DIY : Faux Rock Wall



 My favorite show to watch is HGTV. I saw an episode when a girl painted on a faux rock wall. It looked awesome and I wanted one in my living room. I am looked for other options, cause it took her a week to do the wall, and with kids , a job and running everywhere. I find A wall paper that is screen printed to look like a rock wall. I was very skeptical at first , I did not think it would look good. I am so happy I decided to get this product and it comes with everything I need. It looks awesome and most think it is a real rock wall. You can find it here Platin Art Wall Mural Deco Wall, Stone Wall, 8-Feet 4-Inch by 12-Feet . It is easy to do , and took me an hour.

It comes with the glue to brush on the back. You just need to mix it with water and let it sit for 20 minutes.

I matched up all the pieces, it comes in 8 sheets, I numbered them and set aside. I painted on the glue and hung each one up ,cutting any excess at the bottom.

and the shelves we put up are from Home Depot ,but not done with them yet, The will wrap around the wall. The lights are rope lights bought at big lots on clearance. :) great for accent lighting

How to redo a Bathroom Vanity



I know some of you know, we have been remodeling an old restaurant in a home. This was in our one bathroom and I was so happy to see it go. lol. Some paint, A sink we got from a friend, New Faucet and some handles from lowes.  You can turn those old, warn out items into a new, fresh item.

paint cabinets, I always use mold & mildew paint from Lowe’s as it is easier to clean and great for areas that get wet. Some new handles cost under $6.00. and you can look at yard sales, thrift stores, or online yard sale groups for sinks. We did have to get a new faucet, as the faucet we had before was a 4 inch and the new sink had an 8 in spread for the holes.

end results

I love this. I have done this for an extra coach in kids room also. You can get big blocks of foam at craft and fabric stores and cut them to size. Then you can sew covers for them.  I would also suggest using a full piece of board for back instead of pallet. You can pick them up at any home improvement store.
