Guest Bedroom Sneak Peek

Wednesday, July 23, 2014


We've been getting so much rain.

I'm not complaining, it's nice having a green lawn in late July, but cloudy skies make it hard to take pictures of the guest bedroom.

So today when the sun finally decided to come out for a few minutes,
I snapped a some pictures to share a sneak peek of the updated room with you.


Here is how it looked before...


The walls and ceiling were two different shades of brown.
It was the color our daughter wanted back when she was in high school, which was a long time ago, so updating this room was l-o-n-g overdue!

It took a while to find the right paint color.
Several times I went to Benjamin Moore,
purchased samples,
painted the colors on poster board,
but no luck.

You see, I was working around this...



Yes, this pattern is old.

But the loveseat is in great condition and I like the pattern and colors, so I couldn't see spending the money to get it reupholstered when there are so many other things on my to-do list. 

They say the third time's a charm, for me it was four.
Finally, the perfect color and it Light French Gray by Beher.
Sherwin Williams matched this color for me...




It took 2 coats of tinted primer and 2 coats of paint to cover the light brown paint on the ceiling

and also

2 coats of tinted primer and 2 coats of paint to cover the darker brown on the walls.

And then there was the door, trim, and louvered closet doors to paint.

Needless to say, I was so glad when the painting was finished!


Here's the guest bedroom now...



The bedding is new...










And the window treatments are new...















While I was snapping pictures, Ellie snuggled up on the couch to enjoy the brief bit of sunshine...



When the sun decides to shine again I'll take pictures to share more of the details,

hope you enjoyed the sneak peek.

I am really enjoying this paint color, it's so much brighter in the room now.

Do you like it?

New Porch Pillows

Sunday, July 20, 2014



It was always the color.

Time and time again,

I would bring pillows home only to return them because

the colors just didn't blend well with the other fabrics on the porch.


Until yesterday while shopping at Marshalls...





I was so excited when I found these,

with their pretty floral pattern and bright summery colors.

I was really hoping that these would work and they do!

The colors go are perfect with the bluish cushions on the wicker chairs

and

with the gray pattern on the other porch furniture...




Here's a closer look...




And at only $19.99 for a pair, I thought that was a great price too.


How about you, been searching for anything lately?

The Fourth of July Porch has been changed up and I'll show you more soon,
if you missed our patriotic porch you can see it here.

Have a GREAT Saturday and hope to see you tomorrow at 5:00pm for AMAZE ME MONDAY!
