The weatherman said there would rain this weekend and I am feeling internal pressure to get the guest room redone so, horror of all horrors, we stayed in the city this weekend. About once every two months we just have to stay home, take care of home maintenance or other commitments. I have been itching to get on the guest room wall painting. I was sick most of the weekend so I did not move too fast.
The past two weeks I have scoured the “oops” bins at Lowe’s and Home Depot for paint that would work with no luck so the paint had to be purchased FULL PRICE! I hate that. Because of the paint, I will have to up my budget to $150.00.
So far I am doing well with the purchases:
5.00- Milk Glass Lamp
7.50 fabric for lampshade and headboard
17.00 comforter
20.00 pillows and dust ruffle
15.00 night stand ( other night stand was roadside find)
6.00 trim for armoire
5.00 hardware for armoire
5.00 bookcase legs (upcoming project- the bookcase is a freebie)
2.00 mirror
2.00 frame ( will become a chalkboard)
20.00 for stencil ( online find!)
32.00 for paint ( grrr)
$136.50
I still need to find curtains and some additional fabric for pillows and a project. I may not make my budget, but it will be close.

Here are some sneak peeks into the guest room  I did not get everything done because I felt so bad, but I wanted you to see that I did get some work accomplished.

 Glazing the yellow night stands.
 
 Glazing the details.
 
 Stenciling
 I learned a lot.
 
 It is coming together!
 
 The night stands look great.
 
I just threw the bedding on for the shot.  It is definitely not ready for a close up.
