When we closed escrow on our rental house, I wanted to make changes in each room to make it more “ours” without a lot of fuss or money. Our bathroom was redone cheaply in the early 90’s and it is definitely on the top of our list for a major makeover, but we aren’t ready for that kind of expense quite yet, especially with a $10,000 fence somewhere on the horizon.

My bestie, Jeff Hinchee, and I were whisked away to San Francisco for a long weekend to help our pal Merav with her new house. Over about 4 days, we tackled three major projects in her daughter’s nursery that completely transformed it into a perfectly playful modern space. While Merav and Jeff sanded and painted an oak dresser we found on Craigslist, I put a stencil Merav had meant to use years back finally to good use and then we finished the room off with some molding and chalkboard paint as a canvas for Dor to express herself later on. Obviously, as you can tell from the photos, the room still needs a lot of TLC, but I think it’s a great backdrop for Merav and Dor to work with!
