I was going to wait.
The piece of art I’d ordered will be another two weeks and until that arrives, it won’t be quite complete. However, while picking up accessories at Homesense today I heard “shouldn’t you be home reupholstering chairs and taking pictures so we can finally see this room!”
A reader…Penny…stopped to tell me how much she loved my blog and how she couldn’t wait to finally see the results of this project.
So…here it is…
Thanks to Michelle Muir at Silk Purse Decor for all of your help! AND…for giving me the beautiful chairs that have finally found a home.
To Sarah…for painting and for being such a wonderful friend for so many years.
To my non-painting girlfriends…for listening to me day in and day out while I tackled this project!
To Spiderman…thanks for helping to carry the armoire into the house and for helping me beat the legs off the bottom so it sits on the floor.
Bones…for painting the legs of the table over and over and over again!
The lady from Bishop’s Falls who works at Wicker Emporium @ Bedford Commons…thanks for helping me stuff that big coffee table into my small car!
Carmel at Home Depot…for helping me find the shiniest, glossiest, see-your-face-in-it, white paint I could find!
The numerous folks who posted items on Kijiji who received my inquiries…especially the two who sold me the fabulous pieces I was able to repurpose!
But mostly…to my amazing, remarkable, ever-supportive, gracious and loving parents who gave me this entire project as my “graduation gift.” I thank them from the bottom of my heart! I can’t wait for them to arrive home from vacation so they can see what I’ve done.
The Curtains are Open…and The Drawing Room is officially ready for business.
(Side note…I need a new company name! The Drawing Room Gallery is the beautiful gallery of the works of Michael Doyle @ www.thedrawingroomgallery.com Check out his stuff…I’ve been an admirer of his Argyle Street painting for quite some time!)
(Side, side note…doing a name search via a Mac computer does not work with the Access Nova Scotia system. They apologized when I got around to registering the name that never showed up anywhere. Had I used a PC…)
(Another side note that I don’t want to write side, side side note…but seems I already did. If you’ve a suggestion for a company name that somehow brands Curtains are Open with my graphic/web design/writing…throw me your ideas!)
(Final update…new company name is Drawbridge Creative.)
