Here’s a modern twist for an old set of drawers or a simple way to dress up something inexpensive.


 I actually “stole” this project idea from a friend of mine who created THE.COOLEST nursery for her son…


 If you want to see a tour of that amazing space, check it out here.

 But first check out the changing table…


 My friend, Shauna, took a simple dresser from Ikea and added thumbtacks in a chevron pattern on the drawers.


 Yes, just simple metal thumbtacks. Isn’t that brilliant? And simple? And cheap?


I love it and hope you do too!

Michelle Fortin and her husband, Jason blog about their DIY home improvement adventures on their site, Making Our Dream. That’s where you’ll also hear more about her life as a part-time SAHM to Kenton (born 5/2011) and baby #2 – due to arrive in October 2012. In addition to being a wife and mom, Michelle also teaches broadcast journalism at Arizona State University, is actively involved in her local MOPS group, dabbles in photography, and is a self-confessed social media addict. Currently, she lives in Scottsdale, Arizona, where she and Jason bought their first home in 2009. It was a foreclosure that’s needed quite a bit of work! If Michelle looks familiar, that may be because you remember her as Michelle Frey – when she anchored the weekend newscasts on NTV a few years ago. She also taught a few classes at UNK. The years she spent in central Nebraska produced some of the best memories and dearest friends a girl could ask for – which is why she’s thrilled to be a part of the Her View From Home team.
