Another before and after post...

I am getting pretty close to finishing up my studio/office.
This is the before shot, ugly treadmill is now gone! bye bye... and the black bench went away did the yellow walls and now it is a fresh robins egg blue! I like it much better with the black accents. Below is my inspiration board and my dress form (her name is Nettie). Mr. Tattered nest built my work table for me, the top is made out of an old door I refinished and the legs are square posts from Home Depot.

I added a few stools and I love it!

A Heat wave!

Spring is in the air...I think. It is going to be 34 degrees today! So I thought I would add some Springiness to my nest. I was at my favorite once a month sale Mustard Moon on Thursday and I picked up a few things to lighten my mood. Here is a bunny from my favorite artist Suzanne! She is in a new shop next door to Mustard Moon and the shop is called Carver Creek Dry goods...Isn't this bunny sweet and glittery? thanks for lifting my spirits Suzanne! I am busy today redoing my studio/ to come. Have a great weekend!

My HL stash!

Here are my bargains that I purchased in the 80 percent off isle at HL. The little suitcase on the top of this stack was 5.00! and the picture that says Ladies shoes was 12.00...these are now in my guest room that I repainted...I used Ralph Lauren English tan. I will take a full picture later, my pillow shams are at the embroidery shop being monogrammed. I bought this little black picture frame and added our initial to it. I got the picture frame and mat for 12.00 and the tin shelf below it for 6.00...the K was 5.oo! I like it on my wall going up my open stairway! I had so much fun decorating yesterday.

My little godson Josh is turning seven today! We are off to his house to give him his gift...I love this boy! I have one other godson Jake who is in his thirties and is getting married this spring...Time flies-----------------they will always be my little guys. It has been a nice quiet weekend around here, I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and found a bunch of bargains in the 80 percent off section...I will post about it later. I love that store, but I think they should change the of my girlfriend's always had to chuckle a little when I would say I was going there. She stopped chuckling when she got a chance to much fun! Have a good Sunday bloggers!

Project # three...

Just taking a break in between coats... on project number three. The room I am painting today is our guest bedroom. I am going for a completely different look, it is called the hotel line. Very simple. My sweet friend Lynn inspired me to go with this change, she saw it at Pottery Barn and is going with this look in her bedroom. We have had fun shopping for bedding and picking out paint.While I was painting I was thinking about all the guests that have stayed in this pretty soft room. My dear little nieces who called it the princess room...a teenage niece going thru some growing pains who needed a break from Mom and Dad . My girl, my adult niece who stayed in this romantic room the night before her wedding ! I laid a monogramed hankie with a locket pinned to it on her pillow that night, like her mother did for me many years ago. And A dear friend who also needed a break from reality.I could go on and on.. But it was back to reality for niece is going to be married six years! I redecorated that room a year before her wedding!Time for a change! Good bye cottage look! Here is to a new fresh start and many more memories to come!
