It's no secret that gold is all the rage these days, which is why I'm particularly obsessed with this gilded DIY bookshelf. Originally purchased at Ikea, we've given this simple etagere an immediate upgrade with a little gilded love, and some marble contact paper. The best part? The entire thing can be done for $100 total. Shelves...

Ikea Hack: Modern Desk

I've been on the hunt for a new desk for some time now, and when our in-house DIYer suggested we make one ourselves I swear I could have kissed her square on the lips! Enter: the DIY hairpin desk. I'm convinced that if we hadn't confessed it's an Ikea hack already, nobody would ever know. It's quick, it's easy, and it's beyond chic.

Black + White Home

Ikea Hack: Gilded Campaign Nightstand

With a little bit of gold hardware, white lacquer paint and a splash of gold leaf...Voila. Nightstand Perfection. And all for about $150. Boom.

FAVORITE HOME TOUR | There is just something about Everygirl, Alaina's Home...that just makes me happy. Could be the girly touches, could be the attention to personality and pure style. Could be the fact that she painted her walls pink.  Whatever it is, I'm hooked. Photo by Stoffer Photography.

DIY Ikea Side Table Hack

Round these parts, IKEA hacks are kind of like the soon-to-be born royal baby. We can't stop talking about them, obsessing over them, finding joy in what they are going to look like when all is said and done. Okay, terrible reference. I know, it's Monday. But seriously? We are a little nutty over all of the fun that you can have with a good IKEA find. Namely? This $30 Ikea side table that we gussied up with a bit of marble and a splash of gold.

DIY Ikea Bar Cart Hack

As an interior designer myself I, admittedly, have a bit of a love hate relationship with Ikea. I can't stand the idea of cheaply made furniture, but I love the concept of style being readily available on a budget. My biggest Ikea-related pet peeve, however? Walking into a friends home only to find a handful of items I too have on display in my own. Which is exactly why this next DIY has me extra giddy. Because though it's definitely more labour intensive than projects of SMP's past, it results...

Raspberry Mint Brownies from Alexis Lopez

First of all, I'm kind of FREAKING OUT right now that I just wrote the title "from Alexis Lopez." Why you wonder? Well, because Alexis Lopez is my 16 year old niece.

Plus she's cool and sweet and considers herself a chocolate  connoisseur so if Lex says these...
