It's not often that I get the chance to work on projects for me.
But recently, I've focused on the guest bedrooms.
Tho' I failed the white-room challenge by using brown accents,
it was good to have the room put back together
before our guests arrived.
I am delighted by the cornices
that Sherry made for me.
What a special friend she is
to offer me her time and her talent.
Everything her hand touches is magic!
The cornices were upholstered with a dropcloth,
and the swags were cut from some drapery panels
I purchased from Ballard Designs
but never used.
|And so we are ready for guests!|
a second guest room got a facelift, too.
The accent wall is painted --
I adapted the design from a piece of wallpaper
that caught my eye.
There is something about oversized patterns
that appeals to me.
Again, Sherry to the rescue!
She made drapery panels using another painter's dropcloth
adding a border of checked fabric.
Didn't they turn out nicely!
When the room was completely done,
I stepped back to admire and looked up......
The ceiling begged for color.
(why didn't I think of this sooner??)
And the perfect choice was Crystaline
from Benjamin Moore (AF485).
I guess there's only one thing to say:
