    update: after the wedding my mother in law says i must move into their home until the place gets fully built. so while we're at it, we decided to give his older sister's room a makeover! (she has since moved out).

    colours of the wall are basically mint coloured. and i'm refurbing their old furniture (painting them white and they're letting us keep it for the new house)

    also i've been a magpie and collected things to decorate the room with. mason jars specifically, and fererro rocher chocolate boxes with seashells inside indetad of chocolates

Size:  62.9 KBthis one is a stand i'm gonna use for my arts and crafts. the two seaglass looking containers i've also bought from the bankruptcy sale. they have two openings and can me used to hold ugly tissue boxes, candles, or anything you want. the chocolate boxes are empty ferrerro rocher boxes that i use to keep gemstones and tiny seashells. the empty jars i've gotten from friends so i've kept them and the blue stuff i've gotten from a package from traci hines :3 that make it look super cute.

    the jellyfish lights could easily be made on your own i'm sure...they look simple enough. It looks like the same thin plastic some placemats are made out of...or you could go with these paper lantern ones.

    haha no problem. your orginal lights were pretty...but way overpriced for some plastic and LEDs. I'd much prefer to make them myself. It would be a great craft project for kids too.

    I JUST saw this, sorry! I got the porthole mirrors from a place called Garden Ridge. I've only even seen a Garden Ridge here in Richmond VA but it may be a chain...?

    Here are just a few random pics around my house, haha.... I still have SO MUCH to hang up including my porthole mirror and a couple mermaid pics...

    The room looks dark in the bright sunlight. Is it so really? Or it seems so just in the pictures?

    I've got jelly dolphin and bubble stickers on my bathroom mirror. They're the kind that when it get dusty and fall off, you just wash it with soap and water and they're good as new!

    And the niece loves playing with them in the bath...

    YAAAS! They finally finished putting up the foundations for the house! eeep! so excited!
    i get the keys to my new place on august 11th. 1 day AFTER MY BIRTHDAY!

    We went to pick out our finishes for the house as well. Best part was we got a 8000 credit, so we put that towards the upgrades for the house (hardwood floors in the living area, extra light fixtures, cabling, and paint program so we don't have to break our backs painting...)

    gotta wait until a year so we can do the attic and basement but i have a few ideas for those already too :P

    Oh I LOVE the attic colors! I'm doing my niece's room (she and I share a room since I'm a live-in babysitter) this spring/summer in mermaid tradition and will post pics up when I get the chance!

    I am so psyched - I paint too (nothing really great or anything) and I'm going to use a few ideas from etsy. In fact, for wall art, I was thinking about printing off a silhouette of a mermaid and then cutting it out in glitter paper - using a dollar store frame and some colored paper (or construction paper) behind the glitter paper mermaid or just mod podge the cut out and stick it to the wall with double sided sticky tape (got some at Walmart for $1)

    And I can't wait to see more ideas for your house SeaGlass Siren!
