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.
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
Here you go! Two! Count them, two quick and simple transformations for you patient followers. I do still have followers…right? Ok, excuse the before pic of my door, I did not have the foresight to take a before picture of my whole door like a professional blogger would (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking… Continue reading Quick Change Artist
Here’s a pic of the unlovely little deck around the hot tub. I never wanted a hot tub. I even asked the seller to remove it to bring the price of the house down (she was going on and on about it and it’s virtues – I had to put a stop to it). But… Continue reading All Hands On Deck!
Once there was a very Sad Little Experiment. Since the Experiment failed, it was hidden away in the darkest corner of the house, left to fend for itself. There, it came in contact with many a cruel twist of fate. Glasses with drips, plates with sloppy eaters, bumps, scrapes, dust, grime and not a bit… Continue reading The Day Whimsey Came to the Kingdom
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. (The door with the black curtain in the picture below is the door out to the hot tub) but in order to appease poor daughter… Continue reading Pluses and Minuses
Here is my husband’s grandmothers little dresser. All fancy schmancy like. Lots of dust, grime and chippy bits that are NOT in a good shabby chic way. So how to update it, without just painting it top to bottom? Lika this! (and no, that is not a pot plant you see beside it so never… Continue reading Diamond Girl
When I was much younger, my parents decided my older brother and I should take music lessons. My brother got a brand new shiny black and white electric bass guitar. I got my grandpa’s accordion…. true story. And maybe it wouldn’t have been so bad if I had learned some romantic Parisienne melodies or even… Continue reading Let’s Polka!
I made this headboard a few years ago. The fabric was an attempt to just get the darn thing done, and I never liked it. I covered over it a few times with this and that, but none of them seemed quite right either. I thought I might tackle it again, and on a trip… Continue reading The Writing’s on the Wall
If you’ve ever done cross stitch in any form, you’ll understand how fun it can be, how relaxing and mind numbingly TEDIOUS! I saw these : I thought to myself, how do I do these in giant form in less time?? Ceiling grid tiles came to mind, but they are plastic and… Continue reading Cross Stitch on Steroids
