Clean and Crisp DIY Interior Design Inspiration-Web Snippet

These rooms are crisp and clean! I  don’t particularly care for white walls, (as I’m sure you have read) but this really makes me look at the color white differently. What do you think? Are you a fan of white, and if not, would you try this? I think this is a great DIY inspiration space

Happy Decorating!

Could This Be the Real Grayson Manor-Web Snippet

Emily pulls Nolan into this tiny powder room to give him the name of the next person on her hit list. She has to hurry because Victoria and Daniel are awaiting her presence at the dinner table.

Feeling desperate and alone, Victoria sulks in the tub, numb by the death of her son Patrick, who was killed by a bullet from Charlotte’s secret weapon.

Daniel stares into the lake, and ponders on how he can break the news to his family that he’s now the new leader of the Initiative. The first task is to get rid of Conrad Grayson once and for all.

OK, so this is not the Grayson Manor, but it sure as hell looks like it 

I just LOVE House of Turquoise! Thank you for sharing these awesome designs by Jules Duffy

The rooms are so flawless, like  a space you could picture Victoria Grayson sitting in!!! (shout out to Revenge on ABC) I think my favorite is the bathroom. It’s so elegant and clean! And what about the view?? 

Beautiful all the way around. Could you see yourself in any of these spaces? How about recreating one of these on a dime?

And shout out to my script writing skillz!!

Happy Decorating

Try It Tuesday: Small Bulliten Board Covered with My Favorite Shirt

I’m Sharing My Small Weekend DIY Project

I decided to start working on some of the small things that I’ve wanted to do, but just didn’t feel inspired to tackle. This past weekend while I was sitting and watching the Live Well Network, I found the time and the drive

So, we’re looking at this pathetic little bulletin board that just hangs all by itself on my bare wall. I’ve wanted to cover it for a while now, and didn’t know what to cover it with. I got the idea to use my shirt because it’s my favorite, and because the collar is no longer bright white (the way that I like it to be). Throwing it out was not an option, so I decided to put it somewhere where I could always see it.

My Plain old board before.

My daughter helped out a bit. I didn’t have any of the proper tools, so I just used my tried and trusted go-to tools: push pins and tape! Taking the board apart was easy. I just removed the screws from the back and removed the board from the frame. Once that was done, I cut the shirt to see how it would fit. 

Madison, the helper 🙂

When we finally finished, I wasn’t all that satisfied at first. But as I continued to look at the board, it grew on me The lighting in my room is really bad, so this definitely isn’t the brightest picture. I like how the areas where the sleeves once were now serve as pockets. That’s handy for storing small pieces of mail and other important stuff you want to keep up with.  I had an old necklace that I don’t wear because I lost the earrings, so I decided to put that around the collar. 

The finished product (really bad lighting)

So, when you look at that area from afar, you can see how the board helps out the space a lot. Also, it now matches the chair pads for the lunch area. This whole space  is the attic suite that we turned into a mini studio apartment for my husband and I. There are a lot of areas to decorate, and this is one that I wanted to start with-mainly because I don’t plan to do much over here

The wall looks much better to me now 🙂

This didn’t take long at all. The hardest part was cutting the fabric with dull scissors!!! I’m looking at doing a few more things this weekend, and I’ll share the details next Tuesday (and try to take care of that lighting problem.) Here’s a little collage of the pics. I have more, but there was really no need to add all that. 

Just a little collage of pics-before and after.

So, that’s it for Try It Tuesday!
