Eleven Things - Bedroom Edition

1.  So I think I'm finally over the stomach flu I had a week ago...I literally thought I wasn't going to make it...all I wanted to do was paint!

2.  I managed to put myself together (enough) to make it out to an estate sale in VA last weekend.  It was the last day so everything was 50%.  I didn't score the amazing trophies I saw in the preview photos (it was day three after all) but I did buy this A-mazing bullseye/convex mirror.  I may have lost 10 lbs but I didn't lose my love for awesome vintage junk!  (I even heard a woman in the line say look at that mirror! score!)



3. If you know me at all you know it doesn't look like that anymore :)

4.  I spent my weekend painting my bedroom.  I love the color (Valspar Indigo Streamer).  LOVE.  But it IS pretty dark...this is the moment when I realized (again) that I dislike all the work that goes into painting...


5.  I used a new product I found on Amazon - called the Turboroll - Powered Paint Roller.  It worked pretty well - up until the point the roller flipped off and paint continued to come out of the handle...just make sure you put down plastic drop cloths no matter what!  It saved a lot of time and hassle but it does seem to use a lot of paint.

6.  On a random side note plastic drop cloths over carpet might as well be a sheet of ice...I almost wiped out a couple times...just thought I'd share :)

7.  Popsicle break time!


8.  I used the 'green' tape this time around...it worked pretty well but I still had some bleed through issues.  Going to have to do some touch-ups...sigh... 

9.  I'm working on a few more projects for my bedroom - I'm prying up all the old tile on my dresser that I mosaic-ed a million years ago...which is sooo much fun (sarcasm).  My grandmother gave me a vintage lamp that I'm going to work some magic on.  I also want to find or make some art for the left of the window...so right now it's looking pretty bare on this wall...



10.  I can't tell you how much I love the Threshold curtains...or the 'new' mirror over my bed.  Loving how everything is turning out :)

I get so wrapped up in these projects I forget to eat...going to go make something as soon I finish this post!

11.  Finally...the bedroom reveal!



 


 
Happy Treasure Hunting!

    1. Thanks! It took a while to find the 'perfect' blue for me but I really love it. Sorry the estate sale wasn't the best. I'm sure there will be better ones this summer!
      Take care :)
