  3. 1. I NEVER see stuff like that on the street around here. You must get to it first!
    2. My boyfriend and I give each other hardback books for gifts so that we can one day have a fantastic book shelf! Nice.

  4. I totally dig the typewriter and the zig-zag afgan (just like my grandma used to make!). Spray-paint is a girl's best friend in my opinion...

  5. How come when I spray paint something it looks all...spraypainty, but when you spraypaint something it looks brand new?!?

  8. Oh my gosh, I am so jealous. I have absolutely no storage in my student apartment. Seriously, I keep my socks in my nightstand.

    It's wonderful!

  10. Sorry I'm a little late with this, but I have a question about your pretty windowboxes. I love the look but haven't put up windowboxes of my own yet because I'm worried about dirt-colored runoff staining the walls underneath? Don't see anything like that in your photos, but wondering if you've noticed anything. Thanks!

  11. So you just straight up spray paint it? Like, don't sand or anything?
    New to the blog & love it!
