Ask Me!

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Hey everyone!  I’ve been feeling slightly under the weather today – it must be all that running around getting ready for back to school and my new exercise routine – I’m drained!  I decided to give myself the afternoon off with a movie on the couch and some homemade thirty minute minestrone in the hopes I’ll be reenergized!

Tomorrow (Thursday) is a great day for any of you with burning DIY questions – if you’ve got one be sure to ask it over on the True Value Facebook page where I’ll be sitting at my computer answering questions as they post.

Be back tomorrow!

Ten Things to Hang Above The Bed

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

My friend is redoing her master bedroom and can’t decide what to hang above her bed.  I told her there are a medley of options available, from mirrors to artwork to nothing at all.  Her dilemma got me thinking … so I came up with ten different ideas for what to hang or display above a bed in a master or guest bedroom.

1.  Mirrors, Large and Small.  A mirror is a natural choice since large or small, they create an instant focal point above the bed.  You can always balance out a large scale piece with smaller artwork off to the side above the nightstands.

2. Black and White Photographs.   A series of black and white photographs framed above a bed is always a sophisticated classic – the bigger the better!
