If I was famous and had a “life and style” magazine segment…

I’m going to be saying goodbye to my recondo (Redondo Beach Condo); which I have called home for the past 5 years.  I’ve had a blast putting my touch on every wall and I’m sad to say goodbye.  Before selling, I asked my little sister Chanie (Amie…not related…but the closest thing I have to a little sis) to take some pics of the place, just so I could have them.  She captured it perfectly and I’m in love with the images.  She also got some of me and Tawnie…my 9 year old Yorkie (who I bought with my first paycheck as a teacher)!  There were about 422….but here are just a few.

First is my living room.  I spent about 16 hours painting that chevron wall….well really the most time consuming part was the taping!

One of the best parts about living in Redondo is the proximity to the pier…I loved throwing Tawn in the back of my bike and riding at the beach.  She loved it too!

I bought these hanging globes from CB2 and made these terrariums using air plants…super low maintenance!

I was really into the Chevron trend for a while…as you can see!  This wall was super fun.  What was not fun was when a plumber knocked on my door and said there was a leak behind my shower and had to cut out a 10×20 inch chunk out of my hard work….and then proceeded to LEAVE THE HOLE.  Thank God for my rent-a-husband Danny who came in and patched the drywall.  Don’t know what I would do without the Richards family…..they take care of me for sure.  I never did get around to repainting that spot…

The composition of the pic is fun.

I love the dining area.  Those are three mirror doors that slide and conceal a large storage closet.  I painted them with gray chalkboard paint and covered the center with paper wall tiles.  Super easy to install!  One of my favorite pieces in the house is the chandelier I fashioned using vintage cage lamps and light coverings found at a flea market.

And last…here’s my bedroom/craft room.
