Room Makeover Progress

I did not make it into the 4th round of Creating with the Stars.  Bummer!  But I am happy with the couch I made.  The theme was paint, and I immediately knew I was not going to do anything expected like paint a wall or refinish wood furniture.   I thought the couch was little edge-y and different.  I carved out a horse and stamped that baby onto to it.  This couch was so gross before!!  Would I paint upholstery again in the furniture?  Maybe.  This couch is not functional, and it is scratchy and crunchy.  But man does it make a great staging piece!!  Imagine throwing one of my quilts on this bad girl.  Yee haw!



On the flip side, I am continuing with Round 4 Home Decor, but since I am no longer in the contest, I can share with YOU some progress photos.

Please keep in mind I only have less than a week to redo this room for a little girl, and I have limited funds and resources.  Working out of town is completely different too!  I miss my family, but I'll see them soon.




Thank you for your support and love these last few weeks.  It's been quite a ride for me, and the end is in sight.  I don't think I have ever completed projects so quickly in my life!

  4. Really?!? I think that couch looks awesome! Such a creative idea and your styling of the photo makes it even better. I'm excited to see the little girl's room - I really like that purplish headboard peek!

  6. I voted for you! Super creative, awesome, and out-of-the box. I think unfortunately voters vote for what goes with their particular style or taste and not what was most creative. The staging was gorgeous too. You did really well and are super talented!!!

  15. bummer that the next round didn't work out - but i think this project could fuel some other great applications - that horse stamp could be really cute on curtains, around the sides of a big square ottoman, to punch up a powder room wall, on the bottom of a wood tray - congrats on all your hard work, and hope it opens the door to some other fun new opportunities for you!
