The Master Bedroom ....FINISHED!


Okay... It's never really finished! My poor Hubs is finally getting a grip on this fact of life. Sorry, Big G! But for now, I would say that it is finished. Of course I would love to have the old nasty 90's vertical blinds replaced with PRETTY CLEAN WHITE PLANTATION SHUTTERS.... And also I am not a decorator or a particularly wealthy person. I work a more than full time job and time is always on short supply. Our home is lived in well. I am always grateful that I have the opportunity to do what I do get to do. So all that to say that our bedroom is the bane of my decorating existence. It is a hodge-podge and left over room. I have tried to incorporate a male and female look .... but some days it just looks dark. So you may not like it. And that's okay.... I will figure it out at some point.

So! On with the tour!


Big G's side... Those little pictures are from both of our family holidays when we were little. Like when he was five and I was five.... They are cute! To the right we have our "Library/ reading corner" ...


That's the new rug ... loved it... don't know how well it goes... but I like it. That chair will eventually be reupholstered in this fabric...

Her side.... I love this little angel. My Great uncle made if for his sister (my grandmother) many years ago. I found the larger oval frame already painted and shabbied in a matching color...

This wall is kinda cool ... The little white dress was my dad's dedication dress. It was stained pretty bad so I tea stained it. The keys are actually skeleton keys the that my Hubs grandfather gave him. I got the print at the Phoenix Art Museum when the Monet exhibit was in Phoenix.



This is our Master Bath....

NO! That isn't alcohol in the bottles (silly) ... It's mouthwash.... We both prefer different brands...


The End

Liz, You did a wonderful job. You are more talented than you give yourself credit. The tea idea was a great choice, and the mouthwash in those bottles, what a great idea. Also loved the gold frames. I have a special place for angels. Great Job. Love and Prayers, Suzanne
