although.... the lettering is a little uneven. :[

Hey there stitchers! I've been on craft hiatus for far too long now, and finally decided to finish up some projects and get them posted. I based this embroidery off of a google image of a temporary tattoo. I've been a long time lover of mermaids... mainly due to disney....but anywho... take a look! i'd love to know what you think :]

Hehe, I love Ikea and I'm always drooling over things on their website. I live with my parents, though- I'm single and poor, and I don't have any more room for furniture. I like the silhouette plate above the fireplace (did you make that?); teal and peacock colours are my favourite and it goes nicely with the pea green. I collect design ideas in my head so that I may decorate an entire house one day!

we must be kindred spirits! i made mental design ideas for about 2 years and bought all the neatest cheapest things at the thrift store (and cyber stalked ikea) - then when we bought a house, it was basically like the house was done. (i'm impartial to our method we just established here -the best way to have done up many rooms from scratch.) the silhouette plate was found at a peddler's mall for like 2 bucks. it is tin and flimsy and kinda scratched up - but i do like it with the green too!

Wow! I love it! I'm loving pea green lately, and it goes great with the blanket, and I really like the featured wallpaper and the blind in the blue room in the background (is it Ikea?). The doggies bed in the fireplace is an ingenious use of space. I like the way the sofa divides the room as well.

this green color has always been my all time favorite color, and now I get to benefit for the mass amount of accessories that are around right now! (it makes me giddy!) the shades are two sided - the one you can see is folded up and it is Ikea... you're a smartie!  Cheesy  the other side is a really neat leaf print in the same colors.

 I recently posted our redone kitchen here on craftster, and I finally got around to finishing up the odds and ends in my living room and am ready to post. I have to admit the walls were SOMETHING ELSE to paint. We have plaster walls and they are a complete textured mess of BLAH. Anywho, please take a look!

Very cute! I am in love with the green paint you chose!

I noticed you have a white area beneath the green, perhaps a tiled back splash or something less expense than tile could be used to fill in that area. It seems lacking compared with the rest of yr newly refinished kitchen.

Thanks for your comment! The white area is actually gold fleck formica. You cannot tell form the pictures, but it is in pristine condition. Gold fleck is actually my favorite and I have always wanted it in a kitchen, so I was excited to see that the countertop and backsplash were intact and didn't need to be removed. Also, they no longer manufacture the gold fleck style (which I was sad to hear - my boyfriend's dad works in cabinetry and they just recently discontinued it)

One qualm tho.. (not meant to insult) I think the wallpapered wall is taking away from the fact that you wallpapered the inside of yr storage areas. Granted I understand the concept of having a focal wall (and I see you were going for that) perhaps you have over stepped the bounds with having the whole wall, storage area included, singled out as a focus. The frame around that particular storage area seems more two-dimensional rather than the eye-popping three-dimensional effect the rest of the areas have.

I actually agree with this. We haven't completely finished the walls, we have metal bars from ikea that store kitchen items and a really neat vintage papertowel/waxpaper/aluminum foil dispenser that will also go on that wall...which I think will break it up enough to correspond better to the rest of the room. The spice rack I originally had completely blue.... and that looked about as good as what it does now. So I put the paper in. It's alright, but not great. I hadn't thought until just now that maybe I should have painted the paneling frame around it white to mimic the cabinets and look more cohesive. Maybe I will do that! But again, we are going to completely remodel within the next two years and my main goal with redo-ing the kitchen was to make it appear bigger.

Really, I'm just glad it even turned out. I had this grandiose idea of making it look vintage, but clean and not TOO completely themed. At times I felt like I was just drawing from a magic hat and crossing my fingers that it would come together.

Thanks a lot for the comment, I really do think I am going to paint that spice cabinet white now...and see how that looks. Smiley

Wow! Does that oven still work?  It looks excellently retro. 

I love the paint job too!  It's amazing how much it opens what looked like a small, dark place.
Did you use scrap booking paper in the cabinets? The colors and open cabinets make it feel so airy.

@ RuneAriala- the oven does work.... but just barely! Smiley

@ Cjohns6- I actually used the left over wallpaper from the other wall..... I can comfortably say, I don't love hanging wallpaper, but I love the look!
