HGTV Dream Home [DIY Style]

Were you one of the many millions who watched the HGTV Dream Home 2012? I missed the actual broadcast, but thankfully it will run endlessly throughout the week. I did manage to watch some of the on-line clips. I also scoured the photo's on the HGTV site. I love the architecture.



I thought it would be fun to review the home as "potential DIY projects". Here is my take on all the ideas that could be replicated.

Starting in the great-room; I am a huge fan of ceiling treatments and this board and batten would not be too difficult


framing four large squares of fabric for a grouping


clustering square coffee tables together to make a large custom size one





adding coffee beans around candles


Line a hallway with lanterns and electric candles. I think this would look great as mis-matched ones as well


Add hooks into the bathroom design


Customize a simple framed mirror


by adding nailheads


Make a custom pet bed


Make candle holders from architectural objects


Paint an American Flag on wood. This would be great using pallet boards!


I think that is enough pinterest projects for now. Did you have a favorite? Would you ever replicate any of them?

I love Park City and this house would suit just fine! I guess I need to enter!

I missed it too :( Holidays were hectic. I did manage to record the new season of Sarah's House which I also missed. geesh. So at least I can console myself with her and Tommy's witty banter for the next few days. As for the dream house....The Pet Bed is to die for and I love the Beams. I am recommending faux beams on the ceiling of a modern country House I am decorating. As long a no one touches them (the feel weird & fake)I see them as a great looking and inexpensive option for architectural interest in homes that are not quite as grande as this one.
