Trending: Coated Skinny Jeans

I recently talked about my favorite denim trend for fall - traditional skinny jeans. But as the fall denim guides come out, I'm reminded of a few more favorites, like boyfriend jeans and coated denim. Ken and I recently saw some coated skinnies at Target, so it looks like the trend will be widely available this year and at various price points. Image via Amazon Fashion

DIY Desk Makeover

by Stephanie Gerber of Henry Happened



Remember my two carloads of stuff from Goodwill? Well this $50 desk was one of them. I'm not sure if it's true campaign style (the pulls are different) but I still love it. The picture makes it look a bit washed out - the color is richer than this shows. But I did go for a darker shade of green than my inspiration piece:


I went with Behr Ultra in Dill Pickle. 


Here is the before shot:


I hand sanded and did two coats of paint. The paint included primer but I really should have either primed it or given it a third coat. I was worried after the first coat - it was very lime-y. But the color got much darker as it dried.


And I cleaned the brass pieces with Brasso.

 

I am clueless at styling (I'll move things around a dozen more times) but I like it. Now I just need to move the picture down (something else used to be there) and find a chair!

What do you think?
