There was a minute (read hours) of panic over the weekend and a whole lot of, 'am I going to get this done'? We were social butterflies with parties on Friday & Saturday night - majorly cutting in to my work time. But good friends and a beer beat DIY any day in my books. I am so happy I decided to paint the bed frame over the last couple days - super quick and easy to do; that and the slip cover headboard really make the bed so much nicer. This room gets oodles of wonderful afternoon sun so as long as I can remember to water the plants they should survive just fine. Of course, I might move the flowers upstairs for a bit of enjoyment by myself - or better yet I will just hide out in the guest room!
This was really a DIY everything project. Curtains (good old toilet paper rolls), pillow covers, desk top staining, the pink & gray dresser, roller shade & valance, head board slip cover & frame painting, lamp base spray painting, art work (some, not all), curtain rod spray painting, phew. I mean seriously, that's a lot. I think though it's a testament to how little projects done here and there can really make a space personalized and customized. I could say a lot more about this project but I know you just want to look at the photos. Quickly - we've been so lucky to have such great sunshine lately so the lighting was great for photos. Now, I take these myself so nothing overly fancy professional. I've listed some of the product sources at the end of the post.
Now, don't forget what it used to look like.... As you'll see, I moved the bed. This wasn't the intention but when I moved it to paint it just seemed to work so much better there. Of course all the junk being gone doesn't hurt either. Now when I walk downstairs I can smile as I pass by the room and not want to keep the door closed.
