This is what happens when your hubby leaves town.

 My husband went to Fl. to get our daughter set up with a car so she could get to and from work since she is staying in Miami for the summer.
This is how I spent my weekend off!
                                    Before   and After
I love the change. 
It was a hard decision because it has been that color all my life but the red just didn't go with the rest of the room.
Not sure who decided on the original finish on this wood wall and painting the bricks.  Maybe it was like that when my Grandparents moved here.
I like to keep things original but this time I went with what I wanted.
I got these new valances from work.
Not a good thing to be surrounded with inspiration all day.

Woops, haven't taken the plastic off the door yet. 
Just part of living in an old house.  It's really cold here today again anyway.  I am chomping at the bit to get out and plant some flowers!

 I know it looks like a granny room, but I love it and it soothes me when I come in here.

See all those books?
I still have to read most of them.
Just so you know,
almost all of them came from library and garage sales.

I have worked very hard getting the house cleaned, organized and decorated since I had so much free undistributed time to myself this weekend.  I can be very productive without anyone being around.
I am not sure how I will ever deal with retirement.
I love my husband but 24/7?
I don't think the TV has been off for this many days in a row ever!

  1. I can understand Since my hsb has been unemployed some days this 24/7 is way to much! I have been known to kick him out so I can get things done lol I love your shabby chic living room - it is so light and airy. By painting the wall it has made it stand out less. I can't wait to see what else you have done.
