Long, Low, & Handsome: 7 Swoon-worthy MCM Dressers

I'm on the hunt for a long, low mid-century modern dresser with handsome wood tones, clean lines, and a sleek silhouette. I believe it would work in lovely contrast with my spray-painted red, wrought iron headboard, antique chairs, and eclectic mix of decor. I believe that so much that I'm actually parting ways with my vintage French provincial dressers. (via: Emily Henderson)

I have my eye on a beauty from a local shop here in town, but I'm waiting (with bated breath) to find out if it's still available – and if it is, could I pay for it and then have it held until I can get help moving it to my apartment. Cross your fingers for me. ;)

Until then, enjoy these seven dressers that have the MCM lines that I'm so smitten with right now.

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.

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.)
