Hello! How are You? Are you ready for Christmas? It sure is getting here fast.
As promised I am sharing with you my upstairs bedroom that is finally coming together.
Months ago I showed you how I papered the ceiling by buying just a big roll of rose colored paper from Home Depot and tearing the paper into whatever size I wanted to use and then smother it with wallpaper paste before placing it on the ceiling. This paper comes either in brown or rose. Since it was for the ceiling I chose the rose color.
My sister-in-law Linda did a bedroom in her home in the brown. I was amazed at how beautiful her room turned out so of course I had to try it. The reason I used it on this ceiling is because there was paper up already but it had been torn in a lot of different places and I had too much trouble trying to remove this old paper so I could not figure out what to do. Hiding it with this paper seemed the easiest and cheapest way to go.
It's not hard to do but time consuming if your doing it yourself. Especially in a room like this that is all ceilings.
My bed belonged to my Mama who I adored! Last year when Christi was living with me I painted it and the dresser to match black. We also did an antique bed of Christi's too. Her's turned out really pretty.
Not sure if I will keep mine black.
As you can see by this picture I am not near finished with decorating the room.
All my wicker up here is different colors. So my hold up now in painting the wicker is trying to decide what color I want to paint it. Of course you know I want your ideas.
I spent hours today trying out different materials for the wicker couch and chase but not sure what I will end up using to cover their cushions. Maybe I should wait til I pick the color of the wicker first.
I do love my new comforter. It is from Target and since it was pink and green it goes prefect with this room.
See how the ceiling comes down almost to the floor on this side of the wall. If I had a nickel for every time I have bumped my head I could buy some more wicker. lol
Excuse the big ladder. It is not part of my decor. Too heavy for me to move downstairs so when my son's come for the Holidays I will have them take it to the barn.
Here is an old pink chase that needs some tender loving care. Before the new roof I had problems with leaks and this poor piece was dripped on one night. So I am trying to figure out what to use on it to remove the stains.
I brought this bookcase upstairs from my closet. It has to be painted also. Again not sure what color.
The dresser fits between the two little windows and beside it I have a mini microwave for my hot chocolate and a small refrig for my drinks.
Behind the screen is Tinkerbell's litter box and my porta potty. Yep I share to much with you.
My granddaughter had a fit when she saw the porta potty. She told me Grandma Yellow Hair don't you dare use that thing. You go down those stairs take a left and walk down the hall and take a right. There you will find your bathroom.
I told her when she gets 64 years old and needs to potty during the night and has to stumble down a flight of stairs walk through two rooms and a hall then let me know if she makes it on time. lol
She told her Dad that I could not do this because there was no sink to wash my hands. I told her I will put a bottle of hand sanitizer up here by the potty.
She then remarked well then I know what I am getting you for Christmas A Years supply of hand sanitizer. lol Love that girl!
When you walk into the room this corner is to the left. It is the only space in the room with a full wall. Sorry not sure how to explain it. I bought this closet from Wal Mart to use as a closet...lol....but it is too big. Clint put it together for me when they came after Thanksgiving. It's a great piece for a room without a closet but I am not sure if I will keep it. Since it is so tall this is the only place it fits.
Everything seems to be pushed to one end of the room so that is one reason I might take this closet down and use this corner for a sitting area where I could read or write.
On the right side of the pink chair is where the bed is located.
This room is still a challenge to me but it is slowly falling in place. I chose to stick with the same colors through out the house my pinks and green. Yep I know too much pink.
Hopefully soon I can finish it and boy will that be a good feeling.
My Candy giveaway ends tomorrow at midnight. If you have not put your name in the hat be sure and scroll down to the post before this and leave a comment so you can be entered for your choice of Fudge or White or Milk Chocolate Peanut Clusters. Good luck to everyone.
I am leaving in the morning for my neice's wedding near San Antonio so I might be late announcing the winner but I am hoping my Sunday night.
Sorry these pictures are not that great. I hope by clicking them on you might can see the room better.
I hated showing it to you before the final touches but I wanted to show you what I have been doing in my spare time.
Enjoy your weekend! Don't over do it with shopping and getting things done for Christmas. As always I appreciate you visiting me and letting me know how you are doing. Cause you mean a lot to this old Grandma Yellow Hair.
