I wanted my one hundredth post to be special so it took me some time to get to the point that I had the room completed enough to share. It is still a work in progress but I couldn't contain myself any longer.
We are not completely through with the painting but getting close. Probably in a couple of more days it will finally be done. Bead board is not easy to paint. It requires getting into the grooves and that requires a lot more energy than just rolling it on. Those of you who have painted it know what I mean.
As luck would have it, my next door neighbor was having a moving sale a few weeks ago and had a queen size sleeper sofa that he was not taking with him. I purchased it from him for $50.00 and moved into my room. I ordered a slipcover for it . I have loved the slipcovers from Spring Gard'n for a long time and finally had the perfect sofa for one of her wonderful slipcovers. I added some
pink check and pink rose pillows that I had made to complete the look.
I brought my old coffee table and drop leaf table back from my Mom's garage and proceeded to paint them white. The tool tray on the coffee table is from my favorite craft/antique mall. It doesn't look to bad in the red. What do you think??
In the next few posts I'll share other parts of the room with you. I'm still trying to decide on curtains . I am using some pretty sheers that I had in a previous house. I have more of the Ralph Lauren pink rose fabric that I am thinking of making valances for the windows. Any suggestions???
