Master Bedroom Makeover Reveal

OK…I have teased you enough with my “sneaky peekies” of my bedroom.

You have seen a “sneak peek” of the fabric and pillows . . .

~ ~ some of which were made by my friend Linda.

So without further adieu . . .

Here is what I have been doing in the master bedroom.


I found the duvet cover while at the Pottery Barn in Atlanta . . .

~ ~ it was on super clearance and it had to come home with me.

A Foyer Makeover

I did it!!…I finally did it..

….Another major milestone for me….not much for most bloggers out there…

………but for me, I finally completed my first painted furniture project.

I must say, it was fun…and scary at the same time….

….For I was painting a piece that I have had for a very long time…a piece that was about 100 years old….


From the pic, it looks in pretty good shape…but the top was truly not great…lots of deep scratches and burn marks
from the previous owner…this piece was purchased from an elderly woman who said it has been in her family for a long
time…this person was 85 at the time I purchased it 20 years ago for $50, along with 2 side chairs..such a bargain!

It is a Wisconsin Slider…a table that slides out to seat 12….


All these years I kept a dresser scarf over it to hide the scratches and burn marks…could not be refinished as the
top is veneer….


The table has beautiful carved legs…


So here I go…painting away…


and away….


and then distressed…


and distressed…A totally different look..


This is the foyer before….


And this is after…

Replaced the secretary and added the table, mirror and one more chair…
The mirror I painted a while ago…it is a mirror that I had since childhood…


Come on in….



I found this lamp at HomeGoods a couple of months ago…waiting to place it on the “new table”….


From across the room…


Some carving detail…The foyer rug from Pottery Barn on clearance 🙂





Caught a little rainbow…my room is a multitude of rainbows in the morning…reflections from the swarovski crystals
hanging in the windows….


and another “magical rainbow”…


Next project…to paint that darn a/c return!!…You can see where the secretary landed in the background…the linen chest was relocated to our bedroom…(that’s another future post)….


The mirror that was my very first attempt at the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint….





I am showing this image again…for MAYBE in a short while, this wall may change…

I told my hubby about these shutters I found…he went to see them and was smitten…so here is a sneak peek…



Hope you enjoyed my new foyer makeover!!
