    I have great furniture and I want to paint my living room a complimentary shade. My couch is very creamy brown and my coffee & end tables are maple with flat silver metal legs. We have wood floors too, so I don't know if that makes a difference really. But I really have no ideas. So, maybe someone knows of a website with some options, swatches, a design program. Anything would be great!

  7. What would you want at a store grand opening? Help me make the opening of my boutique great!?

    I'll be opening my boutique "Crush" in South Texas. I buy, sell and trade clothing. (I also buy from places that sell to WetSeal.com / Gojane.com) I sell both name brand and non-name brand clothing and DIY/vintage items. I also sell shoes,handbags, accessories, makeup, unique home decor, art and more. I have made the entrance a lounge. This room contains the check out/front desk and makeup display. It also has a couch, coffee table, TV, magazine rack and free coffee/cookies. I will have coloring books for kids. The next room has all the clothing and accessories sorted into different sizes/styles.Connected to this room are dressing rooms. I have made the entire store have a comfortable, artsy and non-cluttered feel to it. The pricing is low, an Abercrombie shirt might cost you around 9/10 bucks. I've collected a great deal of good ideas for my store and now I'm asking for something else. I need some REALLY great ideas for the grand opening! What can I do to make the day amazing?

  13. I need ideas for coffee tables?

    I'm getting ready to move into our first home and I really want to give my house personality. We have a great color scheme picked out throughout the house already, and I already have a living room set. What I want now is ideas for DIY end tables and a coffee table. I want something with personality, character. i dont want to spend $200 on standard tables that are made by the hundreds. I want something unique. Our living room will be an eggshell/toupe color http://cdn.decorpad.com/photos/2008/05/20/8cbceb7f5d78.jpg with one accent wall in a chocolate color with a wall stencil design throughout. http://st.houzz.com/simages/30412_0_8-2146-traditional-bedroom.jpg our sofa set is a chocolate brown color with pillow backs kind of like the one in this picture: http://www.morfurniture.com/c_detail.aspx?ID=596&CatID=28&Group=10 besides the living room set that we already own and the colors that we picked for the living room, we dont have any other design element or idea for the living room so for the coffee tables and side tables anything goes. Give me any all ideas you may have for DIY coffee tables and end tables. I'm willing to make my own, redesign something found at a thrift shop or garage sale, anything. But I'm having a creativity block and I cant think up any ideas.
