I’m slowly starting to redecorate our guest room in a color scheme that flows better with the rest of our house. Believe it or not, the guest room as it stands today is almost an exact replica of my bedroom in my first college apartment. I have the same furniture, much of the same bedding and the same pictures and accessories. I only updated the wall color when we moved (knowing that I wanted to redo the rest) and added a new rug.
The first project on the long list was to trade the red on this sweet chair to BLUE! Annie Sloan’s Duck Egg blue to be exact.
Here’s the before…
Armed with two tiny paint brushes, mother and I simply painted over the red with the blue in no time at all. I then glazed the whole chair with clear wax, dabbed on dark wax over the blue parts and then buffed. I think both the before and after are equally as gorgeous. But the after will go with my plans for the room MUCH better!
And speaking of the after, here she is (along with a sneak peek of the room)…
As for that gorg little pillow sitting in the smartly painted chair, that’s something I dreamt up in the shower one morning. (I tell you what, I don’t get to shower every day but when I do they are long and fruitful.) Mother whipped up the pillow cover out of left over fabric from my den drapes (Basha Dot fabric has been discontinued.) I then attached these burlap rosettes (purchased on sale at AC Moore for $1.50 each) and further embellished with bedazzled brooches from Macy’s (a steal at $7 a piece after a one day sale and coupon.)
So excited to finish up some other projects and have a big reveal!! Stay tuned!!
