DIY Home Office Desk

As a graphic designer I spend most of my days sitting in front of a computer screen. With that being said a few months ago we were cleaning out our spare bedroom/my home office and I made a comment to my husband that I would love a new desk.

"I want something cute!" That is all I had to tell my husband before his DIY brain went off measuring and making a plan. A few days later I came home and he had bought everything including the paint color. Yes, the paint color I was little nervous about this part since I had no say but he picked perfectly what I had imagined. #husbandoftheyearaward

This is where it all started just a slab of wood (sized 2'x4') and 4 spindles. I used a stain for the top of the desk and the turquoise paint for the legs and sides.

Life is a Beautiful Ride – Bike Themed Baby Shower

A chalkboard with Life is a Beautiful Ride greeted guests as they arrived to a shower grander than I would have ever expected this past Saturday. Let's just say I was in tears after walking in the door.

If you know my husband and I you'd know that if the weather is nice we are out on our bikes. So a bike themed shower seemed fitting. My BFFs took that idea and went BIG. From the smallest details of the drinking mason jars wrapped in fabric and small wooden bikes to the cute wire cupcake toppers. I swipes all of the small wooden bikes after the shower and going to add them to baby TT's room.
