Prim Room ~ Part One

I'm finally back w/pics of my little prim computer room that I mentioned awhile back. We finally finished hanging everything right before the big Christmas Eve party we had, so now I can show you the results.
You've had sneak peeks of a few things in this room already, so some of you might remember some of the decor from previous posts and some of it was in other parts of the house/ craft barn.
The sun was shining brightly the day I took these, so keep that in mind. This is the only window in the very small room which used to be our youngest son's bedroom. As you can see, it is painted a dark burgandy color up above, w/wallpaper and border down below that looks like weathered beadboard.
We took this burgandy chair out of the craft barn and it fit this corner nicely. Some of you might remember the stitched piece that my sweet friend Shazy sent me for my b'day last yr. I made it into a pillow to fit the chair, backing it w/a golden homespun fabric.

This is the wall adjacent to the door where you come in. I turned my flash off, so it wouldn't look so bright, but it turned it a bit dark ~sorry.
This might give you a better idea.......

Remember the plate I received in my Valentine swap recently? Well, there it is in the middle...way too dark, but you can see where it ended up....
The little stitchery on the right is one I designed and framed myself a few yrs. back. I even sold a pattern of it at one time. Those exact same words are in the wallpaper border, but I made the stitchery way before we ever bought it.

Some of you might remember this wool sheep wallhanging that I showed in the very beginning of blogging. I finally hung it on that star hanger ~ LOL

Here's how it all looks together........

My hubby found this lampshade on sale for only $9.99!!! I was thrilled to say the least!!!

Well, you'll have to come back to see the rest of the room, there's lots more to share!!
Here's your quote for today: "Each opportunity we seize holds an untold number of possibilities."

See ya back here soon!
Have a great week!

Love your computer room makeover Tanya!
Looks like a nice place to sit and relax and read a book too.
Hope the sun is shining today.

So far so lovely! The shade of red you used on the walls is really great! I'd love to use such a bold color!
Love Shazy's pillow she made you and what a hubs you've got to find that shade! It's fab!
Looking forward to next time!

Wow, that's like a prim haven right there. I love all of that! The wall paper border is really nice too. Where did you get it at? I'd like to put up something like that in one of my rooms someday...when I get the energy to wrestle with a couple dogs and do it - lol!

Thanks for linking up to the party, btw.

Cheers,
Tracy

I adore the sheep and the black pieces in this room! The dark red and black really come together in this room and looks great with the tan colors of the sheep, love it!
