It's Show & Tell Friday over at Kelli's. If you'd like to participate, or see what other's are showing, just click on the photo above.
Back when I was pregnant with Mo, we lost our second to last ferret. With just Dudley left, we decided to redo the downstairs bedrooms. They had been a game/storage room and the ferret's room. Yes, with 9 ferrets they need their very own room. But, when all you have left is one blind, balding, old man ferret, a cage and a few hours of time out each night are plenty.
That's when it got exciting. We decided to paint both rooms, add trim, and in the case of the former ferret room, soon to be children's room we put in carpet (vinyl floor having been installed when we moved in).
Dana and I both wanted a dark grey color for our room. I tended toward the brown greys, he liked the more blue greys, but we finally agreed on this wall color, which was almost in the middle.
Now the dark walls make photography in our room difficult. But you will see that because it's a tri-level and we have a look-out basement, we also have built in ledges in all the downstairs rooms. This is perfect for the alarm, a fountain, and a ceramic vase my mother-in-law made for us. In between the two fans is an old photo that was hung in my grandparent's home. I don't know why, but I love it. So I display it whether it matches or not. The fan to the left is from an outdoor wedding, and to help guests from over-heating fans were provided.
This shot shows you our white ceiling. We did this in both the rooms. Well, I admit being pregnant, Dana did the work, but I helped cleaning the rollers. There was no way I was reaching that ceiling. On the wall opposite is another fan. This was brought back for my Grandma Sarah, and when she passed away, I received it.
Thank you for visiting! I will show the children's room, which happens to be just Mo's at this time, very soon. Be sure to come back next week for a very special celebration and giveaway!
