I sure hope you are not getting bored with this Guest Room + Office Makeover because today we are on post number three of the reveal.  There are just so many details, it was difficult to share it all in one big swoop.  So, today I am sharing the Office Shelves and my little Ikea hack.

When I saw these *Fabian Wall shelves at Ikea, I fell in love.  We don't have an Ikea in our state and the hubs and I were on a mini vacation to Denver recently... so we made a slight detour.  To be completely honest, I did a lot of planning for the detour and brought the largest luggage we had and kept it empty JUST for this Ikea trip.  I wasn't able to get much to fit in that suitcase, but you better believe I jammed four of those guys in there!

I knew I could paint the metal gold and they would be perfect for our guest room + office.  I love Ikea, so versatile and easy to update per your taste... yay for an Ikea hack!  Did I mention they were only $7.99 a piece.

I just fell in love with these miniature clothes hanger *photohangers.  They come in a set of three.

I've filled the shelves with pretty little items that inspire creativity in me.

How great is this *Galvanized Mail Holder.  I have passed it so many times, not knowing what I would use it for.  But it works perfectly near my desk for holding little notes.

The top shelf holds some of my favorite recent design books, one of my painted jars and a fun floral porcupine picture.

Simple Watercolor Notebook

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

I'm a huge list maker.  I adore paper and always have a handful of  notebooks on hand to keep those lists under control and this Simple Watercolor Notebook was so fun to put together!

Mod Podge
Object for folding

I first, took a plain sheet of watercolor paper and lightly drew a diamond pattern on it.  Then, I slowly started filling in the diamonds with color.  Once, the watercolor was dry I was able to erase the pencil marks.

Note: If you aren't into watercolors, another option for the cover would be your favorite scrapbook paper.

1. First, I took five or six sheets of lined paper and folded them in half.  I had already cut the sheets down, so when folded they would be a perfect long skinny notebook size.

2. Then, I laid out the lined paper onto my chipboard sheet and cut it to size.  Folding chipboard is a little harder, so I used this adorable ruler I bought a few months ago, but really anything hard will work to help fold the sheet.

3. Next was cutting down the watercolor sheet.  I laid the sheet down and traced my chipboard overtop to create the pretty top cover.

4. And finally, I mod podged the watercolor sheet and chipboard together.  Once that had dried, I laid open the cover, added the lined paper sheets and with two simple staples, it was done!

This is a perfect notebook to keep in your purse for those random lists that come to you while out and about!

I'm using mine for a Summer to do list with my two kiddos before school starts up.  Yes, that's right... kiddo #1 is heading off to pre-school two days a week and I'll be a mess!
