A Little Peek of WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE YOU DOING ANNETTE?

Have you ever just been flat stumped at a project? Redoing it and redoing it time and time again?  For some reason when we moved into this house I was stumped.  A flat mental block about what to do with every room.  Still working on that problem.   Our master bedroom, this is at least the third time I am redoing it in almost 5 years.  Yes and I am thinking what in the world is going on?     I know I have painted it three times and it is not a small room and has giant ceilings.  I think me and the 8 foot ladder are way past and beyond first name basis.  It sees me coming and thinks, if ladders think-  NO NO NO not again and she drags me and doesn't lift me.  But I do confess Eldon will help me on the ladder moving as it is so heavy. 

This little jaunt on the redoing of the master is almost finished.  ALMOST !!!!!  So I thought I would give you little peeks at it.  One or two great things, I found the comforter on sale!!!!! Yes at DILLARDS for $79.  AND the loveseat cover was on sale at IKEA on line for-wait for it----- $39.  Now in my book that was hitting a home run.  

Still have some things to do to finish it up but will tease you a bit with some peeks.  Not sure about over the bed pics though, I want something I painted but right now this retired lady just doesn't have time, so I may run out to Garden Ridge and see what kind of fun things they have for right now.   Maybe.


Now this oriental rug was in the dining area but I think it needed to go in the master room.  I still have one red wall and this rug  on the floor just makes it I think.    Gotta tell a cute story about the rug and the fur babies.   Now remember they are outside dogs-EXCEPT- when it is cold, hot, wind blowing, raining, snowing or anything that is not perfect weather you know.   When we give them their snacks,  AKA chews for their teeth but we tell them they are snacks they go promptly to the red rug.  The most expensive rug in the house-of course.  So when I moved this into the bedroom we gave them their chew and they trotted off to the red rug.  They didn't even slow down when they saw the rug gone, just trotted on into the bedroom. They knew a good thing when they saw it.

There you go a change of style for us.   Now the furniture we have had for oh maybe 30 years but the other stuff just comes and goes. 
 
When I finish it I will share the whole picture. 
 
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world today.
 
I did have a free "ciggie" signup on my other blog and now to think of a give a way for this blog.

  3. Beautiful! I'm more of a minimalist. We live by a mulch recycler and no matter what THEY say, they create LOTS of dust. I love to look at what others do to create their own space.

    1. Oh I was thinking you were going to live in West Texas Carol, we have the dust big time. Can dust in the morning and by afternoon looks like it never got dusted. I just think of it as part of the decoration. LOL I know parts of Arizona get it big time also so we get to share the dust all over the country. Have a good one. xo

    1. Hi Janet, the dogs are so funny didn't know if they would even miss the rug or not, we thought it was under the table they liked but nope the rug is the treasure. More coming just gotta do a little more to the bedroom. Thinking of finding a bench to go at the foot of the bed. Did have one but it got a new home elsewhere in the house. things play musical chairs around here. Guess the Disabled Vets Store we come, we find treasures there always and the main guy that works there, we have gotten him to visit with us now. Have a good weekend xoxoxo

  5. Annette, thanks for sharing the little sneak peeks. I love that you're reusing the rug from the DR in your MBR. I used to watch a TV show where they redecorated homes with what the owners already had, just be rearranging from room to room. It was amazing how the rooms could look totally different and 1000 times better. Sounds like you have that gift. Looking forward to seeing the finished redecorated room.
