From Boring to NOT with a bit of Color

One room in my home is called the ‘Nonnie Room”. The purpose for this room is ME and my grandkids.
The kids toys, dress ups, books and such are located in the suitcases and in an unpictured cedar chest and dresser. The room WAS cute enough but it just did not reflect NONNIE much.  So I put ME into it.First I painted the walls.  I originally wanted PURPLE and then talked myself down to a glazed purple. I am not happy with it. 😦 But after glazing it all, ceiling included, I thought I would learn to love it.  I have not. It takes on different colors through out the day. Purple, to fushia, to pink to red. I think I will go back and do a couple of the walls purple someday.  I bought the paint.

The reason for just a couple of walls going purple isMy giant poppies.  I don’t know why, but I wanted poppies. Big uns.

Ashton, one of my daughter in laws, reworked a room and allowed me to purchase my favorite couch of all time from her, at a GREAT price. Which really is the need for RED poppies and the purple walls in the first place!

The buffet/entertainment center/toybox used to be dresser got dressed up. I could not find any knobs I liked, so I tied on giant buttons instead. (something is under the ‘toybox’ I must go look after I post)

More toy storage needed some work:Mom’s tapestry rocker felt just right but did not look like Nonnie. I fixed that though.I It is still needing something- I will be inspired someday.  I revamped the cedar chest with a new top , replace rug with the perfect find fromTuesday morning, a purchase of a coveted chair from a friend, and some curtains from Amazon, move a grandfather clock, win a giant frog, buy giant flowers from Hobby Lobby, and…..

Voila!

The Nonnie Room.
