Ok, so nothing has happened in tiny town this weekend….but I have been working on my real house! I finally put up the painted curtain in the living room. And you know I love before and after pix, so just sit back and enjoy this show!
Living room wall before
after!! it doesn't look that awesome in the pic, but it really rox this room! its just not the same.
mirrors before (check out our white trash back yard and deck...don't be jelous.) these were side mirrors on a wrecked mac truck that i salvaged. i took the mirror part out, and kept the outter holders and polished them up too.
i made the corner holders from cut up coat hangers. i have one on each corner and ribbon holding it all together on the back.
old fake antique mirror i snagged from mom. she was going to trash it.
mirror after! there's nothing that spraypaint and lace can't fix. i have told mom she isn't allowed to trash anything until she clears it with me first :)
close up of the "curtain". this was a nasty old brown bamboo curtain that my boss had hanging down at their dock for years and they were going to trash it....it sat rolled up in my living room forever and i gave it a nice coat of white paint in the early spring. the paint isn't really even so it gives it that nice shabby beach look.
pic before. i also nabbed this from my manager at work a few years ago. i knew i could do something with the frame. if you couldn't tell, 1/2 of the stuff i own came from my boss and her fam. at work. thanks guys!!! saving money never looked so good ;)
pic after! yes, this is the cathedral window WIP from the winter. not what i was originally going for, but i love this a lot more
i L.O.V.E. crackle!! i am far from being good at it, but i still love it.
so that is the tour of my real life living room decor from this weekend. i am actually working on the tiny house some now. i have 1 glue stick left....so i need to get all my ducks lined up before i plug that bad boy in. ahhhh......hot glue gun....every house should have one, right next to the ductape and zippies.
hope yall enjoyed the show!
and Happy Memorial Day!
