In My House

I’d like to thank….


Last night I got a really sweet e-mail from Jenny over from one of my favourite blogs, Little Green Notebook, asking if she could use my pictures from my Ikea Hack of the Rast side tables in a post she was going to do. Of course I said yes, and I professed my love of her blog. 🙂 Titled Hacks of all Hacks (love it!) she did a really nice description on how to do the project. If you haven’t visited her blog, I do suggest you do, as her projects are inspirations to me, and I know also to my friend Erin across the street – we both regularily refrence her work when we’re talking about DIY projects. 🙂

Then, how honoured was I went I saw that (another favourite blog of mine) Urban Grace also did a post this morning after seeing it on the Little Green Notebook blog. The funny thing about her post is that she picked up on the one thing that I wished no one would notice…the twisted knob in the picture. Ha. I always considered it my little “where’s Waldo” aspect to the photo. And there is my TV remote on my bedside table…so you know where I stand with having a TV in the bedroom. 🙂 Two little reminders that this photo was not professionally staged. 😉 And this is coming from me, who has OCD dendencies. 😉

So pop over to these two blogs that I do adore, and thank you again to Jenny for the original blog post, and to Urban Grace for her sweet blog post as well.

Here is the project again, which I did a post about here. :)

    Congrats on the feature!

    FYI the blog 'My Little Apartment' also blogged it after seeing it on LGN. You're rolling in the blog mentions today 🙂

    I am inspired to try this project myself now. What size brass rings did you buy?

    Just wondering – what kind of blinds do you have? I love the look- would love to know where in Canada you found them & what they are called. Thanks! Trina

    I Mat and Connie – I'll check on the size of the rings…I forgot to measure!

    Anonymous – The blinds in my bedroom are from Lowes, and are I think 32" white roman blinds. For the 2 windows it was about $100. 🙂
