Here’s what I started with. Old wood blinds that were so disgusting and dirty. An outdated valance that had definitely seen better days. And a funky novelty fruit and vegetable clock. How did I let things get so dated looking. You can read about the planning and progress of this transformation HERE.
As you can see the 2 inch wood blinds are gone replaced with the new bamboo shades. The shades will be so much easier to clean and give the room a lighter, airier feeling. I didn’t get any privacy backing on the blinds and although you can see out, you can’t see in through them.
It’s hard to photograph the blinds and see the true color of the blinds. The blinds are all the same color “Monarch” and the blind on the right is the best color representation. The Elm tree outside makes middle blind photography greenish.
The pressed fern prints that I made years ago are now replaced with new hand lettered prints by Craft Street Design. One says “Let it Be” and the other says “Enjoy every moment”. Words to live by.
Aren’t they fantastic. And I’m all about beautiful packaging and my prints came wrapped in cello with these hand lettered tags and a sweet note. She has an amazing assortment of designs and you can check them out at Craft Street Design.
I’m really happy with the white cotton embroidered sheer panels. I love how they add a softness to the bamboo.
I love the color of Golden delicious apples so I filled this blue & white oversized bowl to bring color to the table and to celebrate the room makeover.
And it’s hard to resist fresh flowers this time of year. White Stock and green poms poms aren't expensive at all and make a big impact.
One more picture of the entire room because I’m so happy I’m finished and now get to enjoy the room. Now on to the next project.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
