Let’s get busy!

OK so you all know that I have been blogging about tackling my spare room project for some time now – well it’s time! I joined The Spring Cure from Apartment Therapy and I am securely on this bandwagon! So I’ll be keeping a record of my progress on this blog.

Here are the “befores”

My goals for the room are:

*paint the walls
*paint the furniture
*add curtains
* hang pictures/artwork

So there you have it. Jerry’s family is coming to visit in 6 weeks…Think I can do it???

Thanks! The quilt is definitely the inspiration for the room. The walls will be that stone color (you can see a swatch under the window in one of the pictures) and I will accent with white and robin's egg blue.

The sofa will NOT be making it's home in this room. I plan to paint the side tables white and possible another piece (behind the sofa) - However, I might leave that one the wood color and simply update the knobs....we'll see. I am looking forward to the whole process!

I really like that quilt. I am confused about the loveseat; is that staying in the room? What other furniture will you have to fit in there?
