How to Repurpose Furniture & Decor in a New Home

Tips to Inspire You to Repurpose Existing Furniture & Decor in a New Home. Interior design tips for new home or new apartment

I have been waiting to write this post for SO LONG, but basically I held off until we had more rooms finished in our cabin to use as examples! When I moved from my old loft into the bungalow, I didn’t have a ton of furniture. Plus, it was all way too big for the new house. So I didn’t learn a ton about how to repurpose my furniture and decor in a new home. But now that we’ve moved to a larger home with pieces we love, I’ve learned sooo much! Not only has this experience shifting my thinking in how I select future furniture and decor, but I’ve also realized how important flexibility is. Here’s a bit more about my experience + some tips to help you!

Our Quick & Easy No-Bake Cheesecake Recipe

Quick and easy no-bake cheesecake recipe with seasonal summer fruit, made with the easiest cheesecake crust from pretzels! The perfect summer dessert for a bbq or picnic in cute mini mason jars

With temperatures heating up and small, safe summer gatherings on the rise, I thought this month’s recipe needed to be something easy and cool: meet the no-bake cheesecake! This recipe is the perfect throw-together dessert, ideal for impromptu gatherings or for the days when you do not want to turn on the oven. Since smaller gatherings seem to be the safest bet for getting together these days, these individual-sized treats not only take 20 minutes at most to make, they save you from having a half-eaten cheesecake lying around (not that there’s anything wrong with that…).

My Full Review of Chasing Paper Peel and Stick Flooring Tiles

All about Chasing Paper Peel and Stick Floor Tiles, a full review of temporary flooring, how to install, how to care for it, the pros and cons + more!
Disclosure: For this post I received gifted product from Chasing Paper in exchange for review. All opinions are my own and always will be! Thanks for supporting content that keeps Jojotastic going.

When we decided to update our guest bathroom recently, I didn’t originally plan to remove the existing floor tile. But at some point in the design process, I realized how much I hated the tile and how badly it needed to go. So on a whim, I started removing tiles one night… just to see how easily they could be removed. And then I just kept doing. At that point, I realized I didn’t exactly have a plan as to what I wanted to do for flooring — especially since we were on a pretty tight budget for this project. Late one night, I ordered some random peel and stick flooring I found from a popular retailer. It arrived a few days later and was *terrible*. With little over a week until I had to finish the renovation, I reached out to Chasing Paper to see if they would be interested in teaming up on this project. They came through at the last possible minute and sent us the floor tiles you see in the reveal — and I am OBSESSED. I’ve gotten so many questions about Chasing Paper’s new peel and stick floor tiles. So today, I am sharing my full review, including installation notes.

Now that I’m back to blogging full time, I am beyond excited to share a major makeover reveal: our cabin’s guest bathroom! We originally started this project in order to celebrate the launch of the new paint collection from Better Homes & Gardens exclusively at Walmart… and then it spiraled into a much larger overhaul of the entire space. Which I am totallyyyyy fine with because, if you’ve followed me on Instagram for a while, you know about the smell. That bathroom has always been gross, ever since we moved in. But now, it feels like a chic space for our guests! Let’s dig into the before photos, my design plan, the new paint from Walmart, and the reveal.

Monthly Life Update, July 2021

My new vintage trailer, 1970s road ranger camper. A quick life update about my health, our cabin, our pets, my business, and more.

I’m officially back! The last time I posted, I had shared a bit about needing a break in order to get my ducks in a row and reprioritize some stuff behind-the-scenes. I did actually take some time for that, but also got totally inundated with not one, but TWO renovation projects in the cabin. Such is the life of a blogger who documents renovations, HA. So here’s a bit of a recap about what I learned, changes I want to make, and more.
