2011 Projects

Now that we have started a new year, I wanted to post some of my completed projects from 2011. I have been working on my dining room for a long while in bits and pieces. One of the projects I did for the dining room was recovering my chairs. I love how easy this is.

Here is the before:

My kitty, Chelsea, wanted to be a model. You will find her in each picture.

I had these chairs in different rooms before hence the two different fabric choices. I loved these but when we had two dining chairs break, we had to pull these instead of forking out money for new chairs.

Here is the after:

I love the pattern. What I love about this fabric is it is indoor/outdoor fabric, so it is more sturdy. I thought this type of fabric would be great with a toddler eating at our table.

My next post will be the tranformation of my china cabinet.

What projects are you planning on for 2012?

House Inspiration

I love taking pictures of homes and cutting pictures of homes out of magazines. I found this pic from a blog I subscribe to called Simply Seleta.

She found it here.

I just love the roofline of this house.

You have to check out this view!

Janette Mallory is an interior designer who has a blog I follow. She just posted a remodel she did and the view of the Master Bath is AMAZING!!! I did not want to snatch the pic from her blog so here is the link.

How would you like to take a bath in that tub with that view?!?

Are you going to watch it? Let me know what you think.

A couple of things

I posted a pic of a fireplace mantel used as a headboard a while back. Since I don't have too many posts you can scroll down and see it.

I really dig this concept. I found this pic. today:

Country Living

I think the proportion and scale are better. I like the old door too. I think they should have used an old door on the other side too.

I am hoping to begin the process of my dining room redo this weekend. I hope to post some before pics soon. I still have to take them.

I hope you have a great Labor Day weekend.
