Box Cushion Makeover

By in DIY, Furniture, I have an opinion

I did it! I finally did it! I bought this chair over a year ago for only $25 with big dreams of dressing it with beautiful, gray wool cushions. After washing the cushion covers and replacing the foam, we lived with the orange, holey and corduroy cushions for over a year. I frowned every time […]

By in I have an opinion, Want

[Images Copyright Focus Features, Photographs by Laurie Sparham] It’s so reassuring to find that movie posters can still be beautiful. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë is one of my top ten favorite novels and I am so excited for this movie. It’s been done before but I have a feeling that this will be the […]
