Ikea Gladom Hack

I love myself a good Ikea hack and haven’t really made the move to create my own. I’ve probably been to our local Ikea three times in the last two months to shop for things for the nursery and little bits and pieces for our living room after taking down our Christmas decor. One of the pieces I saw the first time going was this pretty basic and simple GLADOM tray side table for under $15!! What a steal! Back home I went on Pinterest to get some inspiration but only found super simple hacks like spray paining the whole table. I decided to add another fun element to create an even more sophisticated look: marble contact paper!

Here are the steps and some pictures:

Ikea Hack Gladom


1x white GLADOM tray table from Ikea

Rust-Oleum metallic gold spray paint  from your local Home Depot, Lowes, Wal-Mart etc.

Marble contact paper

Scissors or X-acto knife

Smoothing tool/ credit card

Scotch adhesive protective dots


  • Assemble tray table following directions on how to put it together (assembly instructions)
  • Spray paint table and tray wearing gloves and mouth protector on a piece of carton or similar, best outside because of fumes, and let dry
  • measure tray size and copy onto contact paper
  • cut out the circle and carefully transfer contact paper to the outside/ bottom part of the tray, use your smoothing tool or a credit card to get rig of any bubbles.
  • Also when ordering the self-adhesive contact paper the length cover the entire tray (17 1/2 “)
  • this step is optional but I just felt safer adding protective clear dots to the inside of the top part of the poles of the table so the tray would be safe in place
  • put tray back on table and voila – you’re finishes with your one of a kind chic gold and marble side table for under $25!


The accessories on top of the table are also all from Ikea and are linke here: two-tone vase, tropical leaves, boxes with lid set of 3

Let me know if you enjoy this Ikea hack and I can’t wait to finish up Baby girl’s nursery to show you guys where the table found it’s place in her room!

Happy Monday and have a great week!

Memorial Day Weekend Outfit

As I’m trying to get my life together post vaca (it always takes me days to finish laundry, putting things back and emptying the suitcases with the little one jumping around – not easy) I wanted to share one look I wore in Italy that’s just perfect for this upcoming Memorial Day weekend! I’m looking forward to some much needed family time as my husband couldn’t join us for our trip to Europe.

This dress is super comfy and perfect for barbecuing, sipping drinks, and chasing after your kids! It’s labeled as a ‘mini’ dress but being 5’4 ft it’s the perfect length for me. The dress has a round neck, tiers and the cutest frilled elbow-length sleeves. I’m wearing the white and red, but it’s also available in white and blue!

One of my favorite statement necklaces!

Still dreaming about this heavenly gelato!

Dress: Zara

Hope you guys will have an amazing long weekend!

Spring Fashion Favorites

So excited to share two of my favorite outfits for this season with you! I had the pleasure to team up with a local DFW photographer and it was so much fun to shoot these. Unfortunately, we picked the windiest day to take pictures and a lot of them looked all crazy with all my hair in my face. But take a look! I’ll try my best to include links for my outfit details!


My blouse was from Zara but is already sold out, but here are some similar ones from SheIn  and Zara’s, and another one from SheIn.

Mid-rise pink skinny jeans also from Zara.

My heels are from the Target and Altuzarra from a few years back, they are so comfy and I always get compliments on them! Here are some similar ones from Target and Nordstrom.

My 2nd outfit is a little more summery with the cutest navy gingham (yes, again!) and eyelet detailed skort perfect for running after your little 1 year old lol!


Cutest lace-up faux suede sandals from Target.

And here the navy skort from Zara’s but is once again already sold out so here’s something similar I found and it’s on sale!

Hope you enjoyed this post and are enjoying the rest of your weekend!!
