Weekend Update

Hi All

This was a busy weekend.  The Guess room/craft room project was my priority because I only had 4 days to complete  tons of project….OMG! I  worked long hours every night and on top of this, my daughter is in town.  I got a chance to spend some time with her, but she helped out by spending time with her brother.  They had a great weekend together at the beach.  Well, today is the last day and here’s what I’ve done so far.

 

I decided to assign Friday night to painting the projects. I painted frames I found in the basement gold, white and silver, and I  think the color combination works well together.

This tray was from a gift I received at my last baby shower.  I just couldn’t toss it because I knew I could use it, so I stored it in his closet.  Well, that time has come.  I painted the sides metallic gold. Always re-purpose unused items and save some money.

The lamp was another item that was in the basement.  It was a 70’s orange and the base was brown….I’m sure it was stylish 40 years ago.  I’ve decided to paint it white to give it a fresh look and the base gold.  I’m really loving this combination because it gives a classic feel.

Well, Saturday was for sewing.  All of this fabric was leftover from other projects, so I didn’t have to spend any extra money.  I purchased 26 x 26 pillows from Hobo for only $7.00 each….not bad.

As you know, today is the last day of the June 30 day challenge and I still have a couple of small projects to complete. I’m so glad I challenged myself and tackle this room. I love how the room is coming alone and I can’t wait to show you guys.
