I love the bathrooms. These were definitely tired bathrooms so we put beaded board up on walls and in the master on the ceiling as well. I took out the old vanities and pedestal sinks and repurposed a console for the master. A new tub adds "the look" and the mirror over tub is an old window frame that I thought did the job. The guest bath has a vanity made from a steel base and a fossilized coral top with a concrete sink. All of the natural elements come together to make a statement.
All the items are available for purchase so if you see something you like please email me and let me know what you are interested in.
Enjoy the tour!

An unusual basket that would look fantastic on the wall.

Ok so I don't yet know how to do these blogs very well, but we will just keeping working on it.
This is her living room with two basket hanging fixtures. These were done with a swag since we didn't want to hardwire in an apt. The coffee table is an old train depot cart that was rotting in my husband's warehouse. The orange rolling cart is great with old paint on the top. The couch is from Ikea (about $500). The pillows add alot of color to the room.
Her headboard is an old fence. I love the texture of the wood. I used old shutters to frame the windows and the chests are old metal chests. The black and white photography shows up again above the bed and leaning on the chests. Her lamps are made from old drills and the red just screamed to be in the room with that fence!! My good friend Lindy makes these fabulous lamps.
Her apartment was fun to do, low cost and in my opinion looked pretty cool. Many of the items used I have redone for my booth at Scott's.

Vine pendant fixtures
These are the hanging pendant fixtures made from the same vine found in Thailand and Viet Nam. Note this is the same vine as the lamps shown in the prior blog. Hung in pairs or threes or even just as a single this fixture provides a sculptural, graphic feeling in any room. The rope can be customized to any drop and are reasonably priced at $295 each.
I just love these!!
