Temporary Love Seat Cover

Over this Thanksgiving holiday I was expecting my family to come into town for the weekend. My guest bedroom is a mess! Meaning it has almost everything in there but the kitchen sink to make it into a NY apartment! Okay, maybe not that bad, but It’s turned into my mothers personal closet/dressing room. Long story short cleaned it up as best as I could but I had to deal with the elephant in the room. Picture below.
IMG_3175.JPGIMG_3176.JPGAs you can see its old and seen better days. But I was in a jam and needed to do something QUICK. So this is what I ended up doing.IMG_3177.JPGIMG_3179.JPGIMG_3178.JPGTo secure the bottom and the sides I simply used some push pins to hold it in place. Now that the holidays are over looking at the fabric it gives me an idea that I just might use it to reupholster it sometime soon. For now I’ve gotta get back to my day job…transforming people with their beauty thru hairstyling.
Thanks for reading and see you guys again soon! Please leave any feedback or I for that might inspire or I can possibly help with.

HAPPY NEW YEAR/WISH LIST

Now that 2013 is gone. I’m looking forward to all great adventures of 2014 including taking on some Reno projects at my house. I came across somethings on Craigslist today. But I really wish I had a place to store all my pieces I come across that I could use for a future project for myself or a potential client. Here’s what I found:
20140101-172112.jpgThe first thing that came to mind about these doors was designing a Moroccan theme room around these doors. They can be used as room dividers or pocket doors.
20140101-173901.jpgIm still on the hunt for a Queen headboard. Although, this stood out just a bit for me. But didn’t completely sell me just yet but thought I’d share it with you anyway. I’d just sand and paint this baby and call it a day!
20140101-174405.jpgLastly I love this deco dresser. It could be used in multiple ways. As an entertainment center. Place under your wall mounted tv and store electronics, place some decorative picture frames with a nice floral arrangement. Or, it can be used as a double bathroom vanity. Of course, I’d change the hardware, sand and paint it. It be looking good as new!
What’s your New Years Resolutions this year, if you have any?

PLEASE DO NOT DISTURB

Do you have a place in your home where you can just relax and unwind? If not, after seeing this post you may want to reconsider. Men have their caves, and we should too! You don’t necessarily need to transform the space you’d like to unwind in. However, if you have the extra room and a budget for it by all means GO FOR IT! Just be sure to come back and show the transformations.

IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS

It’s been a while since I’ve found an inspirational piece to share with you all. But I think this maybe worth the wait. If I had the room or could remodel one for a client, I’d like to purchase this gem and turn it into a bathroom vanity.

20131015-111051.jpg What I LOVE most about this piece is its details throughout!

Here’s what I would do:

– Apply polyurethane, to bring the sparkle and shine back to life.
– Add new hardware (crystal/glass) to the draws and doors.
– Replace the top with quartz, and a modern sink.

Below are some ideas of what I have in mind for the sink and countertop.

Last but not least for this dresser I’d remove the wheels from the bottom. I can always use those for another project.

I’ve always been a fan of these side tables. They look excellent in an entryway or a foyer. Again nothing much I’d change other then add a mirror inside to show off the details.
