MORE OF THE HOME REFRESH




Alrighty then....today we have the last few pictures of Maria's home makeover or as I like to say it "for crying out loud....let's update this place"

Can I stretch out a project or what.....I am a professional "blog post stretcher".....

Yeah....blah blah blah.....get to it girl.

Before


 The dining room just needed some flowers....


I wrote about updating this room in 2011



This is the music room right off the den...there is a baby grand behind this sitting area...


We lightened it up...by replacing the brown curtains and pillows.


I scored these cream ready made curtains at Bed Bath and Beyond and added new pillows.  Of course flowers will make any room look special....


A little cheetah can be a game changer.



When they get bored she can play the piano and he can grab a guitar....

Are they like shoes....can't really have too many?

Remember I said they had the exterior painted...here is the before.


After

The body is Benjamin Moore Classic Gray

Here are the shutters Mike made!  Makes it look like a little french cottage.  The color is Benjamin Moore Brewster Gray HC 162.

You probably don't remember but here is the same  combination on a show house.... I almost used these colors...


I didn't do anything in this space but I wanted to show you the backyard....Mike made the swing bed.....

Have you guys gotten into the world cup?  Sunday nights game was so exciting.....I think I am hooked and will be watching US vs Germany on Thursday.

I bet everyone is getting ready for vacation over the 4th.  I'll just be here....holding down the fort....in the heat....hangin.

I am dying over the outside paint. I have seen so many brick houses lately, and this one is so lovely. Great job on the interiors...and the stretching.

So much charm! Those pillows were a great find.

I just love your sense of humor. You always make me laugh! :) I'm loving the shutters and checked out Benjamin Moore paint, but on the paint swatch it looks way darker that the pic. Did you reduce it to 50% by chance? Thanks for the inspiration!

Omg i collect autographed guitars & have been looking for wall hangers that don't look cheesy ---those are perfect!! Where can I purchase those? They look like forged metal. Thanks for the wonderful post!!

Your friends have a lovely home. I love the exterior colors and all the changes you made to freshen and brighten up the interiors.

I do so agree with you. Your roses look perfect in your aqua jars and look stunning with your white sofa and bright pillows. Absolutely lovely.

I think it is amazing how much you can make a room feel different with just pillows and flowers. Beautiful!! I haven't been watching the World Cup but overheard a lot of cheering from the other room on Sunday!

It looks gorgeous, Sherry. Love the extra touches you added and there is nothing quite like fresh flowers in a room. The shutters look amazing and adore the color!! Happy weekend!
