One thing leads to another, then to another, then....

Ok, so last time I left you I showed you three paint samples, one of which I chose to repaint my bedroom.....again! :)

I loved them all....ALOT
I did want to go lighter and a bit softer so for those of you that guessed
Shoreline Mist
you are correct!!!
Sorry, I don't have anything to give you...
hint hint.. :)

Anyway, the painting is all done but if you know me, you know that I just can't stop there.

I have been inspired by some of the pictures below and have always wanted one of these in my bedroom.

I am pretty sure you can tell from the pictures what "it" is that I am talking about.

However, you must think on a smaller scale and way smaller budget.



So this weekend I enlisted hubby to help me with this little project
and once again I am pretty much flying by the seat of pants on this one
hopefully it will all work out!

Fingers crossed!! :)

I wanted to thank my sweet friend Deborah over at With All My Heart...Deborah for featuring my daughters room in a way that just melted my heart and seriously made me cry, smile, laugh and swoon all at the same time!!
Thank you do much sweetie for for your friendship, love and inspiration!!
Love you so!!!

I also wanted to let you know about a little giveaway that Anne over at Bird/Like is having.
It is her 50th follower giveaway!
She is so sweet and so talented and her blog is so full of inspiration!
This is what she is giving away,
a beautiful hand painted plaque with this design on it!!

If you have not yet, click on the image below and go say hi and enter to win!!

Anne said...

Michelle, you are the best! Thank you so much for posting about my giveaway. and about your bedroom... that color is lovely, and it looks like it will be similar to the Coastal Living picture. Which is the room I like best -- the seagrass element is perfect. Can't wait to see the final result!

Darling Michelle! Oh everything is looking so marvelous chez toi...I TOO WAS BURIED in white and gray paint today! WE still have so much to do before we can really live in our rooms. My husband needs to move out of my harp studio but he was not able to get to every detail today. This is going to take longer than I thought, but we are having a blast! LOOKS LIKE YOU ARE TOO! Thank you love, for visiting me today! HAVE FUN!! Anita

You are a decorating machine Michelle! I think I would need to take at least 6 months off after all that you did to your daughter's room! :-) But you are on a roll and I can't wait to see how things turn out in your there going to be a new place to hang stockings??? :-)

Brenda Kula said...

Yep, a fireplace in the bedroom would be nice right now! I'm assuming that's what you are yearning for. Your redo of your daughter's room was spectacular!

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

Love the color! Hmmm....a 4 poster bed, a fireplace....I'm guessing ????

Heaven's Walk - said...

Uh-uh....a faux fireplace, right? Am I right?? lol! And I would not put it past you to throw in a 4-poster bed just for good measure. lol! The color you chose is soo pretty, Michelle. Hope you'll have befores and afters to show us. Don't work too hard this weekend, girlie. Have some fun! ♥

I love, love, love the color you chose, it's so calm and soothing looking and of course beachy! OOH a fireplace, I'm so jealous! And the re-do of your daughter's room was perfect and so deserving of all the attention! You should send it to Better After blog, she would love it!

Kat :) said...

Love the color you chose. I also love your inspiration pics and can't wait to see what it is you are bringing into your bedroom redecor. Is it the fireplace? I would so love a fireplace in my room, but no way that will happen. Hope you have a great weekend. P.S. I saw what Deborah posted, it was so sweet.

Stormy said...

I can't wait to see the finished room ~.~

I'm sure it's going to be gorgeous!

I also LOVE the paint color!

Simone @ Doberman's by the Sea said...

Hi Michelle, I'm just now getting around to doing some blog rounds I am way behind. First let me say I love your new look! And I love the paint colors you picked. Great project as well! Have a good day.

kerrie of sea cottage said...

Ooooh, I like your new blog banner and font! I need to figure out how to make a signiture...Kristin of My Uncommon Slice Of Suburbia gave instructions but I haven't figured it out yet! Are you left handed? I am, and your new font is slanted like how a left-handed person tends to write. Well, I wanted to let you know that I have featured you for my Seaside Sundays...come take a peek! ox

Vicki said...

