just a quick trip to the hardware store....



and look what you can come up with...
i am smitten over those lights made out of metal buckets. i look at that picture and think "i can totally make that". i love people who think outside of the box and these are perfect examples of just what can be accomplished!

Hi Shannon,
You're right...Those light fixtures are really, really cool..I am a totally a do it yourself girl..I completely relate. I love the metal tub too!
I also want to apologize for not stopping by lately..I've been pretty busy with the job search, but I finally did go to the Hampton Designer showhouse yesterday..I really needed that! Going to the showhouse completely recharged my battery..It reminded my of how much I truly love being an interior designer..I just have to be patient..My dream job is coming soon, with my name written all over it! I posted the pics..hope you can stop by.
xoxo

I would love to soak in that tub as long as the kiddos were in bed.

I love those pictures. I am really into industrial chic right now and those fit right in. And your new photo in the 'about me' is so beautiful!

Thanks doll,

amazing. Love it when you take something so ordinary but give it a unique placement to make it extraordinary.

Too funny. I was just at home depot last night and I was looking at all of those galvanesed buckets thinking I must make something out of those and voila you answered my thoughts!

would you be willing to share the source of the corrugated wall bathroom?

I love the last image. I think its hysterical that they staged the photo with an open beer! I guess beer and fishing go hand in hand?
