    The DIY “Yarn Wrapped Lamp” links to the “Painting IKEA’s BRAN lamp” tutorial!! I cannot wait to see it. This site has given me TONS of ideas for my soon-to-be-purchased first home 🙂

    Your house is so beautiful I can’t believe how many of your room/ideas I have already pinned. Thanks for all the inspiration. It makes me excited to work on my house.

    Hi Jessie! So impressed with all you have accomplished! I am a designer myself but with three little ones, I struggle to find the time to complete any/all of the ideas that constantly run through my head. You must have some killer time management skills up your sleeve. I’d love if you did a post on how to “get ‘er done”! Love the blog!
