We just had to replace our glass screen door with a new sheet of plexi. Our landscaper accidentally hit it with a rock, while using the weedeater & it shattered the entire thing. Luckily my husband opened the door after it shattered, but the crash & aftermath has been quite the mess. We're still finding glass in the tracks & it's in our flower beds. But the landscaper wouldn't replace the whole door- just the glass. He was hit pretty hard by Hurricane Harvey & is just now moving back into his home. I unfortunately had to touch up the door paint, where shards of glass chipped into it.
I have a firm belief that you can transform any room with some paint. It is the most cost-effective way to give a room a face-lift: whether you paint a focal wall, all walls, paint above the dado or below, create an imaginary dado with paint or add a pattern or stencil, paint has the incredible ability to completely change the look and dynamic of a space.Here is how to completely change the way a room looks with just a little paint!
Yes, I painted my ceramic tile floor and I am so in love with it, I can't stand it.A couple weeks ago, I posted my reveal of my 1990's bathroom and I promised a follow up with how to stencil that almond ceramic tile floor. Here is my bathroom reveal in case you missed it: http://www.hometalk.com/29927365/completed-my-1990-s-bathroom-revealWhen I told my darling hubster some of my ideas of what I wanted to do with this baby, he was like, "Whaaaatttt????"

The last 2 times we've been to the beach near my house, we've found a TON of washed up sand dollars. All different sizes. Some as small as a nickel and some much larger. However, the little ones are so delicate that lots of them broke before we got them home. I hated the thought of throwing them all away so I searched the internet for ideas on what to do with broken shells and saw some cute ideas that inspired me. Here is what I came up with...

All of our closets have been pretty much a disaster since we moved in and so I wanted to do a few things in tackling this closet: 1 // Make it functional. We need smarter storage in here. Baskets, shelves, etc, with a dedicated spot for everything. Right now, random stuff is just shoved into drawers and stuck up on the top shelf with no order. 2 // Make it pretty. I LOVE a gorgeous closet, I really do. I haven't ever had the opportunity to actually decorate the inside of one, so I want to have fun with this guy. I want Maya to love it, and have it be something that will grow with her. 3 // Test out my wallpapering skills. Here is our closet makeover, along with some tips I learned as a beginner when DIYing wallpaper!

The elements of design that every room needs are color, pattern, and texture. But with so many elements, it can be hard to include each when you are decorating. Not to worry! We’ve got you covered! Wall Stencils and a unique wall finish is all you need to decorate with color, pattern, AND texture. In this DIY décor tutorial, we show you how to do the technique of dragging, or stria, which creates fabric-like texture to an otherwise smooth wall.
It’s been just a few days since I shared my hall bath remodel.Since then, I’ve gotten tons of comments and emails on the painted tile floors.I’ll be honest, at one point when I had been squatted down in the floor [with my head up against the toilet] for twenty straight minutes, I considered scraping it all off and just quitting.This is not a quick and easy project, I’ll tell you that right now.But you can see from the photos of the finished bathroom, it’s totally worth it.Today I’m going to share my very honest tutorial on how I pulled off these gorgeous floors.Don’t expect me to tell you have simple it was and how I did it right the first time. Those motivating tutorials are somewhere else on the web. With me, you’re going to get the real truth so you can be prepared for everything. That’s something I wish I had before I started.But even if I had known all these things, I still would have done it, so don’t be dissuaded.If I can do it, you can too.
I literally turned a chair into a piece of art! Just look!A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to find not 1, but 3, of these fabric chairs on the sidewalk - big garbage day in the 'hood!
Turn an old window and some tin cans into a gorgeous herb garden for your backyard. Not only does the upcycled window herb planter looks fantastic in my little garden but it's really practical, as I now have my own little herb garden. The herbs are in portable upcycled tin can planters, that can be easily taken into the kitchen when needed. I decided to use old tin cans as planters as I had lot of success with the colourful tin can planter (click here to see) I made last year. />
