I can't believe this is the first time I've ever picked flowers and brought them into the house...see what blogging does to you. LOL
Hello everyone! How are you? I know, I’ve been gone for a week…gee it doesn’t seem that long but I’ve worked more days than usual this past week and when I get home I’m tired plus this past week was Dancing With the Stars finale and wanted to see Hines Ward take the trophy home to Pittsburgh! Yeah Hines!!!!
Anyway I wasn’t doing a whole lot of decorating either so that put a halt to my posts but I always check out your blogs and always get inspired so much that I did paint a peg rack in the guest room that always bothered me when I passed by the door in the hallway! I also wanted to say that I haven’t been able to leave a comment on those of you that have the drop down box on your comment section, so that’s why I haven’t been commenting on your blog lately. If what your post is about and it interests me or if I think it’s so very neat I’ll leave a comment even if your never leave one on here, that’s just the way I am and what blogging is all about, I don’t care if you have 4,000 followers or 60 I comment!
Here’s what I painted Cottage White! As you can see it’s black and before that it was Barn Red. See the chest of drawers? I picked up a paint chip in gray to paint it! The gray and white pillow sham I found at GW for $1.00 so I’m going to go with that color for the chest of drawers!
I’m sort of leaning towards the Winter’s Day or Going Gray, what do you think? I think the bottom one, Gray Frost would be to dark. The paint chips are from Olympic Paints at Lowe’s.
Looks so much better, I used the soft setting on my camera, lets see if I took it in another setting…
I distressed it too as you can see on the pegs! The little jar is from my son Michael and it’s from Yankee Candle Co. The shell garland is from Pat Catan’s and only cost about $3.00…love it! When I bought it I didn’t know what I was going to do with it but when I saw the peg board I knew it was made for it!
These are pictures of my mom and dad (in the upper left ) when they were about 16 or 17 and the lower one is Mr. K’s mother and aunt, I love older black and white pictures!
Michael also bought me this frame and it’s made from a torn down barn ( that’s me and the Mr. K in Boston outside of Cheer’s ) so nice and chippy!
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my post!
