In our old home in Texas we decided to spray paint the bathroom fixtures...so much cheaper and they turned out beautiful! I also sewed up some curtains to add some pizazz and we added wood trim around the mirror to give a framed look.

thanks for the info. never thought you could spray brass...wow!
I was looking for curtains to add to my room and was hoping to find something with a 'linen' feel. Drop cloth is somewhat 'linen' like so I tried my hand at creating my own curtains from drop cloth. And bonus, no sewing was involved!
I was recently hired by some friends of ours to work alongside their builder in the reconstruction of their fire-destroyed home (no one was hurt!). The wife has entrusted me with the
responsibility of being her "voice" when it comes to elements in the design that need a female's input and I think the builder and I make a great team as a result. So, what do you think? Is it important for a builder/contractor to have a woman's perspective in the process of building or remodeling a home? I'd love to hear from you! ~Vanessa

Yes,every day in my master bath....I did not want grout to clean, but tile guy said one
gigantic piece of marble would be too expensive. What his idea of $$$ was and mine......lesson learned. Now my guest bath has the marble, as does the vanity, both of them....
I have always wanted to reuse an old brass chandy for the patio. So when a friend offered me one for FREE, I snatched it. I took it apart and removed all the electrical, put it back
together so it could be used with candle cups and then got to spraying it 'old iron', paint I got on clearance. Then used rope to hang and added the blue candle cups and voila, an Old Iron Chandy for the patio
