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 luckI 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!
