DIY End Table

I recently acquired a fairly ugly $3.00 end table from a garage sale. I loved the shape, but it wasn't the prettiest chicken in the coop (see first image).  All you need to transform something plain-jane into something wonderful like this is two colors of spray paint and masking tape! — Continue reading

The Secret Bed Chamber

Atoll I am not sure why I am intrigued by the Murphy Bed.  Perhaps I watched so many old movies with the bunk folding down in the train car turning the seating area into your own cocoon of a bedroom or perhaps because I’ve lived in old buildings that showed — Continue reading
