Hey guys! Ever since I moved into my new place, I've been itching to do tons of fun DIYs to decorate my apartment! Here's a super simple way to customize your furniture! Just find some fun printed wallpaper (I found this colorful toile print on Etsy!), and add it to the drawers of a desk, dresser, or vanity for a custom look! 
If you don't want to use wallpaper, adding fun new drawer pulls is also a good way to give a cute custom finish to a plain piece of furniture!
Have fun, and comment if you'd like to see more DIY projects!

Cotton Candy

Swirling, twirling, dancing in the sun; Summer is coming to a close, but there's still time for fun. Sticky and sweet, a cloud of spun sugar sticks to her lips as she gets in line for the carousel. Colorful animals dancing in circles, round and round and round again. She carefully chooses her ride, a golden pony with sparkles in its mane; her new best friend.

For as long as I can remember, I've dreamed of having the perfect cotton candy circus fairy princess room to call my own. When I moved into my new place, I decided to take on the task of transforming a plain apartment into a world of whimsy. Because I don't own the space, I had to get creative and find ways of redecorating without doing anything that would get me into trouble! I've been working extremely hard and have finally feel like I'm making progress, though I still have a ways to go! 
I thought I would show you guys a glimpse into the makings of the official Steamfaerie Headquarters, complete with a glittery vintage carousel horse, pink striped walls, and lots of antique treasures! All of this was done on a tight budget, which goes to show that anything is possible! 
I can't wait to show you my wonderland once it's all done!
