Bedroom Update Part 2

If you missed “Part 1” and you want to see what I started with read it here.

So we are 3 weekends into this and I pretty thrilled with the progress of Brie’s new bedroom…

As you can see we got the walls painted the (Farrow & Ball Pavilion Grey)… I cannot adequately explain how over the moon I am about this color! Just the perfect shade of grey with just the tiniest hint of blue… I seriously want to paint most of the house this color now Thinking smile

I updated these “gross old crusty doors” (what Brie called them) and now she LOVES them! I will write a how to post on them soon… we also hung this gorgeous vintage brass and crystal chandelier… I call it the Cinderella chandelier because it looks like the pumpkin carriage she took to the ball…

The words I used are my own and personify my youngest… hopefully she will keep these for a long time… and of course what room is complete without a monogram Winking smile

We’ve installed the new lighting for her closet… lots of light that I can adjust direction on as necessary… love the feel that it gives to the closet! I also stenciled a huge Lotus flower stencil on that wall… what a pain that was… note to self… use large stencils on floors not walls!

We also painted the bathroom, removed the builder’s grade mirror and replaced it with one I found at Hobby Lobby… I think it will just be temporary though as I found a vintage one for the other vanity and I just love the look… so I‘m on the hunt for another vintage mirror for here…

My SAH (super awesome hubby) added a new ceiling receptacle so we could add this chandelier to the dressing area space… tons of light now! We had this chandelier in her old room (it’s from Land of Nod) but it was pink and green… so I sprayed it flat white and replaced the clear glass swag with blue ones and added the blue glass drops… it’s like a new chandelier now!

The drywall guys came today… YAY! So work should be able to continue on this weekend…

We still have a hand full of things to get done but we are hoping to get it all done before Thanksgiving!

Thanks for stopping by…

Until next time!

About Susan @ Uniquely Yours or Mine

Hi, my name is Susan and I’m a furniture hoarder… whew, now that I have said that I feel so much better! Anyway, I started this whole furniture refinishing and blogging business in 2011 and I have LOVED every minute of it! It’s not “easy” by any means but it allows me to utilize my creative side and meet lots of wonderful people… it is seriously my dream occupation! I have been refinishing furniture for myself for over 20 years but never gave any thought to doing this for others until my kids had gotten to the point that they didn’t need me as much… sad but true! So now I’m a stay at home mom and wife who has decided that fixing up and painting furniture is so much more rewarding than vacuuming and grocery shopping… my house is never quite as clean as I would like for it to be and there is furniture everywhere… but I couldn’t be happier! I hope you can come along on this journey with me!
