Blood, Sweat....and perhaps a few tears.....

For those visiting from Between Naps on the Porch Metamorphosis Monday-Welcome!

I am late on posting. I have been in full swing of another room redo. Thus the blood (consider it proven, Legos can draw blood), sweat (boy did I sweat!) and tears (I pulled my back out moving furniture, stupid me). This room redo, using things that are all either found in thrifting/consignments, inherited or reclaimed with the exception of of just two or three items.
It is still in the remodeling stages, but here is a sneak peek:

(Remember those shutters that have been in my attic for 14 years...)

For those visiting from Between Naps on the Porch Metamorphosis Monday-Welcome! I am so happy to have you stop by!

I am so bloomin' jealous. I WANT A PROJECT!!! I went to Michaels AND Hobby Lobby the past two days buying some clearance junk, because I need to CREATE!

And looking at your items? I can see it. It is going to look fabulous!

Jennifer, come and see me! I will pu tyour to work. I have so many projects. More than enough that I have zero motivation to do. Just ask my Big Daddy.

I've got a few hundred projects as well - unfortunately at the top of mine is cleaning out the two garage/storage units to get to the stuff I want to use!

I can't wait to see what you've got going. You didn't mention that your shutters were still nekked - lucky lucky you! They are going to take that charcoal/black color wonderfully.

That star is gorgeous!

Can't wait to see the finished project. Love the star, and the can of spray paint, my BFF.

What a creative way to use the shutters. Seems like lately, I too, have been using the black spray paint. Love everything you have done.

Jennifer! You are so fun! ;) I love what you did with this room, and with the budget you worked with. I think when one is determined to work with what they have to somehow come up with what they want, something magical happens! You really outdid yourself with these fabulous "metamorphosis" ideas! Love it! ~CC Catherine
