Going from one style to another is FUN and HARD work let me tell you! Picking the right paint colors to me is stressful to say the least! I wanted to paint my Hoosier cupboard a neat color but just didn’t know what shade it would be until I saw my free sample from Valspar's Jade Bath. So I tried it out on a cutery carrier I had had for a while and really liked the color.
Here is my Hoosier when I was prim…yes I made that sampler you see there and I mounted on a bread board.
I still have all my crocks and salt glazed jars which I found back in the 80’s for $3.00 each.
Here it is now, my husband said it looks white to him but it’s not as you can tell by the runner on the table and the white single drawer shelf there to the left on the wall!
I used a soft setting on some pictures, this is looking in from the kitchen, I’m thinking of taking the ceiling fan down and adding a new ceiling light…that would be another decision to make:)
I like what I have here, the scale I found for $5.00 at a community yardsale last year, the bowl is from GW and the letter holder is from TJMaxx or Marshall’s.
We were at Pat Catan’s yesterday, my daughter had to get tea cups for Samantha’s birthday tea party today, I found these all white sea shells and three starfish(I bought all they had left) the tea light on the scale is shaped like a seashell and I found that at GW and also the S&P’s.
Not to happy with what I have on top the two glass holders are made from Dollar Tree glassware and the rusty birdcage is from Marshall’s. Don’t you just love cool return register’s? I’m thinking a neat basket up there to hide it would be better!
Of course I kept the original hardware which is at least 100 years old, I bought this hoosier for $100.00 back in the early 80’s from a 100 year old man’s estate it was white with black and red decals on the center of each door, I think now it is the prettiest it’s ever been.
Here is a peek of my livingroom with the soft setting, the only slipcover I can find on the net is PB and that is about 149.00 for it! See the hall wall right between the picture of Syd and the cupboard with all my milkglass? I’m looking for a picture to go there so far no luck!
I’m liking what I’ve done so far, seeing it on pictures gives some satisfaction, are there other areas that I haven’t done yet sure is but I’ll keep you posted on them, after all I have all the rest of spring and summer to do them! Have a wonderful day!
I’ll be at these parties!
