OK, so we bought this house (one year ago this month!) that was a total fixer but it had brand new central A/C and they just redid the kitchen cabinets + appliances and the bathrooms so needless to say we took it. It's a cookie cutter bi-level (some of you will be familiar with this style) Let me know what you think! Also, Leah, if you're out there - thank you for inventing craftster! You are my hero.
On to the pics, I'll try to let you know what justifies them being here. Please let me know if they don't show!
This is one of the only before pics - that wall is comin' down soon!
And here you go - we knocked down half of the wall to make it an open floor plan (well, a friend with carpenter skills helped too
Look at the Roy Lichenstein inspired tea pot!
This is the foyer - yes, there are 3 colors there.
Here is the living room - I did a faux sponge with the 3 colors. The two pictures that follow are the living room progressing into the dining room.
Turn around, you're in the kitchen now - I painted the lightswitch plate.
Other view of the kitchen - I made the recipe "house", with the help of my father
Down the hall, to the bedroom ... refinished the furniture and the keys. I should've taken a close-up of them - very ornate and pretty! I have a thing for skeleton keys, as you soon will learn.
Turn around, there's the refinished desk, soon to be make-up area (need one of those lighted mirrors)
The refinished armoire, I made the 2 shadowboxes on the left.
Close-up of one of the shadowboxes I made.
Made the headboard. I have more of the fabric, which is reversible, and I will be making curtains and accent pillows with the reverse, Silver with Black fleur-de-lis.

Joint compound + paint + stencil =
Bedside tables. I took these garden planter things and repainted the gold fleur-de-lis Silver, then kind of distressed it with Black, but I'm not done. I need to make a mold for the round parts and then construct some sort of tile and mortar thing.
And here's my ducky bathroom - I didn't make anything here, but my "friend of craftster logo" is a duck so there!
Thanks for looking! What do you think?
Oh by the way, the paint colors are Afternoon Tea, Ladybug Red, Caramel Cream, Roasted Chestnut, and Cupid's Heart. In that order I think!
