Change is good!!!

Our Bed and Breakfast has 4 theme rooms, 2 of which are dedicated to local charities.  

If you know me well, then you  know I have a passion for 3 things in life the first being Sea Glass, second is change and the third is taking pictures…don’t let me keep you waiting.

Our Sea Glass Room

First the colour of paint was chosen from a piece of seaglass – but you knew that right?

The head board is a door from the restore in Charlottetown, oh and by the way the restore is the organization we will be sponsoring.  A door? I know right! anyway it will become a seaglass headboard once it is covered…..I have to wait though as we have guests coming in this newly redecorated room tomorrow for 5 days.  Then I can finish the room.  Every 5 years or so we switch up the not for profit organization and re-decorate the room. This was just too much fun and I have to share with you how amazing this this is.

Next a purchase of a mirror from Wal-mart for $9.98 and using  7800 bond and a few hours, voila.

This night table will have a sea glass mosaic on top. For now I made a  sea glass drawer pull. The comforter a $17.88 frugal find from Wal-mart. The lamp shade and curtains all match nicely with the beige, white and sea foam green.

I love this drawer pull.  I needed a flat drawer pull and the only one I could find was at Home Depot and it wasn’t for sale but display.  When I told the guys my dilema of being short just one pull, so they got a screwdriver and took the display off for me, how sweet is that?

The lamp comes from Dollar General (only in the US) for $15 and we took it apart and filled it with seaglass 

This shelf has been around for awhile and it just fit perfectly and holds dishes of seaglass, a book, and I’ll have to add a bit more, perhaps cover up that heart with a big hunk of seaglass, in 5 or so days though.

This little shelf was a good find from Nova Scotia on one of our ventures looking for sea glass.  I purchased it about 6 years ago and had it up behind the door at the old house. The drawers open and you can hid little stuff in them. I figure the hooks are where guests can hang their towels. The dish of sea glass on top is mixed colour and there for the taking. The two candle holders come from Sears and the colour jumped off the shelf and said “buy me” for only $1.99 each.

I  framed one of my sea glass pendants as a reminder I have sea glass for sale in the gift shop. This piece is  $46 and displays nicely in this dollar store shadow box.

The single bed across the room

 These letters spell the obvious, “SEA GLASS”  however when I was painting them (to hang up later) I made an additional 19 words from this one word.  Grandpa only made 15 words, wooooohooooo for me.  How many words can you make from these letters? Without using the scrabble tool on the computer.

And I can’t go away without showing you how the room looked during and before the renovations.

This closet was just taking up too much room so out it came leaving a big mess of the walls. 

Grandpa leaves the puttying and puttering to me so I got to sit on this chair until it was time for me to take over

This is what the room looked like when we had donations going to the Breast Cancer Society over the past 5 years.

Well we are ready for the season and our guests tomorrow. Note to self, “deadlines have a way of making things happen.”

P.S. We started this renovation and I asked grandpa if he took the room off line and he said, “yes.”  On March 24 I got an email for a reservation for 5 days coming on March 27.  

Hope you enjoyed!
