Something old is new again :)


For along time there was three stackable boxes that I used in the back of the closet to store stuff in. They are covered with fabric, and really in bad shape. I think I paid a dollar for all three at a yard sale.

In our new room I thought it would be fun to leave the fabric on the boxes and paint them white. Then find a few images that I liked and collage them on the newly painted boxes.

On this theme we continue the work on the loft. Something old is becoming new again.DSCN2730

New trim on all the windows.DSCN2735

Also the closet trim….



Storage doors on both sides of the room.

We are cold and it looks like it could snow at any moment. DSCN2762

Baseboards are done… now on to the painting and new hardware on doors. Then the carpet.

DSCN2740 I decided on a coco brown…it will be warm and easy care.

So we are coming down to the end of the remodel…but as you can see, we still have more to do.

I hope you are all getting excited about Thanksgiving. Love, Mary

I can see the room is coming together. It won't be long now. And I love those boxes! They look like something you bought at an expensive store. You're so creative.

Those boxes look fantastic. Like they came out of a boutique somewhere. Gorgeous. I can't wait to see you get moved into your new room. It is really coming along now- xo Diana

Mary, this loft room is going to be so fabulous. Your new old boxes are so excellent too.

Very clever of you making those boxes look so spiffy. I love them! Your room upstairs is starting to look like a new room.
