Amazing what a little paint will do!

The photo above is one bedroom. I call it the Cat room. The kitties love it because they can lie in the window and bask in the sun. It is a warm and sunny room. I was so tired of this brass bed. Didn't change everything but made some improvements. Still haven't gotten Bob to relocate his desk area. Intentionally left out of photo!

I decided this would be a great room to display a lot of my mom's paintings. I can rotate them. It has a back-to-nature look. You will see the nightstand more clearly in another photo. Photo was before I got new bedding and pillows. 

This was Betsy's lime green room. That green had to go!

I replaced the twin bed with a queen. Walls are Sherwin Williams. Like the color, but not the paint. Took two coats and some touch-up. Painted the chest. The round table I left natural. I just love it. Haven't hung anything on the walls yet. Looking for just the right thing. Hope to find a headboard to paint.

This was just a dark pine stained night stand. From our set we got when we married. I saw the paint idea at Sherwin Williams and used their paint!! I think it so awesome!

This was Betsy's desk. I repainted it with Annie Sloan Chalk paint in Old White. The inside I used the ASCP in color Cricket (mixed from Old White and Provence) The chair and small chest are Provence. I used dark wax on the chair but left the chest with clear wax. 

The lamps I found in my mom's attic. A little paint, a little re-wiring and new shades from
 Lowe's and they are just so cute!

The mirror also came from my mom's. Just painted and waxed it. LOVE IT!
