First of all, I never really said thank you for the wonderful response to the whole design consulting thing.
It was something I was never sure I was ready for.
Designing a room for someone else and trying to put yourself in their shoes and determine what they like can be a little tricky. But I’ve had a little more practice and I love a good before and after and the process is so much fun that I was ready to jump into the deep end. I’m excited and I can’t wait to partner with everyone who e-mailed me. So to get ready, I thought I’d start with a true design challenge. Making over a room for someone with a little bit of a design opinion wrapped up with a smile and a lot of helpful suggestions.
My mother. 🙂
Here’s where we started.
This is what my mother’s dining room looked like a mere 48 hours ago. She wanted to keep the sideboard and the dining table and chairs (and don’t worry, I didn’t paint any of it). It was too pretty and too antique and full of too much character to paint.
But everything else?
Out with the old and in with the new.
With a whole lot of blue and white with extra bling.
I’m knee-deep in reworking everything and I’ll have the room ready to show you on Thursday. But in the meantime, here’s a little sneak peek of the progress so far.
I’ll be back tomorrow with the whole before and after.
But now I have to go.
I think I hear my mother calling my name. 🙂
