HGTV’s Taniya Nayak rocks!

Taniya Nayak of HGTV’s Designed to Sell show – recognize her? She’s the one that goes in after the critique of the property and helps the homeowners spruce up the place and stage it. I love her energy and enthusiasm. She’s very edgy and innovative. And, she reminds me of my friend Abby! Definitely a plus. 


I’ve been thinking about making a headboard out of … well … not sure. Which is why I’ve been watching HGTV. Well not really. I just love watching HGTV. I could probably watch it all day. I have watched it all day. I really need to get a job don’t I?

So anyhoo … Ikea has fabric now. Who knew? So headboard: plywood, batting and fabric=inexpensive headboard. Check out Ikea’s fabric. Very different and yet easy and design savvy.

Most of it is $5.99 to $9.99 and is 59-inches wide. Which means turned sideways it will cover just about any height you need, and you can use the width for full/queen or king size bed. That’s my plan—photos coming I promise.






I’ll just get right on that after the other 10k things on my list this week. Which include putting the new picture I bought at the designer sale over the weekend above the fireplace. The fram has a gorgeous, gold, sparkly frame that brings out the gold and bronze glaze I painted on the fireplace. Be still my beating heart. 

Someone just reminded me that I haven’t been to Amalee on Mississippi Blvd. in too long! Love their clothes – think relaxed, comfortable and very hip.

Oh, it was PDX Shopgirl on Twitter. Check out the PDX Shopgirl blog too. She just put up a list of the hottest, hot stuff in PDX!

Thanks Dani! And shop on.
