No Time To Rest

The last two weeks have been very busy at our little "fixer upper".  While my husband has been working on a project in the back yard ( will share when completed), I worked on several projects. 

One guest room is complete. Ready for company!

The front door is stained.

Remember the old door?

What a difference that new door makes. 

We painted and added a new swing.

Added new urns.  My husband built the flower box a few years ago.  

The project that I enjoyed the most was refurbishing this vintage kidney shaped dressing table.  The previous owners left it in the garage.  It was dirty and looked like a piece of junk.   

This is the way it is supposed to look.  I found this one on Google images.

I painted it and then gave it a good coat of wax. 

I found these tiered curtains at Target and then I cut them in half.  My husband stapled them to the table. 

Perfect for the girls room!

After all that, I even found time to decorate for Easter.

There is no time to rest, landscaping is next.

I Finally Have A Girls Room

When we moved to be closer to our grandkids, it was my desire to create a "girls" room.  I wanted to have a place just for my granddaughters.  

I wanted to use pink and grey as the color scheme.  I fell in love with a duvet cover from The Pottery Barn until I saw the price tag.  Found a similar one for half the price from Amazon. The pink quilt came from Homegoods. 

Did you notice the picture that hangs above the bed?  My husband bought it for me.  He loves his girls!

This table has been used in so many ways.  It was once a dining table that belonged to my husband's aunt.  He cut off the legs and made a coffee table which was used previously in our son's college house, then in our sunroom.  Now it is a craft table for the girls.  

He made the crayon box too. 

I searched and searched for grey ottomans that were not too pricey.  I like sitting on them too. 

Pillow pets for all and a memory foam doggie bed!  

I had so much fun decorating this room.  There is one more thing I am working on and it has to do with playing "dress up".  Stay tuned.
