The BEFORE. This bedroom is blah. The ceiling light fixture, the feature – or should I say non existent feature wall, the tired side tables and lights. Blase’ at best. I really, really love the wallpapers that look a bit like colour is bleeding on the wall, sometimes with the colour dark and intense washing… Continue reading Ikea Hack Extraordinaire
HAPPY NEW YEAR!! And I hope you had a Blessed Christmas too. After traveling for a month through some of Australia, New Zealand and Vanuatu I wondered what would you, the readers, want to see? I did not want to give you the typical holiday pics, and I did no DIY to speak of except… Continue reading No DIY, but still Interesting??
Since I am just weeks away from the new frontier of townhouse living, I thought I’d wander down memory lane and look at how I got where I am going. You get to see my sometimes odd decision making from the beginning, and along with me can say “what were you thinking!??” I promise not… Continue reading Evolution of a Master Bedroom
I think it’s back! My mojo, I mean. When we purchased the house, this particular room had been converted from the garage and was set up as a games/TV room.

I believe planning this armoire took more thinking than my wedding! Here it is, not perfect, but certainly better than what I had posted before. So I bet you’re asking yourself, “what about the scratch map? The reason for the armoire in the first place?” Well, I listened to you, AND tried to stay true… Continue reading Done Like (Burnt) Dinner
I made the promise last post that the next project I did would be the headboard I kept putting off doing. Part of my reasoning for the delay was I wanted to do it with a smallish budget but without compromising style or functionality. I wanted to make a headboard that anyone could make, and… Continue reading Headboard Hesitation, Be Gone!
I’ve been contemplating making someone a headboard for some time. Because it’s not for me, I second guess myself a lot. A LOT. But we all do that when we do just about anything for someone else. (P.S., Spidey’s web is made from a sparkly fishnet stocking!) I used to paint murals in show homes,… Continue reading Headboard Hesitation
