Busy With The Move, And A Good Idea

Sorry for the lack of posts this past week.  Getting ready for the big move has got me super busy.  And, with everything packed I have gotten very few projects done at all.  I do, however, have a bunch of ideas going around in my head for things to work on once we get to the new house!  Less than a week! 

When I came accross this poto on Apartment Therapy I thought it was gorgeous.  Upon reading further I discovered that it was also a handy idea.

 

This little shelf is above a door.  And in our little bathroom(s) at the new house, this may be very helpful!  Head over to Home Depot for the tutorial on how to make one.  I know we will be trying it out!

The Lounge

June 2, 2011 at 2:24 pm (Our New House) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

There is an extra bedroom upstairs that I did not have a particular use for at this time.  Why not use the room as a chance to have some fun and make a relaxing lounge where I can work on some projects?!

Here’s a little tour:

 

Bright, no? But, I love it and find it so cozy.  Remember that couch from before I bought the house?  The trunk was my birthday present a few years back and it now holds scrapbook and craft supplies.  The bright flash made some of the paint look patchy, but I promise, it isn’t so.  The door knobs and latch plates are from doors that were found rotting away in the garage when I moved in here.  I couldn’t keep the old doors, but also couldn’t part with the the hardware.  Any suggestions?
