an update on the photography studio design project! yahoo and a bit of a behind the scenes on the creative process. http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/04/a-photography-studio-design-project-the-creative-process
This fun design project is well underway and we are knee deep in DIY's and furniture boxes. I am happy to report that the walls are now as white as can be and absolutely gorgeous against the black trim and exposed brick. It only took several coats of primer and paint to rid the space of it's ...

an easy (and inexpensive)   #diy  project  that is perfect for a fun #mothersday gift or unique home decor! the best kind of project don't you think? http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/04/easy-diy-neon-neutral-planter-bag
As a DIY blogger, you can probably imagine that people expect handmade awesomeness from me all. the. time. And why shouldn't they? After all, re-imagining everyday items and creating something from nothing is supposed to be where I excel. Sometimes that's true - other times... not so much.

Yahoo for Fridays! And of course for cute things to decorate with too! http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/04/its-friday-im-in-love-light-bright-airy
Happy Friday friends! Here are a few things that caught my eye this week while I was busy giving my fingers a workout with some online shopping for some very special projects underway! I hope you are expecting fabulous weather and a bit of time enjoying the great outdoors and perhaps a bit of ...

if you have your digital photos strung out all over the place, this cute thing is definitely for you! http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/04/dell-iriously-easy-way-to-keep-track-digital-photos
If you don't happen to be a blogger or photographer or anything in a similar line of work, it might truly be a bit hard to fully explain the sheer number of images those of us in these professions take in a given week or month. Don't even get me started on how this number multiplies over the ...

a snapshot of the beginning of my little getaway and the rare picture that proves i actually exist! http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/04/our-bi-coastal-getaway-the-road-ahead-paved-with-ocean-views
I mentioned our little family vacay and break from reality last week and today I thought I would share a bit more of our travels with you. It's always interesting when you travel with young kids and the road ahead is never an easy one especially when you are traveling by car.

The TDC Clan is officially on holiday for the remainder of the week! I will be posting intermittently through the week and weekend, but it will certainly be limited as I plan to thoroughly soak up some sunshine with my little family. This was the view from the balcony of our room on the first ...

Happy Earth Day friends! I'm pretty excited because today's plan is basically to. die. for. So good. And there isn't much that celebrates our gorgeous green(-ish) earth more than building your own furniture in an environmentally responsible way. No hidden chemicals or blood diamonds are used ...

bring on the outdoor showcases! can't wait for summer? well this project should help get you in the mood! http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/04/builders-showcase-modern-adirondack-chair-ottoman #builtTDCtuff  
I saw the plans on here and thought it was awesome but I don't like paying for wood where possible so I decided to make it out of old pallets and a few scrap pieces of wood from various other projects. Built From These Plans. Free DIY Furniture Plans // How to Build an Outdoor Modern Adirondack ...

an iconic bench for your iconic home! go forth and build this beauty! http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/04/free-diy-furniture-plans-how-to-build-equilateral-bench
The iconic bench, if ever there was one. Actually I can think of a few iconic benches, but this is certainly one of them! And believe me when I say this will be an easy build. No tricky cuts or fancy things, just cut and drill, then put together like a stacking tree for kiddos.

it must be spring... cuz i am busting out plans for a rocking chair! somehow that says spring to me! you too?  http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/04/free-diy-furniture-plans-how-to-build-a-rocking-chair
Nothing says spring like a rocking chair on the porch. I kind of have a thing with chairs that rock... or bounce. I guess I never grew out of that stage from my years as a baby? Who knows, but there is definitely something so soothing about sitting in a rocking chair, listening to the evening ...

I hope you all had such a Happy Easter! We are celebrating all things new with a fabulous plan for a gorgeous canopy crib! yahoo! http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/04/free-diy-furniture-plans-how-to-build-canopy-crib
I hope you all had such a Happy Easter! We are officially back from our vacation and I can't wait to share some of the details with you all. I hoped it would be relaxing and allow me to recover a bit more from this nagging infection, and I would say it absolutely did help a bit.

the little closet makeover that could! slowly, slowly this space is coming along quite nicely. http://www.thedesignconfidential.com/2015/03/closet-case-dont-sweat-the-small-stuff
It is so much easier said than done when it comes to 'not sweating the small stuff'. At least for me. It seems like the small stuff is precisely what starts the avalanche of mess in my house. No decent place to put that belt, so you set it on your dresser and before you know it, a week's worth ...
