both the shower and enclosure are brown. i can take pics tomorrow.

i too am a big fan of the brown and blue, so i tried that, i painted the bathroom blue, i got a matching shower curtain, but it just isnt' doing it for me.


i will take pics tomorrow!

So, my apartment has one of those full enclosure situations, where the wall is all plastic with the built in shelves. sadly i can't ask for it to be replaced because the only thing that is wrong with it is that it is this ugly brown color.

has anyone ever repainted such a thing? if it was white it would much better and the bathroom would maybe look a little bigger than it is (perhaps cleaner as well...brown in the bathroom? yuck...haha)

Rustoleum has these.... http://www.rustoleum.com/CBGProduct.asp?pid=116


i'm just wondering if anyone has any experience with this.

thanks

Selkie,  easiest craft ever!

growing up my mom had baskets all over one wall, i think it would be really neat to have a bunch of different kinds filled with things that  might be in them...like a picnic basket Smiley and placed so people could see in.

but it's not really my style.

my room is kinda shabby chic because just about everything in here was given to me or found. Smiley

I'm really excited about this even though there are so many really great lights in the challenge already. I have never posted anything but this project inspired me to make something with the things i had on hand (ie in the stacks and stacks of things that i will someday craft into something Smiley)




I bought this lamp a few months ago at a thrift store for $1
i figured i could just recover it but whenever i did, i didn't seem to like it
how i bought it...



yesterday i was inspired. I didn't take any during pictures but it really took about 10 minutes.

i took the socket and cord out of the original metal frame lamp, this would work with any light with a cord.

i put the light in the center of the basket and surrounded it with sea shell necklaces i had around, so that it stood upright in the middle. I put the cord through the holes in the back of the basket where you would strap it onto a bicycle.

then i decorated the inside with things i would probably have in the basket if it was on my bike....the flowers are actually the first flowers my boyfriend gave me. the feather i found on the street.  and the heart just has no other home Smiley

anyway, here it is. a kind of wall sconce/shadow box and i love it. '

(i'm really sorry for the not great pics, my camera is acting a bit wonky)
