  • when i redid the bathroom in my parents house.. they had stripped the wall paper but never got around to finishing the walls.. so one weekend they were gone i got the plaster, filled the nail holes and scratches from stripping the wall paper, primed, and painted it. probably not the best, but the most well meaning.. they loved it.

  • i put in a window for my mom... she previously had a 6 ft by 4 ft window, so I closed up the wall, and replaced it with a smaller window.

  • My loft area. I used a combination of drawer and shelf units (from IKEA) to fit into a long niche and create one long continuous window seat with storage under the two windows, and a little short shelf unit between. I made upholstered cushions to go on the seats, and matching valances for the windows. With the scraps, I added a few throw pillows to go on the seats. It came out soooo nice. I think it's one of my favorite areas in the house.
