this week’s favorite bedroom pins

I’m still pinning like a crazy person – constantly looking for new, beautiful ideas to fill our new home with. Here are my favorite bedroom pins this week.

DIY coat rack

It has been a busy weekend so far. Yesterday Moseyman and I trekked out to the lumber store and picked up some wood so I could start working on some projects for our entryway. As Apartment Diet would say… “start with a corner.” So I picked the corner where our coat hook and bench would go.

Today I worked on our DIY coat rack. I bought some wood that would make a pretty backboard, then asked the nice hardware store worker to cut my wooden dowel into 5 3″ pieces to make ‘hooks’ or ‘pegs’ as I call them.

Once I sanded, glued and screwed everything together, I painted the tips of the pegs with orange-red acrylic paint and voila!

It’s a start right? Next project coming up… the DIY bench!

and the decorating begins…

Happy weekend everyone! What are your plans?¬†Moseyman and I are going to try to make some headway on making our new apartment feel more like a home. Tonight we hung the loooong white linen curtains in our new living room and bedroom. They still need curtain rings so they slide more easily but it’s great to have something up finally! I can’t wait to keep going with the rest of the house!
