BE MY GUEST!

THE SONS ROOM has had an overhaul…..IT is still THEIR room but I have changed it DRAMATICALLY………………

This is what I started with………..

Many years ago a very TALENTED GRAFFATTI ARTIST stayed with us from ITALY.

I let HIM do his THING………

On Nicholas’s side was SAN FRANCISCO.

On Kristopher’s side was EYGPT.

This was all done with SPRAY PAINT.

SORRY MATTEO………..DON”T LOOK. I have painted over it and in years to come it will be DISCOVERED!!Just like a FRESCO!

This has taken me years to get PERMISSION first from my BOYS then their FATHER.He had a problem with me painting the room………when I announced it would become PALACE ROYAL GREY they reneged on the deal………then I had a BIRTHDAY!Guess what I got for MY BIRTHDAY?

A Paint Set.Roller brush and pan from HOME DEPOIT!It took me a couple of months to gear up for the JOB as I had to empty the room first.

NOT an easy TASK!

Here you are the photos of my NEW GUEST ROOM……………Please come and visit…………..I have two twin beds available with private bathroom and shower………Doves cooing outside the french doors………side yard ALL YOURS!I am so pleased with my work and how it has all come together……………HELP ME CELEBRATE the NEW EUROPEAN ROOM………that will become my DRESSING ROOM if YOU all do not start to DESCEND UPON ME!

I like it THAT MUCH!I might just MOVE IN there!

This is how I started…….a Basic White Coat……….then a test of GREY.

I APPROVED my HUNCH and kept going………….

MY GUT told me FUSHIA for the beams……………I HESITATED only for a brief moment…………I had a consultation with THREE FRIENDS.Not that I would have LISTENED but they gave me the GO A HEAD……………..SCHIAPARELLI PINK wouldn’t you say?

Shall we call him THE DUKE?

The tassel hails from PARIS……a GIFT to me.It opens the ladder that takes one UP UP and to the LOFT.

Shall we call her THE DUCHESS?I am open to SUGGESTIONS!They have to have NAMES!The small Chandeliers again were found for a STEAL……..$75.00 for TWO.I have added MORE BIG CRYSTALS………the chain will be covered with a BEAUTIFUL cord cover……..GOLD I think.Unless, I can find a velvet that speaks to me!These chandeliers are your in BED reading lamps……you see you can turn them off without stepping out of the comfort of your BED!I will have FABULOUS BOOKS for you to READ.Sitting on the 18 CENTURY ITALIAN COFFER…….again I only bought this recently because I knew what they were worth and the FACT it came from ITALY.I saw one at the FALL ANTIQUE SHOW last month……..it was much smaller then mine and about $16,000.00.That made me FEEL REAL GOOD!I am a BARGIN SHOPPER………it would be VERY uncouth for me to tell YOU what I paid just know I got it for a SONG!

The painting is DONE…………..THANK ~ YOU BOYS I REALLY like how the room turned OUT.It’s still YOUR ROOM always will be………..still working on the small stuff………..stay tuned for the FINAL RESULT!

NAMES for the PAIR of PORTRAITS PLEASE!!!
