One of my favorite things to do is decorate. I don't write too much about it but the bug is there once I get going.
And even more fun is finding ways to get the job done without spending very much. Kind of like a champagne design on a beer budget.
And speaking of great bargains, we are still in the process of working on the downstairs laundry room/bathroom. It is almost finished...but there have been other projects we started working on and didn't quite finish. I can take a couple of photos here and there to show some mid-way results...or I could just wait until it really looks right? This was the room we painted with our 1.00 can of paint and the 10.00 countertop....obviously the BEFORE photo.
The other project we are working on is getting the guest room ready for a visitor. And while I am doing that we've freed up another room since my step son has gone to be in the army. He has been at boot camp all this time and we are keeping him in our prayers. I'm sure it was quite an adjustment....going from high school to boot camp!
Anyway, I've been trying to decide what colors to paint these two rooms. One room I'd love to go "patriotic" and do white wainscoting on the lower wall and navy blue on the top portion. We come across so many antique prints, etc in our auction and estate sale travels, I'm sure we could find something great to decorate the room with.
The other room I am doing shabby chic. (See above....remember this was the chandelier chain cover I was making?) I know, shabby chic has been around for awhile but I've never really been able to do it quite the way I wanted to, until now. In fact, it may not be the "normal" shabby chic. I'll show you pictures when that is complete, too. For now here is a "before" shot. Hmmmmm....what are we up to?
Lots and lots of new projects going on...isn't summer great?
