Our sweet old girl Tulip has crossed the rainbow bridge 🌈 (swipe to see her sweet face) -
-
-
She came to us as a 3 month old rescue pup with birth defects and the sweetest feistiest personality.  She saw us move into this house, add to our family and ran the pup pack. -
-
-
She never met a person or child she didn't love or would flop over for belly scratches for. She is so dearly missed ❤  I know you'll team up with Kaia and dive into a pool of cheese followed by a roll around in all the of the muddy spots you can find -

2 of our pups are snoozing in here as it's nice and cool, thanks to @tiltsmarthome blinds. #sponsored -
-
-
It used to get SO hot with the afternoon sun just heating up the house, but with these blinds I have been able to #getsmart by setting them to temperature sensitive settings!
-
-
-
They close when the temperature hits the level I selected in the app, which not only helps keep the bedrooms cooler but also my energy bill down.
-
-
-
Definitely check out @tiltsmarthome blinds if you are in the market for super easy to use, smart solar blinds!
-
-
-
And make sure to check out my stories to see the temp control settings in the app + watch how easy they are to use! -
-
-
I am thrilled with these so far and am loving them as are the younger human and furry members of the fam! #tilt

I brought out this stunner that used to live in my office (a la fall '18 ORC). -

It's way down on color but a massive punch of pattern and I luurrvvee it. (Picture me karate chopping mixed with cha-cha-cha'ing 💃)

WWTD? If You Build It They Will Sit……..A DIY Daybed

home decor, interior design, diy, west elm, cutout daybed, rectangle daybed, sofa, family room, multipurpose furniture, living room

I wanted to stop in and share another quick what would Tina do post.  This whole series (under post topics) focuses on how I unconventionally solve problems or adapt things to work for us.

Today I’m giving you the down low on that cute daybed I shared the other day here.

That one right there!

Here’s the skinny…..7 years ago I had a space off our old kitchen that was too small for us to use as a dining room but too big for just a chair and side table.  I tried a few things there and hated all of them until I stumbled on this daybed from West Elm.

It was the Cutout daybed and I thought 2 things; 1. Wow that is perfect!  And 2. I can’t spend $550 on it.  Cue the roller coaster that is finding the perfect piece only to dash your excitement at the price tag.

I was not to be swayed away from it, it was EXACTLY what we needed. So in my true “can do” ‘tude I googled and found some building plans for the same basic daybed shape (who are we kidding, most sofa style daybeds have the same basic structure amiright?!) Eureka!!  We are going to build a daybed! (Here’s the link to the basic instructions we used)

Here’s an image of Ana’s rendering from the plans for the West Elm Rectangular Daybed, the base we used to build ours. (see link above from Ana White)

So we purchased the wood necessary to make said daybed, including plywood sheets for the back and sides. And got to work.  (I already had the paint on hand from a previous project, and owned all the tools and nails)

I’m sorry I have no pics of this process, this was before my days with a smartphone and a good camera.  But it was simply a matter of building the frame as instructed while altering the height of the arms.  Then got creative with a design.  Now this is REALLY technical….. I used a big tupperware bowl and traced circles on the plywood sheets to get the pattern that I wanted.  Me = work smarter not harder. Yay for tupperware!!  We then used a jigsaw to cut out the circles and put the whole thing together (back to instructions for the assembly)!  After a coat or 3 of paint, voila you have the West Elm cutout daybed!  And we only spent $50!! That’s quite a savings for the same $500 daybed.

Where there’s a will there’s a way!  It’s incredibly versatile and we have used this in a few spaces in our current house now. Here it is in my Mom’s Oasis before it was Mom’s Oasis.

Then I moved it into the basement family room where the kids made it their fave chill spot.

And most recently up into the main living area where I happen to prefer to sit!  It has needed disassembling and reassembling a couple of times to fit through some corners but it’s sturdy as all get out and I LOVE it.
