I just purchased a tufted storage bench from for $99...but there's a gorgeous and more expensive storage bench on The only problem besides the price it the lack of tufting on the Ballard bench.

Country is classic! I have a farm dining table (made in England) and coffee table (Pottery Barn) and just purchased a cannonball bed on eBay that I've already begun painting glossy black.

Country always works because it's comfy, durable and you don't have to apologize for it as it ages and gets a little wear and tear and weathered.

This is brilliant! I love HIGH DRAMA. And Bryan managed to create this with simple, muted colors.

I think some people are missing the point. It's about adding architecture where there is none. I added a faux fireplace to a post-war apartment. Kept it simple, added framed mirror above, small table lamp and few photos and candles. It's a nice, inexpensive (Craigslist) touch in an otherwise blank room. It more closely resembles the 4th picture.

Did you use a paint brush, roller or spray paint to cover the dining table? Did you seal the paint with anything after?

Where is the bed spread from? Did you use anything polyurethane (sorry for the spelling) or something similar to seal the paint on the coffee table?

I love the idea of art on cabinets and actually did an art post yesterday under the same guise of having fun and buying what you like:

Turquoise is heaven. I have a couple of Hollywood regency-style side tables that I intend to paint turquoise and find little potted plants to rest on top.

This is proof that sometimes SIMPLE can be BREATHTAKING.

I especially love the dresser and turquoise lamp shade.
