pure genius... thinking about throwing out those old chairs that's been stuck in your garage for decades? now you have a solution to bringing them together as one cohesive group and all it cost was a can of spray paint, some incredible gorgeous fabric and a little manpower... genius, just genius

in the gray

lately i have been loving cool/cold tones but i am a warm person, promise... but there is something that just draws me to gray, i think it's the new black.... however from the pics above you can see how they have mixed gray with beige... the best of both worlds. i want a beige bedroom but now i may have to introduce some grays.... caller you say what?????

i've been busy being creative and creating.... it's been a busy summer so far and we are pining away on our mystery room. I know that you are dying to see the results (patience my friend, it will all be over soon enough)... focus for a minute on the above picture... does this headboard look familiar? maybe search back about 20 years into your memory. still no clue? well this is actually a mirror from a dresser. how do i know you ask? because my mother and grandmother had that very same mirror attached to a dresser and dared to hand it down to me... i have since sanded and stained the dresser and left the mirror part in my mother's garage... but i thought it was a fabulous idea to turn it into a headboard... it really opens up the room and even thought the wood around the mirror is painted a dark color it really makes the room feel fresh. don't you think? i want that, let's pray my mother didn't have a garage sale...
