My husband found this pool on craigslist. The owner wanted to have it dug up from her yard. He rented equipment, dug it up and reinstalled it in our backyard! To see more, visit my blog! http://awalkinthecountryside.blogspot.com/2...
We were brought in to this Vero Beach residence to create an ocean view in a nice, but bare bathroom. The arches & columns are painted on a flat wall. The client wanted cochina stone surrounding the tub - so that was painted on, with small plants breaking through the faux cracks. Also there was a wall niche that we added trompe l'oeil pot & window in (the inset pic). We can do projects like this in our studio, on canvas panels, and ship to clients to be put up simply like wallpaper! It's our 29th anniversary so now I'm outta here!! JRH
Everything you see in this bathroom is NEW, including the toilet! And YES, I did all the work myself, from wiring the new light fixture to, putting up the new mirror, the new crown
molding, the tile floor, the granite bathroom counter top I had cut at a granite place choosing a remnant piece that ended up being cheaper. I also installed the toilet, new faucet, bathtub spout & shower head for the bathroom. My son picked the color on the walls!
I believe YOU can do it! DIY is my motto, and living in you home the way YOU would like to live in it just take a little patience to seek out the best deal and some sweat equity. You end up with something much nicer than what you had before and you are able to enjoy it and NOT wait until you are going to sell YOUR HOME to fix YOUR HOME!
DIY takes a lot of searching for the bargains and a little research and talking to the DIY home improvement store experts, they are very helpful and ready to help you get your project done! So get inspired and start a project~! Ana Maria
