Welcome Home!

On my lunch break, I made a quick stop at Target to pick up two of these end tables (on sale for $30/each at my Target) for the den/man cave:

I fell in love with them when I first spotted them about a month ago but didn't know where to put them. However, when we started converting the office into a den/man cave, a light bulb went off and I knew they'd be perfect for the space! Welcome home little guys :)

I'm currently in the process of converting my guest bedroom from an office into a den A.K.A. "the man cave." I hope to have before and after photos of the change posted by this weekend but in the meantime, here's a little progress shot to show you the mess I'm working with! Enjoy :)

P.S.: Sorry for the crappy cell phone shot, my camera was buried somewhere in that mess haha

Another Rug Bites the Dust

Unfortunately, it looks like I'm going to be buying a new living room rug sooner than I expected. I'm currently living with a white shag one that I got at Home Depot for about $80 a little over four months ago (see below).

Although the rug was initially purchased for temporary use as a replacement to my old one that was ruined when my hardwood floors were installed, it's been great except for the fact that when it's stepped on it, the fluffiness flattens out immediately, it's a dog fur magnet and it sheds like crazy unless I vacuum it daily.

Well Hello There!

Welcome to my desert domicile! Take your shoes off, grab yourself a drink and stay a while as I ramble on about life, love and the pursuit of decorative accessories. While you're here, allow me to introduce myself - my name is Caitlin and I'm a graphic designer by day and self-proclaimed interior decorator by nights and weekends.

I'm a native of Chicago, IL but relocated to the desert of Tucson, AZ two years ago and since then, I've spent most of my time transforming my 25-year-old desert domicile from it's former state as a vacation home (more on that later) to it's current state of a fabulous home (if I may say so myself)!

Join me on my sweat equity journey which promises to include DIY projects, thrifty finds, vignette styling and other miscellaneous ramblings :)
