Currently Working On...

Hot damn, it is Thursday!  This week just flew by, and I have not even found a second to write a post let alone get any DIY projects completed in my house to share with you!  But such is my chosen career... always other people projects and mine in the spare time.  I would not have it any other way!
So with the lack of completed DIY's to tell you about I thought I would share some exciting things been keeping me busy this week... 
Cheryl from O'verlays sent me these amazing O'verlays for a product review!  Two very amazing DIY's are on their way... spare time pending!  I can already say that she has been a doll to work with so I am sure her product will follow suit!
Over the weekend I started DIY Pinch Pleat draperies for my living/dining room.  I have 2 pretty much done... 2 more to go!  I am thrilled with the way they turned out... I have been using Linda's tutorial from Calling It Home.  She is pure genius!  She also kicked off her infamous series One Room Challenge today (I was honored to take the challenge the first two times around).  This tutorial is from her last ORC.  

But the project that has been on the forefront is my Grandma's reno of her new house!  I have been waiting a bit to share this project, mostly because she was still in the process of buying.  But today she signed papers with title and she will close next week!  I want to have all of the work done by the time she moves in on the 1st of June... so my wheels have been spinning!  With a large chunk of help from my parents, we are going to make this house amazing!  Here are a few of the selections I have worked up for her.  I have previously called my Gma's style "Asian Granny."  She loves traditional touches of foo-foo and delicate florals but with an asian twist.
Here are some quick shots of the existing house.



What would you do to transform this space?

Congrats to your grandma, I have no doubt its going to turn out good!! love that the kitchen has enough room to house an island, wouldn't it be fantastic to ditch the island and use a more freestanding one - like the iron / marble one from Crate & Barrel or the fab ones at Ikea? Looking forward to seeing this project unfold.

Your one busy lady Tiffany! I can't wait to see what you do with those overlays! And I'm excited about GM's new house too - a blank slate. I would remove that short wall someone was sitting on for sure, my first thing to do, if possible!
