Living room Re-do: Before & After

SMSN2760 w logo med

A few before and after’s of a living room I did this year.  The house wasn’t in great repair, the floors were badly scuffed and worn down, the electrical had to be re-done which meant all new lighting, and the room needed to be painted.  To save money I opted to paint the original floors black and I used rugs …

Deb’s Top Three: Barstools

kitchen edit pix

Buying bar stools for your kitchen can take some thought.  The style should be in line with the look of your kitchen and there are a lot of different stools available.  Also, the function and comfort are very important depending on how you use the space – for example, is this an area where people will be sitting for hours …

Small space solution: DIY sofa with storage

art edit

This is a small space solution, that can also work if you’re in a home and looking for a multi-purpose sofa/bed/storage. When I was designing this small space above, I was looking for a way to incorporate those three elements.  There are options out there you can purchase, but I didn’t want to commit to keeping a piece of furniture there, …

Having the right type of bed can really make the room. A bed frame or headboard really isn’t necessary, but it does certainly add a finished look to any room. Here are a few of my faves! 1. RH slipcover – this would be the one I’d get today! I love the versatility that a slip cover gives you. You …

One project I’m working on is a beautiful boat house right on the Atlantic Ocean. The space is part of a large dock and will be well used by boaters, swimmers and those looking for some breathtaking scenery while lounging.  The views are incredible! I’m doing a slipcovered sofa in a blue outdoor fabric, this will help with the wear …

Design inspiration: comfy slipcovered chairs

I’ve always been a fan of white slipcovered chairs.  I find the white cover is easier to keep clean than other colours because you can always add a touch of bleach when washing, if you need to.  I have several white slipcovered chairs around, and recently I’ve seen a few that are slipcovered and have a swivel feature.  I have …

DIY: update a coffee table

table after pix edit

This little DIY was something I thought would be an easy change.  I had this old coffee table and the brushed silver legs were feeling dated and tired.  To give the coffee table a new look, I’ve painted the legs with a metallic paint with a bronze iridescent finish.  Here is the BEFORE: And here is the AFTER. The process …

Ask Deb Nelson: furniture with slipcovers

living room edit

Often people ask me about the best style or colour of furniture for their home.  It can be different in every situation, but as many people know, I’m a big fan of slipcovered furniture.  I have a sofa, (that you can see above in a white slipcover), but I have several other covers to completely change the look of the …

DIY: make any table with these Floyd legs

table red legs

I think these Floyd legs are a very smart idea – they attach to any flat surface to create a table.  The legs come in two heights (one is for coffee tables and the other is for a desk) and several different colours. The clamps are removable so you can easily move the table, or change the table size or …
