Amazing Kitchen Makeover

Hello my lovely stardusted friends!
It's very cold today here in Greece and it is almost snowing outside! Yipee!
I've got a bad cold myself and I'm stuck in bed for the last days. But the good thing is
that I had plenty of time to wander through the internet and found some amazing stuff!
So, here we go! I saw this amazing kitchen makeover and the after pics are
so gorgeous... you can't even believe this is the same kitchen!

What I love most is the colors they've used. The combination of all white cabinets
with the pale grey on the walls and the accessories in soft blue, just make this place look so
clean and fresh and bright!

DIY: Metallic Three Panel Art

I saw this DIY project in Young and Crafty and thought I should share it with you guys!
It seems to be easy to make and the outcome is really rewarding!
But the coolest thing about it that the whole project costs only $60!
Well, I think I could easily use it in my living room, it would match perfectly!


This is the picture where this creative lady draw her inspiration.


What you'll need is only this:
1. Metallic paint (3 shades plus some black)
2. Three canvases
3. Plaster of some kind

Now, the steps:
a. Spread out the plaster in circular way (as you see it in the image above)
b. Allow the plaster to dry
c. Time to paint. Start with the lighter color from the very center of the painting.
d. As you work outwards start blending the colors until you use
the darker one at the end of it.
e. Make sure to paint in between the canvases and all the edges.
(for the full tutorial with pictures please click here)

And there you have it!


So what do you think? Cheap and great art for your room created by your own hands!
LOVE it!

Tips for Sprucing up a Room

Today's tips are brought to you by Sierra at Ocean Dreams 
(check her bio at the end of the post).
If you want to see her previous post she's written for Stardust, please click here.

Simple Accents that
Make Your Home Ravishing
If you’re in need of simple décor elements to spruce up the interior rooms in your home finding
just a few new accent pieces may be a lot easier than you think. It’s important to look over your overall design in the room first before deciding what new items to buy. Observe the theme 
you currently have or decide what theme you’d like to switch to.  It might only take a few 
subtle changes to obtain the look you’re after as opposed to redoing the entire space.

House Tour: A House in Paris

Not exactly my style in the interiors, but...
a. I love everything in the kitchen....the wooden dining table, the chairs, the glass lighting, the mantel!
b. That glorious stairways and the huge painting is breahtaking.
c. The patio that makes me wanna grab a blanket, a hot cup of coffee and get lost in a good book.
d. The fact that you have to walk yourself through this picturesque pavement full of pots with plants and flowers in order to find your way into the house.
e. And finally did you notice the exteriors? I mean it's situated right in the heart of a Parisian lovely square  - in which I've been myself several years ago!
How could I resist my friends? Have a very lovely week!

My Kitchen

Hello everyone!
How are you this lovely morning?
Some time ago in a previous post where we discussed about my Living Room, I'd promised that I would show you the rest of my house as well. So today I'm sharing pictures of my small but bright kitchen!
When we bought the house from the contractor two years ago it was all brand new,
but the cupboards and the tiles were already installed.
So, we haven't made any changes for the time being. I think they're OK though.
My dream kitchen however in my mind, is a glossy black and white... some day!

I've been awarded! My second one!

Hello, hello!
Wanna hear my news?
I recently found out that my lovely blog friend Fiona from Just Paint it White

awarded me with great balls of fire...

Have you visited her blog yet? She has some mad skills in stenciling! Go check it out!
Thank you so much Fiona! I'm so flattered!

And as a part of my acceptance, I'm required to mention 5 unique things about myself .
Even though I don't feel comfortable doing so, I'll do my best. Well, here it goes:

  1. I have two older brothers, my daddy (my mom passed away), one husband and                               two adorable kids! Ooops... and a lovely little dog named Silky!
  2. I could live for the rest of my life eating only spaghetti, sweets and candies!
  3. I've been trying to lose weight since I can remember myself!
  4. My best night out would be going at a theater or at a casino!
  5. My dream is to live someday in a house somewhere in a mountain,                                                  with a big garden, lots of animals and surrounded my nature (sigh...)

And now I'm required to pass along this award to 5 other deserving bloggers
that are really worth paying a visit...
...which are....
