For those of you who have been following the drama
This is the Before shot, when the room was still a junk-filled garage:
And TaDa!!! Here’s the After:
You can’t see my curtains well but they are Pottery Barn look-a-likes from JC Penney’s. And I do mean exact replicas for a 1/10th of the price. Literally. I wanted something that would work with our beloved Georgia Bulldogs without going all out and painting the parsonage walls Sic Em Dawg Red. We don’t have any art yet but you’ll be glad to know Ebay and I kissed and made up. We found a sports photographer who is selling disks of excellent action photos of the Bulldogs – particularly our favorites Knowshon Moreno and Matthew Stafford. We are having some of the coolest ones blown into posters to hang in black frames which will coordinate with the black entertainment center. How’d you like that whole coordinate thang? HGTV’s got nothing on mine and Luke’s mad decorating skillz. I promise you he’s the only manly man you’ll ever meet who doesn’t think a focal point is what he sees through his rifle scope.
I personally believe submission is a beautiful thing, especially when it keeps me from doing manual labor that hinders my ability to walk properly for several days.
Can someone tell me how I got from room decorating to Elektra? There’s no way to recover from here people so I’ll simply bid you a Happy Thursday.
Updated: A few of you have acted shocked our church would let us redecorate/remodel the parsonage – as well you should be! We’ve been other places where this would not have been possible. I feel it necessary to thank our congregation again for allowing us to make this house our home and also for the men who finished in the garage for the simple fact they love my children and wanted them to have this extra space. We belong to the most wonderful fellowship and are forever grateful for all they do for our family!
