Monochromatic color palettes are usually the easiest to decorate with for beginners. This way you use all of the same color so you really don’t have to worry about matching. This doesn’t mean that you use the same shade of the color because this could be boring and even claustrophobic feeling. Instead, try tan walls with chocolate browns and bring in natural wood elements to create a monochromatic space that still has a lot of personality and life to it. This is a way to get your favorite color in the room in large quantities. You want to make sure that you balance it with neutral colors so that it isn’t overwhelming. Another ideas of paint schemes for living rooms; combination colors. For the first combination you can go for yellow and red. Some do not want these colors in their living room as they think that they are too bright; however, they are actually the opposite of what they think. Incorporating the soft hues of yellow with warm red suggest the Southern France landscape. To make it look more real, you can have sunflowers with green moss and place them in mustard-colored ceramic pots.

    Did you discover the post where a family in similarly digs turned their dinette into a nursery? If you a dining space, it might be best as a for the wee ones:

    I would for an older behold as well – chairs would too mismatched. And you want something that will complement the moulding on the table (I agree, out the leaf except for when you need it).

    I once a 3/4 bathroom in Gouda, Netherlands that I could actually sit on the toilet, my feet in the shower and the sink, all simultaneously!Now, about your situation. If you can the doors to the shower and the storage (put them under your bed), then you could hang a curtain across both. (IKEA/Lenda). I would consume the same curtains on your other windows to unify the space. Short of replacing the sink, anything to camouflage it would inconvenient over time. I would an under sink cabinet that slides underneath and try to everything assign away as as possible. If you could replace the sink (IKEA/Godmorgen w/ legs is a choice), then you could the matching mirror, and this would more furniture-like than your sink/mirror combo. (If you could the sink/mirror combo and store them away, later to replace them (your sink would the wall hardware), then you could your sink with you, sell it, or maybe the next tenant wants it…it may seem a lot, but this is not such a deal in Europe to swap out fixtures. Finally I would paint the some benign, but neutral color if it would the space.

    Thank you! While reading the article, I was expecting to read something about Mali or at least Africa.And, the designs are not simple, and white designs. Mudcloth comes in yellow (dyed from specific leaves) and Indigo (not if Indigo is authentic or not, I so). Some designs hidden meanings.I acquire no with a DIY Mudcloth project, fair give props where they are due.

    Yes, you will want to employ honest one allotment of foam. the template, recommended earlier. Many fabric stores that sell foam will chop it to shape for you. some extra foam from the cutting to consume to stuff the points in the ends, as needed (pointed corners need shaping). consume a dense upholstery foam (usually green in color). I would also recommend that you a simple muslin first and then a zippered slipcover in the fabric you want to for the finish. IIn that blueprint any spills or soil might be remedied with dry cleaning or washing. Also, if you you are able to do it (your sewing machine must be strong), I would piping to maintain the cushion shape looking tight. luck with your project. Polly in Salem

    You can also consume the plastic diffuser material to the sides, instead of poster board. This is what I did (using a 50% off coupon to a pack of the thin plastic sheets in the quilting fraction at Jo-Anns) and I the results!! The plastic lets more light through as well. I would definitely be wary of using poster board. I wrote about my project here:

    apartment in every way, but as one who is reasonably well informed about Shaker design, I searched for examples and did not any among the furniture pieces. The Shakers did a few chairs and tables in imitation of other styles at the time, but they cannot be replied to be authentic Shaker.

    In the world of mass produced furnishings, these ideas prevail: 1) it cheap. 2) it generic enough to “go” with lots of styles. Your is a poster child for this thinking. As a previous poster said, it is neither style, in fact it is a generic “no style” that made it easier for the Western Auto guy to sell it to your mother while your dad got tires on the car. (Not kidding) That said, I agree you a for potential! it to an auto body shop and bear them paint it a cute glossy white (if there are not major dings in it). some soft blue fabric and those speakers and then add some hardware if you want. You will a that even the Western Auto guy wont recognize!

    Thomas, your is so that I took the house tour twice–afraid that I might miss something. In addition to your sense, you are a talented craftsman–from the light fixture to the wood pieces. Thank you for sharing your with us.

    DCGirl33: we actually your Ghost Chair dilemma. The chair was on loan for only a week for a project working with Kartell (these photos were taken specifically for the project, with more photos/detail available via the link above at the of this post), then it was whisked off to another home/participant.

    We hired a pet trainer to the introduction of a puppy to an persnickety cat. It cost $100 and she visited one time for about an hour then followed with a long written plan. It was well worth the expense and left us with a and less stressful family.

    @ScannerJockey I feel your pain! I once planned a party where twelve guests were confirmed two days before. I planned a three course meal and spent the day leading up to the party prepping, only for all but one guest to on me the night before/morning of. I was incredibly afflict by it and felt disrespected by my friends (made the best of the by attractive family over for an impromptu together). Flaky friends are the worst of friends.

