A little paint is an amazing thing...

The transformation that occurs when you paint a room is always amazing to me... way back in high school... er... circa 1972... I remember painting my bedroom a pretty apple green and painting the trim in my room stark white.. I loved it... and my dad just said... "it's you"... I've been transforming rooms with paint ever since...

and thank goodness that I married a man with the sweetest heart in the world... any hair-brained idea I come up with (moving my booth from the back to the front on a whim!)... he goes along with... and not only goes along... but helps me accomplish...

so remember this?Now, it looks like this... and this...
now looks like this...

The base painting is done... and the true Metamorphosis begins... My little band of fairies arrive Friday morning at 10 am. Crazy Candy, Tiny Terry and Loving Lili will help me transform this fresh white painted room into a place of ... well you'll just have to come back and see... We're busy as little bees down here in French Lique...
Metamorphosis Monday is hosted by one of my favorite decorating bloggers, Susan at Between Naps on the Porch... If you'd like to see more of Metamorphosis Monday participants, link here to visit Between Naps on the Porch...



and PS... I'm sooooooo far behind visiting for Silver Sunday and Pink Saturday... and now Met Monday... okay... I'm peddling as fast as I can... I want to see it all!

I wish I could be a little fairy too! I'd help!

Thank goodness that wallpaper/border thing is gone, right? Ugh *shudder*

Have a great week!

Yea! It looks great, Dixie. That is so sweet of your guy to help! That's a prince of man!

Can't wait to see all of your cool stuff in it. And I hope you sell lots and lots!

I'd love it if you'd send your little band of Fairies over to help me out a bid. I'm overwhelmed!

Love the change my friend. My favorite room had white and apple green floral wallpaper and a green ruffled bedspread. I was 16, thought I was the living end. Now I'm 51 and realize that all in all I was pretty cool! ahhahahah

Love to you~Rebecca
