It shocks me to say this….but we have been friends for 10 years now….that is how long I have been blogging!  Thank you for reading and commenting.  Thank you for listening when things have been great and not so great……

I also want to say that I appreciate every sweet comment about my brother in law.  Cancer touches so many of our lives….and I heard from a lot of you about your own stories.  

Bless you all.

Yes the last 6 months have been a struggle but like I always say….nobody said life was fair.  So….you just keep pushing forward and that is what I am trying to do.

OK….I promised we would get back to decorating and we are.  A few post back I blogged about a project [see it here] that I got involved with through a friend.  We were going to re-use many things she already had.

I have a few updates for you today…..nobody loves a before and after better than me:)

Let’s review….the wallpaper, the fabrics….the curtain rods [before] and the trim.

You ready…..

Remember there were 2 bedside chest that needed a little updating…..So much better…

This one needed a dark top to match the other side….

It looks so much better!

The one above had a greenish tone to it so he fixed that and added a little gold to the hardware!

We wanted to glam up the doors a little….

He also did a little something to the hardware!

She found an oval ottoman at a consignment store….

It received some gorgeous Schumacher cut velvet fabric….

She is ready for her closeup now!

Re-using this chair from the living room….

He touched up the existing curtain hardware.  Traverse rods would have been very expensive to replace and I am not mad at how they look now!!

Again some beautiful Schumacher wool fabric with some pretty trim!

The curtains frame the windows so nicely don’t cha think?

The ceiling has just a hint of pink….

OK are you ready for the wallpaper?  

Game changer!

This is the sitting area and it looks like a jewel box now!

The beautiful Charles Stewart Bromley sofa covered in a pretty Schumacher velvet!

It’s not all styled up yet but here ya go…..

I. Am. Obsessed. With. This. Paper.

I love how moody this space is…..

Still waiting for the bed and pillows!

OK….Monday is the day of my mediation.  To say I am a ball of nerves is an understatement.  Whew….she said we could be there 6-8 hours….I think I would rather have a colonoscopy and a root canal on the same day.  Gah.

Every time I think about it I get the same feeling in my stomach as you get when the roller coaster gets to the top and then starts barreling down to the bottom…..

OK….enough whining!

PSA…..I found out that you can schedule a scope when you have a colonoscopy!  Check out ecan.org
