To Grandmothers House We Go

Here are some pictures from a 2 Room Make-Over I did a while back. The rooms are at one of my very favorite clients house, and they are her "Grandkid Rooms." She didn't want them to be too girly (even though right now she has granddaughters) and she wanted me to use the old red bed and the new red chair that she already had. Since I have been lucky enough to do the rest of her house, I knew that her favorite color is red, so I knew I would use lots of that color, but I also wanted some bright and cheery things for the kids.... So this is what I came up with:
The Bedroom

My client is a personal chef, and one of the best cooks I know, so I decided it would be fun to go with a "Sweet Shoppe" theme for the playroom... My friend Jeanetta did the 3 original artwork pieces you see hanging on the walls.
The Playroom

Over the next few weeks I will posting a few little tutorials about a few of the projects that I did in these rooms to save on time and money, so stay tuned!! Oh, and if you have any questions about resources or items let me know - I will be happy to answer!


  1. Oh my goodness! I love everything about these spaces! You are so very talented. The lamps shades are great - the ribbon woven through the one and the curtain clips/cookie cutters on the other. Fun!

  2. These rooms are FABULOUS! I love that oyou framed the Poky Little Puppy book! I may have to do that for my son's room. I'm wanting to decorate his room in vintage toys. Thanks for sharing these!

  3. Oh how pretty. Love the reds--really all the colors are just yummy.

    The metal bed is wonderful--my daughter has a similar one, except is is rounded on the top.
