Happy Friday everyone! The weekend is finally here and I am so looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow morning.

Today I am mostly liking this drinks area –

from Womans Day (via ??? I have forgotten where I first spotted this pic, sorry)

Sorry for not posting yesterday but I had a small case of the Monday blues. But today I diggin the blues. I just love dark blue walls and white decor together.

Pics from Homes and Gardens

Thanks to the wonderful Elaine for Jaboopee and her fabulous house tour I discovered that House and Home have a new website.

Its full of local yumminess! Lots of house tours and makeovers and a sneak peek at the latest issue. Check it out here.

Eimear and Marty’s colourful living and dining room.

And Eva’s bathroom makeover

I am in the process of making covers for my armchair cushions and let me tell you I am not enjoying it one bit!

For some reason I have choosen a fabric that requires extra effort to line up due to the pattern. Then to make matters worse I decided to go with piping!

Now I spent several hours last night cutting, aligning, swearing, stitching, un-stitching, re-cutting and its no where near finished! And I ran out of piping so I can’t finish it until I get some more! And I don’t have a zipper foot for my sewing machine as it is a cheap brand from Littlewoods!

Well I think the running out of piping might just be a blessing in disguise as I think (time will tell) I found an easier way thanks to the Easy Peasy DIY piping tut on the Little Snoring blog.

Now if you are crazy enough here is a tutorial for covering a whole sofa. I am following part of it for the cushions (except the piping bit).

Black paint really is amazing. You can make a room go from bland to … hmmm what rhythms with bland and means beautiful?

Umm… damn! I should have thought this through. Anyway here are some pretty pictures.

And this bedroom makeover makes me want to run out and buy some black paint. (from Diversion Project)
