Little changes around my house

This is a little bedroom that I call the sleeping room. We have this bed, a toddler blow up bed and a pack and play for when we need them. See the stars and the moon around the window. Well the stars are on their way out. I changed the bedding to be a little more girly. The quilt is from my grandmother. She purchased the quilt in Amish country many years ago. The two end pillows are from Brenda at http://cozylittlehouse.blogspot.com . The Minnie dolls were gifts from my friend. The curtains came from Ikea. I still have alot of things, like paint the walls, I want to do in this room but this is a start. Got any ideas for a paint color. The pillow case is vintage......he he, as it was a wedding gift in a sheet set some 43 years ago. See I am vintage as well.
Remember the spool shelf that I wasn't happy with. It was very dark and I attempted to paint it. I didn't like how it came out. So, I took my Rustoleum Heritage White spray paint and gave it a light coat. I had no idea if the paints I had used would be compatible. I knew I could start all over if I didn't like it. Just a fine coat and a little more distressing and I love it now. All of the little things on the shelf is the result of my blogging. Antique markets and barn sales that I have enjoyed . Blogging exposes you to new adventures for sure.

I love old cameras and globes. I just found this little bank globe at the Goumas Candyland where Polly and Keeley have their wares. They finally were able to open up after all the outages. It's a must stop for those of you in Central Ohio.

Yikes this picture is nasty. This was my first attempt at using Pic Monkey. All of these pictures I tried to edit. Sue will be so proud of me for finally trying to edit. The JOY banner was a giveaway that I won in December. When I received the package there were two beautiful pillow covers. Oops I got the wrong package. So I sent the package to the person it was intended. Then finally in February the person that made the banner contacted me that she had forgotten all about it. I know it is Christmasey but it I needed something under this poster size picture. The poster was also in a giveaway that I won in December. I just now hung it. The glare distorts the picture. It is similar to the one on my side bar. But in this picture only the t-shirts are in color.
We watched two of our Colorado grands. They had so much fun with these blocks. I furnished two pre-schools and my own with these giant Lego boxes that used to have baby wipes in them.
So my friends.......stay cool.......and I hope this is a good week for you.

I love all the changes you made...sounds like some little ones are growing up fast! The quilt is beautiful, the Amish are so talented.

I'm glad it cooled off a bit for you. I thought it was never going to end! Now bring on the rain!

XO,
Jane

We make all sorts of changes to provide for the little ones when they visit. Your changes look perfect!

After a 10 year journey with colored walls, I find myself going back to white. It's so clean and bright! I love your vintage shelf.

Change is good, and boy does mine need a change ! Your table redo is precious and the quilt is beautiful, love the bright colors. I've been on I-65 a lot recently and saw bunches of utility trucks headed north, guess they were headed to OH, hope it's finally recovering. We got a nice rain and finally cooled off under triple digits ...we are doing a happy dance :)

You have been a busy girl- changing things around there. I think the table turned out great after all the angst you went through with it. The final coat did the trick.

I never saw those Lego block (wipes). Did you spray paint them, or did they come like that? They are great- xo Diana

Debby, I love your g.mother's quilt. I did reconize the pillows form Brenda at Cozy House:):) You have really put some thought into the sleeping room. Glad you got to enjoy your g.kids. Smiles, Susie

Jo said...

How abt a sunny yellow for the room? The spray paint seemed to do the trick! Looks like even with the recent storms and heat you have stayed busy!

Shirley said...

Hi Debbi, I like the changes that you have made. Yes the linemen do come from several places, I know when we had our bad outage in 93 when we had the ice storm they were here from everywhere. The ones that restored our electricity were from Kentucky. There is never a good time for losing your electricity. At least you can get around in the summer a little easier. I enjoyed your previous post. Have a great day. Your Missouri Friend.

Cute!! I love the quilt! I think a warm butter yellow would be lovely in the room. So pretty!

I love the bedroom, Debby. It looks so cosy. And the quilt is gorgeous, I would love an Amish quilt. I follow Brenda as well and like the cushions she makes. The little side table is cute. Lots of love xxx
