I have finished a few more tweaks in Mom's old room. I must admit, I
have been being really lazy lately and have not done too much more
tweaking, but I managed to finish some minor tweaks. I added a plaid
pillow to the chair. The bedskirt is in this same plaid. I will show you
that as soon as I finish tweaking the bed.
I painted the old foot stool white and recovered it with the ticking fabric
I found at the Texas Antique Week. I have always been a huge fan of
ticking. It is hard to tell from this photo, but the ticking perfectly matches
the other blues in the room.
I like the way the little chest turned out after I painted it with Annie Sloan
Provence Blue and waxed it with her soft wax. I decided not to distress it.
Now this is a cozy little spot for reading a book or leafing through
magazines on a rainy and cloudy afternoon like the one we are having
I hung this portrait over the bed. I am not sure if it will stay there or not.
I'll keep it there for a day or two and see if I change my mind. I painted
the headboard in Provence and just accented the trim with Old White.
I think that I already showed you the headboard once before.
My next big project in this room is to paint the dresser. It's a big one.
I have to get mentally prepared to tackle the job. Do you ever feel
that way about a big project? At the moment I am getting motivated
to get the job done soon.
Bentley is so cute, he always watches me paint and tweak.
He's my decorating assistant!
Big Texas Hugs,
