A few months ago we moved into a tree house. Well, not exactly. It's a real house, but it has more windows than a zebra has stripes. We love them (windows, and zebras), but grew tired of accidentally showing off for the neighbors at night. We needed a barrier between our house and the 'hood. Read on to find out what we ended up with ...
The windows are the best thing about our new house. They are old and many need some repair, but they're full of character and they bathe us in natural light all day long. I can't tell you how many people have told us the place feels like a tree house, with all the natural light. We totally agree.
But after we lived here for a few days, we realized there's one problem with tree house living ... there's no privacy. So after a few nights...
Nothing like starting out the new year with a remarkable--and inspirational--kitchen makeover. Sunni and her husband did all the work, including flooring and granite countertops. Word is the $2000 budget also included
Whatever you call them alcoves, niches or cubby holes, they can give rise to some major decor conundrums. What proved to be the perfect way to fill this empty alcove was a faux mantle. It started with some lumber at Home Depot and about a half hour of construction. Some caulk and paint later, this
'Twas a few weeks before Christmas 2011, when I discovered the might glory of the craft store glitter reindeer. I had so much fun hacking these glam-covered beasts into something a little less insane, that I wanted to rescue this elegant species from their harsh coats of coarse, uneven glitz again this year.

In just four days, Yamini turned her sad and uninviting guest room into a prize-winning retreat. Besides the lovely room, the payoff also included recognition by Atlanta Home Improvement Magazine and $1,000. An old Craiglist find, wall lights, an art-piece headboard
Although this kitchen had bright white cabinets, they couldn't make up for the bank of overhead cabinets that closed off the space and made it rather dark. Out went the over head cabinets and in went
Normally, my go-to supply for DIY art projects is paint, but this before and after is making me think twice. I wonder if this would work with washi tape.
It's always fun to see how someone transforms a piece of furniture, but it's especially interesting to see how that same piece is reinvented multiple times throughout its life. Take this little stool, for instance!
I don't know about you, but if I walked into this kitchen, I would assume I was looking at the after. Everything looks good already. There is lots of light, nice cabinets and appliances; but this was only the beginning.
Thanksgiving means turkey, cranberries, guests, and extra seats at the table. As we prepare for the holiday, we decided to purchase a set of folding chairs to create additional seating for our guests. The chairs are super sturdy and comfortable, but they're not the most stylish kids on the block, so we decided to spiff them up using rivets, a staple gun, and some extra fabric we had lying around the house.
