Hey Hometalkers! I'd like to share my latest blog entry with y'all. I decorated my home office with lots of personal touches while trying to keep it classic and pretty. I'm very happy
with the way this room turned out. It's an awesome place to sit, relax, craft, read, design, write, or just hang out. I hope you enjoy the reveal! Lots more info and photos on my blog if you're interested. :) http://www.unskinnyboppy.blogspot.com/2012/0...
If you are in need of new flooring but don't have much money to spend (or even if you do) then this fits the bill! I created this floor out of brown paper, Elmers glue, stain and
polyurethane. It was easy to do (albeit time consuming) and is very durable. This room is 10 X 12 and cost about $80, but future rooms will cost about $30 since I have plenty of leftover supplies.

I think this would be great on the floor & counter top in different shades or colors in the
kitchen. It is beautiful. Thank you for sharing. And on the walls in the office~leather looking. We have a very small office so it would be easier to do...I don't know that my husband has the patience to do it but I could!
I got this little shelf/table at Roundtop Antiques Show Lat year for $20. I love the look of stacked white towels in a bathroom and I didn't want all of them hidden in the linen closet. I
decided to use this shelf next to the shower to store things I wanted within arms reach. You can open the shower door and literally grab a towel or a fresh bar of soap without stepping foot on the floor. Also within reach are q-tips, a basket of wash cloths and a basket of hand towels. It has been very handy, and by sticking to the all white formula, pretty as well. To visit my blog and see more stuff like this click here: http://farmhouseporch.blogspot.com
I needed some extra storage space for my favorite hardback books. After seeing something similar online, I came up with the idea to utilize a small nook space in my laundry room. I
brought home a few 2x6 boards and build some simple boxes, which I then screwed into wall studs with 4" screws. I kind of like to overkill it when it comes to attaching things to the wall! It's totally fun and the perfect use of an odd space. This could definitely work for display shelves too! More building details are on my blog http://www.killerbdesigns.com/10-book-tower/
With a family of 7 to feed, my canned food stash was going a bit crazy. I designed and built wood organizers that rotate the oldest dates out first. I also built 2 different sizes. This
one will hold up to 12 cans... Woohoo! The others will hold up to 7 and are stackable. This is the best thing to happen to my pantry in a long time! Plus... They cost under $5 a piece to build!
