Makeover In Progress~~The Home Stretch

Excitement abounds...
planning, anticipation, completion,
the end is in sight!

My Valentine's gift from Mr B
installing the bead board,
~ My inspiration piece~
This lovely mirror
Rusty tin ceiling tile mounted in a wood frame

Good bye teal wallpaper
Welcome vintage bead board
Good bye bold ivy border
Welcome soft whimsical hand painted border
I wanted a softer look so I outlined
all the outside edges (leaves)  with  light gray.
One more trip around the room with my tiny brush,
Yes, I must have been out of my mind again!

 Hugs to all my dear bloggers,
your suggestions and comments
 were greatly appreciated.
You said: Cover up the wallpaper--cover up the border
What started out to be a small makeover
quickly turned into a major turnover, upside down, rip up
cover up task... I can truly say
"I Like It"
Now the fun part begins...decorating,
So many ideas floating in my head,
hope my little room has enough space.
Enough space where
Little girls will grow into young lady's.


  1. Can't wait to see how you decorate :) I am looking forward to the big move and decorating all over again. Maybe friends and family will come to visit more often and notice all the decorating we do next time. Your room is looking good :)
