Another little peak at the Master Bedroom for you! This room has seen more changes over the last five and a half years than a dressing room at Victoria's Secret. I change it a least a couple of times a year because I am easily bored.
|A sample pot from HD in "Banana Pepper" was just the right color and more than enough paint -- about $3!|

For the last few months, I have been "working" -- and I do use the term rather loosely -- on our bedroom. We painted the walls bright white, then switched around some furniture and accessories from around the house. We also changed the window treatments. I have been painting things as the spirit moves me, which is not non-stop. Apparently I am no longer easily moved by the spirit!
I found this mirror one day over at the Hoover Home Goods store. Wearing a big bold Drexel label, it had great presence but a lousy finish -- too factory slick and fake distressed. It looks heavy but is actually very lightweight, being molded something-or-other, not wood.
Conveniently, it was exactly the same width as this little C & B desk which got a pretty half-hearted paint job with a $1 bottle of craft paint a few years ago. I found some paint at HD which was exactly the color I wanted -- Chartreuse -- and repainted both pieces the same, followed by some antiquing glaze. Then I brushed on some gold gilding wax here and there. The little PB Louis-style chair came out of the bathroom to join the pair. All in all, a nice little trio, don't you think?
A moratorium on further work is now in place till after the Holidays! I will string you along for a little while longer, and give you a look at some of the other changes. Several more pieces will be undergoing changes, so you will have to check in to see what's what. Eventually, you'll get the big picture.
