Few Sticks, Much Paint
Hey my friends!
I can’t believe it’s been two weeks since I’ve posted!
I’ve missed you all.
Life has been busy, busy around here.
Thanksgiving is around the corner, and I’ve been getting the house ready.
and I should tell you…I’ve been painting my walls ;0)
I wanted a rich, creamy white that would blend well with the bright white cabinets.
Here is the wall color BEFORE:
And, because I’m joining Saturday Nite Special with Donna,
I added a few sticks to the mix 🙂
I also made a little ladder to hang towels and grainsacks from.
My old fence boards put to good use once again…
until I find just the right vintage ladder to put in this space.
I also tried my grainsack pillow in the chair.
The white paint is called “FRESH COTTON” from Behr.
I am trying to use several shades and textures of whites in my decor.
And this paint gives a very rich, soothing background.
Oh, I forgot to mention, I did finally finish painting all cabinets,
top and bottom- but left the doors off under the sink.
Oh, and I used an old burlap coffee sack to re-do the curtain over the sink.
So, turns out, since the color is just right,
I kept painting…
turned the corner, into the dining room
and painted that, too.
The bucket holds a few red bud branches from our woods.
I also found fresh pinecones and pecans on a stroll through the farm.
The old doors are from a favorite cabinet of mine,
which I have repainted and left open
(that’s another post).
And that’s what I’ve been busy getting done around here.
Of course, I’ve been keeping up with all the projects
going on in blogland.
I’m beginning to think about Christmas…
are you getting ready yet?
Thanks for following me, you all make my day.
I am planning a special 200 follower giveaway!
Check back in 🙂
