World Market "Aiden" Coffee Table Knock-off


This may be my favorite piece I've built so far. It is actually something for my own home, so I may be a bit biased, but a lot of love went into this table.

Caramel Cashew Macaron Recipe

This is a not a food blog. I have no intention on turning it into a food blog, but...

I was recently reading a post from KariAnne from Thistlewood Farms about beginning blogging. Although I have been blogging for over a year, I'm always open to good advice. She suggested that treat the content of your blog like you would a lunch date with a good friend. What would you talk about?

Don't worry, I would likely spend most of lunch talking about furniture or what do to with my bathroom, but there is a side of me that I haven't shared with you all yet. I LOVE to bake! Seriously, I go through powdered sugar like nobody's business. I consider baking to be a considerable portion of who I am.

I have been urged by family and friends for years to go into the baking business. I don't see that path in my future, but I figured it was time to start sharing some of my favorites with you. 

Let me know what you think? Do you guys like the recipes? Or should I go back to the garage? Anyways, on with the sugar!

DIY Steciled Herringbone Pillow Covers (via Home Coming)

Let's welcome back Kayla from Home Coming everyone! Kayla knows how to speak to me. She must have read my mind and known that I am on the hunt for cute accent pillows. She kindly offered to share her tutorial on how to make a stenciled herringbone pillow cover today, and here it is.

Hello Pneumatic Addict Furniture friends! I'm so happy to be back here. And today, I'm hoping all of you can help me make a design decision.

For my most recent project, I decided that I wanted to add a little flair to two large, navy pillow covers I recently purchased from Ikea. After months of searching for a navy pillow cover with a fun design on it, I decided I needed to do what we all know best, and DIY it!

Junk Pickin' in January

January has hit me hard people. 

I made a conscious choice to slow down on furniture this month in the hopes to recouporate from the past two months of holidays and boutiques. 

I'll be honest, its been nice. 

I have put in some garage hours over the past couple of weeks. I built my Industrial Farmhouse Table and have spent several hours on a computer armoire that I will share in a couple days. 

Right around New Years, I had the chance to go junk pickin' in a cool little town about an hour away.

Industrial Farmhouse Table


Hi everyone! I'm still waiting for our laptop to be repaired, so in the meantime I've been taking trips to my in-laws to use their desktop. Remember last April when refinished a craiglist dining table? You can read about it here.

Double X Trestle Console



Happy New Year everyone! For Christmas, my in-laws very generously decided to take us skiing in northern Arizona. The husband took some hilarious video of us on the slopes with his Go-Pro. Once I can find them I'll get one loaded up here.
