Red Hot Powder Room

Hello all, it's that time again. Today, I  have a red hot powder room to share with you this week.  So lets get started......




This is how the powder room looked before the makeover. I wanted new wallpaper but there was no room in the budget. So I made my own.(wallpaper) I took brown packaging paper and tore it into large pieces. Then I  applied wallpaper paste to one side of the paper,and began applying it to the walls and the ceiling. This process took about two hours. Then I primed and painted the room.
 
Hello somebody! I painted this room a bold shade of red. Opera House Red by Behr to be exact. If you're thinking about using a saturated color, the powder room would be a great place to experiment.

 


Here are two of my favorite quotes. I get to read them every time I enter the powder room. Look closely and you'll see how overlapping the paper gives it a leather look.



The counter top was painted to coordinate with the mirror. First, a gold base coat was applied. Next, antique bronze was used to paint the squiggly lines. Then, several coats of polycrylic was applied to protect the surface. Not to shabby huh?




During the holidays the wire basket is filled with Christmas ornaments. But in a few short weeks it will be overflowing with orchids and greenery. I can't wait! The ceramic container is one of my favorite accessories. I think every room needs a little animal print.



The wicker basket is used to store extra toiletries and supplies.

 

This corner needed a little something, so I added the blue and white vase. Pretty pretty pretty. Enjoy the rest of the pics!






 
 

 This powder room went from drab to red hot and dramatic and I love it! 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
