Are you getting the feeling you are looking at the house of paneling?
and popcorn ceiling?
orange, gold, wood and fancy curtains?
This room was not that hard to change...mostly just removing to get ready for the new look
except for this one closet...which was to become the stairwell to the new entry stairs
hmmm....what surprise will Mr. PV find behind the paneling?
once everything was empty it was time to put it back
Just in time for Coach Been to marry his sweety pie and have his very own room at 822
it was a very special time to get this room ready for our Mattie to be a bride
The gold foil flocked 1970 wallpaper
so I was on the internet hunt to find a fabric with
a purple I liked to match the bathroom ceiling
birds flowers trees
this is a Pottery Barn Duvet
Are you ready for today?
when we found out this amazing antique Chinese screen we bought at an auction,
was not really a priceless antique after all...
I painted the hell out of it
gold, silver, pewter, pearl and then
we screwed it to the wall!
and it became the headboard
in other parts of the room I used the antique armoire, chaise,
and lots of vintage gold frames and mirrors
I recovered these chairs years ago and the fabric is a nice compliment
I can change the bedding much easier than these chairs
in my entire life this table and chairs from my grandmother have never been apart
lampshade is upside down, crystals and a ceiling medallion
~on the lookout for a wonderful old chandelier but for now this will do~
we bought this old dresser at an auction in Texline
just the right color and amount of shabby for kissy pictures and flowers
did I mention we moved the stairs?
and when we did, it created this little cubby closet where I hoped
Mrs. Been would dress for her wedding. Our oldest bought our house 3 blocks down, and that is where Mattie grew up....she was sentimental to dress there on her wedding day
besides..her dress would not even begin to fit through that tiny doorway into the dressing room
yet another outside door in 822
why in the world did they feel they must have an outside entrance in every room?
We didn't close this one up because it has a nice large porch and has made a perfect entrance to the backyard and pool area. When not in use I have it blocked with this French market basket full of pillows....to trip the burglars~
this door leads into the bathroom
I painted all the doors the color of the walls with gold French words
The "wedding veil" curtains are the same as the bathroom
don't you know Coach Been loves to see this collection of crystal catching the morning sun?
- Removed the paneling and replaced the carpet
- Built in a dressing room closet to accommodate the stairs on the other side
- Painted the walls and added crown mold
- Tried to keep up with the fancy bathroom within the space
so much fufu
gold, lace, bling, all on a very tight budget!
there was really no challenge here...just lots of fun
this room really serves as our guest room for all occasions
and The Beens are happy to share!
