An Empty Nester

Good morning dear friends.
I want to wish you all a Happy 2014!!
Do you have any New Year plans?

These past few days have been spent making bunnies for our upcoming shows.

Tonight is our annual New Years Eve auction.
Fun times and good food with our antique friends.

My son moved out and Bob and I are once again empty nesters.

So what do you do with an empty out-dated bedroom?
Why you remodel it of course!

This will be my biggest challenge.
What to do with these three windows.
Any suggestions?

Paneled walls...gone.
File cabinet...gone.
Linoleum floors...gone.
Who puts linoleum in their bedroom?
This house was once a summer cottage home.
With the sand from the river, 
it was easier to clean.

Bi- fold doors...definitely gone.
What prim bedroom has those?

Our New Year will begin with a major re-do.
I am happy..Bob maybe not so much. LOL

I will keep taking pics of the progress,
so I hope you all stay tuned.

This room will be entirely gutted.

We found the perfect bed already,
and currently trying to find an old door.
You think that being antique dealers we would have some stashed away.
Nope, Bob sold them all recently.

Happy New Year and
Bedroom Redux Blessings To All!



  1. Happy New Year Janice! Looks like it will be full of adventure and work.LOL! Can't wait to see your remodel.I have paneled walls and hate them.I would like to at least paint them but hubby flatly refuses. As far as the windows, could you shutter them with maybe a grapevine garland across the top? Blessings,Jen

  2. What fun, a New Years auction.....I agree with Jen, some grapevine would look good, I like to redo rooms.....Happy New Year Janice, Hugs Francine.

  3. Old boards and lift to open on a hook from the ceiling would be cool, or mabe old shutters.
    Can't wait to see your room completed.
    Happy New Year Janice and Bob Wish you the best!

  4. Wishing you and your family a new year filled to the brim with goodness and blessings Janice! How fun to have a clean slate in this bedroom. Can't wait to see what you do with it. I know it will be wonderful! Hugs, Lori

  5. I hope we get to see your bunnies soon. Happy New Year!!!!

  6. HAPPY NEW YEAR Janice. Can't wait to see the finished room. Hope you had a good time at the auction.
