I’m finally taking steps to overhaul some rooms in my home, beginning with a few furniture updates. First, the master bedroom.

I was blessed to have the opportunity to both design and oversee the construction of my home back in the early 80’s, and have been well content until lately knowing certain areas just need a good updating. Unlike some, I have never been one to repaint or move furniture around just for the fun of it. It’s not that I don’t like change, I was just comfortable with the design and furniture. Then I went and bought a new living room set, and got the redecorating bug.

So stepping out, I begin with table lamps for the master bedroom. Here is a before shot. It started out what I like to call pea green. Not a bad color, but the master bedroom has blues in it, and the green just wouldn’t blend in.

I almost didn’t get a before shot because I was so excited to get started. First, I painted with two coats of Annie Sloan Aubusson Blue.

Then came the decision of what to do next.  I chose Annie Sloan Louis Blue, but did not give complete coats … almost hit and miss. Sorry if the pictures are a little too bright, I’m still learning the photography end of blog writing.

Then I added Annie Sloan Old White and distressed.
