Craigslist Catch: bathroom storage

One of the most common and most overlooked items on Craigslist is the china cabinet. I get it—they're a little old-fashioned, often oversized, and they tend to become catchalls for clutter and dust. BUT, in the right room for the right purpose: gold.

I was searching Craigslist with that idea in mind when this beauty caught my eye. It's smaller in size than most, and doesn't have the dated, ornate floral carvings you see on a lot of old china cabinets:

 

Perfect, and kind of a steal. And, no work needed! This piece is just begging to be put to use as stylish bathroom storage, like this: 

 
 

Paired with clean chrome fixtures and a cool vintage rug, the hutch looks right at home in this traditional-with-a-twist bathroom design:

Our next house NEEDS a bigger bathroom so I can make this happen. Can you be jealous of your own design ideas? Because I am.

look for less: office space

It may be because I have my own mini home office redesign on the brain, but it seems that gorgeous, chic work spaces are everywhere I look lately (case in point: this article, this article, and this pinterest board). I pinned some really great office spaces on my own interiors board this week, so I decided to pick a few of my favorites to recreate for you! Below I've shown you how to get a room that looks pretttttttty close to the photo. And, because you know I'm always looking for a deal, I've also put together a room with a similar look, but for a lot less.
