Before Decorating and After Decorating........Sharing at several Linky Parties.
In the beginning- the carpet could just about turn your stomach, and some of it was on the walls as well.
Empty rooms can be deceiving. So I measured and taped off the amount of space needed for a king size bed and a walk-in closet (in the foreground).
Old closet removed. Thanks to Mr. G. He also replaced the molding around the old closet casing.
I did the painting with "oops" paint.
So it cost less than $10 to paint this room. btw, the green/brown color is Martha Stuart Paint.
I notice now, it's hard to find "oops" paint. Either folks have caught on or it's not being sold?
The bed (below) fit just like the tape said it would.
Found a shutter @ Peddler's Mall with a couple of slats missing.
Tried weaving fabric, lived with it about a month and took it out.
Right now, it's just plain and simple.
I have a fire place mantel that I picked up @ a yard sale last year for $5 (I think). It's waiting in the garage for me to decide how I want to finish it, or leave it as is and most importantly, how to hang it.
