Spare Room Project – Chair Revamp

Hi all or as my son would say since he’s spent the past 2 years in Orlando, Hi y’all! 🙂  I’m happy to share another project is complete for my guest/craft/reading/my room project.

For a quick reminder, my hubby’s Tommy Bahama shirt became my inspiration.

Shirt on Door-1 

A few weekends ago my neighbor gal was going to take a couple of old kitchen chairs to the Goodwill.  I said not only No but No No No!  I talked her in to the two of us spending a gal afternoon doing the DIY thing.  We primed, sanded and sprayed.  Rust Oleum, you are my hero!  My neighbor in crime painter her chair a moss green and I chose the aqua/turquoise color.

I still need to decide on a chair cushion but I gotta tell ya, it looks fab next to my white desk and bright yellow walls.

I’m getting excited to share the entire room, promise!  Soon, it will be soon.

Spare Room Project – Wall Accessories

I touched up the walls last night in the spare/guest/craft/my room but decided I would also paint the switch plates so waiting for those to dry.  For paint details, see  yesterdays post.

I’ve been contemplating what to hang on the walls.  I know whatever it is it needs to be personal to me and not some random piece. I am going through my picture stash for my favorites.  I also have garnered some ideas from Pinterest. That said, here are some of my thoughts.  It will take awhile to get it all done.  Oh and by the way, I really don’t know if I will incorporate all of this, but I really like all these ideas…

I love buttons.  Adorable, right?

The possibilities are endless when it comes to framing scrapbook paper.

 

Love, love, love this!

I know it’s not a wall item, but had to throw this great idea for a lampshade in ’cause it’s so dang cute.  I can just see it in the colors I’ve picked.

Another cute use for a frame.  Did I mention how long I’ve been picking up frames and how many are in my closet?

I love birds and I am totally, totally, totally in love with this dresser.  I have to think about this one.  I have a white dresser.  There’s got to be a stencil out there somewhere…..

So many ideas!  My brain hurts!  I will have to think about this in a bit.  What do you think?

Color Inspiration

Color Inspiration

Have you ever thought about where your color inspiration comes from?  Experts say to think about things you like to do such as gardening, the beach, hiking, and draw your decorating colors from there.  Not so long ago I thought of another way to draw color inspiration.  Can you guess from where?

or what about this one?

Can you figure it out yet?  Do you know where this color inspiration is coming from?  What about this one?

Last chance…this one should help you figure it out as it’s not the best picture…..

If you still haven’t figured it out.  Guess what?  All these pictures are of KLEENEX BOXES.  Next time you’re at the store take a little bit more time in the paper aisle and really see kleenex boxes as color inspiration for a room in your house.

Have a good day!
