  • Emmy's Parisian Chic Nursery, When my husband and I found out we were having a little girl, my wheels immediately started spinning and construction began!  I have always loved wainscot, so that was the first DIY project my husband tackled. I maximized space by setting the armoire caddy-corner with a changing station to the left and the crib directly on the opposing wall.  The glider and ottoman is also caddy corner next to the changing station. I found an antique mahogany two-tier table with scallop edging from Craigslist -$50- and my mom refinished it in a black pearl stain with gold etching and tulip flowers with the letter M for Baby Morgan. The picture-in-picture was a design inspiration that my mom found in an interior decor magazine. We replicated the idea, wallpapering each of the inside panels bordered with molding, and placed vintage pictures that have been with my family for several years. On the 'changing station' wall, the other two picture-in-pictures have wired vintage figures of a manikin silhouette and Eiffel tower for that Parisian flare. My mother-in-law made all the bedding, drapery, and diaper hanging sack from fabric we picked out a local fabric warehouse in Buena Park, CA.  The crib cornice and curtain tie backs were a great find at the Princess Canopy Shop on Etsy. They are stained in black pearl with brass/gold etching.  We purchased the 'M' wall monogram from CraftCarve on Etsy (the lowest price and high quality finish.) I bought the hanging chandelier on closeout with black shades and matching pink bows were tied using the leftover pink satin bedding fabric. The furniture was purchased locally and the lamp was purchased on clearance at Tuesday Morning -$50-. I shopped around for the rug and bought it for 50% less than retail from after they price matched another competitors price. The crib mobile was purchased on, Nurseries Design

  • Kat's Moldy Master Bath, This is my master bath. I know it is pretty boring & I'm not a big fan of the terra cotta tile or all the crazy copper fixtures. I just found some mold behind some of the trim around the tub. I really need ideas, because I'm not sure how I'm going to fix up this room (& it needs help ASAP)., Bathrooms Design

  • Craftsman's Front Porch, My front porch has 5 separate spaces.  It's also in desperate need of some love.  With a sagging wooden floor in 3 different areas, a roof that floods the 2 terra cotta (and hence the 3 wooden) areas, and few working fixtures, it needs a makeover!, Porches Design

  • Terra Cotta Hall Bath, Originally we hadn't planned on remodeling this bath.  Then while replacing the toilet we discovered that the sub floor was rotted out under the toilet and bath.  So we ripped it out down to the floor joists and studs.  Still haven't decided on a shower curtain or some of the decorative elements., Bathrooms Design

  • 1979, Very interesting kitchen built in 1979.  I've never seen this type of lighting and rotating fan before.  My desperate attempt to update it was to paint the back splash black enamel and I put a white horizontal line of tape.  I also took out the original 2-piece oven/convection oven and put in a regular oven and microwave.  I changed the handles and went over the indented lines in the cabinets with a silver Sharpie.  As a single, retired lady, it's difficult to make many changes.  I want it to be black and white.  Please make other suggestions to update.

Please look at the dining space to see what look I'm trying to achieve.  That space is basically the way I want it., Kitchens Design

  • Our Terra Cotta study-REPOST, Our main goal was to make this room functional, comforting and inviting. Since it sits right off the foyer, we also had to make sure it was clean and organized.  We did a paint glazing technique where we painted the wall and pressed and peeled off plastic sheets. It leaves these vein-like lines on the wall. It was fun but little messy. All worth-it in the end. Please feel free to rate it and give any suggestions and/or comments...deeply appreciate it.

Thank you to everyone that viewed and rated my space.  I've made a few changes to the room, hopefully it's for the better. 

Few people asked about the wall.  Paint color is Terra Cotta from the Martha Stewart Signature collection at Lowes. Mix 1 part paint and 3 part glaze.  Section out part of wall approx. 4'x4' and roll on glazed paint.  Place plastic sheets over wet paint and press down to create vain-like lines.  Release plastic sheet from wall and discard.
Continue small sections of wall until completed., Home Offices Design

  • Terra Cotta Overload, This is the kitchen we're about to move into to.  The people we're buying from are English, so they don't have a "cooker" (stove), also the hole in the side of the kitchen is where the dishwasher is supposed to be.

We're not sure what to do in the kitchen because of the awkward layout.  It's an L-shape with counter space at one end and then a whole "room" which is just empty.

We want to re-do cabinets, flooring, counter tops, and need some serious idea help!

Help us out!, Kitchens Design

  • Stranded on an Island, but we can see HGTV from here, HELP! , Our kitchen was been assembled from used cabinets and home made pieces over 7 years ago. My husband got us this far, then family deaths and my husband's heart attach brought things to a halt. Being self employed we have felt the crunch and now the island has just been too expensive to finish.  It was made from plywood and some broken granite and marble laid about on the top.  That was supposed to be just for a prototype.  It has a nice KitchenAid gas cook top and a down-draft vent, that is not installed.  We have been told that having one built could be $10 thousand dollars!  The rest of the kitchen is nice enough although also un-finished.  We have KitchenAid double oven sitting on a box, and a nice used Hotpont refridgerator and a Kenmore Elite dishwasher. The cabinets were purchased used from a design store when they moved. They have a great Tuscan style finish, although they didn't exactly fit and there is no trim. They have an upper and lower Lazy Susan and although there is an appliance garage, it has no door. The nicest feature is the recycling bins in the lower cabinets. The counter tops are plain white Wilsonart laminate with a back-splash.  We wanted to do some sort of tile but now that is out also. We have a big space but need more counter top area.  
The floor plan is large so there is room to change things a bit.  The wall color is a terra cotta and use of " Bullnose" on all corners. This has been a DIY project with lots of scrounging and using used or slightly damaged appliances as we have little $ to work with. How can we finish this?, Kitchens Design

  • 80's kitchen needs an update, The finish on the solid oak kitchen cabinets is 26 years old and is looking pretty sad.  Since I am going to go to all the effort to refinish them, I am also thinking of changing the stain color and repainting the walls.  I will also close in the soffit grids, add recessed canned lights with under-counter LED lights, and dress up the soffits with crown molding.  I would like to tear out the soffits, but that would mean I have to redo the ceiling and I don't want to deal with all of the plaster dust--so that is off the "to do" list. I have to keep the appliances, counter top, back splash and floor.  DH has threatened to tear out the cabinets and replace them with cheap contractor grade cabinets if I even think of painting the oak. So, no paint on the cabinets! I was leaning towards a reddish cherry or mahogany stain, but it is a galley kitchen with no windows and, with the black appliances, I thought it might be too dark.  (Original window is now a pass through to the family room addition.)  Any suggestions for stain and paint colors?  Back splash is a natural tile; floor is a pale terra cotta tile.  Counter is a neutral Corian., Kitchens Design
