My Impossibility Challenge

I've taken the plunge! The Impossibility Plunge! I've decided to face my fear in front of y'all. Yes I have decided to tackle the dreaded guest room. The room who's door has remained firmly closed to the public for ...well let's just say a long time now. Perish the thought that someone, a guest for instance, may want to use it! So I have joined the brave women at Thistlewood Farm's Impossibility Challenge and have vowed to JUST DO IT, the painting, the sewing, the moving of furniture, the......dang now I'm too tired to start! Ahem, uh, okay I'm gonna do this, officially starting tomorrow. Honest I am. Here's just a small itsy bitsy peek at what I'm dealing with. Don't judge me :)

This will hopefully look more like this when I'm finished...... 

Found on Pinterest, sorry I don't know the original source.
And this...........
Might in some small way resemble this.............well the ruffled cushions at least.
Sacred Treasures on Pinterest

And this will magically be transformed (yeah right) .....
to something like this.....

Or I may chicken out and just paint it white.

And with some luck and white paint and lights make this 

Out of this.....

Or maybe from this....
Anyway, wish me lots of luck and if you're bored and need something to do, come on over I'll even feed you.

P.S. Yes, I know it's gonna be girlie, the guys can sleep in the barn, right?
