Guest Bedroom Done

Finally finished the guest bedroom redo.

Tilda thinks her new bed is the best thing ever!


I am so glad it is finally done. I still have a couple things I need to organize in there but they are small things that I am not stressing about. 

If you missed the previous posts on this room you can find them below:

Cargo Destination Gorgeous

Me and my friend Sherri were at Kohls yesterday and found this little gem on sale for $10.00 plus we both had Kohls cash so essentially it was free.

The only issue is I could not find hardly any swatches to know if it was even worth the ten bucks.

So when I got home I immediately cracked it open and did a swatch fest of the whole thing I was like meh.

This is just straight out of the box with no primer. The bottom 2 rows are very pretty so I would definitely pay $10, (or free in our case with the Kohls cash), but I would not pay $25.

I decided to break out one of my eye primers and test it even further.

It does have very pretty packaging!

Blushes (although I would call the second one a bronzy highlight type shade).

4 lip glosses which are very shear to kinda of non existent which was a bit of a bummer but you can build a little. Thinking smile

I hope that helps anyone out and about shopping this weekend or if you are wanting to spend your Kohls cash and run across this palette.

Have a great Saturday!! Red lips

New Project With Shabby Paints

I started painting this last weekend.

This thing is a beast and I have never liked the faux oak look but it’s functional so I did not want to get rid of it.

I did some research on chalk paint and from what I found Shabby Paints was the easiest to use with no sanding or buffing and  the top coat was easy peasy to use. So I found a local store that sold it and started my project this past Saturday.

My intentions were to paint the outside Saturday and then paint the inside Sunday but it was going so well I did two coats on the outside and one coat on the inside Saturday. I was regretting that Saturday night when my body was rebelling against me. Crying face

Sunday I woke up and started bright and early to finish the inside. I did the next coat and then the reVax clear coat and was done by noon.

I was originally going to paint the whole inside but decided I would let this cure for a few days and paint the back of the inside with some buffalo brown and add a little brown bronze shimmer mixed in it to make it pop.

I am feeling a little crummy today so I will have to wait for the last of this project to start. Sick smile But I will show you as soon as it is all done.
