the grey on the roof is Dolphin Fin by Behr…and I used a sharpie paint pen to draw some scallops on. Room 1: the kitchen paint color: …yellow of course…mixed it myself. Table, chairs, (similar) bowl of fruit various plates from e Bay, then I printed out some patterns and mod podged them to the plates…and or painted them.

The floor is some of this tile, and the lady who had been working on the house had already cut it to fit this room. everything is hung on the walls with that poster putty stuff.

I made an EAT sign with some wooden letters and balsa wood…the other things on the wall are from the paper pack & that piece of scrapbook paper. (a few other things sent by this group too…) the clay pots I got from Hobby Lobby, painted, and glued some fake leaves inside. I painted the knobs with brass martha stewart gilding-all the gold finishes you see around the house were done with this.

clock, chalkboard…the high chair is part of the nursery set that a group of my fabulous bloggy friends sent me. the artwork are scrapbook thingy-bobs, and I covered all the neatly stacked (ha) books with scrapbook paper!

C and S are surprisingly gentle and good with everything.

I made a little wreath for the front door (which has no handle yet-oops) out of a cardstock circle, beads, and felt.

Before: After: Click here to see more of this makeover from Paint Me White Idea #6: Actually cover the table top with zinc, stainless steel, copper, or any other sheet metal, like this zinc-covered table from Unexpected Elegance.(books from hobby lobby) the little globe is a Little People globe, found on Ebay.Delia crocheted me this rug, too, which fits perfectly in this little spot!I bought a fun vintage sheet of scrapbook paper when I was in Portland at a shop called Collage and cut it up to hang in the kitchen, and some in the girls room. I made the little food canisters with wooden beads, little wood circles, and a bead glued together, then painted. The rug is a scrapbooking journaling card (with felt glued to the back for some weight) from the We R Memory Keepers brand. I put in “baseboards” in this room, the master, and the bathroom.I bought a few of the packs at Target, and used them throughout the house for art work and tons of other stuff! it cracks me up here’s another piece of that paper in action-I made a little light for the kitchen…ghetto-ly stuck up on the ceiling…heh. Found it on Etsy, but the seller doesn’t have this color anymore. This awesome hutch came with the house-it had some ugly fancy trim on top, which I snapped off neatly (it was just glued on), sanded down, then painted this fun aqua color!No need to live with an outdated dining table when there are so many options for updating and making over your table! Idea #1: Paint the apron and base a solid color, and re-stain the top in a rich stain color, like this dining table before and after from Blue 11 Interiors.
