Can you save the fairies?? Heh I'd like to put them in my new room.


I know you will come up with something great and on a dime too. xo, suzyk

LOL, I hope Nate Berkus reads your post! He's adorable! I think whatever you do, it'll be perfect! Keep the fairies, love it!


You're too funny. Maybe Nate will ring your doorbell. I like the sofa too.
Dropping by from Met Monday, with a post on repurposed shelving.



I'm going through the very same thing - I guess I'd best post about it too. I'll be redoing an upstairs bedroom and the only new things are fabric (1.99/yd) and paint. A friend has offered to come paint with me and that's GOLD!
Good luck with your room - can't wait to see how it all turns out.


Lucky you! Enjoy your bigger space. Can't wait to see the end photos. What fun!


And I thought remodeling my kitchen was a giant endeavor!! The remodeling here is nearly done! Wishing you well! Cathy

What a nice mosaic and series of photos. It looks like you all are in major reno mode. Good luck and I hope you enjoy it once everything is the way you want it. Happy MM.


How nice to have a big space for creating and relaxing. Enjoy!


Busy, busy, busy! Wonderful series and how great it will be when finished! I have to say that I feel sorry for the poor fairy! :D :D


Beautiful and colorful mosaics.

Good luck with your project! I know what it's like to work with a zero budget! Have fun!


Out with the old, in with the new. It's a challenge. Best of luck with your painting and renovating.


Susan, I remember well the strain of paying two college tuitions ...someday it will be over and you will be able to treat yourselves with lots of decorating! Right now I think you'll enjoy your larger private bedroom no matter how it looks. I'm traveling this week ... it's nice and warm here!

So exciting to start a new project. This one looks large but it will be a wonderful space when it is finished. Keep us posted. V


That would be wonderful to decorate, even on a budget, a place just for the TV and crafts, etc. Love that pewter colored couch. Looking forward to see how everything turns out.

Brenda Kula

That would be a great little studio or office for you!


Decorating is fun, but as you know, it's work! And W O R K is a four-letter word!

Happy Blue Monday, Sue.

So many changes!!! We are in the process of figuring out where to go with all of my candle stuff. Mikey's room was one thought but he isn't officially moved out yet and there is no other bedroom to put him into when he is back on weekends.

Therefore, I find myself happy for you that you can get to work on this project. It will be very rewarding when it is done.

Any response from Nate yet?


Nice and cool feeling:).
Love the make over.
Cheers and enjoy the great new week.


Ah, a wonderful reno to welcome spring I think I might dive into that chaos of sooner this month. Take a slow breathe and a cup of tea to make you feel a little bit relaxed. Hope to see the the outputs in your post.

Oh I know ALL about that "it all started with a bathroom" thing, lol!! Our attic is oh-so-close to being done...I wish had taken more before photos because it's kind of amazing. If I do say so myself. :-)

I love that chair mucho and WOW $5!! You KNOW I love that! You can make the room seem lofty and modern with the fabulous dormered ceiling...I love the muted colors of the chair and that fabulous lamp (which I hope you buy as your statement piece...and what store is that?) and you can make an inexpensive "statement" by putting a (Home Goods!!) rug over your w-to-w carpet. Can't wait to see what you do!


Great sofa! I can't wait to see more pictures!


Renovating while paying tuition - I hear you! I'm sure it just inspires us to be even more creative (that's what I'm telling myself anyway!)


What a great open space to work with! I am sure it will be fantastic when you are finished. And so much more satisfying to do it the thrifty way! :)
