The power of paint and using what you have.

This is the room I made for my Grandchildren.

The bed heads were very old so I painted them the same shade as the walls but in Oil based satin paint, they blend but still look good.
I recovered chairs and made cushions.
 I kept the drapes plain, white linen, we have big views so things need to be simple.

 The bed linen is mail order, white with an embossed pattern and pale blue micro fiber blankets, all wash well.

 Other furniture got painted too, its looks white but I always use just a  hint of cream.

Before I painted the headboards I glued on rubber molding, cost just a few dollars but makes big dollar impact.

I embroidered these fun cushions and it was finished.

I love blue and white, it suits seaside homes and have tried to have some blue and also green in most rooms.

Whats there to say, I have wanted to make this for a while.

I saw them being made about a year ago at a craft day and thought how cute, so finally here is mine.

 I just gave him to my Grand daughter at her Dedication this morning, he will never look this good again, but will be well dribbled on.   Bless her.

Another one.

Wax paper flowers

 Having Pinned this idea from I was inspired to try it out, very easy and so lovely.

So simple

Just placed on a white linen runner

The wax catches the light, they look candle like

We were having a few friends over for diner, I had no fresh flowers, so out came my wax paper ones.
 They looked great.
