Time to Say Goodbye

4.18.2013

Well, it is time to say goodbye.  It's been long enough and I am just over the whole thing. I'm not sure how many years it has even been anymore. I think at least three. It was a good run while it lasted and to tell you the truth I am surprised it lasted this long........




The nautical has got to go!!


2-14-10
I had you didn't I? No, I'm not going anywhere, but the nautical stuff in the guest room has left the room. Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

Of course this room had its fair share of changes while still staying with the nautical theme. The above photo was after I actually sewed some red ticking to the bottom of a pair of navy panels and added rope trim. I thought that was quite brilliant if I do say so.

Then in June of 2011 I replaced the framed vintage swimsuit over the bed with Mr. Savvy's old naval uniform and moved the framed swimsuit to the other side of the room.

Also in June this room was not safe anymore from my painting problem. I added a weathered finish to this lamp and that was only the beginning.

Cause apparently the lamp wasn't enough. I had to weather the armoire, too.

Then a year later I decided red would be better.

And lastly the cherry bed got painted white and distressed.

Then the new look with the bed painted white and the red checked drapes replacing the old drapes was revealed in July 2012.

It was fun decorating the room for Christmas.

and just a few more photos.......

This pillow is actually what started the whole nautical themed room after I ordered it because it was so cute.

I had lots of fabulous pillows in here.

Here is when I had red drapes in here.

A vintage quilt was added for fun.

So glad the red checked drapes worked in here after taking them out of the breakfast room.


So farewell nautical guest room. Farewell.

Another reveal coming soon!

  25. Kim you must have too much time on your hands! I do love the nautical--- I'm from St. Simon's --maybe that's why. I'd keep that room and find a friend who needs a rooom makeover. Love all you do.

  44. Hmmm...I think you should hold a contest and let us GUESS what your new theme is going to be. I KNEW you weren't leaving because some of us would be hauling butt down to your neck of the woods and tying you to your chair so you would keep blogging...well, of course we would put it on wheels so you could continue with your paint addiction!;>) xo Diana

    ReplyDelete

  74. Kim...it's Spring, so this is expected by all us creative, talented women. We always know there's something much better awaiting. Brava!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Dear Kim,
    You deff had me going! I was like, WHAT?! Makes a lot more sense getting tired of a room... I do that all the time. I guess that makes it good we are do-it-our-selfers, because otherwise that tendency would get majorly more expensive! ;)

    Love,
    Changin it up in NE

    ReplyDelete
  76. Please don’t do that again! What would we do without you Kim? You are our go to for how to....... Although I think this room is so gorgeous and interesting it will be fun to see your new reveal..........Don’t work to hard! Whew...........

  77. That's the problem when we buy one thing and do a theme around it when it's really not "us" to begin with. Is there a 12 step program for decorators addicted to shopping and change? lol

    ReplyDelete
  78. Kim, I truly felt a moment of PANIC when I was reading! You totally "got me" - Yikes! tee-hee :-) I can't wait to see your new guest room!! Exciting!! :-D

    ReplyDelete
  79. I was a bit worried when I saw that title! I clicked through so fast thinking 'Surely she isn't saying what it sounds like'!!!! Glad it's just the nautical theme although it is really cute!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Oh, but I love the nautical so much! Alas, change is good. I just sold my sofa, which I love and is still in great shape because I just need a change, so I completely understand!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Truth be told...I remember all those changes. I've been following along for quite a while...you were one of the first blogs I ever followed! It will be fun to see what changes you will make! Thanks again for fixing that thing with your blog! Don't know what happened, but whatever you did it worked! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  82. I also remember all the different transformation of the room and I can't wait to see what the new "them" will be.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Do not scare me like that. I think that is the problem with any themed room, we just tire of them more quickly. Looking forward to the new look.

  84. Awwww! I love the nautical theme but if it's time for a change, it's time for a change. Love the old Navy uniform! I have a picture of my father wearing one just like it! Can't wait to see the room's new look! Hugs, Leena

    ReplyDelete
  85. Nice to see the metamorphosis of the room over time. Thanks for sharing.
