It looks kind of like a holly of some sort, but the leaves are more broad than any holly I've seen! Also, if you know what it is, just what are those berries going to do? Flower? Change color? Stain my clothes?
We have a chevron wood wall in our family room. I have no idea what to do with it. Right now it is stained an orangeish brown color.... very dated and dark. Same thing with the fireplace,
the brick is dark red and just dated looking. What do you think? What would you do? We installed dark hardwood floors throughout the entire home and the walls in here are painted French Gray- a Blue/Gray. Help!! Here is a link to my pinterest board to kind of show my style and what I like: http://pinterest.com/ashopaholicmom/for-the-...
I rent so don't really want to go to all the trouble of removing them but would love to cover them up. Should I paint? (If so, what kind of paint?) Paper? A friend suggested decoupage? What do you think?
My least favorite thing to do is style bookcases (or anything) cause I always feel I need to BUY something. I really do not want to buy but use my own stuff. Any ideas? Also want to paint
this plate rack, either just the back on the inside or maybe all over and the back have a darker shade? I have some tissue paper in there right now? Not sure I want to do that cause If I want to change it down the road that would make it harder. I need it to POP against this wall! Any suggestions would be appreciated!!
I went to an estate sale and saw these. The seller just didn't want them..so i got them off her hands for $3.00. I liked them..but now i'm re-considering.. should I keep them.. if so.. any suggestions on displaying them will be most appreciative.. :-)
I am doing a restyling/makeover of deck with all up-cycled projects. I have a small shutter (half the size of a regular size one). I want to re-purpose it into something useful or as a piece of art for my deck. The theme is retro Americana (Red, White and Blue colors). Any ideas welcome!
A good friend of mine had a water leak and (to no surprise of mine) State Farm has rejected her claim. Im trying to help her.. guide her the best I can and i fear she is being taken
advantage of by Mold & Mildew Specialists. Leak is at the kitchen sink with damage to the subfloor and wall board .. with minimal on the floor joists. Based on an inspection taken from the crawl space below. It is being estimated the leak has not gone on for that long. Only in the last month did it show in the end cabinet.
The area of cabinet removal is only 3'x10' which consists of 3 cabinets and a dishwasher. See photos.
The "specialists" want anywhere from $2500-5000 to remove the cabinets, the damaged subfloor and wall board behind the cabinets. Thereafter.. treat it. From my experiences.. this sounds ... exaggerated to say the least. They are playing on her fears because she has a child with allergies.
While the details are a little vague here... anyone have experience to justify this? My advice? removal .. treatment of this area could be done by an experienced handy man. Even treated with bleach and/or peroxide.
Open ears... thanks in advance for sharing your opinion!
She wanted drapes to stop the Plantation Shutter slats from showing up on her flat screen TV. The TV was located in the keeping room. The drapes connected by clip rings were very
functional to slide back and forth. I usually do not suggest such a heavy window treatment for the eating area. In this case the window treatment drapes and valance worked out very well. I recovered the chair seat bottoms. I added custom placements, custom area rug, pillows and a centerpiece to pull the whole eating area together.
I usually make custom window treatments out of fabric by the yard. The fabric used in the creation of these window treatments came from ready- made drapery panels purchased at the store. I took the panels she had and transformed them to give my client the look she needed for her eating area.
