I sure do take my hat off to you ladies who do this all the time, this is my first time painting anything so big, I’m keeping fingers, toes and everything else crossed that it turns out half as good as all of yours! So I’ve been painting while the light is good during the day and just sitting looking at it at night:)
My dining room is such a mess, we can’t even use the table it’s just full of dishes and a paint can and brush, newspaper underneath it all…yuck.
I’d love to know what color I should paint the frames on the pictures on either side of it, right now they are a gold wood, so don’t forget to let me know in a comment okay? I’d appreciate any advice:)
See the washstand in the left hand corner, I bought two sample cans of Cafe Blue/ Valspar paint to use on it and put it in my bedroom as a nightstand. Plans for my bedroom are swirling around in my head so maybe that will be my next project!
Here’s a closer look…I took these photos at night so that’s why there are shadows, I know one thing I can’t wait to tweak it and try out different things to put in it:)
I have managed to change some things while the paint was drying, above the desk, which I found at a yardsale for $20.00, I put all white plates instead of two flowered ones that I had hanging there and I like the look.
I forgot to show you this cloche I found at GW for .99, they do have them at Marshall’s for $7.99 but much bigger than mine, I feel really lucky in finding this one for so cheap!
I was at Lowes and Walmart today and at Walmart I bought these green apples to put in this bowl that Mr. K gave me for Christmas, it’s a McCoy! I can’t wait to put it in the center of the table with the china cabinet in the background looking good! I’m liken my camera!!! Looks like you could grab one right out of the picture doesn’t it!
I couldn’t wait to show all of you the progress on the china cabinet, boy, do my shoulders ache…of course the kettlebell is one reason, I have to tell you that I can see the difference in my shoulders and arms because of using it I’m trying to get in better shape for that trip to Jamaica which will be here before I know it:)
