Some of the individual pieces are posted elsewhere, but here is how it all fits together - sort of.

(this is new) before you walk in, my container garden - i have a serious case of yard envy;

Front of the apartment - the kitchen/living/dining areas are all open:

my bedroom:

my happy yellow bathroom:

boyfriend donny's blue bathroom (and yes, that postcard is a boob!)

our office / craft room

How sweet, it reminds me of "The Simpsons" house!
I think that your painted clothes pins and art wire in the last photo are absolutely brilliant.

Can't you find something constructive to do?

No more spray painting in the laundry room.

Omg you have the coolest apartment! Where'd you get that side table in your living room? It's really cool. Good job!  Cheesy

the side table was a cast-off from my old landlord - more detail here:

Wow! Great job! You can paint your apartment, I'm jealous. I love the bathrooms and the office, those have some great ideas!

risaroo: where did you get the big flowers in your bedroom? Did you make them, or buy them? If you made them, can you explain how? They are great!

yeah, i made the flowers. there is a thread here called "giant paper mache flowers" so look there for sort-of directions. its an in-progress prototype, the design still needs work...

glad you like them, and if you have questions let me know. thanks!

It looks really fun! I wanna come over!!  Grin

Where'd the shower curtain come from? I'd love to that kind of thing as a curtain in my 5 y.o.'s room. She'd love it.

and 2...
Now how the heck did you make it through all that painting only to leave yor dining table plain?  Tongue

Would you like to go to a pants party?

the shower curtain and comforter are the same pattern - they came from a store called "homeplace" that is like linens'n'things and bed, bath, and beyond only i think it went out of business.
the tag says "park b. smith, ltd" if that helps.

or are you talking about the postcard one? that came from mark and larry's stuff, a store in dallas. I lived near there, but actually ordered it online: http://www.mark-larry-stuff.com/homepage.asp
it is an independent store, and they even sent a handwritten thank you note and free bath salts with the order!

as to the table...yeah i know... it is that fake wood laminate crap, so that is part of why i haven't attacked it - since i am not sure how well the paint will adhere to it. A lot of the stuff that has been painted was because it was hand-me-down and in really bad shape, and the table isn't THAT bad so it falls to the bottom of the priority list...maybe someday, that would be fun.
