Stencil project painting furniture

That's what he said! He meaning the hubster. I said don't worry I am not going to stencil the entertainment center...oh but wait that is a thought.
Not sure if I have ever mentioned that at one time years ago, my dear loving Grandfather lived with Mike and I.  He moved from Buffalo to Florida with us in 1997. I was very close with him, and really could not see my life without him there with me.
Gramp had a small bedroom and needed some new furniture.  We only bought a few pieces and I still have them. They are in great shape, but at this point a little outdated, and the one piece is tucked away in Jack's closet for storage.

The entire time I was doing this piece, I was thinking of my Gramp, he would have loved it, and said that's my Doo's.
He is the one after all that gave me that Debbiedoos nickname you know.
I suppose these pillows were my inspiration, and I never even knew it.
The boys like the new look....and so do I. Lamp is from the 1940's era.
A few other you can see behind the couch, this is a piece we bought years ago at Pier was someplace else in our home, and I will show you soon what we replaced it with.
Duh, forgot to show you the before....I had painted the top and knobs black a few years ago.  I may pick up some fun knobs, if I see some.

This clock was recently moved as well....this was over the couch, with two pics of the boys.

As always - too cute. I am really loving the curtains and the flow of your color palate. We have a guest room upstairs that REALLY needs some love so I am thinking I may have to steal some of your ideas... of course I am asking permission {wink}.

Loved the story too! Thanks for always keeping your blog so fresh and giving us great ideas... love it!

I love the tabletop all stenciled up and cute! The whole room looks very pulled together.

I think it's wonderful that you had your grandpa live with you. You must have a lot of precious memories of him.

Hi Debbie! That was so neat to hear about your grampa and how you got your nickname! I never really knew my grandfathers and I absolutely miss having had that in my life. I just love the makeover of that piece and seeing that lamp again made me covet it once more! :-)

Looks great! Aren't we lucky to have such wonderful, warm memories of our grandparents to treasure? My grandmother, "Mama", was the most incredible person and I always wanted to live with her. She passed away in the 60's and I still think of her all the time.

I know your boys are going to enjoy this room.
