I know, I know... at the thought of pegboards, I initially imagined those lackluster holed boards that are found in so many garages, warehouses, home improvement stores, and basements. But with a coat of paint and a little creativity, these pegboards make for some pretty organization that is ideal for small spaces. Scissors, tape, pens, pencils, and all that other crap that gets jumbled up in your desk drawers can now go vertical on a pegboard---it'll be easy to reach and easy on the eyes. Plus, valuable drawer space will be freed up for notebooks, paper, and more bulky school supplies. To see more, click here.

I like these pegboards-esp the clear one because it would allow the wall color to show through. Lovely blog-i like your ideas!

Nimo--I like the clear one a lot, too... especially if it had a prettily patterned wallpaper behind it! Thanks for stopping by and commenting!!

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
