My Bold + Beachy Master Bedroom Makeover

My Bold + Beachy Master Bedroom Makeover

I have been working tirelessly behind the scenes here at the House of TDC to actually complete many of the spaces in my home. Working full time as a DIY + Design Blogger quite frankly leaves your home in full time project mode virtually all of the time if your pipeline is even marginally full. For those of you who happen to do what I do for a living you know this first hand, but for those of you who don't, this is chaotic on the best of days and completely wild and untamed when things are busy. Feeling like I have at least completed something in this house not only makes me feel a little less guilty for the sheer amount of crazy that my babes are exposed to and the oddball lifestyle that comes from being a Maker, but it helps me keep some of that crazy at bay on a daily basis...

DIY Custom Modular Hanging Wood + Wire Wall Shelves with Washi Tape Trim

This is another project in my sweet Blakey's Boho Chic room that was so simple and took literally minutes to complete from start to finish. My favorite kind... These easy DIY wood and wire wall shelves are as custom as you like and quite modular indeed. You can add on in width or height as needed and trim them out in any color you like!

It's Friday I'm In Love: Edition 11

It's Friday I'm In Love: Edition 11

It's Friday! Somehow as my boy has gotten a bit older and is now in school 5 days a week, I am so much more aware of the days and that means Fridays are now something I look forward to from first thing Monday morning on. It's kind of a bummer I have to admit. I think I preferred living in bliss and completely in ignorance of which day of the week it is or even what month, much of the time. But... such is life, right? 

As I have been working my fingers to the bone on some amazing projects here at the House of TDC (literally I'm afraid... bloody knuckles and all), I am dreaming about all of the things I would love to buy with the simple click of a button. Maybe if that tree right there was actually made of money, I could make it so... ... Read More

Free DIY Furniture Plans: How to Build a Children's Two Tone Chair

Free DIY Furniture Plans: How to Build a Children's Two Tone Chair

On Monday we posted plans for a Children's Two Tone Play Table, and today the most adorable chair to go along side it. I will definitely be building this set, I just can't quite decide who it will be for... the bird or the bug. Probably my older boy, but I'm not entirely sure of my vision for his space just yet. I can finally see the space coming together for the bird, thank gawd, and I can see all of the various pieces I would love to have in his room and it's going to be amazing! Unfortunately he would probably need to move into the master bedroom to make it all of it work so I will be downsizing my 'vision' substantially. Once a dreamer, always a dreamer... Xx... Rayan
