A couple of things just totally went my way this past week and who doesn't like it when that happens?
First of all, I ordered a new bed set for my son's room. This is the THIRD..I just couldn't find one that really worked in his room..that is until NOW!
I ordered it off Overstock.com and got it today.
It's the perfect shade of red to go with these:
I had to use the flash and it knocked the color off in this picture, but they look great together. I found these night stands at Salvation Army last year and got the set for $20..of course, they looked terrible when I brought them home but the craftsmanship is wonderful. Please ignore all the book clutter. We're in the process of organizing his room.
I love the metal snap details on the shams..it's like a canvas material but not too rough. I can't wait for him to see it!
I finished a couple of little projects. I painted the telephone table and candlestick and then found these two outdoor sconces in the garage! I bought them years ago and they were packed away in a box. I used a little bottle of sample paint from Martha Stewart's line. I haven't heard good reviews of her paint but I thought it did fine for small projects. I also used Valspar Aphaltum Glaze that MMS has been talking about..it's so easy to work with and I like the look. I'm putting all of these on the patio for now.
Well my brother is in town for a few days, so I'm going for a visit. Have a good night!!
