damage coverage policy where it said they won’t cover any damage to “pressed wood furniture (i.e. Ikea-esque furniture)” because it isn’t meant to be moved. And I laughed because well, that’s basically all we own! I have learned a lot of about how to live with and love Ikea and other assemble-it-yourself furniture which might perhaps be a separate post but my #1 tip? Avoid veneer and only buy the solid wood pieces! But my favorite thing about build-it-yourself furniture is all the potential to customize it! Of course, my most popular Ikea inspired project is O’s play kitchen but we also made a whole curving wall of built-ins out of the ever popular Billy bookcase and that’s not even all that creative. So today I’m bringing you some of the coolest and most creative Ikea inspired projects I can find. As always, please click through and pin from the source!
Father’s Day Gourmet Popcorn Giveaway, sponsored by Tastebuds Popcorn | littleredwindow.com
I grew up in a popcorn loving household. My parents had this one specific (and huge) bowl that was just for popcorn and nothing else. So when we saw that bowl come out we knew it was popcorn time and we got excited. My mom sometimes made microwave, she sometimes used the air popper with the butter melting tray on top and there were even a few exciting times when my dad managed to find the kind of popcorn that comes in it’s own little stovetop pan with a handle and we took that camping and popped it over the campfire. So yeah, we love popcorn. And O has totally inherited the love. Which is why I’m way excited to be teaming up with some other awesome bloggers and Tastebuds Popcorn to giveaway 3 medium size bags of their popcorn in any flavors you want for Father’s Day (and they have 200+ flavors!)! How awesome is that?! Wouldn’t your dad love it? (if you can bring yourself to give it away…)
So I’m sure we all have a story of trying out a recipe from the internet only to have it not really work out. So today I’m sharing with you my all time favorite Pinterest Recipes from the web. Not all of these have the best pictures ever but I’ve made them all more than once and I can vouch for their deliciousness! Please pin from the original sources!
I’ve been sort of mentioning it for a while but for the last two months or so, we were house hunting and a couple of days ago we closed on our brand new home (we aren’t moving in just yet though)! We are super excited although it will definitely be an adjustment for us. I was thinking about it and I’ve pretty much lived exclusively in apartments for the last almost 15 years. Which is pretty par for the course in urban areas but I can imagine, to some of you who live in other parts of the country, you can’t quite imagine what that’s like. So today, in honor of our new place and to say goodbye to our old place I wanted to share the top 5 things I’m most excited about and the top 5 things I will miss about high rise living.
