  1. Painting the Living Room

    September 22, 2011 by siera104

    I decied to tackle painting my living room, attached dining room, and hallway. I knew I really like the color  Buckskin Pony, a warm mustard-brown. The color name is pretty amusing since I always wanted a buckskin pony. I didn’t want everything to be that color so I also chose the dark color on the same card, for the dining room.

    Before painting I needed to smooth the walls. The dust from sanding the wall was EVERYWHERE.

    THE DUST!

     

    It took over 24 hours to prep the space, then another 12 to paint, then another few hours to clean everything and put it back in place. Below you can see the shade of paint differ from the dining room on the right from the living room.

    I had some pictures in the hallway but I found some very affordabe gold frames, and gold framed mirrors and made a gallery in my hallway. The “Behind every clever girl is a guy with a beard and glasses” print is from Egg-a-go-go on Etsy.

    I am very proud of my handy work.


  2. Dining Room Chairs

    September 22, 2011 by siera104

    One evening I decided to re-upholster my dining room chairs. For any person who wants to start upholstery this is of of the easies projects to begin with. There is no sewing involved. All you need to do if your chair has adequate padding to begin with is a screw driver, to remove the seat, scissors to cut the fabric to size, and a staple gun and staples to attach your new fabric and VOLIA!

  3. Bubble Dining Room Lamp

    June 1, 2009 by siera104

    Using Ready-Made’s instructions for their Bubble Chandelier I made a Bubble Pendent Light for my Dining Room. Brandon assisted in the macrame since he is much better at macrame than I am. I am very pleased with the results. Soon it will be time to take care of those Peptobismal valeances. I will keep you updated.
