side table goodies


My little girly side table- it is love.

It's so simple, but my side table + decor is one of my favorite areas of my entire apartment. I got the table for $15 and painted it peach, threw on a $1.99 lace doilie, some books, a box of caramels and candle- and BAM! Perfection.

Speaking of my apartment, it isssssss *deep breath* 88% complete. SO CLOSE. Just tying up the loose ends!! I need to craft some curtains (or something that resembles a curtain), buy one last piece of furniture, hang some photos… and that's about it! AW YEAAAAH! I'm so happy with the turnout, can't wait to show you guys everything! I will try to do a tour within the next few months ^_^

    1. I'm going for that "perfectly-imperfect" look with all my furniture, so I just cleaned it up real nice, slapped some primer on it and then hand painted it with flat paint! EASY! ^_^

  14. So gorgeous and chic! I absolutey love interior design (I'm also really meticulous about having things look perfect) and am so inspired by all the home decor you've shown us and what we've seen of your apartment thus far through FrillyAndFancy and WULAS. Kudos for all the days and effort you've devoted to creating and designing the ideal home environment. I've been so inspired by your decor mix and layout to decorate my room! I love your videos Kalel, so excited for the apartment tour! <3

  15. Hi!! I love your style. I was wondering, where did you get that beautiful inexpensive doilie?

    ReplyDelete
  16. It's amazing what a nice touch a little lace can add. O: I love all of these sneak peeks and it makes me want to decorate my room more, but I'll probably wait until I move off campus and have something at least semi-permanent to work with. Anyway, keep 'em coming! ^.^

  17. I love how you decorate things, I seriously wish you could do my own place...And my sense of style for that matter. Lol. Anyway, tell Anthony Pip and Buki I say hi. (P.s Seriously can't wait until I get to see that video when it comes out!)

  22. Oh my goshhhh. So much love for the Sweet Shop collection. Almost killed a bitch when I went into Bath and Body Works last weekend and saw the summer stuff has already taken its place. I pretty much bought out the rest of the Cinnamon Sugared Doughnut mason jar candles online after that.

  25. The anticipation of seeing it all come together is driving me crazy! But seriously, your apartment is beautiful so far :) You're such an inspiration (you've probably have heard that a million times, it's true!) and you were, without a single doubt, the reason I started my own Youtube channel (nowhere as good as yours is, but i'm still learning the ways). I have been following your channel and blog religiously, gaining inspiration for my own room decor.
    I recently had an electrical fire, losing all of my things and my beautiful SF flat. It was absolutely devastating, as myself and my boyfriend who I live with were forced to live on our friend's couch for 3 months while "repairs" were being made (I.E. while our twisted landlords tried to find a way to evict us so they could raise our controlled rent ). Anyway, what I am getting to is that during that time, I was heartbroken and crushed about losing my home and all of my things. One thing that kept me going, as weird as it sounds, were your videos and blog. It gave me hope that I could rebuild my new, empty home into something new (kind of like yours when you moved into your new studio) and turn it into a dreamy place that I love and I'll be happy to come home to.
    I know this is long, but I just wanted to share with you how much your videos mean to some of us. It's more than just a video or a blog post you make sometimes, it can sometimes be inspiration and motivation to not give up when things go badly.

  28. I love this table! It's so adorable*^.^* I love the pastel colours of the books, they look really good with the table!
    I can't believe your apartmentapartment is almost finished! I'm so excited to see the tour! Even though it's taken a while (which I completely understand, I mean, who doesn't want things just the way they want them?!;)) it's definitely worth the wait!

  29. OMG Kalel your home is so beautiful, I LOVE IT! One day i want to have a room exactly like yours unfortunately right now i can't because my mum can't afford because we rent so i cannot paint or hang up wall art and it is my dream to design my room in that way. But i am so excited because at the end of the year my mum is buying a house and i get to design it in the way that i want to and also i am going to Japan!!!!! Yay!!!!!! Thanks to your beautiful room i want to design mine like yours! Thankyou for inspiring me and being my number one role model! xx <3

  30. Hey Kalel i just wanted to say that lately I've been going to some pretty hard moments and whenever I feel down or cry a lot I watch WULAS videos and it makes me feel so much better because I distract myself and laugh a lot with you and Anthony. Also you have a really good taste on your home decor. Wish you and Anthony the best. Thank you for making videos that cheer people up :)

    Cannot wait for your apartment tour, although I completely understand the perfectionist side of things, I think the fact you've spent this long planning and organising everything is making me even more excited to see it :)
