Decorating B'day Gift Cont'd - Music Room & Laundry Room

 Jan calls this room her Music Room because it's where her piano is and dancing pictures. She has taught International Dance for many years and the pictures above the piano are mementos of these dances.

I forgot to take many pictures of the BEFORE of this room
this is one, as you can see we kept the dancing pictures above the piano:

AFTER: We added the square plate and the two tiny framed prints as
they were gifts from little girl Jan to her mother way back when!
One is of a little girl playing a piano and one is a little boy playing a trumpet.

The round glass table was removed (moved to Living Room)
The Blue velvet chair was also moved to the living room
The framed picture was  removed, as well as the Christmas tree!

Another picture with a lot of yellow was added because
it is so pretty with the yellow walls.

We also brought in this adorable metal cart:
 It had been in the breakfast nook.

Curio cabinet

I took several items out and
rearranged it differently:
Jan's mother had a beautiful collection of green Wedgewood 
that is displayed in this curio cabinet.

Moving to the opposite side of the room,
Jan has a card table where she works lots
of jig-saw puzzles!
She also reads a lot in this sunny room:

I forgot to take before pictures of this wall. It had the hibiscus
painting (now in the living room.)

We did a new vignette on the wall above the card table:

 She added the wall lamp over the table:
Thanks, to my husband, Joe for his help installing the lamp
along with the pictures and sconce.

 The lady and dog needlepoint picture was done by Jan's mother.
The needlepoint pansies was done by Jan.
The Hummel's on the sconce were from Jan's mother's collection.

 I also made this silk floral arrangement from an
outdated flower arrangement:

Jan loves these bright colors in the room:

We moved the large metal sunflowers to the right side.

We hung the lone dandelion framed painting
along with a clay flower pot on a sconce.
Have you ever seen a painting of a dandelion before?

 Nice to have a window in the laundry room!
The antique flat irons flank the silk flowers
The bell chimes have butterflies on it.
Jan has her mother's collection of butterflies.

Two very cheerful rooms where Jan spends a lot of time,
we hope you enjoyed seeing the transformation of these rooms.
