Touch-Up Buddy

Hi Peeps,  today's post might be a bit boring but "oh so USEFUL"!!!!
We have a few bold wall colors in our house and with a little boy plus his friends running around, whipping around the corners with nerf-guns, walkie talkies etc. the walls take a beating. And since some of our wall colors are on the dark side, getting a chip really shows. I don't know about you but I always hate having to go into the garage, opening the heavy 5 gallon paint buckets for just a few drops of needed touch up paint.

Family Room in Progress, need your help!

So today I need some suggestions from all of you. I am working on re-freshing the Family Room. I found these awesome large Wood Wall Hangings at WORLDMARKET a couple of weeks ago. They have this pretty wood carving design in a terra-cotta-ish color. They also compliment the Ginger/Red wall color on the other side. The problem is that now my old Sofa pillows just don't look good anymore and I need to find some cool new throw pillows, preferrably LARGE ones. This is where I need your help. What style/color pillows would look good and do you have a suggestion for an on-line store. Also I still need some matching side table lamps! Any input appreciated!

Crap Room to Craft Room

 Hi Peeps, I wanted to share my craft room with you today. The Ikea Armoire used to hold my Computer, but since I got a Laptop I really didn't need an entire office anymore, so I converted the office into my craft room.

Lantern Transformation

I have been wanting a couple of large lanterns for a while, but seems like the really big ones are well over $100 each. Last weekend at Ross I found these UGLY Arabian style lanterns. I got both of them for $60. I hated the shiny silver tops but really liked the shape. So I figured for that price, I'd give them a coat of Spraypaint!

Guest Room Make-Over With An Old Door

I've had this old door/gate in my garage for years. Occasionally I brought it out and used it as a back drop for picture taking....I have seen so many awesome ideas on Pinterest on how to use old doors, windows and shutters for the inside. So it was time to bring it in! Here it is in our Guest Room.
What do you think?
