My client wanted an office space that could double as a guest room. We created a space that is not only fun but inspires creativity, since there is a craft closet too..
She likes horses, so that was the inspiration to make it a little rustic with the sisal rug and the wicker shades. But, we also wanted a little bit of an elegant feel. I call it a Robert Redford's rustic, yet feminine and elegant style
Hi Everyone: It's been 5 years since I bought my condo so, I can't quite leave. The elephant, I mean, the gentleman who lives above does nothing but disturb my slumber. I've tried
EVERYTHING to get sleep and nothing works.
SO, I am yearning to build a soundproof sleep pod over/around my bed. Has anyone done it? Do you have any suggestions for wood, soundproof supplies? Anything?I'm a bit stumped but, it will happen!:)Thanks much.
Simple.... I purchased a reed fence from the K-Mart garden department...rolled it out flat, then evenly rolled up each of the sides so that the total width would fit my queen size bed.
Then, tied the "rolls" on either side in the back where it wouldn't be seen to keep it from unintentionally unrolling, propped it up against the wall behind the bed, secured to the wall with a few VERY SMALL screw nails here and there and VOILA! INSTANT "BEACHY" headboard!
So the wife leaves for a 30 day African missions trip and I decide to tackle my first bedroom renovation project. Mind you I have done little projects here and there, but nothing of this
magnitude. I was truly only going to repaint the room, but was quickly overcome by the desire to spruce it up a bit. As you can see by the before pictures it was “okay” compared to other rooms (whichever those might be) but still dark, aged and in need of help. I wanted something cozy, cottagey, resort like. I was stepping out in faith because my wife knew nothing about the project and I would not have her input. Shhhhh, it’s a secret. This would really test how much I think I know her.
Master bedroom and bath remodel using thrift store finds and re-purposed items. The first daunting task was to repaint all the wood trim to white and prime red walls. Then the walls were painted a light yellow to give the room some air. The windows were framed out entirely from recycled wood and the shutters are thrift store louver closet doors that were cut and reassembled to size. Same was done for the door leading to pool area. All frames used in the room for decor were thrift store finds that were repainted. The crates are from Michaels and were stained and decorated by, you guessed it thrift store finds. Lifted vanity off ground and gave legs. Used recycled wood and bead board wall paper to create raised door panels from the flat Formica doors. Removed Formica counter top and used recycled wood from a closed local restaurant. Closed out medicine cabinet and used recycled molding. Both sinks were recycled from someones back yard. Gave texture to upper portion of walls (Spanish lace and applied bead board wall paper to bottom half. The large eight foot long mirror was left in place and divided by the same recycled wood shelf and framed out to look like two separate mirrors. I removed the soffit fluorescent lights and rewired for two separate fixtures. The ladder was made from recycled ballet bars and wood from a closed dance studio.
Sometimes all it takes is a little paint to entirely change the mood and feel of a room. What do you do when you hear that voice inside your head that says "go ahead and paint that wood...you know you want to!"
