Fall decorating, Fun, Funky guest room! Newbie party started

First room in the house to have the Fall decorating makeover. 
Only item new is the owl pillow, how cute is this? Found that at Kirklands last week for $5.99.  
The coverlet was a find at World Market a few years back.  The colors make my heart sing!

Let me first show you the Spring Summer guest room...

Note the summery DIY art work...that too had a little makeover.
Painted the matte border inside with my ASCP Arles color,
then I lightly waxed the outer frame with dark wax.
I also removed the glass to avoid the glare...DUH! What took me so long to figure that out?



Little cutie pie here!

Bought this last year at Marshalls.

For details on the home made art work you can go

(today was an overcast kinda day)
Not happy with my pics and will get nicer ones when the sun be SHINING!

Let's get this NEWBIE party started!
Blogging 6 months or less and/or less than 100 followers.
Please turn off Word verification as it is a comment deterrent.
Would love for you to become a new friend/follower of mine.
Please visit a few other of the participants.
You are here to make new friends..hence the reason I started the Newbie party back in January.
It has been a great success to many who are looking to grow their blog, receive comments and make new friends.
Have fun!

Love the owl. It was 86 degrees here today...fall was written all over it. Or maybe it was tropical storm. Either way, it was not a bad day.

Debbie, the bedroom is too cute! Love the colors and the owl is a hoot! :-) Also, when I was trying to link to your newbie party something strange happened and it posted with just a portion of the wall.....OOPS! I tried again and got it right - just wanted to explain so I didn't look like a complete goofball! :-))I couldn't figure out how to delete the "mistake" post.

Debbie, what a great guest room for fall or all year long! I'm thinking I'll be shopping Kirkland's for that owl pillow, too. My granddaughter loves purple, too. Thanks for the Newbie Party as always.

I love what you did with the frames and removing the glass was a great idea! Mr. Owl is adorable! Love the color of the headboard. I have a headboard still waiting to be painted and I was thinking of an aquamarine kind of color. Should get it done before it's too cold to paint outdoors here!

Love the cute owl touches,Debbie. The owl pillow is soooo adorable and the Marshall owl is a darling... love how you changed the bedroom colors from spring to autumn... the colors work so well. Also that summer project with frames and burlap is looking wonderful on your wall... the orange burlap against the shabby frame creates such a beautiful contrast. You always make creative wonders! Thanks for sharing and for having us each week!~Poppy
