Bloggers without borders:  Episode 2 –

Accessories for the Makeover

Episode 1 here:  Painting Project

Inspiration for stripes from The Lettered Cottage:

The Lettered Cottage

I’ve been pinning inspiration: here

Hopefully by the the next post I will have one paint color done.

This week I’ve been working on the accessories.  I have not bought anything new and I don’t plan on it.  Not even paint, I have some left over from some of the other rooms 🙂  This should be a no-cost makeover!


The paint colors are in the gray family, so I decided to tone down the orange in this piece.  I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Country Grey over the cooper color and dry brushed the raised area.

I think this will look much better with the new colors.

No changes needed for this picture, I think it will be perfect.

Box to store the necessities in the half bath.
