Well the kids are all coming at once with their significant others and I can’t be more excited. Even my grand- dog, Ollie, will be here. My old sewing room was the third bedroom and has never been spruced up since I moved my sewing room to the new addition. It was small and I have let it go for over 2 years since the huge reno we did 3 years ago this August. I usually jump at the chance to decorate a room, but I’m retired and I rather make jewelry and quilts instead of paint walls. But nothing gets a mom going than a visit from the kids and a dog to get the room rolling. So this was before…
Notice my Green drink on the chest. I love my morning smoothies.
I hated that color. It was the first time I picked a color that wasn’t what I thought I was getting. Kind of Grello. I really recommend the new little paint samples you can have mixed in any color. They are wonderful for testing color and are great to have around for touch ups. Then you don’t have to drag the big bucket back in the house. I buy those little mixed colors for many of my craft projects too. Anyway, between helping mom and getting ready for a visit from Roger’s brother Randy, I painted the room.
I found this dust ruffle on Joss & Main and had to have it for this little bed. Isn’t it cute?
We also flipped the fan blades over because the soft wood tone works better with the rustic shabby feel I plan for this room. It’s a free way to make a small change to a room. This fan is original with the house and I don’t love it, but it looks better this way. The white seemed too shiny for critters and a woodland quilt.
I am so happy with this soft and soothing color. I think my “Tennessee Backyard Critter” quilt looks so nice on this restful color. I plan to do the room around “critters”. I love themes. 😉 Now I need to get the furniture painted with the Annie Sloan paint and wax that I finally bought. I can’t wait to use it. This is the chest that will go next to the bed before milk paint and wax.
It has a top drawer, I just took it in to start setting up my paint area and then remembered my camera. More to come later.
