Denim Delight

Denim. It’s not just for your behind anymore.  Or your vests. Or your jackets. Or your sleeveless jackets. Which, technically are vests. Ok, so denim has been worn everywhere. But has it been on the wall?

It has now, thanks to this bedroom makeover by Heather. She did a denim paint treatment on the walls, but that wasn’t even the half of it.  Everything else is equally gape-worthy. There’s a teepee with a faux campfire in there for crying out loud.

Coral of Angels

Many of you have had questions about me working with Lumber Liquidators since their big controversy hit.  I had plenty of questions myself. Don’t worry, I will be answering them as soon as I can. (I’m in Texas for spring break, in the most middle of nowhere town where the internet is still a shaky novelty). And don’t worry, there is a happy ending!  More details to come.

But today, let’s look at something pink and happy! My notes say these are coral, but this computer monitor c. 1995 is showing them as pink. You tell me.

Jen at All Things New redid this dresser into a baby changing table and the whole scene is as cute as a button.  Enjoy it while you can Jen, soon enough your baby will be tearing all of that apart, if your baby is anything like mine (an untrained monkey).

Pink? Coral? I give it two thumbs up either way.

 

Bre always does such sharp work.  I love the contrast of white and coral(?) here in high gloss, and check out that new knob! (insert wolf whistle).  (I have a friend who always types out a wolf whistle like this: shwitt shwew! And it always gives me pause, like … “is that a swear word?”) Anyway.

Oscarworthy

Happy Monday! Thanks so much for all your kind words about my mini bathroom makeover!  I truly appreciate it.

So what’s new with you? Did you watch the Academy Awards? I didn’t, but I did scroll through the #oscars hashtag on Instagram, just so I could see what people were wearing. I should teach a class: The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Watching the Oscars.

Don’t hate me, but I think my favorite was Solange, followed by Gwyneth and ScarJo. They were edgy but elegant, and not covered head to toe in tulle and ruffles and sequins.  I’ve made some helpful illustrations to show you my least favorites:

I mean, right? Who were your favorites? Seems like everyone always either plays it way too safe or veers into Crazytown on the Oh No She Di’int Express.

 

Anyway, lets get down to it.  Monday morning makeover coming your way, courtesy of Jennifer at Dimples and Tangles who has recently put the finishing touches on her daughter’s bedroom.

Before: simple and sweet, but nothing to get excited about.  Well, get ready to get excited …

Boxing Day

Like phases of the moon, and seasons of the year, January is for organizing. It’s a fact of the universe.

Let’s stir up your inner organizing goddess with some storage box makeovers. She loves that stuff.  She’ll probably drag you out in the cold to go find one today. Don’t cage her in.  Inner Organizing Goddess needs to be free!

Deb at Lake Girl Paints let loose on this chest that someone else had let loose on before, but not in a good way. It basically looks like they sneezed across some stencils.

She gave it a streamlined look by removing the appliques and adding a chunky new base, rope handles, and painted lath strips to cover the top. So unique and lovely!

 

This toy chest was pretty durn cute, but the owner had long outgrown the nursery rhyme phase.  They asked Joan for a new look, and she gave it an age-appropriate makeover, Union Jack style! I continue to love this look, how about you? Can a country’s flag ever go out of style? I say no, unless it’s made out of like … parachute pants or something. See more from Joan at Nicer Than New.
