Whether I’m happy, sad, glad, mad, bored, or what ever……I can’t go more than a few days without some kind of a project. I swear, sometimes I drive myself crazy. It’s apparently my therapy for….well….just life in general!
As always, the best inspiration can be found in blogland.
My latest inspiration comes from Heather at Pretty Petals.
I just love what she has done with her living room. It’s a wonderful mix of whites with beautiful blues and chocolate browns thrown into the mix.
You can find more of her beautiful and inspiring home HERE.
I can’t repaint my walls. Not without a divorce anyway. They peak in the living room at about twenty feet. Which required two huge sections of scaffolding with a ladder on top of that and six gallons of paint the last time hubby painted. Which I promised would be the last time. But I CAN repaint furniture and rearrange.
This weeks projects………
Moved the chippy tea cart to this wall and repainted the pic. frame cream. Much cleaner and more simple.
Changed my little monkeys shades to cream. Look……he’s smiling he’s so happy. He’s just one of those little whimsical things that I love.
Move two of my apothecary jars to the bottom shelf.
And…….this was a BIG project. In terms of decision making anyway.
I painted my big three drawer chest.
It still needs polyurethane but I REALLY do love it! For one thing, the mirror above shows up so much better. AND…it distressed beautifully.
Just enough of the color underneath shows through. And it looks all chippy and wonderful.
Next, I painted the little French end table that was where the tea cart is now, a pale blue.
It’s at one end of the sofa.
Just a couple more projects and this room is done.
Anywho……I’m close to showing you an all over room shot. So far, the only thing that I’ve spent money on is two quarts of paint. AND I have a cute little French chair that will be for sale at the
Rink next week. So I’m ahead of the game, money wise.
Back to scheming and dreaming!
