An Old Door Design

I found a nice solid old door at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore for just a couple of dollars.   The door just happened to be the exact width of two craft crates that I got on sale. I went to the hardware store and got one board to top off the crates and one for a shelf. I replaced the glass with bead board… it was more practical. And then Lots and lots of paint… First I painted everything with black acrylic paint I had left over from another project. Then when that dried I coated everything with a white satin acrylic paint. I put it all together with some brackets and hooks and decorative knobs I got 75% off at the craft store. I then distressed it lightly and glazed it with Valspar Antiquing Glaze. I really like it because I wanted it more black and white than [ Continue reading ]

Guest Room Design

When you want to throw a party at your place, the first thing you think about is where would the guests sleep? So, you should sacrifice a room in your house and decorate it special for your guest. Think about how would you like a guest room to be, about what would you appreciate. First of all, a TV in the room shouldn’t miss, a little bit of home accessories (paints, chandeliers) Also, be sure the sheets on the bed are clean and nice. Surround the room with plants and fresh fruits, search a theme for the room and place a bed for two persons, or two beds for one person each.

Is It A Stack of Books? -NO! It’s A Staircase

It’s truly amazing what some imagination and craftiness can do to a set of stairs! Pippa Branham, a bibliophile from England, painted her staircase to look like the spine of her and her husband’s 13 favorite books. She says that she was inspired by an image she saw on Pinterest. For all of us, Pippa shared some images of how she transformed the  wooden stairs into colorful “books” using brushes, tape, paint and, of course, time (6 weeks). The whole project cost the family less than $200, which was less expensive than carpeting the stairs. Pippa declared that  the most difficult part of the project was painting sets of letters sideways. Pippa is a young mother and to ensure the stairs were safe for kids (and not slippery from the paint), she mixed the paint with a small amount of kid’s play sand to make it grittier. If you are a [ Continue reading ]

The Art Of Arranging The Mirrors

If we talked about feng shui in the last article , I thought to choose a piece of this art , namely arranging mirrors to talk about. Mirrors are used in interior decoration thanks to its ability to visually enlarge the room. According to Feng Shui the principles must be to place mirrors to reflect only things positively charged objects . For example , indoor plants , a painting representing nature etc.How and where you should not put mirrors: 1) It is not advisable to have mirrors in the bedroom; 2) Mirrors should not reflect the front door; 3) Mirrors must not reflect any bathroom door or the kitchen; 4 ) Mirrors should not reflect corners of the furniture , columns or beams.  

Nirvana Bathtub Design

This more-than-modern bathtub design was inspired by the intention of reproducing the nightsky into the small “universe” of your restroom. This very model is one of the winners of The Red Dot Award 2009. The following design was conceived by Bathroom Tomorrow, a Thai company from Bangkok. The “Nirvana” Bathtub succeeds in merging the state-of-the-art technology only to offer you a memorable bathing experience. Because of its bizzare shape, this bathtub only uses 40 % of the water that an average bathtub does, aspect that makes it sustainable too. LEDs all over the surface establish the wonderful effect from the pictures. An i-Touch system controlls the lights that the company promotes. What else could be said about this allurign bathtub ?! Care to comment?
