Avery's Room Part II

My shopping radar proved to be faithful yet once again. We went to Lowe's the other day for something for the yard and I thought that I would go and browse through the lighting section really quick. And there it was on clearance for $37, marked down from $180! Needless to say I was very excited! I begged the hubby for it and marched it to the check out!
I have been looking for a chandeleir for my daughter's room for some time and haven't found anything for less than $100! So this was a happy day for me! It wasn't exactly what I wanted, but I knew I could change that!
I don't know if you can tell in this picture or not, but the fixture is cream. I wanted white. And the shades are a bit ugly, but I figured I could change that too!


I painted the whole thing white with a stipple brush, decided to take off the shades, and sewed a long strip of material to cover the chain. I am quite happy with the results! It makes her room look so cute!
AFTER:Here is a cloese up of the chain cover

Close up of the detail!

More detail!

Before the flowers were taken off! Yucky!

Much better! I may reuse them and put pink flowers all over the whole shade. Or maybe just some trim on the top and bottom of the shade.

To Paint or Not to Paint

I have been deciding for quite some time if I should paint my master bath or not! The first two pictures below are of a master bath in a model home that I really liked. The last two are of my bathroom. The tile, trim and cabinet color is similar to mine and I really like the wall color. So, since I can't decide on what to do I need your help!
