the "ROOM"

Before we get started, I will point out there is not any "stuff" about - and I do love "stuff" - you know, all the "stuff" you move around when you have to dust? Well, trust me - I have plenty, I just haven't really gotten it all out and set it about! I think I will stop here until I get back home. I still have some things to do and the "stuff" really can wait. I'm sure you will get a peak at that later.

So, here we go - let me give you guys a tour of Emsley's room.

Check out the window treatments - yes I did get them complete!! It took me much longer to iron those jokers than to actually make the pinch pleat part! I really hate the fact they are not lined, but I can do that later. That really isn't a big deal at the moment. My great-grandmother's rocker will go in front of the window {maybe} when I get it back!

Or the rocker will go to the right {under the day gowns - maybe.} Another view of the dresser. The rocker and a night stand are the same "honey" color - I hate I don't have them in the picture so that you can see it all together. The stain of the wood really works well with the fabric in the curtains.

Just a small view of the chest and bed. The lamp shades on the crystal lamps aren't finished yet - they are way to "baby pink" I need to mute them down a little. But I'm waiting till I figure out what her paintings {yes, I'm doing 2} will look like!

A better view of the bed with the bedding! Check out the "furry" stuff on the bumper. It actually looks cool in person {not so much like a muppet!}

So, check out that paint job on the bed - Spray Paint - can you believe it!?!? If anyone is taking on a project like this - I advise spray paint!!!! Do you guys remember what this thing looked like before??? Really, do you? Go back to this post and you can really remember!!! Over all, I'm so happy with the way it turned out. I've got to put some plants in here - I love plants!! Live plants!!
