Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door

 I will never have a traditional door in my home ever again. Why is it that most homes these days have the same old cookie cutter look? What happened to character? I want to drive down a neighborhood street and feel like I’m in a drive-threw gallery exhibit! …. (I hereby call the rights to the drive-threw gallery exhibit idea!) These four doors will put yours’ to shame.

Room Tour // Amber Dominique


From mechanic to motocross racer, I welcome you to the bedroom of one bad ass chick, Amber Dominique! 


This past weekend Jeff’s best friend Amber invited us over for dinner, have a few beers and watch the motocross race. While she cooked us mouth watering steaks (steaks so delicious there was absolutely no need for steak sauce), I remained occupied up in her newly revamped bedroom taking pictures. 


With white walls, Amber decorated her room with her eclectic style, resembling a romantic midevil feel. The way this girl blended chic with hardcore is inspiring. Her love for a good ink job isn’t only displayed on her body, but on her walls as well. The gallery display of her favorite art work couldn’t be more perfectly placed, and her vanity area displaying her folk hat collection is one to die for! 


I immediately fell in love with the “his & hers” bed sides she created around two shelves as nightstand alternatives. Centered above each shelf is a traditional art print by Dane Smith. On “his” side, the shelf is painted black and on “her” side, the shelf is painted white.


I am so moved by Ambers style and bedroom makeover that I just had to share!

Stairways to Heaven 

Can we design our own stairway to heaven? If so, consider me dead… Kidding! I would have never thought of decorating my stairs until I saw these babes. Now it’s one of the first tasks on my to-do list. To me it seems likes it’s a new rising trend. Atleast on my news feed anyway. Who knew that by adding some color and pattern to the face of your stairs could make such a bold statement?

DIY // Cushioned Headboard 

When I found this beautiful Turkish tapestry in the thrift store I knew right away that I wanted to make a statement piece out of it. I needed a headboard for my bed and was on a tight budget. The only supplies I bought were the tapestry and an old mattress pad for the cushioning. Both were bought from the thrift store with a total of $8. Here’s how I made it! 

Supplies:

-Scissors

-Tapestry 

-Measuring Tape

-2×4 Piece of Plywood (twin size headboard) 

-Staple Gun 

-Foam Mattess Topper

– Wood Glue 

-Fabric Glue

-Buttons

  1. First, I cut the mattress pad to measure 2×4 (the size of the plywood) and glued it down on one side of the plywood with wood glue.
  2. After the glue dried, I laid the tapestry flat out on the floor, set the plywood on top of it while carefully choosing it’s placement so that the boarder design on the tapestry matched the edges of the headboard. 
  3. Once I had it set aligned the way I wanted it, I cut around the edges of the wood leaving about 4″ extra inches. 
  4. Once it was all cut, I feld the fabric over one edge of the wood nicely, while stapling it to the back of the headboard. 
  5. Once the first side was all stapled, I continued to the opposite side and repeated step 4 until all four edges were done. 
  6. Last, I flipped the headboard over and started tufting with the staple gun making 5 even rows and 3 columns. 
  7. After tufting, I just used fabric glue to stick some buttons down and cover the staples! 

And there you go. That’s  my poor lazy girls DIY Cushioned headboard tutorial!
