My Bold + Beachy Master Bedroom Makeover

My Bold + Beachy Master Bedroom Makeover

I have been working tirelessly behind the scenes here at the House of TDC to actually complete many of the spaces in my home. Working full time as a DIY + Design Blogger quite frankly leaves your home in full time project mode virtually all of the time if your pipeline is even marginally full. For those of you who happen to do what I do for a living you know this first hand, but for those of you who don't, this is chaotic on the best of days and completely wild and untamed when things are busy.

Oh how I love a good solid buffet, don't you? And by buffet I do not mean the kind you eat at... As a gluten free, dairy free, only thing left is rabbit food subscribing gal, they simply don't do much for me aside from the salad bar. And no, I don't happen to be g&d free by choice, womp womp. My second favorite food is cereal and I just can't have it anymore. Insert sad face here. Anyhow, I digress... I love a good sturdy hunk of wood, because I feel like they are so multipurpose, you know? Use them in a traditional sense for a dining space or throw your media components on up there and enjoy some Bravo reality tv..... Read More
