A Little Inspiration.

When I first started blogging my original plan was to document all the do-it-yourself and home improvement projects I get myself into. One of my favorite things to do every morning for the past few years has been to pour a cup of coffee {or crack open a can of Diet Coke} and check blogs like Apartment Therapy and Design Sponge to get inspired and keep myself busy. Nothing is better than when I get to devour the monthly House Beautiful magazine. I have been so busy lately that I just got around to actually sitting down and flipping through this month's. 
Loved every page but here are a few favorites:
So now I would like to become a blog that will be an inspiration for other people. Over time, I have started changing my blog into more of a personal diary, but honestly it is littered with all my little moments of getting my wheels rolling creatively and my hands dirty. I am always looking for and posting inspiration... I love the whole process of envisioning how a piece or room will turn out.

I also love that when you are a college student, you start investigating {aka Goggle-ing} how to make things cheaper rather than buying it. So a lot of my furniture are thrift store/yard sale goods that I revamped and revived. I am a sucker for a good before-after projects. 


Anyone else crave a little inspiration/home decor with their morning? How about do you love when a certain magazine arrives in your mailbox? Also let me know your favorite home improvement/DIY blogs or websites!
