Wood Front Doors


It's that time of year again where I stand at the end of my driveway staring at our home daydreaming about how to make it Pinterest-worthy.

Tom & I daydream about the exterior of our home a lot actually. Mostly because it'll need a LOT of TLC and we'll have to put a ton of work into it. But our interior is priority so the exterior will remain.. erm, humble, for now.

As the daydreaming continues, I wanted to share a piece of my inspiration:
Wood front doors.

Goodbye glossy painted finish! Large character-filled front doors are in. These doors will add something to unique to your curb appeal - they're stop-in-your-tracks and stare in awe kind of doors, which will give your home a really striking change from the rest of the block!

Here are some of my favourites to get you as inspired & ansty as I am.

Nightstands Under $250


Have you noticed the huge industry gap that is nightstands?

Ask me where to find a nightstand and you'll witness me either major face palming, crying in frustration, or cursing at the home decor industry. I don't know the reason for this industry gap and have no explanation! All I know is - it's tough. ESPECIALLY when on a budget.

Urban Barn is my #1 recommendation for some beautiful options if you want high-quality that also includes a pretty high price tag. You can pay around $1,200-$1,600 for a pair of good quality nightstands. It's worth it; but not in the budget for moi! 

As our master bedroom renovation progresses (don't know what I'm talking about? Click here!), I've begun some lengthy story boards for what I envision for our bedroom and so let the online shopping commence! Online catalogs are the only places I've come across some affordable and on-trend nightstands at a reasonable price point, but buyer beware - I only online shop for items that have extensive positive reviews and, better yet, when those reviews include other buyers photos.
