So I'm absolutely in love with the current patterned, cement tile trend! I've seen them used for backsplashes and fireplace surrounds, but I secretly long to have a patterned tile bathroom floor. There are two problems though.

Mid-century modern nightstand with shoe storage building plans

When my boys were babies, we started using a basket to hold their shoes. Well, now they are growing bigger and their shoes are getting larger too. We need a better solution for shoe storage. I decided I could incorporate divided cubbies in a nightstand, and it gave me a chance to try a new idea for a cabinet door that I had been brainstorming.

If you have followed my blog for a while (I want to give you a big kiss!), you may have noticed my design style slowly changing. Yours probably has too! It seems like the design trend is leaning towards modern and retro styles. 

Funny enough, if you would have handed me a dresser with tapered cone feet four years ago, I would have gagged. Nowadays, I want to screw them onto everything! Whether you dig tapered feet or not, I've put together a massive list of 60 Modern decor projects you can build yourself.

Three Way Nesting Coffee Tables Building Plans

We've been in the "new" house for about 9 months now. I've changed my design style over the last couple years, so chose to take very few furniture pieces with me when we moved. One piece dear to my heart is my Industrial Coffee Table I built a while back. It's the project I learned to weld on and remains one of my favorite projects I've ever built. 


Times are a changing and the dark, industrial style no longer fit my living room. I talked to my husband and asked what he'd like to see in a replacement. We have a long, shallow living room and unless I took up half the space with one massive unit, it's hard to actually use a coffee table in the space. A normal coffee table is purely decorative and looks a bit small in the space. I decided a set of nesting tables would be the perfect solution. We can pull the smaller tables out and use them anywhere we want, and when we're done, I can push them back in place and we don't have table-zilla taking over the place.
