DIY Metal Base Night Stand

I have been on the hunt for night stands for my master bedroom for a while now. I was originally looking at a few night stands that had a combination of wood and metal but I found most of them seemed far to small to go with our new king size bed. After months of […]

Mid-Century Desk Makeover

Now that all the construction projects are complete down in the “Man Cave” I am free to start on the decor. My first project is this great mid-century desk I found at the thrift store for only 10€ (about $14.) When it came home with me it was painted blue, normally this would have gotten […]

Another Chair Makeover

I hope your not tired of seeing my chair makeovers yet. I really have a thing for chairs. Maybe its because I can lift them by myself, or that the task of updating them is not as daunting as a sofa, or maybe I just have a problem. I’m not sure, but I love to […]

Man Cave – Chair Makeover

Do you remember these guys? I got the whole set for 50€ at my local thrift store. I bought the chairs and just as I was walking out the door I saw this great yellow table. The store had it set up as a children’s table with little chairs but I knew I could totally […]

Most of the designs I was looking at were from the Hollywood Regency era designed over 80 years ago. Hollywood […]

Room #3- The Living Room

After I eat and sleep I must watch TV and of course blog. So I must move on to the living room. The living room started with a coat of yellow paint that is about two shades lighter than the kitchen since this room a little darker and needed a little brightening up. The layout […]

Room #2 – The Master Bedroom

Once the kitchen was finished and we could finally eat, I figured it best we find somewhere to sleep. After almost two month sleeping in hotels and on air matresses I was more than ready to have my own bed back. The master bedroom was a little easier project than the kitchen since I had […]