Love all the inspiration photos. Can't wait to see what you are up to!

Deborah said...

Our bedroom is actually my favourite room in our home...a sanctuary...
I love the ceiling design and fireplace in the 1st photo! In the 2nd I adore the bed, romantic bedposts, beachy rug, window, deck and view, the 3rd photo would be the fireplace, mirror and the adjoining bathroom~gorgeous, the 4th photo the fireplace and the shape of the window and rod, and the 5th photo, the mantel (looks similar to the one my Dad made me :) the gorgeous dark wood floors, the painting, and the oh-so-lovely comforter..I love it!!!
Also thanks so much for introducing me to Anne!
I went to visit her this morning :)
I know that whatever you decide to do, it'll be gorgeous, as nice that hubby is helping you..have fun hunny!

Love of the Sea said...

I love all three - but Tropical Mist. That is the one I thought you would pick! Can't wait to see how it comes out.

Lara from air kiss said...

Hi Michelle,
I love the mantel and mirror in the Erik Johnson photo. Good choice with the paint! I would've chose that one - light and airy!! Enjoy the rest of the weekend.. hopefully no more snowfall.

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

You have an amazing guy there. I'm pretty sure my husband would be having a fit if I wanted to paint again so soon.
I look forward to seeing your room :-)
Btw, I'm really out of the loop on this one, I had to look up Chris Isaak, although I did know who Hilary Swank is, and you do look like her. I know who Herman Munster is too...I once went on a date with his son Eddie...seriously :-) I'm old my friend, I'm old!

Beach said...

I love that Tropical Surf colour. And the name too! Great blog. xx

Libbie said...

Okay..that is it...I am packing my bags & moving in with you! Your inspiation rooms are dreamy!!! I can hardly stand the suspense! Hopefully you got a lot done this weekend! It is nicer to have the work behind ya! :)

Sally Lee by the Sea said...

I'm sure the finished room will be sublime. The inspiration photos you have picked out are all so dreamy.

Have a lovely week, Michelle :O)

Love the color you chose's so soft and pretty! Glad I'm not the only one that wants to repaint a room so soon! Can't wait to see your "new" bedroom! ~Deb~

Val said...

I love your images and color choice!! Happy Monday, Michelle!!

Confessions of a Plate Addict said...

Ooooh...I know! Pick me! Pick me! lol A fireplace! I actually had one in my bedroom years ago when we lived in an old Victorian and it was so nice! You will love it! Love the wall color, too! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

Hi Michelle,

How do you find the energy to decorate a new room? You amaze me!!

It takes me MONTHS to work up to decorating a room - in fact, we almost always get people in now (much better for my marriage!!).


Patti's Artful Design said...

Hi can't lose with any of those colors for your bedroom....all so-o serene and lovely! And...speaking of lovely...what a wonderful decorating job you did with your daughter's room! How "magical" for her!
Thank you for stopping by. It is always so good to hear from you! Have a great day!

Kelle Dame said...

I can't wait to see what you've been up to! These inspirational images are so elegant and comfortable looking!
Thanks for the link to the giveaway! Love those!
Have a great day!

Bella said...

Girl, you are out of control,,,, where do you get so much energy???? I sooooo wish that I could finish even one project I have on my list, and here you are a new project every weekend. :)

Maybe the trick is getting snowed in, lol. I love all the shoutouts you gave today, I checked out both blogs, and they are sweet as can be!!!

Many hugs, and I would love to learn how to do a small scale, budget friendly fireplace, since that seems to be the most popular guess, he he.


Bella :)

Bella said...

Oh and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new font, and new header you did. First, whats the font, and from where???

Second, I would love to see your blog button incorporate that new headboard,,, I'm sure you can come up with something, it's just to beautiful. Also, what did you do to the photo to make it look all old, like that,,, it's sooooooo pretty!!!!

Amy R. said...
