Mom’s Spare Room- a Christmas Gift

moms l side


My mom has always been there to support me…and this is my old teenage room at their home in Ucluelet. Last Christmas I gave her a rendering of her spare room, and when she was away on holidays, I came and did a redo to match. It’s a budget job, but it brought tears to her eyes; something I will always remember. My dad said it looked like the homes section of the Sun, and my mom said she didn’t want to use it, it looked so nice. I love my parents!

My sister and I went to Norwoods for dinner and had some great wine…and her dog Bailey was part of the weekend too. Also, there are some pictures of the progress and before shots too…headboard is IKEA, matelassé set is Homesense and vase is from Superstore.

Allot of work, but the gift of time is always worth your efforts, and won’t go un-noticed ;) the budget was under a thousand dollars, including paint and draperies…thanks IKEA!

Merry Christmas Mom,

Great design doesn't have to cost thousands and thouosands of dollars. It happens when you see not only with your eyes, but with your heart.

Now what Mom would not love that! How kind of you.
True, good design and good taste need not cost a fortune. I love how you transformed the room!
What a gift you have.
