COLOR INSPIRATION: When my partner of 17 years and I split, he kept the house, but I kept the attached shed in the back yard, and converted it into a 180-square foot retreat where I could spend may days.

The Renovation Diaries are a collaboration with our community in which we feature your step by step renovation progress and provide monetary support towards getting it done in style. My plumber came back to install the gas line, and ended up reevaluating his original plan. While things inched along in the kitchen, I turned my attention to the dining room. Last week Gregg, my contractor, installed some new molding around the panels that flank the fireplace. This week, after patching the nail holes and caulking the new moulding, I painted the paneling and the rest of the dining room trim a bright white - Benjamin Moore's 'Super White' in pearl finish to be exact. With the floors refinished and most of the walls and trim painted, the dining room is starting to come together. There's another, potentially more serious problem with the fireplace: a crack running all the way across one of the marble side panels. Check out the full series and be sure to join us next week for installment #14 of Dan's Kitchen Renovation.
Name: Zemeer Location: Seattle, WA Division: United States What do you love about your bedroom?: I love my bedrooms to have dark walls. I particularly enjoy the way candlelight is muted against a matte black wall. It makes every night feel exotic and special, a very welcome retreat after long days spent with our newborn, toddler and menagerie of pets!
Now this is a small space home office at its best! Jordan of Oh Happy Day wanted a dedicated work area that could disappear in an instant, hide their 'Unsightly behemoth printer' and also just look nice when closed up after hours. One used IKEA armoire for $100 and a can of paint.... 'Paul and I both spend a lot of time at the computer and it is so nice to be able to close it up when we entertain or when we want to prevent grubby two-year-old hands from getting into all our stuff.' Seems like Jordan has a small camera collection that deserves their own display area. Some ideas to borrow from this corner home office is her use of vertical space, applying corkboard on the inside of the door and purchasing matching magazine holders for a consistent and cohesive look when her armoire office is 'Open for business'.
