Romantic Bedroom Part II

Oh my achy breaky back!
Yesterday my chalk paint finally arrived. This stuff is blowing off the shelves I tell you. It's wonderful that is why!
I would have started painting the second it came in, however, I had BUNCO last night and just could not do it.
BTW I won! First time ever....
Anyhow..I started first thing this morning.

During, I was a little concerned about this color covering. I will say the duck eggs blue seemed to have better coverage, but in the end this worked out, and I really love the color. I used cream which is a very pale yellow.

Sneak peak at the curtains..I bought these at World Market, they are pretty much the same ones I loved at Pottery barn, but the cost was 50.00 cheaper a panel, I bought these for 39.99 a panel, 96 inch.

This hour glass my husband bought for me while we were dating.

I heavily distressed this piece after it was dried and waxed.  I want our room to have that Paris/French shabby feel, It's getting there, more to come. I did my dresser too today, but you can't see that part just yet.
Thanks for popping over, and as always your sweet kind comments.
I appreciate your visits, I really do!

Woooow Debbie, that dresser looks amazing!!! I love the color! I really want to try the chalk paint but it's so expensive and I've only found it online. Where do you get yours?

Debbie- I LOVE that fabric for the curtains! Beautiful!!! And, I really like the way your little dresser looks. I have read pros and cons witht he chalk paint-some love it-some hate it. Is yours waxed, or are you waxing it? I like the fact that it doesn't get all dried out and skimover if yu don't get the top on it riht away...but I have not used it myself. Great job~ xxoo Diana

Thank you for sharing about the chalk paint. It's great hearing from those that have tried it and are willing to share how it worked out. The dresser looks the color.

I love the vignette on the dresser--such a romantic ambiance. That hour glass is to die for! I'd keep that man around for a long, long time. :)

Oooo, it looks sooo nice already. I can't wait to see the room all done: I hate waiting! :S What a difference the paint makes. I want to do EVERYTHING in my bedroom: it's all unmatching wood and sooooo outdated!! I love dreaming about it as I watch you get yours done! :)

Oh, and I love that hour glass your husband gave sweet!! My husband gave me a whale mug and a metalic rainbow type sea picture: it was HIDEOUS!! (Please, don't tell him I said that!) I told him I loved ocean stuff, so that's what he got...but it was so thoughtful...and he's gotten much better. Looks like your husband had nice taste from the start! :)

To get more info on the chalk paint Debbie uses, please see, and then go to and find the "stockist" nearest you to order. There are 24 yummy colors and each quart stretches 140-150 sq feet. So you see it really is not expensive once you consider that! AND you can mix colors, making even more AND best part don't sand, or strip or go right over what you already have. As Annie herself says, "we are busy women. We have families to raise, jobs to attend to, and we don't have time to wait for paint to dry". So now we can paint and have it done the same day, back in the room and do Bunco that night!!

Great buy on the curtains! And terrific job on the dresser.

1 really dumb question: Why the Chalk Paint? Is that not for chalk boards? Doesn't look like the dresser is for kids to write on.

Blogger Debbiedoos said...

Atticmag...I tried to leave a comment on your blog and also respond to your emai...difficult on both accounts, anyhow, it is not CHALKBOARD paint it is chalk paint and is all the rage now, if you read Miss Mustard seeds blog you will see how she started using it, and it has been a trickle down from there in blog land. The website is linked in my post. Thanks for stopping by, and thank you everyone else too!

Hi Debbie! I just went through and caught up on your last few posts. I missed your video, so I just finished watching it. Oh my gosh! it's fantastic!!! I love the out takes and your comment about blogger's butt!
You are soooo cute!!!!
Your bedroom looks wonderful.
My daughter hung a very simple, wire word over her bed...she formed it to say "forever".The wire is the guage of a wire hanger. She added just a few beads here and there to spice it up a bit.
It doesn't take away from the headboard, but adds a touch of romance and whimsy.
Whatever you decide...I'm sure it will look terrific.
Enjoy your weekend.

Sister, there is so much I want to say to you...First, I love this piece. You are doing such a phenomenal job of redoing furniture, I think it may have been your calling all along. Second, if I haven't said thank you recently for being such a nice and generous person, then I am a fool, and apologize. Thank you for being you, I love you!
