Update and Progress

Well, Tiffany and I proceeded to paint the Master Bed Room last week and after painting one room, I decided to call the painter and have him give me a bid for the rest of the house.  

Here's the progress this week....


Guest Bedroom and 

Master Bed Room are all a very pale buttery yellow with white trim.

Drawers and

Doors and 

all trim in a clean white.

Living Room,

Dining Room and one bedroom all painted in this pretty SW Practical Beige with white trim.

The garage is packed with newly acquired pieces of furniture, ceiling fans, etc.

This vintage piece (LOVE) I purchase off of Craigs List 

as well as this blue piece.  The round table is for a nightstand in the MBR. It is Drexel - all wood. That is what I love about finding most old vintage pieces - they are all wood.

This pretty piece I found at an Estate Sale.  But, I waited until it went down to 75% off before I purchased it.  Again, an older piece that is so solid.

This will be the vanity in my tiny Master Bath.  I found this at the Flea Market last Saturday.  It had been completely refinished and is in wonderful shape.

This Baker's Rack I already owned.  Hoping I can use it in the hall bath.  The DR chairs are in the background.  Needless to say, I will be redoing all of the seats.

My LR and DR will be done in the tans and a light teal blue.  The guest bedroom (pale yellow) will be done with a red toile print.  The rest is all up in the air until I make some decisions.   

My precious little "Tinkerbells" yesterday after I picked them up.  They are so much fun.

Have been having some computer problems and a total lack of free time lately so will try to post more often.  Some days, I wonder if this was a sane idea to move after being in a home for 48 years.  But then, I've never been known for doing the logical thing.  LOL




  1. I have no idea if it is a logical thing to do or not, but it seems as though you are enjoying it, so that cannot be a bad thing can it!! xx

  2. Painting a whole house seems like a very daunting task! The colors look great. And I am drooling over all that furniture! Can't wait to see it in the house. :)

  3. I've got to get some painting done at my house too. I wish I could afford to hire someone! Lucky you! The furniture you showed makes me so jealous! what fabulous pieces you've acquired :-)
    big hugs,

  4. I would have probably hired a painter in the beginning. LOL I am not a painter and never will be. Like your choice of colors.
    Enjoy your evening.

  5. You are a wise woman, Judy. Painting is SO much work. I'd certainly rather see you enjoy the decorating process! It's coming along nicely. You have found yourself some really sweet pieces! Looking forward to seeing more updates! Blessings, Cindy

  6. I'm so glad you are not going to try to do it all yourself. You'll have it done so much quicker and be able to get things set up the way you want it. I'm so proud of you! Hugs, Diane

  7. Judy, the colors you picked are very nice and look terrific. I like all the furniture you purchased, you did good.
    The girls are darling. oh so cute.
    You are going to love everything when you get everything settled.

  8. Hi Judy, I love painters and electricians and plumbers and carpenters ... all the trades. You have a wonderful painter (and your master bedroom looks great too). Great finds waiting for their new home and transformations as needed. Such sweet little Tinkerbells. Thanks for including such a happy trio.

  9. Judy, the colors are so nice. Can't wait to see how you make this house yours!

  10. Your colors are nice and look at all of the beautiful pieces you get to decorate with and use in your new home. Looking forward to seeing more forward progress. Your painter has done a wonderful job.

    Your three little tinkerbells are precious!

  16. Hi Judy, love all the pieces you found to place in your new home. The wall color is gorgeous with the trim. I know it is going to be awesome when done. Your little Tinkerbells are adorable.
    Enjoy the weekend and fun designing your home. Merry Christmas xo

  17. I am still painting the guest bath (yes still) so I laughed so hard and so long when I read that you are planning to call a painting contractor! You have gathered some really lovely pieces and I know your new home is going to be a delight. Hang in there kid. I have faith in you!

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  18. It's looking good, Judy! I hate painting and we have to paint the spare bedroom and I'm not looking forward to it, so I understand....


  19. Judy,
    Loving all the colors for the rooms. Looking good. The girls are precious. Such cuties. Love all your vintage pieces you have collected for the new place. Happy times getting the new house to feel like home. Enjoy.

  20. I don't blame you one bit for hiring out to get your house painted - that is a ton of work! And it's looking so good. I love the colors you chose. That red buffet is to die for - great score. Love the other furniture, too. You will love the dresser as your bathroom vanity. My mom did that in her half bath and it looks fantastic. Your great-grands are so adorable!

  21. More power to you, Judy! You can do it!! Enjoy your children and grandkids and get their help when they are available. It is going to be lovely when you are finished, but take your time......thanks for the update!

  22. Looks the paint colors you selected too! Your grand babies are sooooo CUTE!!!!!
    Have a great weekend!!!!

  23. Those Tinkerbells are darling!!! I love the paint color choices. My walls are jealous!

  24. The paint colors are wonderful. I love it with the bright white trim. I can't wait to see your furniture pieces all done up. How fun, but exhausting, I'm sure. Keep us posted when you have time, I love following along!

  25. Wow you certainly are making progress...and I LOVE the furniture pieces you found! I love that buttery yellow, what's name? Your tinkerbells are precious! Are you ready for the party?

  26. I think this project is just what you needed. You are making fantastic progress.
