Hi! I’m Joy from Thrifty Parsonage Living I have a creative/decorating blog where I talk about thrifty living via makeovers, DIY's and thrifty finds. I’m so excited to be here today while Grace and her family are away.
Grace asked me to write a post giving you three glimpses into my home including: The oldest thing in my home, the favorite thing I've made or made over and the favorite room in my house.
I'd love to start out by sharing the oldest and favorite thing I've made over in my home. My grandmother's cedar chest:...it's almost 100 years old! It was in very bad shape, and in need of great repair when I received it. Two legs were broken off, veneer chipped and lid detached. With my husband's help, this old heirloom was taken from trash to treasure!
Here's the treasure!
My largest and favorite makeover (and favorite room) would have to be our master bedroom makeover. This room was formerly my husband's office. It was very dark, and looked too much like an office...not a relaxing bedroom. Here are a few before and after photos.
Board and batten and new paint really gave the room a new look.
We also moved the bed to the opposite wall giving us more space in the room.
New DIY drop cloth curtains were added.
A little bit of rustic charm was added to room,
using my grandmother's old step ladder for a side table.
Many second hand and made over items were added
including these Ikea mirrors,
and other accessories.
Why is this my favorite room?
My husband and I love the beach; and I love how we've incorporated that into this room. The room is now a calm, serene and relaxing room that we can both enjoy!
Thanks for joining me here today, and to Grace for giving me the opportunity to join her on her wonderful blog!
