Vintage Oil Paintings

Flea markets can be a good source of inspiration in creating a visual interest in your homes.  Cheap vintage oil paintings can be a subject of your collection.  You can start with a theme and just continue from there. You will be amazed at how this interesting subject of your paintings could give life to your boring walls.

You could choose a theme that would match the room that you're going to decorate.  Oil paintings of fruits, for example could create an added appeal in your dining rooms.

We shouldn't discount the endless opportunities that we could get from our usual thrift hunt from flea markets.

How to Choose the Best Electrical Contractor

Electricity is a dangerous thing, especially when it's in your home. Of course, you need electricity to power the majority of things in your home, and if you have problems with your electrical system, then you will want to call an electrician as soon as possible. It's important that you not try to fix anything yourself, especially if you don't know what you're doing. If you do something wrong, you put both your life and your home in danger. This article will explain how you can find and hire the best electrical contractor in Ogden to help you out.

Make a List

Before you start flipping through the phone book to find electricians, you will need to do some stuff first. It's important that you understand what's going on in your home as much as you can before you call an electrician. Make a list of the problems that are going on your inside your home, and list them in order of their importance. This way, you will be able to provide the electrician with an organized way of taking care of your electrical problems. You will also be able to prioritize what you want to get fixed in case you are worried about budget and finances.

Do Your Research

Research is a crucial part of finding the right electrical contractor for the job. If you don't do enough research, it's likely that you will end up hiring someone that isn't right for the job. Start your research by asking for recommendations to different contractors from your close friends and family members. You will also be able to do a lot of your research online. Search for local electricians and when you look at the results, pay close attention to the ratings and reviews that others have left about them.

Making the Right Choice

In order to make the right choice about which electrical contractor in Ogden you need to hire, you will need to meet with several different contractors. These meetings can actually serve two different purposes for you. First, you will be able to get a better idea of how much the job will cost. Second, you will be able to see how each contractor treats you in order to make your decision about which one to hire.

Indoor Garden Idea

I chanced upon this simple terrarium when I'm searching for some garden ideas online and I thought of sharing this here as I really find it very cute, elegant and simple to do.  This could also be a nice gift idea this coming holiday season especially if you have friends who are into gardening.  You know, just to get away with the usual routine of getting store brought items.  I think, this could also be a good addition to your dining table, center table in the living room or even at your bed side table.  When given as a gift, I think your family or friend would love the idea that it is unique and hand made.  It will make the gift more memorable, isn't it?

I couldn't wait to have this done and I'm really excited to get back home to do more of my DIY projects. :)

Staircase In Geometric Theme

                        Contemporary Staircase by Portland Interior Designers & Decorators

Since we have long planned of putting up a room on the second floor of our garage, I've always been on a look out for a unique staircase design.  One that's simple, but unique and easy to install even in a limited space.  I fell in love with this staircase in geometric theme. :)  

Wall patterns complements line in space and it enhances the interior's geometric theme.  I love the fact that it's white as it is really looking clean and neat.

Creating an Adjoining Bath in Your Bedroom

                         Eclectic Bathroom by Santa Cruz Media and Bloggers Shannon Malone

I've found this great idea of incorporating a small bath room inside your bedroom. It is plain, simple and compact but served it's purpose.  This is a quick solution for those who wanted to have a bath room inside their own bedroom but is having a problem with space.

The choice of color for the tiles on the floor and on the wall was made in such a way that it will create a contrast on the overall appearance of the master bedroom. A perfect choice of a shower curtain  would also add up to the overall impact of the adjoining bath.

I hope I can make a similar one in the house. :)
