A BUNGALOW IN THE HOUSTON HEIGHTS

Did you know that they make one bedroom homes?  I didn't!  We did have the pleasure of living in a sweet little gem in Houston.  My sister bought it as an adventure and left it to us to make it pretty.  It easily sold to a lucky bachelor, and now he lives in this boldly colored home. 

BEFORE

Unfortunately this is the only before picture of the house.  Let's just say there were either boring or VERY poor color choices.

AFTER  Color!  This room had great natural light.  The large mirror over the faux fireplace helped spread it around the room.

That coffee table is made of one part of a folding screen!

This was our tiny shotgun dining room.  I painted it a dark brown and LOVE it.  It was like having velvet on the walls. I also repainted a vintage dresser I found and used it as a buffet.

Panting the inside of a bookshelf really makes things pop!  It's a very easy weekend project.

I loved our itty bitty bedroom!  The natural light always kept it from feeling cramped and dark.

I really wished I had a before picture of the smallest bathroom alive.  It used to be sponge painted macaroni yellow and turquoise. YIKES.
