Guest room suite with a garden view

So it all began with chalk paint.
Thanks Miss Mustard Seed, you have created a chalkmonster out of me.
 I know you have all been waiting patiently for my room here it goes.
I am sure some of the snippets were not even making sense color wise.
Like where does orange come into play here?
So today the sun was shining! I could take some pictures finally. Sorry I am weird like that..I refuse to take pictures on a crappy day.
Blue has always been my favorite color, and I have no problem mixing different variations of blue together..
it works for me.
I do believe every room in your house should reflect
your personality.
This Mexican pottery light was in our first Florida home hanging over our kitchen table. I still adore it.
I hope when our guests come they feel the fun and energy we have to share.
I think they do, they keep coming back!
Color scheme, blues, lime green, yellow, orange, dash a white, wall  color by Restoration hardware, cappuccino. Lamp bought at World Market several years ago.
Wishing I had no glare on the pictures..I may remove the glass...
View out the window
I will be showing you the chair makeover soon, third one since I have had it.
Better shot of treatment on my chalk painted furniture.
Here is where the orange ties in, I bought this piece for the TV at World Market last year marked down on clearance.
I used two different stencil paint pens for this flower.
I had some left over fabric from the chair and thought it would look cute tied to the blue pillow...
And there you have it.
This room redo was all done on a small budget.
So the room makeover over was approximately $250.00

Resources I used:
Hobby Lobby
(stencil, fabric)
Chalk paint
TJ Maxx 
(Cynthia Rowley collection)
(Better Homes and gardens collections, sheets and picture frames)
You don't even have to waste your gas to go shopping, shop on line it's cheaper these days
some places even offer free shipping.
Wait just one is the very BEFORE bedroom
It was fun, and I still love the coverlet...I will use this one in the Fall and Winter months.
I will be linking to some fun parties later on.
Have to run out this evening for a school band meeting.
My son is leaving for a four day band event in Orlando.
I am so jealous!

Debbie, looks fan-tab-ulous! Love the paint colors and here in N. Illinois, bright cheery colors are always welcome! Gotta question though...Am I the only one who thinks $100 shipping for this magical chalk paint is a little expensive??? Is it worth it? Let me know your thoughts Debbie!

OH! still my heart! have transformed this already beautiful guest room into a work of art
Debbie I'm blown away that the cost of this fantastic make-over was only $250.
Love your color choices!
You'll have to beat your guest with a stick to get 'em to leave.

You "rock" with your creativity!

That room is so YOU! Vibrant, colorful and fun! I love all your special touches! It is perfect! Close that one window to get the glare off your pictures and you should be good to go! I don't think it looks bad at all. Girl, I have to get you to shooting manually so you can shut all the windows! :-)
