Just a 'Wee' Start..



I have slowly been working on re-decorating our bedroom
Actually it's never been decorated.
(why do we always put ourselves last, huh?)


Me & the Mister have moved into one of the larger rooms


it has one of the two fireplaces in the house



4 huge windows...



All natural light from dawn to dusk


LOVE IT!




SO....


 I made myself a promise to paint some of our furniture white


I paint & sell white furniture
and I love the stuff
so why isn't there any of it in my home....?


Of course it's always more complicated than that, right?
(more on that in a later post)



These pics are of one corner of our room
The only corner that's kind of completed


...of a room that is approximately 12' x 26'


but oh yeh.....
did you see the white furniture?

what?
you missed it?
Here's one more look!!


A wicked lot more "to do" or "re-do" before I'm done




......as if any of us are ever done
(insert diabolical laughter)

MMMM.... lovely room. I especially loved the picture of the quilts!

the cape on the corner said...

love the details in the furniture. you're right about putting ourselves last-we've been in our house 4 years, and really never done anything with the upstairs. i figured if no one sees it, who cares. but you know what, i see it. and that should matter. so now i love my bedroom, it's a soothing wonderful place!

Your Bedroom Re-Do is fabulous... it looks so peaceful & serene... great job!!!

Every time I try to re-do ours the G-Kids will infiltrate & leave behind evidence of their presence... as we step on Legos & Barbie Shoes that blend in with the Persian Rug Design! *Ouch... LOL* Ah, well... one day...

Thanks for stopping by with more sweet words...
