An empty bedroom.
With four children this is a rare occurrence at my house.
Now that two of those children are married I have a guest bedroom for the first time in 28 years! Slowly but surely I’m working on pulling this room together by using much of what we already have.
Giving an old table a fresh new look with Vintage Decor Paint by Martha Stewart Crafts was one of my first projects.
For several weeks, okay months, I’d been noticing how dirty our garage lanterns were.
Upon closer inspection they weren’t dirty they were faded. Really faded.
Our garage faces west and 8 years of sun exposure had done a number on their finish. While you might look at these photos and think this is a nice patina, don’t be fooled. They just looked old and dirty. Very dirty.
So after much hassling, nagging and begging Scott finally took the lanterns down for me so I could paint them.
Have you ever thought about all the ways we’re inspired to be creative?
Sometimes inspiration hits me when I’m walking through a fabric store or even a hardware store.
Many time it’s Nature that creates that spark.
Sometimes inspiration hits at the flea market or thrift store.
And sometimes it’s a case of the expected vs the unexpected.
Tucker is at the age where a “big boy room” is just around the corner. When Misty contacted me about window treatments for Tucker’s room she wanted something that would transition easily from nursery to big boy room.
With pale gray walls and plenty of navy and red accents in the room, Misty chose a crisp navy and white chevron for the new floor length panels.
