Need a quick and easy solution for windows that look too small? I love lots of light and big windows but they are hard to fit into most basements, which was where my new craft room was being built. I researched the topic and saw transom windows which are designed to let more light in above doorways, how could I make that work in my room?
We were creating a laundry and dressing room combo out of a bedroom. We wanted something a little different and maybe even a bit fun in an industrial sort of way... This post focuses on the window portion of the laundry - dressing room makeover.
The shiplap look is all the craze these days and I admit I just can't get enough of it. I have to hold myself back from wanting to shiplap every wall in my house in some way or another.If you want to add some character to your space shiplap is an easy, cheap and fabulous way to do this.Before you get started with any project make sure you have the proper Safety Gear. Here is how the space looked before.
There's something about a chunky craftsman window/door trim that makes my heart melt. I think it's the perfect way to add character to any space, but especially those faux farmhouse spaces like our builder grade ranch. The builder left us with a less than desirable trim, so updating the windows with a chunkier trim really gave this area some va-va-voom! This tutorial is fairly simple and only requires the most basic of tools. Check out the tutorial below and visit my post for the full step-by-step
We bought a house that has an alcove room that we call the Hobbit room because it's such a small quirky space. Our granddaughter has claimed the room but we're still deciding what we want to do here.
The fabulous Debbie Hayes of My Patch of Blue Sky was our guest blogger on ModernMastersCafe.com and she told us a little more about her front door transformation which included transforming her shutters, too - both with our non-fade Front Door Paint line!
Do you have skinny window casings on your windows? Do you lack a window sill? Do you dream of those farmhouse window casings that you see in magazines? Your dream is about to come true.
The rain would always drip inside my storm door and create condensation. I tried a drip edge but that didn't solve the problem. So I decided to make an 18 inch overhang .
I'm in the middle of doing a room reset, changing up our formal lounge room. Our house is about 20+ years old and has wood trims throughout. Some of them looking a little weathered, especially on the window sills. So I decided to start with this room, painting the trimmings white.
I decided it was time to fill the giant ugly windowsill in my bedroom. I want to keep things simple until I move into a more permanent home. I looked on Pinterest and Hometalk for some inspiration and this is what I came up with!
I've been debating what to do with my sidelights since I moved into our house. Wanting to keep some degree of privacy while letting in light was my goal. Here's what I came up with using frosted vinyl and my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine.
When visiting a new furniture/accessory/antique store in town, we came across these magnificent antique wood and iron shutters. The design consultant said that they came from Italy...I could just imagine those amazing shutters flanking a window of a beautiful Italian villa...We did not purchase these shutters on our initial visit...but on the second...you can read about this story here: http://housepitalitydesigns.com/2012/08/28/antique-wood-and-iron-shutters/
This project was fun to see come alive in a few simple steps.I've had these shutters for about six months now or more and hadn't gotten around to working on them, but I knew I wanted to give them a creative look at some point.
I LOVE marble - when we renovated our kitchen the original plan was to have a marble slab counter top.
Renovations ( as always ) took a turn for the worse - with expenses doubling in a very short time.
I had to switch plans and create a marble counter top from 12 x 12 inch tiles - to create a backsplash I purchased marble " thresholds " ( for where the bathroom floor meets a regular floor ) ...
During our home office renovation, we took on a simple project (relative to the other office projects that is!) that made a huge difference. We framed the windows, which was a cheap and didn't take a ton of time.
Learn how you can add farmhouse charm to your home with this one quick project! Cait from Little City Farmhouse used Vanilla Frosting All-in-One Decor Paint to freshen up this old window frame.
Hi guys~ This is one of my favorite projects and it was so much easier than I ever expected. I am in love with the chunky window casings or window trim that is all craze! Window trim instantly make windows bulk up and stand out as the main attraction on a wall or in a room! I started with the smallest window in our house. It's in our bathroom above the "appliance." This way if I screwed it up I didn't waste as much trim as if I had gone with a double wide window!
When we got this house it had 3 huge old single pane and broken windows,during the winter the sofa blanket would actually freeze to the inside of the window....they had to go.... and thanks to a friend, 4 large and 1 extra large atrium argon filled windows were free.....
A view of my partially completed window project for how-to purposes. I wanted a wider trim for an updated look, and a place to add more color.Note that the costs reflect a whole can of spray primer, a whole gallon of drywall material etc, not just the partial amounts this project took.
