My mother (whom I love very much and has great taste) went through a phase of spray painting everything gold. Pinecones, leaves, branches, etc. We used to joke that one day she would spray paint my sister and I so we would match the decor.

Perhaps off topic but, I love that file cabinet! Anyone know where it is from?

Question: Does anyone know of a local place to take classes in furniture refinishing? I just know there has to be one!

I love the bird vases- but I hate their website. Really annoying that there is no actual web store.

My parent rented the outside of our house, and the inside of our garage for a movie when I was in elementary school. It was for this film...http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0105217/
Spooky!

I just bought the parson desk in orange from West Elm- its cool to see that I am not the only one suddenly craving orange furniture!

Grey and cream...so soothing and easy to throw in a pop of color here and there

I hate ceiling fans, and the bf has been petitioning for one- maybe this could be an option we can agree on!

I just moved and I feel the same way. Taking a deep breath now and trying to let go....

I know there have been quite a few posts on the subject of FLOR carpets, but has anyone ever used them as stair treads? Our aging shi tzu is having a hard time getting up the slippery hardwood stairs, and I am looking for a fairly inexpensive way to make it easier for him. I was thinking of getting some FLOR squares and cutting them in half to make a carpet for each stair. Thoughts?

ps. Yes, you can totally make it cool! A think just a recovering of the furniture in the fabric you mentioned and a new coat of paint, will be a great start. Keep us posted as to how it goes. (can you tell I have a thing for trailers?)

I am so jealous of your design project! That quilted backsplash is actually quite similar to one I just saw in Sunset.

Only unpacking boxes and trying to find blinds to fit out new bedroom windows. Being woken up at 6am everyday by the sun is getting a little old (and we just moved in last weekend!).

For some reason I have always had black and white animals (growing up:white cat, black dog, now: a black and white shi tzu), which would explain my fondness for grey... a nice blend of both!

It makes me want to lounge around in an vintage silk robe while drinking endless cup of tea and reading Sartre...

oooh! ooh! I have that exact same table, but the cushions are looking super sad. Any tips on how to recover them? I am not the best sewer, but I am willing to take a stab at it.
