Redesigning My Home...


Hey Everyone!
I'm creating another series called Redesigning My Home.
I've had my old sectional sofa for 14 years, don't judge me.
It was all we needed at the time and I didn't want to by anything new because of our kids being soo young. Now that the kids are semi grown and can take better care of things, we knew we needed to buy one. Didn't know baby girl was coming but that's neither here nor there, back the story. We've received so many compliments on how comfortable our old sectional was, so we decided to by another sectional, not the exact one but something similar.








 I know I want to go darker and more dramatic with my colors this year.
 I have one long wall connecting my living room, dining and kitchen, so I have to have this color accented in every room. I went with Vintage Velvet in a Matte Finish, it's beautiful navy blue by
Behr.






This color doesn't due it just, it's more darker on my hall.

DIY Faux Marble Desk


Hey Everyone!
I'm here with a DIY for you all. My almost 10 year old wants to redesign her room. For starters we decided to purging all of her baby stuff and giving a lot to charity.
She wanted to throw out this old IKEA desk her big sister handed down to her but I decided to cover it with some faux marble I had for a while in the back of my cabinet.  
So let's get to it.

Materials you need are:
Faux Marble Contact Paper.
I purchased mine from Amazon
Scissors
Old Credit Card  





As you can see the desk has seen it's better days but its still sturdy and smooth.
Please excuse the floor, we know how 9 years old are, lol..





First, I measured the desk width side and cut it using the grids that the contact paper had on its backside. After cutting it, apply the paper a little at a time making sure the you smooth it out the credit card and tuck the ends under the desk.   



To apply the second piece, try to make sure to get as close as possible to the first sheet.
If you really look, you can see the line but not bad for a first timer..



And we are done!
She really loves her desk and wants me to do more faux marbling.
 Below is a closer look.




Here's another picture.






An Another One!!



I'll be posting more DIY's really soon..
