One Bookcase, Three Ways

Today I’m showing how I would style this Folding Bookcase three ways. This little bookcase is simple and modern so it can work in any room. I tried it in the kitchen, my bedroom, and the kids room and it looked great everywhere. I really like the Room Essentials line because the pieces are beautiful, really versatile and have excellent price points. When I’m styling a space I think about how it’s going to function and then put it together with art and objects that I love. Plants, Art and Lighting make the biggest difference! How do you style your home?

Cookie Cakes DIY

Today I’m super excited to share a DIY by Jodi Levine. I’ve been a huge fan of hers since I discovered her work years ago while she was working at Martha Stewart. This project is inspired by her new book Candy Aisle Crafts which comes out August 26. It’s about crafts you can make from the candy aisle and it’s genius. I preordered it last month (you can too by clicking here!) I’ve seen a sneak peek of the book and it is AMAZING. I’m thrilled to say that we’ll be giving away copies for 2 Oh Happy Day readers! Just click through below for all the contest details and to see the instructions for these brilliant little Cookie Cakes.
