I just love a party!  How often to you change things around?  I do small changes fairly often but every once in awhile I take rooms apart and rearrange things.  This is my teenage boy's bathroom...trust me it isn't close to this clean now.  I decided to consolidate our beach "finds" and diplay them on these shelves.  I made this out of pine boards and trim plus lots of paint.  Then I found containers to hold the small shells and picked out some of my favorite beach photos of the kids.  I like the way it turned out.  The pictures aren't great but the lightly is really bad in this bathroom.

From Drab to Fab

I am slowly redecorating my home office.  I have a million other projects going on and my personal stuff always takes a back seat.  Any hoooo....I have a huge box of fabric in the attic and from time to time I remember to go through it before I head off to the fabric store.  Score!  This old office chair my dad gave me 10 years ago needed help, lots of help.  I had it covered with blue jean fabric before and ripped it off and started to recover it and realized I would like it better with a slipcover look.  So here it is.


I made a pattern with lining fabric and winged it.  I still have some finishing touches to add
Trim and ties to secure it to the chair and I might add foam to the arms to make it more comfortable.

My office is vintage cottage and I am working on a desk now and shelving, I have a new embroidery machine and need to make room for it.  I will post pics along the way. 

Happy Decorating,
