Dressing up Bessie

Sarah alerted me to the fact that she was overhauling her entire house, so I hopped on over to her blog Baby Steps with Bessie to take a peek. (Anyone who names their house, let alone names their house”Bessie,” is alright with me!)
 So here was Bessie’s dining room. Ack! Shield your eyes! Let’s get a close up of that wallpaper. I see mallard ducks floating among be-ribboned baskets of flowers. Home Sweet Home indeed. A little too sweet. I’m afraid.

Ahhhhh, it’s like you can breath in here now! And let’s take a look at the living room. Be prepared for another assault on your eyes, this time from the lava-like glow of the magenta carpet.

And after! If springtime looked like a living room, it might look just like this. Thanks Sarah! By the way, I see you! Check out more of Bessie’s progress over on her blog HERE.

  1. I love Bessie and her new do, all of us ladies need a change once in awhile. LOvely, all of it.
    Love ya,Debbie

  2. Seeing how the stone looks painted on the fireplace after, makes me wish I owned my place and could do the same! What a FANTASTIC change. 🙂

  3. I can’t figure out how mallard ducks and baskets are related. I’m just glad that Bessie doesn’t have to deal with them any more!

  4. Oh my! Thank goodness someone showed Bessie some love 🙂

  5. Thanks for featuring me here…Bessie has been a labor of love…we only have a couple of projects left to go…

    This is a recycled HUD property on 10 acres…we are now mortgage free!

    After all the before and after photos are posted, we will be hosting a renaming party…because somehow Bessie doesn’t fit anymore, she isn’t the same worn out cow sitting in her pasture that she once was… ;0D

    Blessings and thanks for stopping by!

  6. WOW this turned out great! I love the blue color!
