I recently moved into a new townhouse, but as a renter I'm limited to only temporary design solutions. I came across a charming but worn patio set in need some of TLC. I also came across a glider, still in good shape but rather dull with its standard forest green paint job. All of the pieces had great bones but were much too bland for my monotonous gray patio. I knew I desperately needed to add some color while sticking to my very limited budget. With a few new cans of spray paint, a couple yards of outdoor fabric, some imagination and elbow grease, I managed to create a transformation that exceeded my expectations.
Using Rustoleum Painter's Touch gloss spray paint [specifically Sun Yellow & Dark Gray], the patio set was given a sunny & bold, modern look that can withstand the elements. The underside of the glass table top was given a solid coat of yellow that camouflages the many scratches in the glass while introducing a burst of color.
After scraping off loose paint with wire brushes, followed by a light sanding, the chairs and table base were painted with the dark gray spray paint. The chair cushions easily detached from the chairs and were recovered with outdoor fabric I bought from JoAnn Fabrics. I simply wrapped the cushions and stapled the underside with a basic heavy-duty stapler.
The glider and the base of the adjacent marble table were given the same coat of yellow paint to brighten up the corner. A pillow made of matching fabric, along with a bold outdoor pillow from Crate & Barrel warms up the seating area.
It's amazing what just a little paint and hard work can do! Now the patio is ready for its first summer dinner party - with supplies & materials costing under $100!

We decided on a fun, bright, and girly Winnie the Pooh theme for our daughter Autumn's nursery with pineapple yellow walls and bright pink accents. Autumn even has her own chandelier in her closet!

We converted the homes original Master BR into a nursery for our first born child (expected in late May. The room was used by us as an art room / project room before this. We chose colors he could grow into like navy, white, green and a light gray. My wife designed the room and we built it with the help of my Mother, Father and Aunt.

This was a fun hot pink and gray nursery for our first baby. The ikat fabric from fabric.com was a jumping off point. I wanted the space to be contemporary, girly and not too babyish all at the same time! We were on a budget, so I re-used as many pieces I had around the house and shopped for deals online and around town.
After 14 years of boy themed rooms, we finally got to complete a pink girl's room! We chose a cherry blossom theme. Most of the room was DIY and inexpensive to finish. More details of the projects and room are at pinnedsisters.com
