Monday Make-Over's

Monday Make-Over's
It's that time of year when the weather is warming up, the snow is gone, the garage sales are beginning, and I am itching to get out for some re-sale shopping and country auctions. Warmer weather is also the time for some messy make-over jobs that are better done out of doors. My big plan was to start posting a new make-over every Monday. Then, don't ya know, the batteries in the camera needed a re-charge and I couldn't find the battery charger. Hard to post a make-over post with no pics. Luckily I found it the charger while cleaning some drawers this week and now I am back on track. So, this week I am sharing my bedroom make-over.

We have been in this house for 3 years now. Before we moved in hubby promised we could take out an inconvenient bedroom window. So, I have been waiting and waiting for that window to go away before I stenciled. I have finally given up and found a new solution to work around that window.

"Before Pictures"

"After Picture's"
The bedroom make-over also includes a gorgeous new Drexel Heritage 4 poster rice bed from Craig's List for $350 and I got them to throw in the night stand for free.

As for that window that has been holding up the stenciling? It is right behind the left side of the headboard - out of sight. I bought new window treatments for the other window but not for this one since I "believed" it was going to be gone soon. Well, that will be another Monday, hopefully sooner than later. A cliff-hanger to be answered by summer's end - finger's crossed.

Beautiful stencil job! Ahhh...only 3 years? Consider yourself blessed....I've been here 23+ and have yet to manage to redo a room other than my son's (and that's ready for another!) Smiles & Hugs, Robin

Thanks ladies! I have done a lot of stenciling in the past. Did it for a little extra income as a stay at home mom. Gotta say though, my knees were a lot younger for climbing on and off the step stool and I didn't have burcitis and tennis elbow, LOL. This aging thing ain't easy! Definately better than the alternative though. :o)
