Blue (I mean Turquoise) Christmas

I just couldn't go without making a Christmas scene.  I love this "tree".

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Feliz Navidad, Happy Kwanza and any other holidays that are happening!

Cozy Winter Eve

The black chairs are Warren Richardson that I bought on Ebay.  The lamp is Kaleidoscope house by Bozart.  The accessories are Rement and everything else was bought on Ebay.

The sculpture is Kaleidoscope house and pony print chair is Reac. The background is scrapbook paper.

Refacing the Kitchen

These are the pieces that I used to make up the kitchen in the Atomic Bungalow.  The two white and beige pieces are vintage that I got off of Ebay.  I liked them the way they were and I was going to make new cabinets, but it just was a hot mess.

I cut the larger piece apart to make an upper and lower cabinet. I sanded, veneered and sanded some more to turn the pieces into this.  The blue wall cabinet was also sanded and veneered to match.  I really like the way they turned out.  The silver trim on the counter top is just stainless steel contact paper I found at Lowes.  The flooring is a cork sheet that I put a couple of coats of polyurethane on to make it shiny.  I tried to use finishes that they really used in MCM homes.

Ta Daa!

The atomic Bungalow is now officially least until I decide to renovate which is inevitable.

I do think the living room is a little plain, but that's how minimal design is...clean and simple.  All the furniture in the house is either vintage or hand made by myself or someone else, with the exception of the patio furniture which I got on Ebay.
