Andrea's Future Is Looking Bright with D&D

THANKS ANDREA FOR ALLOWING ME TO DO AWAY WITH YOUR SPACE!
I SO LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU TO MAKE YOUR DREAMS BECOME A REALITY!
HERE IS THE ROOM, A VERY LARGE ROOM!




I TRULY HAD A WONDERFUL TIME COMING UP WITH A LAY OUT FOR THIS FAMILY ROOM:

I OPTED TO ADD A DESK TO ONE SIDE OF THE ROOM, TO BREAK UP THE SPACE.
THIS IS A LONG NARROW ROOM, WITH A FIREPLACE TO ONE FAR SIDE 
(NOT THE FOCAL POINT OF THE ROOM)


TO DIVIDE A SPACE BUT KEEP IT OPEN AND SOMEWHAT TOGETHER, 
AN OTTOMAN IS PERFECT, SEATING ON EITHER SIDE, AND THE SPACE STILL FLOW.

PLEASE DONT MIND THE SLEEPING MAN IN THE PHOTO, HE CAME ALONG WITH THE COUCH!

THIS WILL BASICALLY STAY THE SAME BUT ADDING CURTAINS AND ACCESSORIES WILL ADD COLOR AND WARMTH.

I WILL BE SURE TO KEEP YOU POSTED WHEN THIS PROJECT IS UNDERWAY, BUT UNTIL THEN...
 DREAM "BIG"

I HAVE TO ADMIT.....

REMEMBER THIS ?



WELL I HATE TO ADMIT THAT MY COLOR SCHEME WAS ALL WRONG!!! 
THIS IS WHERE I WENT WRONG...

TO MATCHY FOR THE ROOM!

BEFORE AND AFTER

THE LAMP AND SHADE


I BURNED MY FINGER IN THE PROCESS OF COVERING THIS SHADE.
WHICH CAUSED ME TO NOT TAKE ANY PICTURES 
SO AFTER THIS PICTURE..


IT WAS A WRAP! (SAD FACE)


IN THE MEAN TIME, I WORKED ON MY $4.00 TABLE.



 I PAINTED HER ALL WHITE, BUT WASNT THRILLED... SO




TWO TONED LOOK SO MUCH BETTER !  LOVE!

What is your future looking like?

I have this awesome application where I can redesign my home, just the way that I see it in my head without having to touch a thing...YET!

I am sure that my husband will be happy to actually "SEE" what I am talking about instead of having to imagine it! Believe me I am happy about that too!

For instance I am trying to get him to understand that I want to put cabinets in the laundry room and a table so that I can be able to do a little folding, and all he kept saying was that the room is to small.



It is only 63inches x 96inches.
But not to small!




As you can see I had to stand out in the hallway to take this photos! 
But hey "SMALL" places can have "BIG" things done to them!

What I have been trying to explain:

 Still not "SEEING" it?

 All coming together now?




Ah!!

Now thats what I am talking about!


Now that the plan has been made, time to roll up the sleeves and get to work, no more excuses that it isn't going to fit, or that the space is to small! And there is my glass door, So excited!


Do you want to see what I can do to your room? 
Without spending money or lifting a finger?
Well go ahead take some pictures of that space, take the measurements and send it over! 
Tell me what you will like to see in the room and lets make our dreams come to a Virtual Reality!

I will only redesign 3 Rooms! So if you wanna see, don't waste time! Lets have fun!

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle..

The girls think that it is FUN!!
My Husband thought that I was going coo-coo but helped anyway!!






Yep, I have been collecting "Toilet Tissue Holders":)

I like how natural it is, but thinking that I need to do more with it, maybe I need to do some more collecting!!

Tearjerker

I visited one of my favorite stores today!

I love this place.. It leave me with a warm a tingly feeling EVERY time!
I walk in with smiles and leave with warmth and even a few tears of appreciation.
I am such a baby!


Here are a few of my favorite pieces that I eyed today!
I am in love with this sofa, the legs are amazing, the colors are perfect and she is on sale!


I thought that this lil bird bath was so creative and fun!




I would love to put this in the guest room!

I even love the way that all theses empty containers look stacked! Hey I may frame this picture!


Now please tell me that these items didn't give you a 
Memory
Thought
 or even a
 Chill???
I Know, I Know..
