A lot of rooms in our rental recently got a major overhaul in March 2013 when we were participating in Creating with the Stars. We are still working on adding a few finishing touches, but here is what our home looks like now.
Walking into our unit we have a pretty tight entryway. To maximize storage and space, we created a demilune table from a round table, perfect for holding keys and mail. The small size and round edges are perfect for our entryway because it doesn't take up a lot of space!
Moving upstairs, we have DIY ombre frames with custom prints.
Our folded rope dome light has been one of my favorite projects to date!
The second level has two bedrooms and two baths (while the living room/kitchen is on the third). Weird, right? The second level has practically no view, and the third has a great one, so the main living area is up there!
I adore grasscloth wallpaper and nailhead trim! After wanting to use it for a while (and constantly living in rentals) I decided to make a removable feature wall incorporating grasscloth, nailhead, and trim. This way I get the custom look of wallpaper and nailhead, but with minimal (fixable upon moving) damage to the existing walls.
The bright coral upholstered headboard adds a pop of color and the custom curved arms repeat the edge of the nailhead design.

Moving up to the third floor, we have two more landings. Did I mention that it is really hard to move furniture up here? :)
The first has a tall ombre gallery wall
and the second has a custom stenciled wall with frame shelves.
The third level has one long room that we use as an office and living room. This room has changed a lot since March! We still have a few finishing touches, but so far I am loving the updates!
