Some people count sheep to fall asleep. Or their blessings.
And while I definitely try both of those (plus a little Tylenol PM!) when I’m suffering from insomnia, nothing helps me relax and calm my mind more than envisioning rooms all redecorated. I envision rooms in my own home, my friends’ homes, and homes which only live in my imagination.
And while very rarely do I get the chance to see those visions come to life, there are those times when everything I saw in my mind’s eye as I drifted off to dreamland actually comes to fruition and it’s even BETTER than what I had envisioned.
So it was with the makeover that took place recently in my home involving a whole lot of dreaming and a whole lot more paint!
Last week I shared with you how we transformed a built-in china cabinet and you can see that makeover here.
And while I’m not ready to show off the entire family room makeover, I am going to whet your whistle a bit and show you the fireplace!
Here is how it looked BEFORE…
…and here it is NOW!
I honestly get a huge grin on my face every time I look at it. And I swoon a little bit…ok, who am I kidding? I swoon A LOT! 😉
Just look at how the lighter color enhances all of the wonderful details.
I freely admit to having just a wee bit of fun decorating it once it was all done.
Adding simple wood candlesticks.
Dried lavender in an urn
Old books and a ‘faux’ deer antler.
The change is dramatic, no?
And just wait until you see the rest of the room! Hee hee!! I’m soooo excited about how the shelves turned out and have had a blast accessorizing them. Off to hang curtains now and I’ll meet you back here next week with another reveal!
Hope you have a fantastically fabulous weekend friends,
