Cool Ideas

Okay, for me the first thing I did was take off the ugly wall paper border, and the side panels on the windows. Then I took the window side panels turned them upside down backwards and made CD, DVD shelves on the wall. I added on the outside wall a small wooden shelf corbel. Perfect size for the CD’s and DVD’s.

Now for my furniture. We got ride of all the furniture except for the bed.

New Sofa

New Sofa Before

New Love Seat

Sofa after now Love Seat

We first purchased a nice rocking leather recliner and a great Ashley double reclining high back leather sofa. Yes they both fit nicely, but I wanted a bit more room.

Then I dismantled the big sofa ( my husband thought I was nuts ) and put the the two recliners together and made a love seat.

 

 

New Chair

Middle seat from sofa now my new chair

Then I took the center seat of the sofa and made a new chair. Purchased some leather to match it for the sides where they don’t cover it completely and I made big side pockets on both sides of the chair big enough to fit my laptop into. I put decorative nail heads along the sides of the pockets to match the foot stool I purchased to go in front of the chair. Turned out beautiful and my husband loves it. Gave us a lot more room.

Our backyard pond.

Our Fish Pong 5/16Pond growth 8/16Pond 8/16 pond2

 

The pond in our back yard has grown so much. Really beautiful when blooming. It has about 20 some+ Koi fish, some small baby fish that I assume are baby Koi and a good size turtle.

The large-leafed Taro is a native to Asia and is a great resource for shade, given its significant size. Stems of the Taro plant produce and deep purple color, creating a
dynamic contrast between its rich green leaves. The water is well water and it looks dirty from the lighting, but it is very clear and clean.

Why the Alumascape ?

Holiday Rambler Corporation is an American corporation which primarily manufactures recreational vehicles. It was founded in 1953. In 1961, Holiday Rambler’s introduction of aluminum body framing ushered in a new era of lighter, stronger and more durable recreational vehicles (RVs). This aluminum frame (Alumaframe) became the standard for lighter and stronger RVs for 40 years.Set up on lot
