A lifetime ago I started working on the bedroom makeover. And I know it is taking forever and I know that I've been working on other rooms as well but it seems I am finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel.
This shelf you see below is the last of the projects for the bedroom (all projects are listed on the bottom) before the small reveal... because it really is a small room - New York living folks! Today I'm sharing with you a simple makeover of a wall mounted shelf and a super easy way to add shimmer to that shelf.
With the cooler weather kicking in I have been neglecting my blogging duties and instead doing this!
Yes painting the rest of the house. It really needed it as you can see from that wall on the right side of the photo. Today I have a special project for you...I am going to show you how to make an awesome cloudy effect accent wall!
I know the word "awesome" is overused but in this case I think it is a perfect description for my living room wall.
Remember way back, when I shared my ideas and mood board for the bedroom? It was a while ago.
I had been sitting on top of this project for a while now, feeling very indecisive about the whole bedroom really and in particular the two Mid Century Modern pieces of furniture you see below. Should I paint them grey and which portions should be painted or should all of it be painted one color. It went on and on... this plethora of choices.
The problem was too much furniture and too many colors in a small room. I needed to paint these pieces so they would look unified without making too much of a statement.
But I'm back to show you what I have done and how I paired those two pieces of MCM furniture to get one unified look.
Sometimes in life you get what you wish for. I had wanted this cabinet from the first time I laid my eyes on it. It was vintage and full of dust but that did not deter me. What I thought would be an easy project turned out to be exactly the opposite.
This has to be from the Seventies and once housed an actual television inside those ornate doors. Our neighbor had given it to my dad and he kept it in the foyer but I felt it had potential ... I mean look at that scroll work. And so I wanted to revive this vintage TV cabinet.
This is the post where I get to revisit one of my previous projects and mess with it because sometimes I'm just not happy with the first time around. I wanted to add a Farmhouse Chippy look to this mirror. So here we are with the mirror makeover project: Take Two!
In all fairness I should say that this project which you see below was my first time using milk paint. I knew nothing about how to use milk paint or how it would react. Of course that didn't stop me from trying it out.
I'm Mary and I recently moved to New York from beautiful Greece. I like to re-purpose and up-cycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece and New York.
