Are you ready to see a little progress?
A few months ago, I shared pictures of our bedroom and asked for your advice. You'll never know how delighted I was with your response!! So many wonderful ideas and suggestions.
Thee above paint chips were my hearts desire. Recently when we went back to Lowes; I tried to put it out of my mind and just "look." Maybe something else would tickle my fancy. But I walked out of the store that day, toting 2 gallons of wintergreen ash, 1 gallon spruce frost and a gallon of green river. The very colors I chose those many months ago.
You'll be happy to know, the painting part is finished. But keep in mind, we still lack all the WHITE trim boards around the doors, and baseboards. So are you ready?.....
This was before.... with the grey sponge painted walls.
Tadaaa, here is thee after! There are alot of things I still want to change, but the hardest part is finished. All the doors, are painted the darkest color: the Green River. The walls are the medium shade: wintergreen ash. And the hutch, and our whole bathroom, is the lightest shade: spruce frost.
The before picture of our bed..............
And thee after picture, with new bed covering and shams. Oh, I also painted the little wooden boards on that round wrought iron thingy, the lightest shade: spruce frost as well. So far, nothing's turned up that would look awesome above our bed. But I like the L&M, so it's all good. Now I know some of you are wondering why "my" initial got to go first.* Well, don't you want to holler O P when you see L&M? heehee Please don't tell me that I was the only kidlet who sang my ABC's like that? (Yolanda do you see your handmade doily?!!!) Love it!!
I know some of you thought the hutch needed to go. But I like it. Now I even like the gawdy pink glass knobbies. ;) We took the glass doors off the front, and we both like it better this way. Maybe a white pip berry lighted garland across the top of the front? Maybe lace.... ?
If anyone knows a neat way to display the vintage silhouette pictures that are on the hutch, please comment or email me. My dear friend n Sissy Fancynancy started me on the coolest collection of them!
Here's that little corner with thee old desk. My friend Janie thinks a distressed pink wicker rocker is what this corner needs. But I haven't found one yet. Until then, ... I have some ideas brewing....
But for now, .... here's the after.
Last but not least... here's the little corner in the before picture.
And here's thee after. Just using what I already had, and very subject and probability to change. lol
So you see... I really did paint!
Our next thing on the honey do list is new laminate floors in our living room and hallway. Depending on the cost,... we hope to continue it into our bedroom. *Please don't feel sorry for Myguy having to do all these difficult chores on the honeydo. He's always tellin me when we discuss fixing things in our home or on the farm, that I need to write it on the list. He also knows that I wrote a 6"lift and new tires for his muddin truck on the list as well.* He must be proud of that because he's been braggin to the guys at work that he must have the only wife in the world who would write that on the to do list. ;) Live n learn ladies. Live and learn! ;) heeheehaahaahoohoo
Holykisses dear friends,
I'm off to add more feathers to our nest.
