So the room was formerly the jungle fever - rainforest cafe nursery:
The nursery before it because the master bedroom. lol
We dont need alot of small I dont spend time in my bedroom other than to sleep. Living space is more important to me and I spend most of my time at the dining room table.
First step was to prime/paint those dark walls and I was working with an idea I had when I created an Olioboard. My husband is from the Caribbean and likes bright colors....me not so much! So in this case I compromised and I asked if he would like a yellow, and the answer was a YES!
My Black/White/Gray/Yellow Olioboard
I chose to use Valspar 4006-1A Silver Leaf for the walls. I painted the door trim out is Valspar White Semi-Gloss.
Here is the bed wall...no headboard I'm not sure what Im doin yet. Love those little pillows, they were $4.97 at JoAnns (thank you very much)
My transformed lamp was crackle gold and I hit it with some Hammered Silver spray paint and with a NEW HomeGoods shade. Used a empty old frame and ripped a magazine picture of an old South Carolina house....can you tell that Im dying to move there.
Love the gray color on the walls...this is Big Daddy J's dresser (hence the big black box on top)
My vintage mirror wall along with my new line of vintage china & crystal jewelry stands (these are mine tho. lol) but I will be listing some in my Etsy shop this week.
Here is the bed wall....those are the fabulous junk art boards that were made for us by Michele Beschen when we appeared on The Nate Show (it aired today...Ahhhhhhhh)
This is my board made from my junk...you can see beads,craft paint, baby thermometer,scissors and a whole bunch of pens,pencils, nails, screws and OMG everything in my kitchen junk drawer.
This is my husbands board made from the stuff in his top dresser drawer, you can see cell phone parts, deodorant, tape, cigar, spongebob toy, coaching whistle and alot of his military items like his cord bracelets and chevrons. The book in the middle is a military prayer book and Michele said that she couldnt paint that so it's the centerpiece.
I LOVE MICHELE....she was from B.Original on DIY Network and is not coming out with B. Organic and I cant wait to start watching. She was so sweet and walked back to the green room with us and her and I were discussing re-purposing & recycling projects. SO FREAKIN COOL...What an awesome experience!
All in all....Im happy with our appearance except for the fact that my reaction was "No Way" I have NEVER used that phrase in my life! Anyone who knows me knows that I say OMG (which I type and blog too) or SHUT UP! that is really my signature line.
However I think I was a bit nervous (okay I was very nervous when sitting in the audience segment, however once up on the stage and talking to the crew during the break I felt better but I must have unconsciously sensored myself for TV. lol
Well I will have to show my dresser once it's refinished and new hardware is on. Remember you can turn someone else's trash into your treasure. You can also repurpose something you have and are tired of into something new and exciting.
THANKS TO ALL FOR THE GREAT SUPPORT, COMMENTS AND TEXTS!
