The makeover begins.....

new paint.... Sherwin Williams Agreeable gray at 75%

morning light 

inspired by this and the wreaths & other pompom creations my mom made when I was a child

artwork to be framed and changed out throughout the year....

pieces collected when i was a college student... smitten with a love of europe

which i love to this very day... but have never displayed
All parts of a surprise project which I had hoped to have completed today... a surprise to welcome home my husband after being gone for the past week.  
but alas time constraints, mental blocks, time shared with children prevailed... time well spent!
So now we will finish this project together... rearranging, adding, removing, reconfiguring!  

More often than not the journey shared is just as beautiful (or more so) as the end result!!  

I love you, babe!

    looks quite cozy indeed. love that you tried to surprise your honey. :)

  2. Very nice :) I like the gray! It'll be nice to incorporate your pictures you've had for so long. Memories are so sweet. :)
    Thanks for your comment on my chairs...I love how they turned out. I was scared to death I was going to mess them up when I started on them, but was tickled i didn't mess em up! :) The hardest part of the whole process was taking out the bajillion staples when I removed the old fabric! I think that's always the hardest part. :)
    Have a great week my friend!
    missy :)

  3. The gray is so pretty and it looks like your bedroom is coming together nicely! I hope that this New Year brings you and your sweet family an abundance of God's blessings!!

  4. The bedroom is so important!!!! I love that lamp and the grey is so pretty!

    1. Jennifer,

      Thank you so very much for dropping by! I have to admit taking the Creative Made Home course is probably some of the best spent money to date.... it really gave me that gentle nudge that was needed to take the plunge so to speak!! Have a wonderful day!

  5. Im drooling over that lamp!
