Nothing warms my cold, calloused heart like a well-done DIY version of an expensive store-bought thing. And nothing tickles my awkward little funny bone like Michelle’s blog at Decor and the Dog.
…Making this post a beautiful combination of my favorite things. Check out this goodness, yall:
Well hello, dear View Along the Way readers. My name is Michelle. I blog over at Decor and the Dog. Don’t worry. My blog isn’t one of those blogs where I pretend like my dog writes the posts and we discuss what fire hydrants he peed on or how many bones he ate that day. Although some days, that may be better.
Today I am going to share with you one of my least shared before and afters.
The room just didn’t feel like us. The comforter was actually cute but had seen better days. Thank you, darling puppy. The headboard was a hand-me-down that now lives in our guest room. The end tables are from Crate and Barrel. They were one of our first furniture purchases. Everything else in the room was useless junk.
While browsing the interweb one day, I found the most beautiful headboard. The window headboard from West Elm. It cost way more than I was willing to spend. I jokingly asked the husband-figure if he could build it. He mistakenly answered “probably.”
We He got to work building the copy cat headboard. I got to work finding new bedding. I figured since I was ripping off West Elm’s headboard, I should at least buy their lovely parachute duvute. Why don’t we throw some striped sheets in too? Sure. Why not?
Thanks for having me over mama of two!!
