Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Budget-Friendly Home Makeover

This is a beautiful mirror. I love all the details and how it fits perfectly over the couch, but the color just didn’t go with the décor. I bought this at a garage sale for $200 about 10 years ago. Back in the day when Old World and the Tuscan look was popular.

Now I’m transforming my home in a Coastal décor, but I just couldn’t part with this mirror. So, I’m going to do the unthinkable.

Fresh Contemporary Wall design Makes a Statement

Can you guess where the inspiration for the wall design came from ….

If you guessed the comforter, you’re right. When I’m looking for ideas, I look for patterns, colors, and texture. It might be in a picture, a rug or in the bedding. Sometimes it is right in front of you and you don’t even know it.

No Smudge Caulking

How to apply the perfect caulk line

Inevitably, when you apply molding of any kind to a wall you will end up with gaps. This is because the wall isn’t completely flat. The best way to give it that finished look is to apply caulking. The problem is, when you add the caulking it may come out thick and when you use your finger to smooth it out it will smudge on the wall and make a mess.

But I have the perfect solution.
