Redo

So I got a little decorater happy today. I had read some great new blogs that were so inspiring, I couldn't help but do a little somethin, somethin. It didn't matter that I should have been gettting ready for church. Nope, not at all.
I found http://j-a-girl.blogspot.com/this little blog and I love her! Talk about talent! I also found http://mrs-b-blog.blogspot.com/ her! Love them both and am so excited to see what other exciting things they come up with. (so I can copy of course) Copying is the sincerest form of flattery. At least I think so.
I changed my hall. I was sick of the words and I had a shelf that I love that was sitting in a closet collecting dust.
So-i pulled it out and hung this big, huge, heavy thing all by myself. I was quite proud. I hung it with hercules hooks-some of the greatest inventions ever! I even got it level on the first try! Oh yea-I am that good!!!

So-what do you think?
I like it, I just think that there is a little too much red. I must go and find another color of something else to spruce it up a bit. If I don't, it will so drive me crazy!!
I also moved up my chair that i love and my little black table that I found at a yard sale. It is a little sewing table. The little drawer in front, is not a drawer but a little hidden compartment that holds spools.
I spray painted this one red and then black and sanded and polyed. My favorite trick! i love how the red shows through! Plus, no primer and I always use cheap spray paint!
Yes, the cheaper the better. That is one sentance that my husband doesn't mind hearing!


I have been meaning to show this little number but I thought that I would clean it before I posted it. Sorry girls, no such luck
I found this at the DI-it was $5.00 and brown with apples. Super ugly. I needed something to put on the kitchen wall for some organization of all my crap and I thought that this would be perfect. Just painted it glossy red and sanded a little.

Sorry it looks so junky. I Love it cause it has a little shelf on the bottom. I know always know where my phone is. (yea right)
So-are you sick of looking at pics? I just got a couple more.
I found this super cute old picinic basket for $3.00. I didn't know where i was going to put it, just that I had to have it.

I like it. I stuck some push pins in the side to make the wreath stay. I think that pretty much everything above my counters, came from the thrift store. Do you see why it was so hard for me to pic favorite?

I got the rolling pin ideas from Nicole. She has a ton, I only have one. Since I don't bake, I used it for decor of course. I love chickens too! Bet you couldn't tell. I can never get enough,

So I figure that you are sick of looking at my little country home. The cupboards are just about ready for a redo. We are thinking barn red with some trim. Beadboard for the backsplash and light apple green. I am so excited, this whole overhaul might be sooner than later!
Have a great day!

I love your country style. It was my first love and it will always be my TRUE love. :o) Everything looks great! And you can never, ever have too much red. Or black, for that matter. :o)

I hopped on over from Lemon Annie's blog. You did a great job. I never would have thought that empty picture frames could look so good. It totally works. Thanks for sharing your work.

Awww...thanks for the mention. I appreciate it! You are so good at layering your things. I like how I can look at one little vignette and find something new every time. Nicely done!

Nicole said...

I love it. Love your idea for painting you cabinets and the beadboard. I would love to do that. We put some molding at the top of our cabinets and it made a huge difference. I love that shelf with all the drawers.

It looks cute! You always had a knack for that. You even made our colledge "house" cute! Remember how cute our room was! Totally the best one in the house. Keep it up girl!

You have such a way of accessorizing! I love it all!

Tausha just don't put the floorcloth in front of the door. Put it in a hallway or somwhere where you don't wear salty shoes. Truly it will hold up.

Great job!!!! I love all the red!!!

Dang, Tausha, here I am with the same paint samples stuck to my living room that I put there a year and a half ago, while you're changing up your house in awesome, fun, beautiful ways, like, every single post.
I think I need to get my act together; you're making me feel lazy!

Impressive... I do love all of your CUTE decor, painting the cabinets is a big job, but I know you will make it look AMAZING.

I read 'The Host' and I liked it a lot. Mostly because I like Sci-Fi (hello Roswell?) but I am not into the heavy heavy romance. Don't get me wrong I love Twilight and Edward but there have been times I thre up just a little from all the mushyness. So 'The Host' was great - enough romance, but not so much. I really liked the idea and the characters. Even though I am not a Jacob fan in 'Twilight' I was a total Ian fan in 'The Host'. So what did you think about the book then?
