Any idea?  I can tell you that they all play a part in the room I am designing at the Philadelphia Home Show.  This is just a sample of what will be upcycled and transformed to create a reclaimed bedroom. I can’t wait to share the final results and walk you through the transformations.

I will be installing the room later this week.  Follow me on instagram for sneak peeks!

Would you like to visit the Home Show for free?  View Circa Dee and The Painted Home‘s showrooms plus visit our shared craft room where we’ll being painting and upcycling on the fly.  And you’ll be able to finally see the differences between milk paint and chalk paint in person!  Plus, there are 100s of home exhibitors, speakers and special guests attending the show.

  1. Oh I would love to come down and be part of the magic that is about to transpire. I would guess that chair will be in the bedroom and totally upholstered in a fun way. Karen McCall

  2. What a great giveaway! As a Philly design enthusiast blogger, I would LOVE to win tickets to the Philadelphia Home Show!! I’m excited to see what this milk paint is all about… hmmm. Just started following you on instagram hoping to see some sneak peeks!
