(note the ugly brown window frames, lack of baseboard, knotty pine and 30 year old brown aluminum mini blinds)
I started with Kilz primer.
After first coat of Kilz. I did 3 thin coats.
First coat of green going on. I ended up doing 2 coats of green. I used a paint brush instead of a roller.
I went to the “frame” dept. to choose some frames.
I used this one I got from Joey in the Spring. (.96)
And this one I also got at the Peddler’s mall, but as you can see it was not from Joey’s booth.
I spread out some plastic and got to work painting. You can also see the appliques I used on the headboard.
So, here they are in the first layout.
The second layout.
(edited to add)
Out of order, but layout # 6
I don’t usually have a difficult time making up my mind. Each time I think I like it until I take pictures and put them on the computer. Then I find something I don’t like. But that’s okay, it’s a simple fix and easy to change. I still do not know how I’m going to arrange the frames.
For now the cedar chest will be staying in my bedroom. I hope to eventually put it in Jamie’s room, which I suppose should be called the “guest room”. Jamie went away to college 10 years ago. She visits a few times a year. (love ya girl)
The cedar chest belonged to my aunt for whom I was named. I got it when I was 16 years old. It is very near and dear to my heart.
Hopefully it will all make sense when you see the big reveal next week. Just a reminder, I will be having a few giveaways next week to celebrate my blogiversary.
