Finally, Phase One Completed!

Well, it's been a while getting here but I have finally finished. It took several week ends but
I think it was worth all the work! Walls painted, woodwork done and wall paper completed.

I tried to take lots of different views. So enjoy!



The lamps on the bedside tables belonged to my grandmother. I rewired them and put new lamps shades that I covered with the lace from my curtains. I got this lace from my Mom, she bought it all at a mill ends place for $5.00 a yard. It is an embroidered lace on net.


The dressform I bought at a garage sale. The old wash stand I bought at an antique store for just $65.00, I have seen them for several hundred dollars.




The armoire was pine and it just didn't fit into the decor but it houses my TV and a few other things. It's not quite finished (blue tape still on hardware). I needed to bring the pink to this side of the room, too, so I papered the front of it with leftover wallpaper. I love the way it looks.



I hope you enjoyed the tour.
Next project: paper the bathroom and dressing area with the companion paper.
Stay tuned for the phase!

Hi Sandy,
Thanks for the post and your room looks looooooovely! Can't wait to see more of your journey. I would love to know the make and number for the wallpaper I just need some to finish the inside of a cabinet similiar to yours. It's oh so pretty. Hope you get that rain soon! Texas girls gotta stick together!!Charlsey

The paper is from the Laura Ashley book. I think it is Laura Ashley Home. You may have to search several websites as some say it is discontinued. I had to wait over a month to get it as it was back ordered. It comes with one color with a chocolate brown background which is outstanding with the pink roses. I'm at work now so I think it is Discount Wallpaper.com where I got it. Decorate Today didn't have it last time I looked. Hope this helps!

My Dear Miss Sandy, I truly believe you should post some of your pics on HGTV's rate my space. You've done a beautiful job between paint/wallpaper/and wood trim... let alone all the rest of the decorating you've done with beautiful pieces. Give it some serious thought.

Hugs, Penny Sue

I have gotten behind on blog reading. Today I am catching up on yours. I just love how your bedroom turned out. So pretty with lots of detail. Looks wonderful and inviting. I have never stayed in a Bed and Breakfast place before, but I bet your room would top even the best ones. Congrats on a job well done!
