It has been so much fun, I really hate to see it end but hopefully I will get asked back for the next challenge!  Now onto my reveal!  I wish my pictures were better, but I didn’t have my good camera with me and I haven’t had the opportunity to drive back, so you’ll have to forgive me! If you are just now coming to the party, click on week four, it has links to all the other weeks, to catch you up on all the fun we have been having doing the challenge!

The final results!!! Sorry the lamps are on!  See how nicely those cabinets look painted?  I told the client that I wanted her to paint her ceilings light blue when she paints again!  Benjamin Moore Paladium blue would be there perfect color for her.

The client had the metal table to the right of the sofa in 
her third floor so we swiped it for the family room!
Yes, we chose the blue velvet sofa!!! Isn’t it yummy?

I think the big mirror is perfect over it, don’t you?
These pics are a little distorted.  That is an 87″ sofa but it doesn’t 
look like it in these pictures!

The rug is perfect with the fabrics and I 
love the wooden blinds instead of drapery.
They add an aire of informality and warmth
to the room.

Those chairs were moved from her dining room. Also, wooden blinds were added here to replace the white blinds from above.
