New Boudoir

Closet addition, Peonies, Sally Hansen Nail Effects, Yummy Veggies, Vintage Shoe Clips

This was quite the eventful weekend!
My pops, the hubs and I all put our trusty tool belts on and transformed my office/2nd bedroom into the most perfect shoe/dressing boudoir! I have been outgrowing my closet for quite sometime now so the hubs and I decided it was the perfect time to get our DIY on and go for it! 
In between using a power drill (see here), I found time to finally try out the Sally Hansen Nail Effects (obbbbbsessed!), pick up some amazing peonies, and make some yummy veggies. All in all I'd say it was truly a perfect weekend...happy girl, happy shoes. :)

How was your weekend?

Can we have your husband call my husband and explain to him why this truly IS a good idea?
When I explain this useful repurposing of our extra bedroom my husband just looks at me like I am crazy.
Thanks!

P.S. Sooooo jealous of you right now!!!

OH.MY.GOSH. Your closet/2nd bedroom is crazy amazing now. Hope you enjoy it... think clothes and shoes look so much nicer when you can space them out to appreciate them.
And, your veggie dish looks so simple yet incredible.
