Small Space Solution: Cane Chairs

We’ve blogged a lot about the benefits of using transparent, low profile, or lightweight furniture in a small space, but if your tastes are more traditional, the classic cane chair is another good bet…Woven cane allows light to filter through the chair, minimizing the amount of visual space it occupies. Cane chairs are also fairly easy to find at thrift stores. Damaged cane can be rewoven and/or painted for not too much money.

Two Little Girls, One Pretty Room...

Kristy from Houston Texas who runs a cool DIY blog called Libbie Grove Design shared these pics with me not long ago. She had purchased the Love Candy print in Cotton Candy & finally got around to hanging it in her daughters' room! They loved it! I love how all the pinks mesh together so nicely don't you? It seems every aspect of the design was thought out carefully....from the pink ceiling to the ART on the walls! This is definitely a space little girls can enjoy! Thanks Kristy for sharing…

I had several conversations with myself over the course of a few months. Eventually I found the perfec…
