Be on the look out this week for a tour of our guest room/office. For now, here’s a little sneak peak. I have an “L” shaped desk, with a shelf above the long side. I use my hot glue gun all the time and keep my glue sticks in mason jars. I painted clipboards white [continue…]

diy: hanging light

I shared Gabe’s room yesterday and mentioned (at least I think I did) that there were a couple other projects I had in mind. This morning I did one!
