When Lisa's husband saw this chair 'handed down' by his parents, he had just one word to say about it. Actually, one word repeated 5 times: No, no, no, no, no. But Lisa, having vision and a great eye, was not deterred. She had the… Continue Reading
After five months of hating her avocado green entry, Aly rolled up her sleeves and transformed it for $70 and a weekend's worth of work. After seeing tutorials on the interweb for adding board and batten trim to a wall, she decided to give it a go. With the old and new trim… Continue Reading
For the last few weeks, we've been sharing all the amazingness Emily Henderson is going to bring to the Curbly House. We hooked up with Emily, her assistant Orlando Soria, and Sherwin-Williams to bring a calm, airy, elegant do-over to our master bedroom, dining room, and living room. This week we're back to introduce our final room makeover, and it's our most loved (and most perplexing) space: the sunroom.

I'll admit it: I'm a sucker for anything that combines leather with pops of bright color. It just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy, ya know? So when I spotted this project on Design Milk, I immediately knew I had to try something… Continue Reading
The fabric on this chair had seen better days, no thanks in part to the resident feline who couldn't resist its velvet flocked goodness. Fast forward to now, and it's sporting a brand new look courtesy of some hand-printed, geometric… Continue Reading
Office chairs can be pretty drab. Usually they're built more for comfort than for beauty... but that doesn't mean that you can't add a little personality to yours. All you need is paint, some bright fabric and creative… Continue Reading
