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!

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!

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.

A couple of years ago, we were walking at a local beach in Seattle when Noodle accosted a doodle puppy. The owner and I got to chatting, while the two dogs romped (aka Noodle jumped Marty for at least 20 minutes). After parting ways, she found me on Instagram and we’ve been in touch ever since. Around that time, the pup’s owner, LiLi Tan, launched Kailu, a brand combining old-world textile techniques with modern design to make your sleeping experience even better. LiLi sent me one of the Heritage Silk duvets for me to try out and let me just say… it’s truly luxurious. We’ve used our raw silk duvet for over a year now and I’m pleased to finally share my full Kailu review with you today!
