The Bedroom Makeover is in Full Swing!

I have been missing!
Missing from the blog world.
I'm in full swing of  redecorating my master bedroom.
While trying to re decorate and run a business,
I have found I have little time to spend countless hours
 browse on the computer.

In 2009, I posted HERE about starting
 a master bedroom make over.
 That's right, 2009. 
 Well it's almost May of 2011 and I am finally getting things done.

So now I am going to give you little tease
of what I have been up to with the redecorating.

Here's what the doors on the armoire looked like
 before I started the project....


The armoire is Thomasville Furniture. 
 It's good furniture, but it is 24 years old and in need of a face lift. 
 So, Remember just a peek. 
 Here's the face lift...



My friend Sharon is a wonderful artist. 
 I only painted the cabinet
and even with that I had to call on her help. 
 She did all the wonderful flowers.
I had an inspiration photo.
 I wanted the flowers to look look weathered.



Just one more peek of another project in the bedroom. 
Here's the fabric I chose for the draperies.
It's a wonderful toille.
 The fabric also has a weathered look to it.


I'll show you part of the draperies.

The doors look fantastic, Sherry! Your friend is very talented. I LOVE that fabric! Your drapes look wonderful and I can't wait to see the full view. It looks like you did get quite a bit done on your list. I know the sewing is time consuming, but I bet you'll be back in no time with your "after" pictures!

I love what you did with this fabric for your drapes. In fact, I have the same fabric. They are beautiful.

Do you mind sharing what pattern you used to make your drapes? If not, I understand.

Also, did you find a companion fabric that went with this fabric or a fabric that would compliment?

Thank you so much,
