These days our culture seems to be inundated with all kinds of non-surgical cosmetic procedures. Thanks to the Kardashians and other celebrities, these kinds of procedures have become, somewhat, dare I say- normal?
Yet, a part of me, like so many other women, I am sure, hesitate to share with the world that they’ve ever had anything cosmetically done to themselves to enhance their physical appearance.

Injections are not there yet, but I am sure one day they will be.

Today is the day I finally share my dining room reveal! Now, I have given you peeks inside my house here and there on Instagram (Follow the hashtag #LauraLilyHome for behind the scenes.) My first room reveal was the patio back in May and I had to wait a bit to finish a few other projects like this DIY hutch in the dining room I transformed with some paint and wallpaper.
