Of course, this doesn't mean I have the bathroom finished, because I don't. I still need to do the counter top, hang a decorative black iron hanger for towels or clothes, find a suitable window treatment for the bathroom window, have sliding door repaired (yes, the painter broke it), as well as have the cabinet doors repaired (that he also broke) and find a replacement for the toilet paper holder (which is darkened-by-time brass). Then, I will actually be finished.
However, for now, the bedroom is finished and I'm so pleased with the way it all turned out.
I just finished repainting SD's old camp trunk that was ugly as sin. It used to be hidden in her closet, being used to store excess junk. I like it much better in black, situated at the end of the bed. The best part is that it's located right by my new craft closet, so I'll be able to hide my large and small containers of paint, etc.
Oh, and here's a picture of my new craft closet. I just love having everything in one place, all organized and easy to find. The excess is located in the next closet, inside our old Heywood-Wakefield dresser, which is also hidden away.
Also, I finally got the curtain tie backs up today, which was a rather major improvement to the look of the room.
Here's a picture of SD's camp trunk before I started on it. Let me just say that I had to do a huge amount of scraping and sanding before I could even begin to paint it, which was a necessary evil...
Oh, and I also still have to hang another item for the wall that displays the two Oriental hats, but first I need to spray paint it black, but it's really just an afterthought, to add more interest to the wall. It's not what you'd call an important element to the room, but it will make the wall less boring....
