For quite some time we’ve been tossing around the idea of doing something to make our living room less black and white. We knew we wanted green, since it’s our favorite color and bridges nicely to the backyard. The obvious thing would be to add a pillow or two. Which we did, ordering a needlepoint Jonathan Adler one, but our cat Eva decided she’d sharpen her claws in it. D’oh! Adding a plant would also be a nice touch, but we’re having trouble finding just the right one.
Then it occurred to us, what if we made the top row of our Besta entertainment center cabinets, which are a glossy black, green!
Chris has been blogging for Apartment Therapy lately – which is why it’s been hard for him to keep up with the House.0 blog and why I’ll probably be writing up the posts on this site for future DIY’s.
He has a new page and site called MetropoChris.com, where he’ll share stories and outtakes from his blogging adventures – that encompass topics on design and technology. It’ll also be the place for fun recipes and other general Austin foodie things we come across.
Stop by and take a look at MetropoChris.com!
Christy and I finally retired our old Charbroil Grill that served us from day one of House.0
So Christy and I placed an order for a couple new interior doors for the studio apartment as part of our minor refresh of the space.
The doors arrived last week, and I knew I didn’t want to just paint them “all regular” with a brush and a bucket of paint. I wanted them to look smooth and flawless with no brush strokes or streaks. My dad would accomplish the effect with his professional sprayer, and they would look like glass when done. But I didn’t want to go get a sprayer for a two door job. So there had to be another option, right?
Yup. There is.
What you’ll need is Floetrol and a foam door roller.
As you might have gathered from reading this blog, we have a fluffy cat named Eva.
After taking a few trips this past month we began to realize that cat-sitting is quite expensive and perhaps we should invest in some cheaper alternatives while away for short getaways.
