a beautiful mess : video home tour

IMG_1531Hello, friends! Remember on Friday when I said that I had a massive blogging surprise for you all? Well our home is going to be featured on A Beautiful Mess

Honestly guys, this website is the reason why I first began blogging. Before hearing about it nearly three years ago, I was obsessed with the page Apartment Therapy. I loved that they would publish posts a few times a day, and loved being exposed to different homes from across the world. Yet, I longed for more. I wanted more DIYs and people that I could look up to. My wishes came to fruition when one day AT posted a craft tutorial from A Beautiful Mess. I clicked on the link, not knowing what to expect. My life was literally changed after that. I instantly fell in love with the pretty and whimsical nature of ABM, and adored Elsie and Emma. A few months later, I created my first blog, which was wholly inspired by all things beautiful and messy.

I am so incredibly lucky to be on their website for their own ‘At Home With’ series. In honour of this achievement, I’ve created my first video tour of our new and reclaimed home. If you would like past posts on all of the details and DIYs that went into The Little Barn, please click here.

This is one goal in regards to blogging that I can now cross off my bucket list. I hope that my own readers are just as excited as I am. For those of you who are here from A Beautiful Mess, welcome! Please say hello, and stay awhile.

New Years Eve DIY – A Simple Cocktail Display

BeFunky_IMG.jpgIMG_2.jpg IMG_3.jpgIMG_4.jpg IMG_5.jpgIMG_6.jpg IMG_7.jpgIMG_8.jpgThe idea for a beautiful cocktail display actually came from this Restyled Cart that Elsie Larson posted last year (on my birthday!). Since then, I have been adamant on the idea of displaying our collection of alcohol and glassware in a unique and creative way.

We actually had a similar vintage cart to Elsie’s, and so I immediately turned ours into a similar little mini bar. However, after about two months we desperately needed the space back in our kitchen and so my cocktail cart went away. That is, until I had a brainwave to move our bar sky-high. After removing our cupboard doors, I wallpapered the interior of our new cocktail space. Then, I filled it with our best glassware, an apple dish full of sugar, and hung one of my favourite bottle openers. If you are planning on throwing a shindig for New Years, then a trendy cocktail display is definitely a must-have!

Have a safe and happy New Year!! See you in 2014!!! :-)))
