The bench
Here's the bench I did. I don't have a "before" pic, sorry! It was basically plain birch wood (yellowish tone) with ugly grey flannel seats. I painted it and re-did the seat cushions. It's not a CU but you can see how it looks anyway, I hope.

Oh, I have my leopard plush pillow and toy dog on it too, lol.

I'll share my very easy, VERY cheap DIY art project.

A "vintage"-looking frame ~ The Dollar Tree $1

Ad out of Vogue (Kate Spade one w/ no words on it...I just liked the photo of two fashionistas hitch-hiking to Manhattan)

Here is the finished "product"



I also framed some wrapping paper



haha you can see my fashion scrapbook is missing an "s" sticker

my boyfriend and i made a garment rack out of copper pipes (we don't have a closet) and it's sagging in the middle i'll take a picture tomorrow during the day when it's light...it was relatively cheap and took 2 minutes to assemble!

Here are some pics of my fireplace....

my hubby and I painted it all white and once winter comes we'll load it with firewood and the inside will turn black (like you see from the candles we had in there).

the second pics are of our guest bath....we wanted the sauna feel...so we installed (yes, the two of us together)...wood slats and my husband built the sink out of the same wood.

this bathroom was a closet.
