It's So "Erica Barry" - Something's Gotta Give Addict!

Something's Gotta Give

I know it is always a favorite topic in blog world but I, too, am guilty of being obsessed with this movie.  I admit that I put it in at least once a week to look at a table or a chair or when I have insomnia.  I also highly recommend the soundtrack!  :-)  Very wonderful. 

I actually love the STORY and the HOUSE!  She is an awesome character and I would love her life - Erica Barry!  Now whenever I see something that would be from her house, my catch phrase is, "Oh that's so Erica Barry"!  LOL  Too funny. 

I became obsessed with the transom windows which served as headers over all of her doorways - SWEET!

Photo was found on  Great blog!

Since my budget won't allow for me to have Mr. Fix It come and make my dreams come true, I have to do it myself.  So, I headed over to my trusty, dusty Builders Surplus store here in Chicago and look what I found! 

Two side lites for a picture window.  BRAINSTORM - I can use those for a header in between my dining room and living room.  YAY!  And they were the perfect width, height, and price.  They were $49.99 down to $45.99 with an extra 35% off.  SCORE!  They are exactly what I was looking for but I think I can make it work - just a little more effort is necessary.  Story of my life!  Just add this to my list of projects but I absolutely cannot wait.  I think I have ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) because I seriously cannot stay focused on one project - terrible habit!  Ok, off to spray paint a light!  :-) 


  1. I wish I had some of your DIY skills! And I agree about loving Diane Keeton's house in the movie - it is amazing.

  2. Actually you do - you just have to have the confidence to jump in and do it! Most of the stuff really isn't that hard - the old saying is true... measure twice, cut once! You'll never know until you try!
