I was trying to stay focused on the guest bedroom, but the gOOd change of weather derailed me.
Good weather –pressure wash decks, furniture, cushions, and finally get to plant window boxes and urns. Rent a Rug Doctor to clean carpets, area rugs, refresh furniture, even the car interiors.
Bad weather –resume puttying and painting (and sore fingers), hang wallpaper, restore room so mom can get back to her own computer…..
Since it’s raining –again– thought I’d show you some of the room’s progress!
I’ll be lowering the drapery rod to show a new, simpler window header! My mom really likes corner blocks, I don’t, but there were so many miter cuts -and old, out-of-square walls— I was grateful for the break!
Here’s a detail of the miters around the new window header–
—and a closer view of the damask wallpaper, that I love-love-love!
Need your help, ladies!
I’m trying to persuade mom to let me paint this secretary, and add the same wallpaper to its back—she’s not sold.
Please comment and tell her what you think!
The one below is an antique –the one she really likes– and is actually her desk!
I know she’ll never let me touch the antique, but the other is a reproduction that houses her computer!
The chair beside her antique secretary
was found at one of the St Vinnie’s half-price sales— $5.
Just needed cleaning!
The chair below with the desk/vanity in the alcove is from the flea market,
isn’t it just perfect?!
I’ll have pictures of the beautiful outdoors -once it’s all finished!
