Still Painting and a Winner!

This has taken waaay longer than expected. Hopefully Joe will be sleeping in this room tonight. Then I can concentrate on BUNCO. (I have 3 days now!)It is bright but very dramatic. We found some wall sconces at Ikea in black. I doubt I will get out there before next Friday to pick them up. Joe has decided on black and yellow accents. In my insanity I also picked up paint to redo my powder room before Bunco. Wish me luck!
On to the big event. You are all so sweet, if I had time I would make a something for each of you. I'm lucky just to get a minute for art right now. I will post a pic of the prize tomorrow before I package it for the post office.
The winner is Lady Jane's Emporium. Congrats girl! Please e-mail your mailing address and I will send your treasure on it's way.
Thank you all for being out there in blogland.

Have a brilliant Saturday, P.
Pin It!

I REALLY like the green! And with black and yellow accents...I can see it.

Please be sure to post before and after pictures of your powder room! You ALMOST inspire me to do something to my house! Unfortunately, I don't function in winter very well...especially a dreary day like this one.

Can't wait to see all your finished projects, Pam!

I just read Lady Jane's comments and what a gracious winner. If I couldn't win (which I didn't), it's wonderful to see someone obviously so nice did. Now back to the coal mines with you my lovely. Don't make me bust out the cattle prod. I want to see completion photos. BTW, I love the way you did the photos. Tn'T

Congrats Lady Jane! That green is definitely bright, but it looks great. Very cheerful.
