Build a Platform Bed on Wheels


When Ashley from Shanty 2 Chic sold her house, she sold her furniture right along with it. Ashley knew she’d want to build new pieces for the spaces and her first mission was getting everyone’s bed off the floor. For her oldest son, Ashley built a platform bed following plans from Ana White and added on locking casters for even more style. Want to build your own? Ashley says, “This bed is definitely a project for beginners. It’s SOOOOOO easy to build, and you can build and finish it in an afternoon!”

IKEA Cabinet Mirror Makeover


A few years ago, Maryann from Domestically Speaking took an inexpensive IKEA cabinet and turned it into a beautiful piece for her daughter’s room. I actually had the very same inexpensive IKEA cabinet she transformed and I am seriously blown away. Sadly, my cabinet did not survive four moves and is now long gone, but seeing Maryann’s awesome makeover makes me wish I could get it back!
