Ready for a project you can do in under two hours that costs, oh…90% less than buying it custom-made? Well, I’ve got a good one for you today: my DIY Roman shade using a cordless mini blind. Yeah…those cheapo plastic things in every rental window you’ve ever had? That mini-blind! Pin this one for that dead week between Christmas and New Year’s when you’ve got nothing better to do than eat stale cookies and tinker around the house. Let me rewind for a second. As I was working on the design of my rental kitchen, I knew immediately upon embarking on my makeover journey that the broken vert ..read more

How We Used Colored Window Film To Birdie’s Windows – Spoiler: It Was A Super Fast, Cheap, And Easy DIY

Last summer, while at the famously neutral mountain house, Birdie and I had, let’s just say a “debate” about my use of color. She was fearful that my taste/style was rather boring. I really understood but I wanted to reassure her that I still got it (hilarious that I was desperate to prove to my 7-year-old that I can do “young” and “fun”). So I went on the internet and showed her a few of the past rooms that she hadn’t seen, including the Ban.do office – full of disco balls and colorful window film and she squealed with delight. It reminded both of us how much fun color can be and while her ..read more

How We Made A Custom Corkboard For Birdie’s Bedroom

Y’all, I’m not a big DIYer, but there is a huge hole in the market for large and fun bulletin boards so we had to tackle this one and I’m soooo proud of us. Of course, it ended up being a little expensive and quite laborious (like most good DIYs are – ask all the DIY content creators out there) but it was fun and not “hard”. Just required some time/money (but I have good ideas on how you could recreate it and be much cheaper). A huge thanks to Gretchen’s mom, a former teacher, for giving me this huge school-grade bulletin board. The vintage bulletin board we had to work with (admittedly har ..read more

Arlyn’s Rental Kitchen Reveal Just Might Have You Wishing You Had Brown—Or Even Cherry— Cabinets (Yes, Really)

Picture this: You’re given a can of paint and told that you have to make the color work in your home no matter what it is. You prop open the lid and see a hue that you frankly just don’t like. But the rule states that sorry, gotta use it and good luck making it look good. Well…that’s kind of how it works when you live somewhere with a specific tone on your kitchen cabinets you don’t love with no power to change them. The twist here is this is my favorite type of challenge. The challenge with hard limitations. It forces me to try new things and come up with solutions I wouldn’t have had to th ..read more

LOOK!! Another fun peek at my apartment before it goes live!! Today I’m showing you one of my favorite corners of my 500 sqft apartment (unstyled, of course, you’ll have to come back for the full reveal for all of the pretty pretty photos…aside from the one above!!). It’s my almost no-effort, renter-friendly DIY dining nook!! I see so many incredible custom, built-in dining nooks on Instagram and in design magazines, but I wanted to create one that’s renter-friendly that we can take with us and repurpose as we go house to house (because we won’t be in this studio apartment forever). This DIY ..read more

Hello, Its me, Mal (EHD social media manager) and welcome back to my 500 sqft studio apartment. AND I’M HAPPY TO REPORT IT’S FINALLY FINISHED! I’ll be walking you through two of the fun DIYs I did for this space first, and then come back next week for the full reveal!! EEK! First, we’re starting with the bed wall that I’ve been in a boxing match with for years now. I was Rocky and this blank wall was Apollo Creed. But we went the distance babyyy and I think in this case I came out on top. Seriously though, I spent so much time scratching my head wondering how I could transform this back wall ..read more

The Ultimate EHD Vintage Resource Guide (Our Best Tips, Hacks, And Shops All In One Place!)

Earlier this week I talked about my vintage bathroom (well, mostly about my vintage toilet), and the love in the comments for all things vintage was resounding. Despite knowing this blog was heavily built on the love of vintage, it was a little reminder of just how much! I hope it’s clear that our love for vintage is as deep as ever too. So with all that said, I thought I’d grab all of our amazing vintage content (tips, tricks, and resources) all in one place. Even I forgot about some of these awesome posts! To give credit where credit is due these posts are almost exclusively written by Emi ..read more

Plagued With Boring Closet Doors? Arlyn Explores (Renter-Friendly) Ideas For Making Hers Less Sad
Style By Emily Henderson » Budget Ideas

Can you believe it?!? I’m not talking about kitchens! But I *am* talking about how to make something so-so in your home better without ripping things out and starting over (particularly helpful for renters like me who have no other options). I write this currently sitting on my bed, looking to my right onto the world’s most boring, mundane wall full of sliding closet doors. I mean, it’s the entire right wall of my bedroom. I can’t place furniture on it, I can’t hang art, I’m stuck in an all-white cheapo hollow sliding door design purgatory here. And in case you can’t picture it, I came prepa ..read more

Inspiration For Our First Farmhouse Halloween Front Porch (And More) + What Exterior Decor/Ideas We Love

Y’all, we’ve entered the Henderson Halloween era (or so I thought…keep reading). This should be no surprise to anyone considering my arguably inappropriate love of Christmas. We’ve never decorated the outside of the house for Halloween mostly because our neighborhood in LA wasn’t a huge trick or trick area and the kids were too little to want to be scared. Well, now they are almost 8 and 10 and I’m getting a lot of pressure/excitement from them (this front door doesn’t really count, fyi, i phoned it in with what I had during lockdown). Message received and mission attempted. I got so excited ..read more

Real Reader Kitchens! 5 Dated Honey Oak Spaces & How A Design Expert Would Make Them Better

In the design world, at least as seen through the lens of the internet and social media, we’re so used to “perfect.” There doesn’t seem to be much room for “realistic” or even “good enough for now.” But the truth is, most of our homes do not look like all the photos hanging out in our saved folders and Pinboards. I’m guessing at least 75% of those of you reading don’t have kitchens plucked straight from the pages of Domino. A good majority of your cook spaces are likely just…normal. Maybe even—gasp—a bit dated. I myself am renting a property with circa 2000s cherry cabinets, and am on a miss ..read more
