Denim Delight

Denim. It’s not just for your behind anymore.  Or your vests. Or your jackets. Or your sleeveless jackets. Which, technically are vests. Ok, so denim has been worn everywhere. But has it been on the wall?

It has now, thanks to this bedroom makeover by Heather. She did a denim paint treatment on the walls, but that wasn’t even the half of it.  Everything else is equally gape-worthy. There’s a teepee with a faux campfire in there for crying out loud.

The Really Real World

This is the true story … of seven strangers … picked to live in a house … and find out what happens … when housewares stop being polite … and start getting real … The Real World: Jamie’s Bedroom.

On this episode, Drab Wallcolor can no longer put up with Laundry Pile’s excessive drama. Flimsy Curtains and Matronly Lamps have a major blowup, upsetting the sensitive Book Stack. Antique Chest confronts Mismatched Bed Linens, annoyed with her laziness and lack of contribution to the household.

“You just lie there ALL DAY!”

“Get off my back, geezer!”

Something had to change. Something like … all of it.

Everything got the boot! Everything that is, except Antique Chest, who got herself a lead in the critically-acclaimed spin-off, Jamie’s Bedroom: Back from the Brink.

Oscarworthy

Happy Monday! Thanks so much for all your kind words about my mini bathroom makeover!  I truly appreciate it.

So what’s new with you? Did you watch the Academy Awards? I didn’t, but I did scroll through the #oscars hashtag on Instagram, just so I could see what people were wearing. I should teach a class: The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Watching the Oscars.

Don’t hate me, but I think my favorite was Solange, followed by Gwyneth and ScarJo. They were edgy but elegant, and not covered head to toe in tulle and ruffles and sequins.  I’ve made some helpful illustrations to show you my least favorites:

I mean, right? Who were your favorites? Seems like everyone always either plays it way too safe or veers into Crazytown on the Oh No She Di’int Express.

 

Anyway, lets get down to it.  Monday morning makeover coming your way, courtesy of Jennifer at Dimples and Tangles who has recently put the finishing touches on her daughter’s bedroom.

Before: simple and sweet, but nothing to get excited about.  Well, get ready to get excited …

You Guest It.

You know that saying, “Go big or go home?” That’s what Eden did here.  Although it’s a guest room, so she probably meant “Go big and stay home. My home, that is.  Stay at my home. As my guest. Nevermind.”

But she really did go big, with a nine-foot-tall headboard! That’s one way to make your guests feel special. Good luck getting rid of them. They’ll probably be expecting to wake up to breakfast in bed and a freshly ironed newspaper now.

Eden reports that this entire makeover was done for about $350, with the headboard costing $120 of that. Most everything else was Craigslist, thrifted, or homemade, including this nifty armoire makeover.

It was nearly twenty years old and showing its age, so Eden stained it and gave it a dry-brushing treatment to match the headboard. Lovely!
