So . . ., you've finally found the perfect place, lots of storage, nice size rooms, all the extra amenities. But, then you're told "no painting and no making holes in the walls"! You feel all your decorating plans going out the window. What can you do to make the space your own.

Well don't despair. There are many ways to get around the restrictions and limitations and I am here to share the ways I've overcome them over the past 18yrs.

I hope you enjoy my tips and will also share your own. I'll also be sharing some of my on going projects. Once again . . .

Awesome All in White!

Okay, so as I was strolling through Facebook I came upon this photo!!!  Isn't this bed awesome!!!  This is the creation of the talented Mrs. Billie Nixon of Austin,TX.   She features one of a kind pieces in shabby chic, beach house, french country antique. and vintage furniture.   She has a beautiful daughter, which she shares a picture of on her website.  I've seen many beautiful white pieces on the many blogs I've visited, but have never seen so such a large collection of vintage pieces all in one place.
You will find even more by visiting her website:      All in White Shabby Chic Designs!  She is so so talented and is an amazing example of decorating beautifully with white.  Notice the furniture has soft shades of color and the effect is just dreamy!  You will find even more on her Facebook page:  All-In-White-shabby-chic-and-beach-house-designs

Then I went to her website and found this one below and I was all atwitter with joy!
Just imagine what you can do with the furniture you have.  Maybe you even have a mother or grandmother with an attic you could go treasure hunting in.  It doesn't matter if this isn't your style of furniture, white can be very contemporary or modern also.  Just look for the clean lines you may prefer and get to painting!  Thanks for stopping by for a visit.
