Play a Little ~ Work a Little ~ Phase 11

It seems like I had a paint brush attached to my hand this whole weekend. 

It all started Thursday afternoon, when I found this cute little handmade shelf at my fav consignment shop. 

It really isn't that cute the way it is, but I could see beyond that.  You know I am a sucker for anything wood and handmade is a bonus... score for $20.00....

the before...

I then had to shoot over to Rona for a piece of wood for another project, which just
happens to be across the street... can't go in without stopping by the oops counter... it was calling my name...

I found this pretty paint...$5.00...

I knew immediately where it was going to be used.  

this is for Mya's corner...


After two days of painting the shelf , it was time to get moving onto the next project.   
This one is for Gramma's corner. 

remember the vanity huddled in the ugly room...

It is now this perfectly sized desk... I added the top and a piece in the middle and gave it a fresh coat of white paint, I am loving it... 

Took a break from painting and hung the curtains I found on Ebay... I truly love Priscilla curtains... I have had them in every house I have ever lived.  There is just something so soft and feminine about them. 

The blank frame on the wall is going to be a chalkboard... I will pick up the wood for that tomorrow. 

The carpet salesman came Friday to price out new carpeting for the room, the other two bedrooms and hallway.  Hopefully that will be done this coming Friday.  It really puts you at a standstill when there is no carpet on the floor. As you can see, I went ahead and decorated anyway.  I couldn't wait until next week, I wanted to see it done now. 

 Well that is the end of Phase 11... stay tuned for the finale next week.  Keep you toes and fingers crossed it all goes according to plan.   Back to work for another rest tomorrow... so I can store up some energy for next weekend. 

So what do you think? 

Thanks for popping in...

Hugs, Deb

That shelf is wonderful! I love the way you painted it. I always wanted to make something like that when my girls were little. I think it will be a big hit in Mya's corner.

Everything is just wonderful! Mya is a lucky girl to have a gramma like you and you're a lucky gramma to have such talent! I'll be you are pooped. But I know what you mean by not being able to wait before decorating. Great job!

Great job on the vanity/desk. I'm so happy you're finally getting to this room. Doesn't it feel great?
Hoping it all comes out as planned!
