Candy coated pastels.
I will never be over vintage treasures.
Why buy new?
What I am so over.
Gloomy dark chocolate brown.
It sucks the sunshine right out of the rooms.
Dramatic, yes, but no more drama for me.
How to change my surroundings and not spend a mint?
Ah that is looking much better.
A breath of freshness.
Reminds me of the colors I grew up with.
Happy, cheerful, Leave It To Beaver colors.
Just what is needed to lift the spirits these days.
Words of encouragement
on vintage flash cards.
"Please make a wish right now."
Robins chirping in a painted black frame with craft paper matte.
Bits from a blogging pal to hold the words together.
A shelf refreshed with color and a new display.
A $3 frame, painted, and free cows in a pasture from The Vintage Moth in the perfect colors.
I am still tweeking my way through the house.
Flipped the vintage doors in the dining room from the black side to the white.
Ahhh, so much brighter in here!
I can't believe there are no before pictures anywhere on the blog of the base of my dining table!
It was the same oak brown as the top.
No more. Anyone for a touch of blue skies?
The cost for all of this so far has been a gallon of paint and a couple of samples.
The entry walls are Behr Cucumber Crush 440C-2.
The yellow frame is a sample of Caribbean Sunrise UL180-19.
Love the color but haven't decided if it will be my new kitchen color or not. I may just keep the soft vanilla it is already painted.
As always, the trim is Behr Swiss Coffee right off the shelf in semi gloss.
The table and shelf are some paint that had been sitting in the garage and I can no longer
read the name. It is Behr though...did you have to ask?
The table has been drybrushed and glazed as well.
How do you like it so far?
Oh my, I have to get to these floors too. My early 90's bleached oak will be totally back in style before I get to them!
BTW... should I leave the table top, sand it down for a weathered finish, ala Pottery Barn or Restoration Hardware, or maybe paint it?
I also want to add faux panels to the bottom of the entry walls.
I love the board and batten everyone is doing.
Not sure about that part yet.
Oh, and those black chairs...not loving them with the lighter look...hmmmm.
One thing leads to another.
On to the powder room.
Not bad for a few days of work.
I look at projects and put them off and then when I finally do them, they go so quickly I wonder why I ever hesitated.
"All things are difficult before they are easy."
Yours in working towards joy, P.
Today I am linking to...
As well as The Nester's Paint Party!
