The clock is ticking.
A few weeks until I go back to work for my yearly temp assignment.
15 weeks of 40 hours.
Not a lot of time for all the really big projects I would like to tackle.
To say nothing of the art, craft and vintage shows I would like to enter.
Why am I talking?
I need to get moving!!!
Much neglected master bedroom needs a LOT of help...
as in total facelift plus some reconstructive surgery.
A few cosmetics and treatment creams just ain't gonna get it for this space, hee hee.
How have I lived with this awful outdated funky green faux paint for so long?
I have agonized over a new color... like forever.
The walls are going to get a coat of Restoration Hardware's Slate.
I saw it in the local store and fell in love.
Seeing it in a space (albeit a fabulous space) helped tremendously.
I will be giving this room a head to toe make over.
Floor to ceiling plus furniture overhaul for very little money (aside from that gorgeous paint).
Our bedroom has been anything but a restful retreat for years.
The non budget isn't changing anytime soon and I am finished waiting.
I am ready to begin.
I have also been hired by a dear friend to style her beautiful daughter's wedding.
It will take place in this fantastic barn and the grounds surrounding it.
I can't wait to get my hands on this space.
You will have to wait until the end of August to see what we do here.
I have also been working on our upstairs bath.
Remember the clearance sale cowboy hooks that went into the closet redo?
I don't waste a thing here.
The back wood piece will be transformed simply by adding new hooks.
These have been hanging around for who knows how long, waiting to find a home.
They will give everyone a place to put wet towels besides the floor.
Ahem. (hint to the family)
The guest room is on the list too.
I am in the process of clearing as we speak.
Errr... as I speak...
I have been wanting to make it a dressing/guest room
since we haven't used the room for guests in several years.
Then I saw a post from DIY Showoff.
She is doing just that.
You can bet I will be watching for her progress on her lovely room.
Check out her painted subfloors.
Speaking of lovely,
have you seen the subfloor redo at Lovely Etc.?
Oh My Goodness!!!!
Go see, right now!
OK enough blathering...
I will try to check in in my spare time, snort.
Just begin, P.
