Adorable Rolling Book Truck | Furniture Fetish

I stumbled upon this adorable piece of furniture on Pinterest today.  It's perfectly retro and I just have to gush about it.  The Flat Shelf Book Truck, available via School Outfitters, is a modern piece of furniture reminiscent of vintage school libraries.

What I love about it (besides the sixteen delightful colors it comes in) is its versatility.  You could use this darling as a bookshelf, nightstand, side table, entertainment center if you have a small flat screen, mobile desk space, vanity, bathroom storage, dry bar, kitchen cart, etc.

I had a little bit of fun styling my four favorite colors of the book truck on Olioboard.
 Left: Old School Library, Right: Vintage Feminine
Left: Working It in Bold, Right: Neutral Chic

The piece normally runs for $444, which is a little pricey for a college/young professional budget... yet not bad considering the use you could get out of it.  But right now it's on sale for just under $296.99!  If I had the extra $300 laying around right now, you can bet I'd be jumping on that deal and buying one of these darlings shelves for my new place.  *sigh*  I'll just hope the sale lasts a couple months.  ;)  In the meantime, you should let me know which color is your favorite!  (...And let me know if you buy one!  Though I'll be mighty jealous!)



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.)
