HELLO....HELLO....HELLO (in tune to the three stooges...remember them?  Hilarious comedy!)  So HELLO, how are you all today?  Great, I hope!

Okay, so I know I told you all the other day that I would show you the reveal of sis's room in the next month or so.  Well...I still have a ton of unfinished projects to do in that room and it will probably take way longer than a month to complete them all so....I decided that I would show you the room thus far.  Sound good?  Yes, yes it does.  So here goes...

As you can tell, I still have tons of unfinished business in here.  I will be reupholstering the chair as soon as I find the right fabric.  I am looking for art and accessories for that area of the room too.  I am still undecided on whether or not I want to just paint the bed or upholster it...and then there's the little matter of what color.  I tell ya...decisions, decisions.  They can be so hard sometimes.

I have foiled a small chest of drawers seen in the left hand corner of the pic below...When I say "foiled" that's exactly what it means....I mod podged household aluminum foil onto a plain old, nothing special chest of drawers.  Applied a little black craft paint to distress (or age it) and then finished with a top coat of mod podge to preserve and protect the finish.  I will show you close up, more detailed pics of that later.

I still have not purchased new knobs for it yet though.  The ones I want are about $5 ea. so it may be a while before I get them seeing as how I need 6 total.  I have yet to foil the bookcase and I am looking for different lamps.  I spray painted some mix matched thrift store lamps orange for now, but I am not sure that I am liking how they turned out.  Not sure what I am going to do there yet.

I have moved the metal medallion since taking these pics and will show you where to later.  For now that corner of the room is pretty much "blech".  Like I said I need to reupholster the chair and decide on art and accessories for that part of the room.

Looking back toward the door, you can see the painted lingerie chest.  That area has been changed up a bit since taking these pics and I hope to show you that soon.   There is still a lot to do but so far I am really liking this room.  More importantly, Sis is loving it and that makes me happy.

See you soon with more updates.  Until then...have a fantastic Jesus filled my old pastor would say.

  6. More power to you, your blog is awesome!

  7. Hi Sheila, I came across your comment about the pond boat and saw that you were just down the road from me in MO, and that led me to your blog!
    Enjoyed reading, you sound so energetic and quarky!
    Love your redo of "sis's" room.... except I have to agree, not crazy about the orange lamps. Have you seen the spraypaints that look like hammered metal? I think a charcoal or bronze color would be fabulous! There are several colors to choose black, gey, silver, etc. that have that metal finish to it. I think you would like it!!
    I have even sprayed shoeboxes with it and it looks great stacked on a shelf!

    I love the picture above the bed, too; but think it would be a really spectacular look if you painted the frame dark (maybe even with the hammered look to go with the lamps)
    Yellow/gold is a bit of a jarring color tone with the grey walls and black scroll above it. It'd be really striking with a black frame and look like part of the scroll which would make it appear as a larger piece above the bed.
    The bed is wonderful, btw! I wouldn't do a thing to it! And the foil idea on the dresser is fabulous!! Great job!


I LOVE hearing from you...please leave me a comment!
