A Freespirited Fall: 8 Cozy Boho DIYs

Finally, a new post! The past few months have been spent frantically getting our NEW APARTMENT together, adjusting to San Diego life, and splitting my time between work and school. Life has changed so much lately, and things have been difficult, but as always I’m establishing balance. And yes, you read that correctly: Max and I have a new studio here in San Diego.

The Finished Fjellse

  I mentioned in my For the Love of Fjellse post weeks ago that I would reveal my finished Fjellse bed frame. It’s been a while but I finally got around to photographing it and this is the result: I am extremely pleased with the stain and how the frame helped simplify and give structure to my bed.

I researched IKEA’s cheapest bed frame and the fabulous ways you could hack it, and found there weren’t many examples of stained Fjellses on the web (not even Pinterest!), so I wanted to document my own project. I managed to find mine in perfect condition, with slats, for way less than it was already worth, and my boyfriend Max and … Continue reading For the Love of Fjellse