    I assume the first room might looked with a fresh rug, some art work and paint (also on maybe the table and chairs). The dining room table strikes me as too small. too small. But I the colors in the room, though.

    The paint for the office — you are so brave– but the result is wonderful. A extremely fun . shelving in the kitchen / dining area. I the mixed furniture styles. The exteriors are too, — plantings on the roof ! I really this tour because there are so many details that work together to this a really personal loved space. dog adorable in his special chair.

    We the Green lunchbox. I researched exhaustedly last year and they are affordable at $30some a piece. I even headed a fundraiser selling them to the students at school because we wanted to the lunchtime waste. Overall, we really them.

    Only the Bugaboo Frog and Cameleon require you to the seat off the stroller to fold it. The Bee folds all in one piece. You need two hands, though.We a lot, and carried the Bee easily up many a staircase. We ancient it with the Graco car seat adapter and are now to the regular seat. It folds easily and fits in the trunk of our VW Golf. Everyone who visits says it is the best stroller they ever pushed.Find a store in your that has the most strollers and a few hours testing them. We found a salesman who demonstrated the pros and cons of several strollers before we settled on the Bee.

    “Had to bear You” art over the bed. . . that seems really, really tacky. Did the owner capture it up at BB&B? Ross? I will easily admit that I often shop at these types of stores, even for art pieces, some of which acquire been quite nice. That slogan would never, ever the cut. Not at any price. Not for any purpose.

    The is not one of snobbery, but provenance, and a demand of whether a is investment-worthy or not. My mother bought a sofa 50 years ago and has had it reupholstered four or five times: totally worth it because the bones are good. composed looks great. Years ago a friend bought a chair at a sale and left it in his garage for a few years, finally deciding to resell it. In the process of it around, he heard something solid around inside; tore the underlining and found a box with many 100-dollar bills in it. Drug dealer hiding place?

    Melinda,One to control the appearance of clutter – frame out an on the door with simple moulding creating an within the door for memos, photos, ect. – which will seem neater that what you have. I recommend offseting the moulding from the edge of the door at least 6 inches on the top and side – bottom frame no lower than chair rail height. Paint the frame an accent color or to match frames you employ elsewhere. Inside the frame paint the surface accent color, or chalk board paint. You could even paper. re-paint the whole door – it looks it needs it and will really the whole project great.

    The orange wallpaper is the same that we had in our aged house – bulky ceiling and wall coverage coupled with a funky (take that as you will) green * carpet – the carpet ran through the bathroom, hallway and KITCHEN!Cool!

    KIDS ROOM! I it for a kids room–especially for families in loft delight in living spaces, this creates a for a child to sleep. The shelves inside could be aged for toys and baskets of clothing. idea!

    Point taken, Kathryn.Since this is color month I would to provide a link to something colorful. A few months ago I travelled to Philadelphia to a mosaic class with Isaiah Zagar. I had a time and the public mosaic Isaiah and the class created was of color. Here is my photo album from the trip:<A HREF=”

    Todd must been inspired by my Aunt Lodie in Mississippi (a reknowned psychic and card reader) who decorated an entire house in strips of contact paper. Marble, wood grain, etc – no surface was spared. Recently she sported curtains made from the rubber shelf liner – no sewing required and washed with a hastily dip in the sink. Ingenius gal.

    Well, today i am presently bombing my apt. I live in a two family house which i love. But, as soon as the weather changed, the roaches came out to party. I had got something called “Enforcer” which is in a dinky brown bottle that you to mix with water. It can accomplish up to 2 gallons. I mixed up only 1 gallon so it can be stronger to the bugs.Well, it worked for 1/2 of them. I a cat also and i also leave his water out and food… Which i contributed to the problem. I had to achieve him out on the balcony with his litter box and food so i can bomb the place. I abhor seeing those roaches around. They would approach out when i play rock music on the radio. (seriously) If i play rap, only a few would out to party.I want to bag the roack chalk also so it can destroy them as backup.. Does anyone know where i can it in Jersey City NJ? Please advise.Thank you.

    I will something already in the trash to scoop out the bacon grease from the pan. a allotment of cardboard from a cereal box, frozen dinner,etc or anything else handy. I am with most everyone else–i 2 uses for papertowels–cleaning up after the and for bacon, sausage, etc. A roll lasts a long time for me.

    Where attain I post this…. Not clear this meets criteria as a “green” cleaner , but rubbing alcohol is incredibly cheap and makes a terrific surface cleaner for non-painted surfaces. impartial dump some on a sheet of paper toweling, or a rag, and wipe away. Leaves no filnm, and It kills the flu virus too.

    If you Poison sumac, you are most likely standing in a bog. The fruits are green… until they ripen to white poison ivy/oak. Often there will be streaks of sap on the stems/trunk as well.
