Pudge's Room-Redecorated

I had my doubts whether both of these chairs would fit. I am happy to report that they did. Note the table lamp in between. That was a very dated brass with an ugly lamp shade. I did not like it. Spray painted it with a nickel finish and got a silvery lamp shade. Like it so much better. I am fond of the pictures. They fit the southwest very well. I have grown very fond of this artist's work--DeGrazia. Got this as well as 5 others from my sister in law, Bobbie. Actually they were from her mom who had bought them when she lived in Texas.
Book case was bought brand new. I want to move it to the other corner. Pudge likes it where it is and it is his room. The TV stand was stripped and stained. That gave it a more updated look. I know it looks too small for TV but it is solid wood and I like the shelf and storage underneath.

Here is the bright red wall. Once again--not sure what happened here with this underlining. I am not going to try to correct it. I admit I am paranoid and with good reason I might add. Anyway, we like this wall a lot. Other walls are a taupe. This does give the room some color and it pops. The golf pictures were bought at the Goodwill. Pudge picked out the clock the first year. This was after I spotted it and then he went to see if he liked it. That is how we operate and it works pretty well.Here is the new couch and rug. Also the new ceramic tile floor which I really like. So much better than that crappy linoleum that was so very difficult to keep clean. The rug really pulls all of it together. It has the red from the wall, the blue from the chairs and the mocha from the couch. We love the picture above the couch. It is a print of "our mountain." It is Superstition Mountain and we see it every day. Also by DeGrazia. Truth be told -- about the couch -- it was not the one I would have picked out. It is just OK in my eyes.
Pudge is prepping for painting. It was badly in need of some color and fresh paint. Here you can see the ceramic floor. We were so busy the first 2 weeks we got here. Not much time for fun. But it was only temporary and now that it is done we are happy with it.
This post is to appease Cousin Donna. I know if no one else reads my entries she does. I swear she is one of my biggest fans. Also another reason for this post is so my blog can get at the top of Sarilla's side bar. I know it will only be there for a brief time but if I make it a goal of mine maybe I will be motivated to blog more often.


  1. Pat - It's so fun to see all the things you've talked about. Maybe one of these days we will actually get to see your place in person!

  2. I like it when you make it to the top of my blog roll too! I wish I could figure out why you are having so much trouble.

    It is so amazing what a coat of spraypaint can do to old, ugly things.

  3. Yes, this new post pleased me. I love the newly redecorated room for Pudge - the colors and the furniture! I especially like the red wall. You didn't mention the beautiful, green grass outdoors.

    I tried - unsuccessfully - to comment since Wednesday, but it wouldn't work since I wasn't on Google Chrome.
