    • I love fixers! Great project.

      Two homes ago, I took up the orange shag in the bedroom. Under it was newspaper; under that was linoleum; then another layer of newspaper, then wide plank wood floor! Fun stuff.

        • i should be so lucky

          i'm afraid of what i'll find in the deeper layers. there's probably a thousand year old body in the bathroom wall, although that would make a GREAT halloween decoration

          speaking of decorating. paraphrasing speaking with bay;
          'do you think a tall lamp would look okay in the corner by the fireplace?'
          'it seems kind of redundant, the fireplace already throws off light'
          'yeah but that's functional, it's just used during the winter.. look i'm really bad at decorating and creativity'
          'i can see that'
          '*several second pause to process what my sweet baby bay said*'

          he got me, dammit. so a grudging high five on his butt. and maybe a few smacks. cause he works out, so, he got a butts i can smack on

          i have and had so many tabs up relating to fix-it and decor, it's ridiculous. i seeeee what i want in my head. but even doing what little i've done to make the place habitable inside and look less abandoned outside is killing my back. reality does not translate to what my brain says i can do even though i am hell bent on DIYing

          and even though i'm redundant with lighting

          and even though i'm worn down in the head and in the body. i told him that it felt like someone took the thick gnarly sandpaper and put it on a sander and ground me down to the nub

          i finally said f it and just spent the evening and night laying down watching tv because being upright was so unpleasant

          pleh

          i did not know you could paint with glitter
          beautiful
          yeah you are

          Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
          lol

          • I think the housewarming area could use more light from the left side (based on the pictures). How about a table and lamp beside a chair?

            • A thousand year old body would be awesome! Certainly better than a body dead only a few years. (Insert Home Alone "scream face" here.)

              I suck at decorating, so the best I can do is tell you an error to avoid. Don't rush. Whether you're into new things or found things or antiques, search until you find the piece on which to build the room. Because if you don't wait, you'll see it on craigslist about 48 hours after you've settled for a lesser choice.

              A 150 pound concrete Buddha for a garden is only a good choice if you're never going to move again.

              That's all I've got. I don't like matchy matchy for me, so I can never just go in and buy a whole set of anything, and I've made enough errors that stared me in the face far too long that I'm often on the fence about a piece until someone else buys it. I suck at decorating.

              • I agree about don't rush BO. My Mum and Dad have built and decorated quite a few homes over the years. They have done teal doors, yellow doors, you name it they have tried it - however now after all the many experiences that they have had - they will say paint all your walls an off white or quiet bland/neutral colour, and then use all sorts of amazing colours to dress up the rooms. ie black bed covers, or red towels, different coloured throw over the couch, amazing things on the walls.
                In my new wee cave we have sort of done the same, and am loving being able to change a room with a bedcover. I certainly can't afford to buy things regularly but can change the guest bedroom, or my bedroom with the old swapsies.
                I really do agree with Joanie thou - don't rush, and if you get the chance, if you are out shopping or visiting - take pickies of what YOU like !!!!!!

                  hi baby *squish*

                  i took the pics from the front door, what isn't seen is the ceiling fan w/light. it was too bright for my mood and i don't have lamps set up yet so i turned the far light on. the brick and open space extends up about 3.5 feet to the side from the door

                  i found a big dragon skull garden decoration, it's sooo cooo but now i'm tempted by the thought of a 150 lb buddha just because it's the epitome of contrary and stubborn

                  but these are kinda my design leanings, country antiques and jewel tones. i friggen love antiques. maybe i'm weird but older things feel more real to me

                  pinterest and camera will be ready at a moment's notice *nod*

                  but if my brain completely explodes from indecision, i can put my antiques on one table and red pillows on another then just sit and drool from explodey brains

                  and i can't find an adequate gif/pic/video to use as a spacer. the internets has failed me tonight.

                  i bought dog food, a magazine and nail polish tonight. of the 3, only the polish will do me any good because the magazine is a women's throw weights around magazine. i am grudgingly and hesitatingly beginning to accept that i have limitations

                  and it is an ugly thing to accept

                  i do not want limitations, but sitting in the car in the dark in the drive crying.. well.. i guess that i have limitations

                  because the physical activities i've been partaking in along with the rainy weather have completely destroyed my torso

                  i am a strongass woman, dammit. i do not cry in the car in the dark to a country music soundtrack.

                  in my mind i can tear down old walls and put up new walls and create a giant beautiful flower paradise while squatting 100lbs, no problem

                  in reality.. i think i might be crippled. maybe. a little. maybe.

                  or maybe i just need a nap and a pill or 3, i don't know yet

                  but i did pick up some extra sleepy valerians, 2 bag steep coming up
                  beautiful
                  yeah you are

                    Ehhh, crying to a C&W soundtrack? They are tear-jerkers, a good many of them. Crying doesn't make one weak.... lying on your back, giving up, and peeing on yourself? Thats a different story. Keep up the fight. You only lose the war by quitting the fight. Now buck up little camper!

                    If you want I can do a mean R. Lee Ermie immitation if you prefer.....

                    Oh, you know what you get when you play a country song backwards? You get your dog back, your house back, and your ex-wife/husband back....
