Wait, wait, let's back up a little...................you did what to a spare room and (if I may ask) why? And do you have a wife or a significant other living there?

Originated in Mexico, to celebrate dead relatives! I adore Frida Kahlo, have a lot of jewellry themed after her, some wonderful prints, books and a few pieces of kitschy stuff based on her art, like a big red wooden cross with around 60 bottle caps on it. The inside of each cap has one of Frida's paintings on it.
I dont think my hubster would be too pleased with me doing a whole room out in The Day of The Dead theme tho'..lolol.
Oh no.

GOOD!!

GB - remember, you're not allowed to post furniture pics anymore!

Last time you posted some (your dining room set), Sheila saw it and I ended up with a new dining room set, too!!!

If anything John, I think Sheila would no longer trust my judgement if she saw what we have in there now. She might just tell you do do the opposite of whatever I do

gobo - cool room - and you think that's messy? I can see your floor. Therefore, you are not messy. You have a creative mind.
I just finished (last week) painting my kitchen & family room. Still need to install curtain rods/curtains, but I'm trying to decide if I want to stick with the sliding glass doors or put in french doors. Tomorrow (if I remember) I'll put in a photo of one of the rooms I've finished.

Wasabi! Your room is awesome!

Thanks.
It's messy compared to what it was like before school started.
I also did about a 20 min tidy up before I took the pictures.

jkath, don't I know it! Gobo, you are like Felix Unger compared to my kid (probably about your age).
