So Camille and Carole set about reorganizing the space, focusing on relocating elements and circulation so that their client’s living-dining-cooking spaces flowed better and centered around an unexpected multifunctional feature: “two back-to-back benches, one for the dining table and the other for the living room,” says Camille. By placing the bench so that it serves both the kitchen/dining and living rooms, it also acts as a de facto divider between the two spaces.

DIY Bathroom Mirror Storage Case

I am just slightly excited about this DIY Bathroom Mirror Storage Case I am sharing today.  Ok, just kidding.  I’m giddy!  I shared a little sneak peek on INSTAGRAM last week, and I am so happy to finally reveal the whole thing!  I have imagined it in my head, and the results are even better than I was hoping.  I have always wanted a full length mirror.  It makes checking out the final outfit before heading out the door so much easier than using the reflection of my glass shower door or my blank computer screen 😉  I thought it would be so great to add some function to this new mirror.  May as well kill two birds with one stone! I decided to build a big storage case behind the mirror to hold all my goodies and I am LOVING the results!  Here is how it turned out!
