Please help me find this picture.

posted by: jayjay_teacher on 12.31.2008 at 04:01 pm in Home Decorating Forum

I was surfing for the "wall words" that you can put on your walls, and I saw an example picture that I would like to find again and I have not been able to do so.

The picture was the word "Life" in larger letters with a smaller quote beside it. There were family pictures hung by the smaller quote. The site said that this picture had also been in a magazine ad.

If anyone could help me find the site of this picture, I would really appreciate it. I am thinking of using something similar in my dining area and I would really like to know the name of the company where this is available.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

RE: where store owner's manuals? (Follow-Up #6)

posted by: tommeca on 04.24.2006 at 07:54 pm in Organizing the Home Forum

I put each of the instructions manuals/warranty cards/receipts in a plastic sleeve and then put them in binders. I have the binders separated by "Garage" (tools, yard equipment), "Kitchen" (washer/dryer, dishwasher, etc.), "Small Appliances" (Mixers, Cuisinart, vacuum), and "Electronics" (stereo, cordless phone). This method has worked for me for years. I keep the binders on a shelf in the hall closet, which makes them easy to get to. For these binders, I have created a master index that I keep on the PC. This master index includes the item name and model number - these are invaluable in the case of a burglarly or fire. Whenever I update this information, I email it to my sister (who lives across country) - that way if there's a big earthquake or fire, she'll have the information tucked away for me.

I also have a binder like TallySue - receipts/product information cards for items attached to the house (for a future owner, I suppose). I also keep another binder with fabric samples and paint chips and formulas. And finally, the last binder is full of CDs/instructions manuals for the PC.

RE: Clean Sweep (Follow-Up #9)

posted by: mustangs on 12.30.2006 at 10:05 am in Organizing the Home Forum

Great encouragement and ideas here. You have a leg up on this as you know it has to be done. I wish you the best of luck. BTW: I send DH's NG to the high school. As far as my own magazines (mostly cooking), which I try real hard to limit, I clip what I want to save and throw the mag away as soon as I have read it. I know that there are good places to take magazines, but they would probable build up in piles before that would happen.

My on-going and most challenging clutter is paper. When you (ddcile 5) say that you "can't just get rid of it", I am that way with the paper but because of sentimentality. My thinking is that there might be some paper trail that I must have for taxes, bank error, mother's estate, audits.

Like you, I had enough and had to tackle the problem via a Clean Sweep method. I have an office built-in to a closet in the den and decided that paper management should be relegated to that closet desk. I brought paper piles from other areas of the house into the den. I decided that I would have to touch every piece of paper, it took days so the target area was off limits to everyone. The feeling after the project was euphoric.

The den during Clean Sweep:

This is some months after the project, so it needs tidying up:

RE: Wrought Iron Beds (Follow-Up #4)

posted by: lindabarbara on 12.13.2006 at 12:40 pm in Home Decorating Forum

I recently purchased an iron bed for my guest room and I love it. I chose a simple style, finished in powder white. The style helps to open up the room a bit more and I'll dress it up with bedding.

I think you'll like the bed. It gives a nice old fashioned charm to the room, even though it's not an antique.

Wrought Iron Beds

posted by: kelly002 on 12.13.2006 at 11:50 am in Home Decorating Forum

What do you guys all think of them? I'm considering an iron bedframe instead of the wood bedframes that are more typical round here. I really like this bed: http://www.thewroughtironco.com/celtic2.html

Can anyone vouch for this company and their products?

RE: re-creating the 'TIN' look (Follow-Up #3)

posted by: sharb on 11.18.2006 at 10:11 pm in Home Decorating Forum

Dena911,
I restored an old house a few years ago that we use for vacation. The kitchen ceiling had some cracks in it so I also used the Anaglypta wallpaper. I don't think the Anaglypta was hard to put up, but I did have to instruct the installer. He wanted to use a roller on it which is a no no, in order to keep the texture. I then used the metallic copper paint from Home Depot, the ones in the jars. A little of the paint went a long way. I bought way more than I needed, but luckily could return what wasn't used. I'm including a photo of the ceiling that I happen to have on my computer. The house is 2000 miles from our home.

I painted the ceiling myself, using a brush, no roller. I love it.

Can Anyone Remember??? Joint Compound

posted by: poodledoodle on 11.16.2006 at 10:43 am in Home Decorating Forum

About a week or so ago someone posted a pic of a wall that had a stincil on her living room wall, it was applied with joint compound. It was a huge tree. She had her sofa on the wall with a tree on the wall behind it. It was stunning.... Anyone remember this post or know where to purchase stincils like that..... The poster gave the website name, I went to it and checked it out. The stincils are all seperate so you can make the pattern as large as you would like (very cool). I thought I saved it in my favorites... but guess what?? can't find it now.

Cute screen name. :)

Mine's Benjamin Moore Pismo Dunes. It's a warm gray or soft mocha, and it's the perfect backdrop for all the colors I love most. I've posted these pictures so many times, I'm a little embarrassed to do so again. But here goes...

fly....here's a pic of the kitchen, and it's got a slice of the wall where it's reflecting the light pretty well....

Top of the line (imo) glazes, etc., can be found at the link below....totally worth it.

Just for grins, this is my bedroom....no metallic glazes or anything, but the principals of lighting, etc. hold true. I think it glows with the bedside and floor lamps flanking the dresser on.....

On a serious note, I did the Martha Stewart Milk Pail after I found out it was comparable to the RH Silver Sage. I love it. I did it in a flat, after having used semi-gloss for so many years, and I think it looks great. It is so relaxing and perfect for a bedroom. For the first time, I really enjoy going in there and just feeling "calm".

Might as well also post a pic of the new kitchen backsplash

posted by: kabergs on 11.08.2006 at 10:23 am in Home Decorating Forum

The installers were here last week installing that. I'm so happy to be done with the primed sheetrock but I'm not sold on the color combo of the cabinets with backsplash tile. I love the design of the deco tiles but I'm still having a hard time with the tile color. Although after living with it for a week, I am liking it more.

The deco piece behind the cooktop:

The overall look (haven't painted the switchplates yet and still need window treatment and wall paint, EK Edgewood Green.

What do you think, honestly? If the color isn't working for you either, any ideas that don't involve my DH killing me?

Thanks!

RE: Help me choose my mirrors please (Follow-Up #9)

posted by: natal on 10.19.2006 at 06:45 pm in Bathrooms Forum

With those dimensions it would be tough to use sconces, but fluorescents could slip in fairly easily. In 28" of space I have a 16" wide medicine cabinet with an arched top and 2 fluorescent side lights. Just something else to consider. Seeing well may not be an issue today, but as your eyes age it becomes a different story.
