He said, She said1

It’s the Little Things That Make a House Home:  Karla says displaying a meaningful quote on the wall of your home is subtle way to remember what’s important to you.  She got a beautiful hand painted look with a custom made vinyl decal – and she’ll tell you where to get one for your home.   

Paintable textured wallpaper?  I never knew such a thing existed.  Suzy shows how to use it and use it well. 

UpCraft:  Of course, fixing up the house isn’t all about making it pretty.  At UpCraft, Andrew Lewis shows off his workroom and newly modified workbench, where he comes up with projects as diverse at making your own furniture polish to turning a 1930′s Bakelite telephone into a Skype phone. 

Ikea Hacker:  Michael Fester says he solved two problems in his apartment – light and wall decor – with this remake off two Ikea picture frames.

Design Sponge:  I really like the “before and after basics” on Design Sponge. Like this one on dry brush painting which gives wood furniture a rustic but finished look.

Well, that’s it for now.  Happy painting, happy building, happy weekend!
