As some of you know, and are waiting for me to update you,
(I think I have DADD-Decorating Attention Deficit Disorder-it's called: life.)
we are getting our house ready to sell.
Starting with Miss S's room, back in September,
(where did that month go?)
I cleared out, patched and painted, with Miss A's help
(my younger daughter- she gets $5 an hour which she loves to spend on make-up)
this third bedroom on the third floor.
Our plan is to have this house ready to list in January 2012.
God may have other plans? Who knows!
We'd like to move to downtown Greenville, and into a bungalow or Craftsman-style home.

It seems like a long time away, but I counted 32 spaces that need staging.
This includes closets/hallways/porches/deck, so it will take awhile.
Here's what the room looked like when you last saw it.
I purged, donated and sold the paper lanterns and the headboard on Craigslist.
A few weeks later, it looked like this.
My goal is to have it look something-sorta-kinda-like-similar to this.
Here's what's happening in here today.
Sorry! Nothing is ironed.
I just threw the duvet over the comforter, and the pillows inside the shams.
And the chair needs a makeover, too, but I can't think about that yet.
That chair is stubborn.
And real life seldom looks like a page from the Pottery Barn catalog.
All three of these mirrors only cost $10.
And the lamp? Cheap cheap. See it here with my cloches.
I need y'all's opinions.
I wanna keep the armoire and the bedside table, but I am thinking about painting them.
I found these pieces from Pottery Barn, that I like.
Miss S' Armoire.
The Cynthia Chiffonier.
Miss S' Bedside Table.
And The Charlotte Bedside Table in Antique White or Antique Blue.
What if I attached a mirror on the door of the armoire,
and painted the armoire Antique White?
Which color for the bedside table?
H E L P !
Here's a tip you might like:
This is what I do to keep the paint from drying around the inside rim of the paint can.
I take a fat nail, and hammer holes around the inside rim.
The paint drains down into the can, and the lid no longer sticks when the paint dries.
What do you think?
I know y'all are great thinkers!
