Beer Bottle Pretty: Who Knew?

unknown


My favorite projects are the ones that take used-up, every-day items and turn them into something new, pretty, and useful.  In this post, I've rounded up some of the most lovely beer bottle makeovers I could find.    Who knew that beer bottles could make such pretty decor?  I'm sure we've all been in that bachelor pad or frat house or guy friend's apartment that has been "decorated" with beer can towers and beer cardboard plastered on the walls as "wallpaper."  We're not taking that man-cavey route.  These beer bottle projects are seriously classy and seriously easy on the eyes.

Well, you know I can get down with a project that involves spray paint. ;)

Pretty white bottles in the window sill.  Love it.

I've been sipping on Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy and Shock Top Raspberry Wheat enough this summer to have a little stash of bottles saved up.  I think I'll be transforming them into pretty little projects like these.

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.

Pencil It In | Working the Pencil Skirt into Your Work Attire, Including 25 Examples with Do's and Don'ts

Starting this week, every Wednesday on The Lovely Side will be devoted to wardrobe, hair, and beauty content.  With summer internships right around the corner and interviews for real world jobs looming as well, I thought now would be a good time to delve into the world of office fashion.  
Sarah, a reader, recently emailed me asking about how to style a pencil skirt for her "somewhat casual, somewhat professional workplace full of fashionable co-workers."  She's been lusting after pencil skirts at several stores, but been hesitant to purchase one for fear of looking bad in it and not knowing what to wear with it.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
