Grey and white big girl bed

What happened to the summer days where I used to lounge around the pool, flirt with boys and only worry about getting a sunburn?  They're long gone I tell you, looooong gone.
 Gone are the days of sleeping in until 11, 80's movies on repeat and having no where to be.

This Summer has been a bit challenging, but also so much fun.  Having three small children to entertain all day every day, has been such a drastic change from my earlier years as a free agent.


Anywho, enough about me missing my summer days as a teen, I have a new furniture reveal for you!

I've been sitting on this one for awhile, but there's nothing like a visit with some blog buddies to inspire me to get back in touch with my creativity.



This is the big girl bed I painted for my middle daughter.  I can't seem to find the before picture, but it was a dark brown wood stain.


I used my favorite grey paint called stormy weather by Valspar.  And the trim is white dove by Benjamin Moore.




Thanks for stopping by!

2014 Decorators' Showhouse

I'm dropping in today to share some photos with you of the Atlanta Decorators Show house and Gardens show I was invited to again this year.  It's being held at the Palazzo Rosa House in Buckhead and it will be open until May 18th.

I've never been busier in my life, this is a season in time where I sometimes don't even know what day it is.  But I wouldn't change it for anything in the world.

I plan to start picking up the furniture painting thing again really soon.  I need a little something in my life that's just for me right now, also we could use the extra moolah.


All right, now for some beautiful eye candy.







This was my favorite room in the house.


 





This dining room was by Melanie Turner, one of my faves.


Jimmy Stanton, another designer I love.




So many beautiful settees! 




I thought the idea for these curtains here was a unique idea.


This would be my spot.








Mirrored wall, can you spot Rhoda?


Cool, eclectic hallway.

For some reason I didn't get a good shot of the kitchen, but these were in the window.
I hope you enjoyed that, and if you live in the Atlanta area, I highly recommend you take a a day to go through the house.  It's really fun!

Baby

I feel like I've been taken by a tornado, spun around a few hundred times and spit back out somewhere over in Alabama. 


Our sweet baby boy arrived about five weeks ago, and life has never been the same.  We finally got his room together about two weeks after he arrived.


We decided to make it a nursery/guest bedroom.  


 I sewed the bumper with some classic grey and white striped fabric.
The skirt is a dark grey linen.


I got this great idea for the pictures above his crib from surfing around on Etsy.


I used and old Encyclopaedia for the paper, and images I found online.
Fixed them up a bit in photo shop, and created a one of a kind piece of art.


Next up, big girl bed re-do for daughter #2.
