I have recently installed a wall of tile in my children's bathroom, it has added great interest to an other wise dull room, a nice view from the hallway.

I painted the bathroom cupboards to update them and gave them a brownish glaze to add some depth to the finish .
I built this kitchen chalkboard out of an old door by adding mouldings and painting a large portion with chalk paint, it also hides the side of the fridge and prevents clutter build up from the side of the fridge.
The floors are taking on a worn patina just as I wanted, they are very like pine floor boards you would find in England.

I followed your link from Linda's blog (restlyed home), and I just have to speak up--you have done a wonderful job! It looks like you have a fairly large space to work with, and yet everything looks so homey. It looks like you and I also share an affinity for horizontal stripes! You'll have to see mine: www.evolutionofahome.blogspot.com. Thanks for sharing!

Please tell me how you painted the cabinets and glazed them. I LOVE how they look and would love to try it at my house.

Your home looks great! We're relocating and bought a house w/carpet throughout! YUCK! But we cannot afford to replace at this time. Also, my kitchen is small and there's not really a dining room, just a breakfast area that will have to work. And I LOVE to entertain...any suggestions?
