Instead of buying new furniture I decided to paint the old stuff. We sanded and then primed...
My Mom is a real trooper. She painted all the green for me while I painted the furniture white. When we were fixing up our current home she came to help. We had to paint all the walls and ceilings. The day before we started she fell while jumping rope with Manga Dork. She broke her arm. Against my wishes, she still painted with one hand! She is a true workaholic.
Here are our results...We still need to put some things on the wall. She is wanting a Twilight poster at the end of her bed in a black poster frame. We haven't figured out the rest yet.
She also scored a new TV and DVD/VCR combo. Thank you Dr. Hubby for being such a good sport! LOL!
The bedding is from JCPenney's catalog. The zebra throw is from TJMaxx. We want to add a green pillow to the bed, but we haven't found one we like yet.
I can't quit looking at it as I pass by. I am slowly adding her stuff. She moves in tonite. We waited because of the paint smell.
Mechelle joined me in project better this week. Go see which of the 3 choices she completed...
This week I challenge you to...
Clean out your junk drawer!
