Decorating for Disaaster

With the Oklahoma Earthquake shaking up the midwest this past weekend, I thought of various "Earthquake Preparedness Techniques" to pass along. And since the Oklahoma Earthquake is still shaking up things, even in the past hour, here are some helpful hints.

Simple Built In Bookcases

I have been wanting some stunning  economical bookcases in several of my rooms.

Easy Glam Pin

I fell in love with this lovely pin from Newport News, and decided to come up with a similar look within my budget.

White Office Chair Magic

The simple lines of this Zuo Lider No Arm White Office Chair with chrome accents defines the design of a modern yet comfortable office. This chair is very similar and would work perfectly in my new office.

But alas, I have put that on my wish list, but until I can get it, I decided to "make do".
