From Shabby Drab to Frenchy Fab!

I have been wanting to give my photography room a makeover for some time now and decided this past week to get to work on it. I love the outcome! I took it from Shabby Drab to French Fab! Originally it was pink and white shabby chic in style. While this worked for me 6 years ago it became outdated and I didn't enjoy the feeling of the room.

I am so pleased with the colors I chose and the way this room transformed into an opulent suite! Everything about it feels so warm and inviting. I was able to incorporate many of my basic items such as the original dresser, bed, and tables into this room simply by giving them a touch of paint, or redecorating them to fit in with the flow of the room. My dresser was original chippy white. I gave it a new coat of paint and glaze, added old mix matched hardware and waaa laaa! I'm in love with it!

The walls I applied 3 different earth tones colors of paint and slip slapped them mixing in pages from old books I love. The outcome was simply stunning!
Using things you have and transforming them into deeper, richer color tones helps to add to the ambiance of the room. I have many items listed in the shop that would help you to makeover your room into the suite of your dreams! Drop by our website today, I would love to hear from you!
