One Room is Finally Presentable

One room down, 8 to go. Well, almost down. I still have a cork board to make with our 19,000 wine corks, but at least it looks finished, aside from an open spot on the wall waiting to be occupied by the cork board.

It started out with dingy white walls, and those horrible 80s vertical blinds. I painted it a soft blue, hung some frames, and finally, the piece de resistance: the window and closet "mistreatment", inspired by the Nester at Nesting Place. Maybe she'll come check out my first attempt :)

I don't have any "before" pics which is a bummer, but at least I took some of the after!

And, boy, is that glue gun handy!

    Oh my freak! You should be so proud of yourself! I love the mistreatments, love the furniture--esp. that desk and love that you even mistreated your closet!

    Thank you for sharing!

    Oh, in a few weeks we are gonna do a mistreatment carnival where we all link up and show mistreatments so this will be a great addition!

    heart you!

  4. I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who mistreated the closet. I find I have, or at least feel, that I have more space to access all of the junk!
