Sibylle's dining room wasn't used as a dining room. (More of a 'deposit' room.) That's all changed, and BIG time. Before, it looked like a walk in closet. A fresh coat of white paint, a mirror, a DIY chandelier, and some Ikea items later, it's
I have a starburst mirror hanging in my bedroom above the bed, and my husband is always making some comment on how he is sure he will die from being impaled by one of the "rays" in the middle of the night.

So, have a peek at the spaces where our articles are researched and written, photos shot and edited, mistakes made, things learned, and the DIY community built.
