~~Saying Good-bye to the Flowers~~

I am working on transforming my old flowery craft room into my new studio :)  The wallpaper was on the walls when we bought the house and I am ready to say good bye to this wallpaper. Here are some pictures of the progress....more pictures to follow when it is all done.
The Before Picture



 The After..well not quite the AFTER..still have lots to do..like clean off my work space :)


We used Gilded Linen for the walls and Hunter's White for the trim
(Valspar paint)
 
~Some new artwork for the walls~

Hi Heather, YEP lots of flowers! When we were looking at this house and I first saw this room..it was so nice and I never noticed the wallpaper on the ceilings. The previous owner had the room decorated so nice that it took away the SHOCK of all the flowers. Now Tim says I will have good FENG SHUI to create..LOL

Patti said...

TeresaM, You remember this room? LOL....now I can't wait to you to come and see the new look!

Patti said...

Teresa~ Thank You. The colors don't show up too well on my pictures but I am pleased with them. It is a big difference! :)

Patti, I can't believe you are getting rid of all the flowers and the flowers on the ceiling, lol! Wow! I'm sure it was bright and cheery year round in that room, hehe.

Your transformation so far is lovely! Love the colors that you've chosen. Cute and inspiring wall art too!
