A sneak peek into my bedroom makeover




Hello everyone!
How are you?
I can't tell you how much I have missed all of you!
I first want to say thank you to everyone who left me such kind comments about my cupboard.
I really appreciate everyone who took the time to leave me such kind comments.
You all know how to make a girl feel special!

I am going to be away from my computer all of this week too.  My kids are in 4-H and we raise show steers, so I will be gone to the fair all week with my family!
So I just wanted to say hello to everyone and share a few pictures of my bedroom with all of you.
I will FINALLY be showing you pictures of my bedroom next week!
Yes it is actually finished, I am sorry it has taken me so long!






I am just going to show you a few glimpses of items in my room that I haven't shown you yet.







I hope you are all having a great week!
I miss you all!
Take Care,
Maria

Oh Maria,
It looks beautiful, can't wait to see more. How funny your husband's comment about rebuilding the house. I think all our hubby's have special things to do when Fifi's name enters the equation. Have fun with your kids! I was hoping to see you at the flea market this weekend, but maybe next time.

Anxiously awaiting pictures of your bedroom. Love your blog, and missed you. Good luck at fair and the steers. My niece and nephew were in 4H, I loved going to the different events and seeing all the things the kids had accomplished. Have fun.

Sweetie, you just killed me with that photo of the desk behind the orangerie mirror (or it's a wondow?). Anyway, you're genial!!! I'm not at all surprised that Fifi chose your amazing nest! Do what you have, enjoy the fair with your family and take some time for you too. I guess you need to relax a bit! I hope to hear you soon, in the meanwhile

A great kiss and taste this moment of success ;)

Your friend, Zaira xoxo

The little that you have shown us looks fabulous! I used to be in 4H, many long years ago. I raised a garden each year, but never won any prizes, I never understood that:o) I will be at the NorthWestWashington fair in a few weeks checking out all of the livestock that the youngsters have raised. Sooo much fun, I know you are having a good time with your family. Fairs are so wonderful.
Hugs, Cindy S

Great images and I love your bed.

Alexandra said...

It looks like a winterland fairytale bedroom. The rustic doors provide a lovely texture against the elegance of the chandeliers and the the stark white of the room. Was looking at some old window panes at an antique shop yesterday, but I'm quickly running out of room in this one bedroom apartment! :)
Have a wonderful day ~
Alexandra

helenreaddy said...

Wow! Your boudoir is just gorgeous! I love white and you have given me some ideas now, thanks! Do you think silver furniture will go with white? At the moment I have mirrored furniture but I just fancied a change. I love the rustic french furniture look! Thanks for sharing and inspiring :) x
