blogwatch: where we were clicking this week


We are absolutely smitten with this vintage Broyhill dresser transformed into a chic changing table, merely using some white paint, at CasaSugar.

MirrorMirror is giving away a super-groovy Living Color LED lamp from Philips. All you’ve gotta do to enter is tell her “how you would colour your world?”

We love succulents! Here are some more, this time in gorgeous modern hanging planters, at Remodelista.

Yum! Make your own seeded quinoa crackers that look amazing from Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef.

Whorange introduces the T-shelf by j1 studio, an amazing, gravity-defying shelving unit that comes flat-packed and is assembled with zip ties instead of screws. WANT.

Over at DIY Life, we read a home renovation horror story. It’s vital information for anyone planning on hiring a contractor for a remodel project, but yikes– our hearts went out to that poor woman!

If you’re anything like us, you are at a loss as to what to do about starting a garden from scratch. Thankfully, Craft is here, with a helpful tutorial on planning your own garden, jam-packed with info on everything from how to build beds and what to plant where.

Read about an emerging cocktail trend, the Pickleback: straight-up pickle brine as a chaser to your shots of bourbon, whiskey and rye. We’re intrigued — but trepidatious, for sure.

Well Tula- I’m GF too- so any of the Real life test kitchens by Megan B are gluten free, whether it’s explicitly stated or not. And you’re welcome!
