I am so proud to post her Makeover for you all to see. It really is a Miraculous Transformation.
I'm adding what she has to say about this contest win and process.. There are also caption under her photos on the RMS link.. On the Designers link you'll find out about Suzanne winning the makeover. Since all that is in different writing i wont bore ya'll with alot of text from me, except to say what a beautiful room is it and how happy I am for her.... Congrats Suzanne on your win and Kudo's for all the hard work you and your hubby did to make this all come together...
I'm joining Susan @ Between Naps On The Porch for Metamorphosis Monday
In her own words- below
"I’ve always wanted the help of a professional designer and my dream came true when I WON a bedroom makeover from Susan Taylor of Black-eyed Susan’s in Yardley, PA. I had been visiting her store and following her blog for a while and grew to love her style. She spent a lot of her (free) time w/ me giving me ideas for other projects in my first house when I would walk in there armed w/ photos and swatches. Then one day while shopping in there, I bought a ticket to win a makeover! Redoing my bedroom wasn’t first on my list of to-do’s…until I bought that raffle ticket and won it. Though she was willing to change which room we tackled (my living room is still unfurnished!), I thought it best to stick with what I won…the “bedroom” makeover. Oh, she threw in the master bath design, too…which was a nice surprise on top of it all. (And a necessity. Couldn’t leave that room w/ out even a coat of paint on the walls, could we?)
I'll be blogging her bath in a seperate post..
Being still so indecisive about what I wanted, I spent countless hours gathering inspiration pictures from blogs and from the members on the HGTV message boards (without telling them, except a select few, why) before it finally clicked…there was one home in Susan’s portfolio that I couldn’t stop thinking about and looking at. I asked for that color palette and we ran w/ it.
The prize included her design services, and painting. We ,my husband and I, did a lot of the work ourselves: painting furniture, etc. – I found some things in consignment and antique shops, craigslist and e-bay..Thanks very much to my HGTV PM buddies who watched a lot of the progress and special thanks to Sonny for making my photos look the best that they could be. "
And now for the best part~~ the photos.. When you go to the link I'm posting you'll see paint color she used and where she answered other questions you might like to know...
Here are some links for more photos and Suzanne's own captions.. She also answered many question for folks on RMS as to which items she purchased and from what sourse. Her paint colors is also there..
