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
Above is the listing photo of our main bathroom in our little nugget of a downsize. Its pretty good, fresh, bright and perfectly fine. If you like beige that is. If you remember we had almost the whole place painted white when we moved in, with the kitchen and office in black. We had Renuit… Continue reading Stripey Striperson
Here’s a little reminder of how the kitchen looked when we moved in. Note in the first picture there is an upper cabinet beside the window. To the left of it, above the fridge is another, shorter cabinet, slightly useless since it’s so far back. You know the type, you may even own one yourself.… Continue reading Big Beautiful Backsplash
So as much as I love a bold statement and am crazy about how this Kelly green shouts out “LOOK AT ME” to you all, it still wasn’t enough. I know, I know, to some of you it’s already too much but you also know me enough to say, yeah, she needs more. Here’s what… Continue reading Spots Before My Eyes
How many times have you fallen in love with a piece of furniture, or piece of art, or accessory only to realize it just won’t work in your space. But you love it, and it’s a great deal (or even if it’s not) and it would be perfect except for the one small detail… Continue reading Paint, You Are A Friend of Mine
For all you younger gens, the title I chose for this post is a famous Rolling Stones song about depression, or Anger, or Angst or maybe all three. It just seemed like a clever lead in to my next few projects that I want to share with you. Because I love clever. One of… Continue reading I See a Red Door and I Want it Painted Black…
Here we go! First project completed. I have about 5 on the go, including painting “planets” for Village Church’s summer camp. So fun, but daunting – they still need to look excellent, even if they are for kids. (kids come with judging parents, you know.) But more on that later. The first project I speak… Continue reading Bathtub Blues ? Perhaps Not.
PROBLEM. I can’t seem to find enough broken frankenstein globes to resurrect. This causes me to consider either finding a bulk globe website or perhaps figuring out how to make my own. That seems daunting to me either way. One sleepless night, which I seem to be having more of as I age let me… Continue reading Fly Me To The Moon
Today I am going to post for you a simple quick-fix Before and After so that I have still offered a decorating tid-bit before I talk about what happened to me! Here is my coffee table/ottoman in the winter: And my former bedding : A little of this and a little (OK, a LOT… Continue reading One for You, Two for Me!
See what I did there? TIME…CLOCK, well you get it. Here’s the Before wall, Chartreuse green with a series of international times on the clocks: And how I got to the After: First I painted the wall Peppertree by ICI, Dulux or Glidden; it’s all the same company, or you can use Piedmont Grey… Continue reading Hit me baby one more TIME…
