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 .

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.
