great idea -- and good looking, too -- those little paint brushes do come in handy. i think i recall that tree from the rummage sale, what an easy project, one that kids could do, too...then keep for their own christmases when on their own.

Whatever you do, get rid of that chandelier -- either put a plate over its electrical wiring hole or replace it. Sometimes I resent chandeliers because they silently -- passive/aggressive -- can dictate where one should place furniture. If you want a chandelier and want it at another ceiling location, you can always keep that original electrical outlet and do one of those chain gizmos with an S-hook to place the chandelier where you want it.

A great space, pretty light.

Quel clever book! I'll bet most people will like no zippers or difficult buttonholes. Nice descriptions you wrote of projects and levels of skill...

without seeing the photos or even the contributing writer's name, when i saw "...craft room" in the title, i had a feeling it would be a piece by landis carey. well done and clever ideas.

Decor for an Inspirational Craft Room
Dream Green Style

I like the living rooms of both David and Michael. Here's why: I am on the north side of 69 years old. Decor is in my blood. At this stage of life, I constantly have an identity crisis...I love the warmth and eclectic mix of Michael's living room (my past and really me) and yet, as I go down the road, I find myself attracted to subdued and simple (my future?) in David's living room. Both rooms exude comfort -- one of life's great luxuries -- and both are eye candy for me, I can imagine myself in both spaces. My daughter-in-law, Landis Carey, is a contributing writer to Re-nest; partially because of my age and also because of her, and the beautiful, clean and clear design of the wonderful home she shares with my son, I have become a fan of divesting things I thought I should collect!

I recognized your artwork immediately, Mrs. Carey! It looks as great now as when you first put it up on the walls of your attractive home. I am so glad your husband chose those two pieces of art, they are terrific and definitely add a punch of color to your home without overwhelming it. It was as if they were commissioned just for you two and your home.

I am looking forward to seeing more of your work -- written and photographic -- you are a wonderful addition to the Apartment Therapy/re-Nest staff, they are lucky to have you!
