Monkey in the Mural!

Poor Jeff got home from work at 8:30 last night and had little to no interest in finishing the mural… He didn’t seem to think “because I said we would on the blog” was any great incentive! He eventually relented and worked for the next three hours straight doing mostly cleanup work and painting the […]

Inspired by your positive comments, I came home after work yesterday and my feet were already aching, but I wanted to get the leaves on the mural so that Jeff could paint the monkey and we could finish up tonight!Here’s the mural with the leaves on, only the monkey left to do now.. Funny how […]

Mural Progress in the Nursery

When you obsess over the little things like whether or not there should be a monkey in your unborn child’s nursery,  life has a way of shaking you up and making you see reality. This is what happened Saturday morning when I woke up to some bleeding which spiraled into a whole preterm labor scare […]

Smooshing – Don’t Try This at Home!

Have to be quick, preparing for party tomorrow! We tried the smooshing, rolled on the BM metallic veil cream over the BM revere pewter undercoat.  Applied the plastic sheeting and shmooshed.. then peeled and it looked really weird..the patterns the plastic made seemed too busy, too close together. Maybe we didn’t do it right? So […]

Muddy Gray Powder Room – EEK!

We painted the BM Revere Pewter in the downstairs powder room last night.. its one of those chameleon like colors. It looked like a pure gray in my test patch, but when I got the fan deck outside in the natural light it had a distinct mauvish pinky gray undertone.  And last night, but the […]

Faux Silver Finishes

First of all, I forgot to post this baroque bathroom pic yetserday: Pretty no? It has an accent wall like Iloveupstate suggested! Last night I added about 10 shades of gray to my already absurdly large collection of BM sample pots. But I may return nine of them because I fell in love with the […]

Baroque Brocade Bathroom Inspiration

I can’t possibly write a real post today, my head is swimming with random ideas and bits of information on wall treatments and how I can get a metallic-ish, brocade-ish, baroque-ish feel in the powder room. So here’s a little pictoral peak inside the madness: (image from Decor8 archives) from Brocade Home Farrow & Ball […]

The Stencil Project Progress

I downloaded the pink image from istockphoto which cost 3 credits (about $3.40?) which was perfect because that’s how much I had in my account balance from people who have downloaded the two photographs I ‘ve had up there for a year or so. Yes, they are quite popular. Then I got out my stencil […]

Vanity & Dresser Makeover

This weekend I finished the last project on The Porch of Projects, the Craigslist Vanity & Dresser. Both the dresser and vanity had a circle and diamond shaped groove in the top drawer that gave them the distinct look of nursery furniture. So my first order of business was to fill those with wood fill. […]

Meet my new linen closet and the porch of projects

So yesterday I posted about tearing down the upstairs hall built in and how that necessitated buying an armoire to keep our linens and extra bath products in. Never one to pass up an excuse to shop, I have been obsessively scouring craigslist and ebay for weeks! Finally, a few days ago we hit gold […]
