Bed Room Re-do & Wal mart finds

Bedroom/Sewing room Make over
When we moved into our little farmhouse,  I 
had this room painted blue with white trimming.
 I soon discovered that the blue was too 
much.. So, [with my husband letting me know
that we just paid men to paint this a year ago,ha] I 
went to Lowes and bought  a light gray for the
bottom and the same  Celery Root [cream white]
for  the top half. I am really pleased with, how 
open the room is now. So, I must tell hubby.. I won!!!
The red/white stripe throw at end of bed.. I found on
Walmart.com for 8.99.. Love it..
[Note... click on photos to enlarge]

My sewing nook.. So much lighter and brighter
with the light colors. Organizing  my sewing stuff
helped also. My fabrics are still kept in the big
book shelf  with bins, in the living room. Works great.

 [not like having a big sewing room, But, I am adjusting.☺]
I  painted the stool white.. It was a light brown wood.
It already had a gray/cream cushion cover.

NOPE....I didn't redo the kitchen [hubby would kill
me.lol] ☺Just wanted to show you the cute pillow
I found at walmart. It is an indoor/outdoor pillow. It
was $5.00.  

Close up of  pillow. It is flowers in a mason jar.
The jar is teal  and says, "Faith".  Love it.
This stool has moved all over the house.. It is not really
used.. [only when all the kids/grandkids are here,
and we need the extra chair]. But, I love
to hang pretty seasonal towels  or in this case,
a pretty pillow.

My computer area in hall.. My desk was so small, 
when I put the printer on it, it left no room for any
thing. So, I purchased another shelving unit at Lowes
for $13.00.  I  found these galvanized bins at Walmart.com
for $7.47. They are perfect.. they hold my copy paper, 
office supplies.etc.  The top holds my printer and gives
me more room on  my desk..

I have a new to me camera.. Mine died. It takes really
good photos.. Thank you to my sweet friend, Deedy..

    1. Dianna, I love the gray walls too.. [Never would have dreamed , I would ever do gray???] But, it really opens the little spaces up. I foresee more painting in the spring.
