Here are a few photos of mine to get the inspiration going, I guess. This one here on the left is a before shot of my Reagans room. It had horrible "off the rack" home depot wallpaper with an ungodly boarder. Had to go-- Here on the right is the-after- simple yellow walls, creamy enamel paint trim and a sweet little vintage iron bed. LOVE IT!! What do ya think?
Here is a lovely "before" photo of mine and BobVillas room. Do not you adore the vintage wallpaper and lovely green tape boarder?(heavy sarcasm, here) I only am sorry I didnt get a great photo of the fixture. It was just so bad.. A few days of peeling wallpaper, filling in cracks, taking out the lovely steele blue carpet, (only to reveal gorgeous preserved hardwood floors)-thank you previous owners-
and loads and loads of my favorite "coffee with cream" color paint, and Voila, the love nest of mr and mrs Villa...
Now here is the so sorry state of the living room-sans 3 different heavy layers of drapery. Whats up with that, this sheer we just left on so no peepers could see all our tools, I am definately NOT a drapery person, although I can be talked into anything at least once, especially if it looks good.. More pink paint, yes fleshy pink, also some lovely fleshy pink carpeting to go with it..egads!!!
I really should take more photos of the living room, but I believe there are some, elsewhere in my blog under home sweet home. Anyway.. If anyones interested in before and afters, here you go. Off to get Finn from preschool.Then to home depot for stuff for the beach cottage.. Have a great day
Your buddy here in Washington State, where yes-- the big yellow orb is actually out!!! The light, it burns!!!!
