Gold Coffee Table DIY

Lately I've been really loving gold accents, as you can see from my sister's post here. Gold details make things look elegant and feminine. It just so happened I was in need of a coffee table and I really wanted one with a golden touch ;). I scoured the internet for options and inspiration and found some tables I love. Most were out of the budget, but some, like the ones below, seemed like an easy enough DIY project.





I knew my best bet for an affordable DIY would be Ikea, so I searched and quickly found this hack using the VITTSJO coffee table, and loved it! It was perfect for what I was looking for.



With a can of spray paint and some time I was able to get this great looking table! The total look cost roughly $57.

I love Ikea hacks, especially when they are so easy but make a huge impact. What Ikea hacks do you love?

Drought-Friendly YARD Inspiration

As both of us prepare to move back to California (hurray!!!), one major consideration on my mind has been the ongoing drought. A large entertaining-friendly yard is a MUST on my future home list, but I also want to be considerate of the water situation and not create a yard that requires too much of such a precious resource. Luckily, Pinterest is full of endless yard inspiration, many of which require little to no water! Check out some of my favorites:

Look for Less: Moroccan Leather Pouf

I've had my eye on a leather pouf since Serena&Lily came out with their version a while back. It's chic enough for any living room, but I especially love it in this nursery design below.

Moroccan Leather Pouf

Serena&Lily's version goes for $450. While the nuLOOM version goes for $459.

Luckily, RugsUSA has a version nearly identical to the nuLOOM one for a fraction of the price (HERE). Plus, with all of the deals they always have going on, it's a total steal.
