Roomy Remake: 40M Garage Home, Before & After [Photos] With only forty square meters of space and a single side that can access the outdoors, this little garage is an unlikely candidate for a home retrofit. Amazingly, a plan was made and successfully executed to convert the homeliest of tiny structures into an enviable abode. The before and after photographs of the renovation by Fabre/DeMarien are nothing short of astonishing – a nondescript, white-painted, corrugated-metal garage door that formerly folded upward was replaced with a warm pair of wood panels that slide past one another. Inside, a small forecourt opens up in two directions to access the interior – or serve as a secluded wooden-planked deck space when the front section is closed off to the street. ?Suddenly, the dull curved red tiles on the roof also seem quaint and homey against the wood grain rather than awkward and old.

Today's Fabulous Finds: DIY Crate Are you ready for another paint stick project? Hope so! This one came about out of desperation. You see, I saw this really great decorative wood box at a craft store that I really really loved and I was desperate to have it! :) Unfortunately I didn't love the price tag...$30!

Amazing House Built Across a River This rustic retreat was built right in the heart of Three Rivers, California near the entrance to Sequoia National Park where the enchantment of wildlife sightings runs wild. What also happens to run wild is the river that flows under this home, something that has never been done before or ever since! Kaweah Falls was originally designed in the 1940′s by one of Frank Wright’s very own students, but when the second homeowners moved in and remodeled they decided to add an addition to the home that floats over the river bank.

Painted Wood Wall Art Photo: Claire Ferrante of Little Dog Vintage Materials: -2 pieces of MDF 30 inches x 24 inches and 1 centimeter thick which equals one piece that is 60 x 24. I bought two pieces because I assumed when I attached the wood strips, they would end up being heavy and it would be easier (and safer) to hang them next to each other as two separate pieces

Today's Fabulous Finds: How to Make a Decorative Paned Window In my last post I told you about how I came up with the idea of framing a shelf and showed you the frame and shelf before and afters. It felt like it was still missing something though...what I thought it needed was a paned window. Just thinking about it made me so excited I couldn't wait to get started! I sketched out a plan of how I thought I could make one, got out my paint sticks and got to work. My four year old helped me make it. He measured, marked, and held the other end of the hand saw as we cut.
