I’ll quickly catch you up on what got done this week, but first I want to show you How to Make Farmhouse Style Pallet Wood Frames.
Since time is always limited around here and I wanted some wall art on the wall above the bed as a focal point, I decided to make three framed watercolor floral prints for that big wall.
These pretty frames were made with pallet wood that I cut on my miter saw at 45 degree angles. The water color flowers were printed on white textured card stock. The textured card stock give the impression that these prints were really painted instead of printed.
I finished the frames using Vintage Effect Wash™ that I received from DecoArt. It’s a brand new product and I couldn’t wait to try it. I have to say I love it and can’t wait to use it again.
For now the framed prints are resting on the top of the headboard. I’m not sure whether I’ll keep them there or hang them on the wall above the headboard. I’ll determine that once everything else in the room is done and in place.
I believe a saved a big chunk of change making these beautiful framed prints myself.
I am updating my orange master bedroom as a guest participant in the One Room Challenge. The ORC® is a six-week long event hosted by Linda from Calling It Home. Every week on Wednesday, 20 professional design bloggers give an update on their room makeovers. And then on Thursdays, the guest participants (that’s me and a couple hundred of my blogging friends) link up our room updates.
I originally started this makeover in April, but had to bow out after an unexpected medical issue. But now I’m back to finish!
Like I said, I started with an orange bedroom! It’s no longer orange – we took care of that in Week One!
The plan was to work on building the window seat last week but that just didn’t work out. I just may have spread myself a little thin last week. But the good news is that I do have an update!
What did I get done? Well for starters, the trim and doors are painted. Which is no small feat. There are three six panel doors in this relatively small bedroom! And I honestly am not sure if they have ever been painted since this house was built about 17 years ago!
They now look soooo much better! I’m going to have a complete tutorial with tips and tricks for painting interior doors coming up next week so watch for that.
Here is Where I Party!
