cure stalled…

I would love to know how people actually finish every single cure task on time! This is my second attempt to get my house in order and my efforts have completely fallen off. With that said. I did manage to finish a few projects. It’s a step in the right direction.

I needed a dresser and saw an awesome Ikea Hack on design*sponge (LOVE d*s). One trip to Ikea (thank you, zipcar) and I now have bedroom storage.

My other project was less intensive. Since my plants are still thriving (hey now!), I wanted to give them a proper home. Ikea to the rescue once again as their frosta stools were the perfect size. The painted surface was inspired by this hack from door sixteen.

This weekend, I’m headed to the One of a Kind Show in Chicago. Held at the Merchandise Mart, hundreds of artists and designers gather to showcase and sell their wares. I loved it last year and cannot wait to go back. The cure may be on the back burner but shopping for it never ends.


Oh Snap: New Bedding!

I’m excited about my new bedding. When I started the Apartment Therapy cure, I found this amazing set from DwellStudio for my inspiration set.



Since, it was $300 bucks, I thought the Target version would be a suitable alternative.  Either way, procrastination got the best of me and 3 months later-no new duvet set.

Well, I’m so happy that I waited because I just found the original set on sale  (One Kings Lane is my new favorite website. It’s the place where sales are events!)  The original is only $30 dollars more than what I found at Target and 427472384723 times better quality. The kicker: I got a $25 credit just signing up on their mailing list. My final total: $119 ::happy dance::

Hopefully, this will be a great base to design the rest of the room. My Fall cure is going to be a One Room Treatment and there is MUCH to be done!
