Who doesn’t love www.cb2.com? I do… I could definitely do with cheaper price tags, but there are some affordable things too! Check out some of the things I’m drooling over…
Aren’t these little people vases cute? I’m thinking of getting a set and putting one on each side of our bed… what do you think? It’s only $13.90 for the set… not bad at all!
And check out this red “file file” as they called it. I want to hang it on the wall right inside the front door. Maybe the mail would end up in it instead of piling up on the end table!
And what do you think about these trunks?? I love them!
So what do you think? Love cb2??
HERE IT IS! I know I didn’t get the pictures up as soon as I was wanting to, but they are up now. This is the black and white striped wall. I absolutely love love love it! What do you think?
And a closer look…..
From the beginning… with the help of my wonderful husband! Here he is taping the wall for me.
…. the last of the taping is done.
Here I painted the black stripes with a roller and I’m waiting for my husband to cut in the top part for me. Then it’s on to the white!
The last of the tape is coming off… and it looks SO good!
**NOTE** When we used the roller the black paint bled under the tape a lot, so when we painted the white stripes we cut in the whole thing with a brush and it came out perfect!
So what do you think?? It makes quite the statement! I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out.
This week has been crazy! It seems like there has been a something major going on every day! We finally got done painting the kitchen, living room, and hallway. We’re going to take a break and get all the other things we have to do this week done before we start on the bathroom. I’m hoping to get some pictures of the dining/kitchen area and the living room up tomorrow. We painted one wall in the living room black and white stripes and it looks amazing! Every time I see it I love it even more! I can’t wait to see what you guys think. =) PLUS… I found the perfect fabric for curtains in the living room on Ebay and the price just can’t be beat! Hopefully I’ll get a little extra money this week and I’ll be able to buy it. I’ve been looking everywhere for a black and white damask print… and here it is.
Don’t you think it will look amazing in the living room?? Wait till you see the black and white wall… it’s going to be great and I’m so excited! I also thought I’d show you a picture of the rug I want for the living room. I picked it out at Ikea about a year or so ago. One of these days….=)
I was going to get the 5’7″ x 7’10″ because it’s only $179, but I think I’ll save up and get the 8’2″ x 11’6″ rug ($299). I think it will look even better, bigger! =)
YAY! We’re done with the red walls in the kitchen! It’s looks great, too. Well, pretty good…. ha. Turns out I’m a terrible painter. The only reason it looks as good as it does is because my wonderful husband went over it the last time trying to cover all of my funky looking spots. The color is really good though! Lets look at a couple of “before” pics first.
Whoever lived here before us put up this atrocious wallpaper border… yuck! I’m SO glad to have that down now. I have to admit… I was really embarrassed to have people come over with that ugly stuff on the wall! It wasn’t too hard to get down, once again thanks to my husband! =)
And for some reason they were too lazy to take down the original wallpaper boarder…. so they put theirs over it….. and the original stuff that doesn’t match AT ALL is sticking out on each side! Check it out….
The above pictures and the red paint are in the dining room side of the dining/kitchen area. This next pic is from the kitchen side. We haven’t painted it yet, but the wallpaper is DOWN. =) You can’t see the sink (to the right of the picture, just out of view) because there are dishes in it. lol….
The painting is now is progress…..
And here it is done!! Not too bad, huh? It’s weird how just adding some color makes a huge difference! I’m really excited to see how the final product will turn out. I’m sure it will take us a while to get everything we done in there finished… but we’re on our way now. =)
So what do you think?? Now for the trim (white) and the other walls (white, too) and at least the painting will be done….. at least until my sideboard gets built. =) That’s going to get painted red, too!
Since my husband and I were married, I’ve had a hard time coming up with a good bedroom theme that will be romantic, yet masculine, and something we will both really love and enjoy. I was browsing other blogs and came across an amazing bedroom at Three Men and a Lady. I showed my hubby, and he loved it too! So that is the inspiration for our bedroom. The great thing is I already wanted to go with a grey color scheme and I had a great bedspread picked out at Ikea that will go perfect with this look! I’m really excited about it. Here are the paint chips for the colors we decides on in the bedroom. Three walls are going to be Vintage Grey, one will be Charcoal Smoke, and the yellow (Del Sol) will be for some accent pieces.
Here is a picture of the room that inspired us!
What do you think?? Beautiful, huh!! We’re planning to take on a DIY tufted headboard. It will end up on here at some point. We’ll buying paint sometime this week, so I’ll be getting a few “after” pictures on here soon!
