Whew. More home remodel crap . . .

So, I know this is not sewing related. Feel free to skip on by this if you aren’t interested in my lovely 80’s home and my attempts to purge the dark wood, almond outlets, brass fixtures.


Here is what my master bedroom looks like before. That wood beam is not as pretty as it looks here. When you get close to it, you can see it looks cheap, like layers of 2 x 4 glued together. Well that’s what it is, duh, it looks exactly like it’s supposed to, a glue-lam beam. I didn’t bother to clean or pick up at all for these photos. I figure, the worse it looks in the Before photos, the better it will look after.


Here’s the other side.


Here’s the love bed. Baum, chicca, BAUM, baum. You’ve already seen this when I made my purple duvet. I just changed it to white.


Here’s where I am now. I know the rage is gray walls but Alaska is so gray in the winter. I need some warmth in my house. The walls are going to be this medium brown. Dark enough for some contrast with the ceiling but light enough I can live with it in the winter.


I’ll keep you posted. My next sewing project deals with this room too!

I love the new color. For me gray is the color of a very famous funeral parlor in my native Venezuela, so grey it is not for me!!! I can't wait to see the end result.

We are building a new home and this would be perfect to help me keep up with everything!
