New Girl...New Room...A Makeover Story!

      Hello friends and welcome back to my nest. If you are new here, I am happy to meet you and there is always room for more friends.
So....I got an e-mail from my sister Joanne, who just visited me, and she wanted to know if I would help my niece Ashleigh restyle her bedroom. 

While Joanne was here she got to see all the painted furniture that I have been working on.
When she returned home, her daughter told her of her desire to make over her bedroom in a shabby cottage design.
To which my sister replied.."that's what Aunt Janet does!!!!"
Cue the back and forth texting of ideas and inspiration rooms!

Of all the rooms I e-mailed to her, this is the room that she sees in her mind when she envisions her dream room.
This made me very happy because it is my personal favorite of all the photos I sent.
Isn't it darling?
Ashleigh has a very nice bedroom set that I will be blessing with some Annie Sloan chalk paint.
I will be searching the thrift shops for some chunky frames to paint and maybe distress and gild.
A nice chalk painted side table lamp and some nice extras.
Definitely some pretty cabbage rose fabric also.
Yeah...this is going to be so much FUN!
I will be blogging about the whole process, so do keep in touch.
PS.....Be sure to come back next week for a fabulous Fabric GIVEAWAY!!!
You won't want to miss this one.

Wishing you blue skies

Until next kind and stay creative
