So, there’s a bit of a design dilemma in our home. I have a love for all things vintage and a bit retro, and that includes industrial-chic, too. My boyfriend, well, let’s just say we would own the most sleek and modern furnishings available if he had his way. We’re talking Star Trek-style modern. See the problem here? It’s virtually impossible to marry both of our styles, so we usually agree on something contemporary or retro/modern-inspired, shake hands and move on. But I stumbled across this reclaimed wood coffee table and I just couldn’t let it pass me by. (Especially if I can make it myself.) Dan Faires, Design Star season five fan favorite and host of DanMade, created this rustic, industrial project that’s surprisingly easy to make and incredibly charming all the way around. And I’m pretty positive boyfriend won’t object to this living room centerpiece, especially if he knows it was handcrafted by moi.

  7. I got this bag right before I had my second baby who is now 3! Its still in amazing condition, looks like new and I still love it! I didnt think I would ever spend money on a diaper bag, but I will have it long past when the kids are in diapers! I still use it for my 2 kids when we travel, or to pack overnight stuff to grandmas, or on day trips etc. Its big enough to fit a ton of stuff which worked great when I had a newborn and 2 year old, and now it will hold all the newborn stuff and some extras for the older 3 and 5 year old too. Cant say enough about how much I love it and I get comments on it all the time and people often just think its my purse!show off your diaper bags
