Was a quick weekend and didn’t get a whole lot accomplished. I have been slowly working on redecorating the master bedroom and I think I have new fabrics and color scheme picked out. I’ve been living with the current colors for the last seven years and I need something new and fresh.
The good thing is that it matches the loveseat that I have, so I don’t have to replace any pieces of furniture. I won’t be able to change the arrangement of the furniture, but am planning on replacing the carpet and painting the walls a deep chocolate brown and having one accent wall using the turquoise. I might get really ambitious, thinking about painting a very large paisley shape on the accent wall. I dunno.
I’ve already picked up a couple of pieces from estates sales, a mirror that I’ve already refinished and a rocking chair that I am going to use the same dark brown finish and then reupholster. I’m actually getting kind of excited now that I have the color scheme picked out. Just a matter of getting things moving. I think the hardest part will be having the carpet installed, means all the furniture will have to be moved out of the room… and I have some serious huge pieces in there.
Here is the mirror that I finished today, it cost $5 at the estate sale and I used a can of spray paint ($3.99):
The other project completed today was something I was just goofing around with and was a suggestion from the Kid. He has been hanging onto a Monster energy drink can because it was ‘cool’. So I found a design for a battery online and used it as a design. A little spray paint and some hand painting with a paint pen (love the Elmer’s Painter pens) and viola!, here it is:
So, other than spending way too many hours on Pinterest.com and catching up on missed episodes of “Saving Grace”, that’s all I finished of my crafting projects. Just have too much going on, I guess.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting, y’all!
