Nice enough wall, but starting to feel insipid to me. And this one, well, sad and pale. Time to give them a punch in the gut. But how do you do that? you ask. Taking a inspirational cue from this blogger’s post Making Progress (about his fabulous dining room), I saw black as my answer. To make… Continue reading Does This Wall Make Me Look Fat?
My token Christmas post is done. The thing is, I don’t think I’ll be showing you anything you haven’t already seen out there already. However, it’s my take on it, in my eclectic tightwad way.

Is this not one of the coolest art installations ever?? I saw this in a coffee shop months ago and just had to take a picture. I stored the idea in my little brain and thought about it now and then and how I could do the same thing on a smaller scale in my… Continue reading Did Somebody say CAKE??

One day, perusing through Pinterest as I tend to do far, far too often, I came across a blogger who made her rental unit more… Continue reading Et de Deux – Light Fixture Change-Up
Well, if it isn’t, it should be. Look up, waaay up, and you’ll see my industrial addition. It started out like this: Very traditional. Nice, but not my style. Came with the house. Still confused about that since the previous owners didn’t really have any other finishes in the traditional style. Interesting. Hemmed and… Continue reading Mid Century-Eclectic-Industrial.
