You guys, we're on a serious countdown and I'm rapidly approaching panic mode! I'm constantly debating whether or not I'm going to be able to finish. Why oh why did I make such an ambitious to-do list, full of so many DIYs?
If you're just jumping in, I'm working on my Master Bedroom that we actually painted over two years ago, and I've been "planning" the rest of the makeover ever since. I'm so grateful to Linda from Calling It Home for spear-heading this challenge, and encouraging us to get something done, within an obviously much-needed time frame. Feel free to look back and catch up on Week 1, Week 2, and Week 3.
This was furniture week! It's been a rainy forecast, but I knew Monday would be nice, so I scrambled to set up the paint shop in the back yard.
Prep ended up taking most of the day, and thankfully the Lord blessed with another beautiful day on Tuesday so I could finish up before the rain came. I trimmed out the fireplace and got it all painted...
Here's a look at the base that my Dad built for it to sit on so it will be a bit taller and more substantial in the room. It's tiny without it! Pretty straightforward, but of course it's perfect and he filled every nail hole. ;)
We think the entire piece turned out so well. With each project that gets checked off the list, I just keep thinking "What took me so long to get that done???"
The nightstands (see the before here) got painted also. I posted an in-process pic on Instagram to document the first time I've ever painted a piece of furniture white. Can you believe it?
I still need to attach the hardware, and will be using these beauties from D. Lawless Hardware. I've loved these since the first time I saw them and was waiting for the perfect project to use them on. That scalloped detail makes me swoon!
I can't wait to tell you more about this makeover in the next few weeks, there's one aspect of it that I'm particularly proud of... stay tuned!
The doors that lead to the bathroom were removed and I got them all sanded down (I painted them black a while back, but with this design decided to take them back to white.) I'm working on a special trim detail for them, so they're still in progress. Here's a sneak peek:
The last project in the works for now is the headboard. We've gathered the supplies and I decided on the shape and size, but that's as far as we are. Can't believe I'm posting this, but I tried it out for size and I'll share with you just so you have an idea. Those pillows are Euro size, so the headboard will be tall- around 6 feet. (Please don't think my home is always perfect like you usually see in photos like my Spring Home Tour. This is real life, especially when I'm in project mode... we live here... and usually just outside the camera frame things are definitely different than they appear in the photo!)
I'm really undecided on what kind of art to do on that wall. I have a pair of the mirrors that you see in the pic. Do I...
OK, about that list...
