This Past Monday I decided I would paint my guest room blue…an dark blue and I love it!! I just wanted to share it with you all!
Most of the things in this room are either DIY, Sale Items, or thrift store finds!
This kitchen project started 2 years ago when we moved in. The kitchen space is great- it’s open to the dining room the living room, donors open concept and that I love.
What I didn’t like so much- the builder grade cabinetry, linoleum flooring, and the ugly color of the countertops, the ugly yellowed florescent light and the breakfast bar…
Being on a tiny budget we opted for painting the cabinets white & adding hardware to the cabnitry. We bought stainless steel appliances at outlet stores and that helped improve the look of the kitchen.
I still yet have to update the lighting & the yucky countertops… But what I really want to do? Make the breakfast bar area one large level island…
I’m just feeling lost with this kitchen… Any suggestions? I really want to love it, help! (Side note All these images are from two years ago)
Small budget….Big mirror! We made this mirror hoping it would fit perfectly in a bare wall in our small formal dining room- and it did & it’s perfect! It cost us $30 to make- and it’s perfect!
Putting rooms together for me, always takes time. I like to find pieces that aren’t “matchy” but go together.
When my husband and I finally found couches we agreed we liked, we went on searching for a coffee table, and boy was that tough. I really wanted a square coffee table, but couldn’t find one I loved. So I decided, we will make one! And make one we did! And I LOVE it! Now to find that area rug…
I’m a H U G E fan of DIY. And when I told my husband I wanted to update the “formal dining” area I knew our budget wouldn’t go far if we bought the pieces I wanted from the store… So what did we do? We DIY’d the whole thing from the table & the pendant light. ( I also made a plate collage on the wall from clearance home goods plates and made a large 4.5ftx3ft mirror to go on the walls) Got some used dining chairs from a co worker, and shopped at home goods for the decor.
The pictures above show the dining room in its “”in progress” stage. Today it’s a little more finished… I’ll share its current look soon!
