Blue Bedrooms

Friday, July 08, 2011

I have been slow to embrace the 'blue' trend in home interiors. Maybe it's because I live in the 
mountains and we are surrounded by rich greens and earthy browns and blue has always felt
like it lives happier at the lake or beach. But, I must say, I am opening myself up a lot more to
Mr. Blue. Especially when you see it in bedrooms rooms like these.

What about you, are you a blue fan?

Wow, with a title like that I know you are all just dying to keep reading...

For those of you that are kind enough to continue on, bless you.
{I am running on little 3 hour 'naps' so catchy prose is simply failing me. apologies... }

I'm working on a renovation project and the master bedroom is now ready for furniture. The bed
the home owners owned had good lines and was a perfect candidate for a little update.
Here's the footboard before:

And here is the headboard:

Here's the after:

I used Benjamin Moore's Hampshire Gray which I also used on the adjoining master bathroom vanities.
 I distressed it, and then used Light Brown Briwax. 

I am waiting on a few more pieces to be delivered and then I can do the install. 


I am a little slow on blogging this week. I celebrated the 4th by bringing my mom home from the hospital.
I will be taking care of her this week, so posts may be a little intermittent.  Bear with me!

Be careful with the celebrations...

You could shoot your butt off.

Happy Trails!

Friday, July 01, 2011

I spotted this man while driving down the highway outside my little town.  I was so intrigued that I had
 to do a u-turn to get a second look! Balanced on each side of the front wheel were 2 coolers and
backpacks were secured on each side of his back wheel. This was obviously no short trip.

Where did he begin his journey? How long had he been traveling? Where was he headed?
 What kind of flags was he flying??

 I would have loved to have been able to meet up with this happy guy and questioned him about
 his adventures--I can only imagine the great stories he could sharel!     

Wherever your journeys take you this holiday weekend, enjoy them to the fullest!!
