Steals & Deals: The Best of the West Elm Friends & Family Sale

I mentioned yesterday that West Elm is having their BIGGEST SALE OF THE YEAR right now. But hurry ! It ends this weekend! EVERYTHING in stock is 20% off with the code FFSALE at checkout. You even save on already marked down items. This a great chance to get huge savings on furniture and accessories! If you have been eyeing something, now is the time to buy. However, to help you get the most bang for your buck I snooped out the biggest deals! I went through all the sale items and found the deepest discounts.

Our Master Bedroom Reveal + Sources

*This post contains affiliate links. Long before I started this blog and before we started taking on DIY projects, Daren and I started slowly pulling our master bedroom together. It has been one of the most “done” rooms in our house for a long time, yet it has received little to no love on our blog or social media channels.

Project Big Girl Room – Step 1: Pinterest Research

I’ve been talking about it for a while, but we are finally ready to get started on E’s big girl room! She’ll be moving down the hall to a bigger room as soon as we can get our act together. Despite her extreme excitement when we first showed her the already purchased bed, she is still a little tentative about the adjustment. I’m hoping a room makeover, will amp up her excitement once more. I know I’m excited about it! Even if it means forfeiting my clean laundry drop off zone. Her new room is right across the hall, and while I’m pretty good at loading, I’m not so great at the whole putting clothes away part…  Anyway, since this is the first room makeover… Read More
