The Rose Room Shop Giveaway

The painting of the shop is coming along nicely, can't believe the transformation from the hideous blue it was . . .


To now starting to look like this . . .


These are my front doors, they fold back and open from an entrance foyer. They were that hideous blue. Do you like my stencilling? I am teaching myself to paint roses but didn't feel confident enough to paint in the shop yet, so stencilling it is.



So much fun that I started stencilling everything!

This pelmet . . .

The kitchen cupboard doors that I repainted a soft green . . .






and this which I begged from my new neighbour! It was a dirty white, now gorgeous green and is going to hold the baby wear (the red thing inside is coming out!).




Opening day is Saturday 15 September so the pressure is on! I really should not be blogging or signing up for new swaps, such as this one being hosted by the lovely Heather over at Jeweled Elegance


But oh well, Mum's here now, she will fix everything!
To celebrate the opening of the new shop I am going to have a GIVEAWAY!


Just leave a comment all through September to go in the draw to win a box of Rose themed goodies.

Have a rosey day!

You are doing a fantastic job re-decorating the shop. The senciled roses are so nice. I can hardly wait to see your shop when it opens. You and Liz are doing a wonderful job.

I tried to leave a comment on your thrifting finds post- but couldn't find the link- you really scored at the thrift shop- love those vintage linens and the pink lace outfit is wonderful!

The princess is wonderful, too- its so sweet that she'll pose for you!

Your shop is looking great- wish I could pop by- I bet you're excited!

Miz Smoochie Lips said...

HI there! I think your comments must be disabled on your latest Princess post because I couldn't find where to leave one so I'll tell you here. Princess is so adorable! Yes, get her into Ballet... she'd be perfect for a tutu :) Lovely bits and goodies you scored at your thrift store too.

Amy said...

Not sure what is wrong with my latest post and why it can't be commented on! Didn't change any settings . ..

Natasha Burns said...

Hi Racheal, I've gone a bit blind and can't find the 'comment' button on your newest post so I am commenting here on it! I love all the things you found at the thrift store! WOW what a haul... and that outfit is as sweet as can be! Make sure you take pics of yourself wearing it!
