FROM CHAOS TO BEAUTY

Recently, I wrote in my column in The Catholic Observer  about how my husband, John, and I have been re-doing our bedroom. It began with talk of washing our walls and led to picking out “convivial yellow” as our wall color.

THE OLD GREENCOLOR GETTING PREPPED FOR PAINTING

And three coats of paint later — all done lovingly by John — the walls were transformed

Of course, you might notice the window treatments!! Yes, those are pieces of cardboard in the window.

It’s still a work in progress but so many good things have come from this initial “mess.”

We cleaned our closets and donated bags of clothes. John and our daughter Elizabeth built new shelves for the closet.

LEARNING THE TOOLS OF THE TRADE

I especially appreciate John’s eye for detail and how he uses his skills and creativity to bring things together. And all the while he is having fun —

THE PLAID MIGHT COME BACK IN STYLE

even when finding an old jacket from high school.

We haven’t quite finished but new carpeting and the rearranging of our furniture have given new life to an old room. I love the results and know that the mess was worth it.

NICE CLEAN NEW CARPET
IT FEELS LIKE A HOTEL SUITE
