I haven’t found much at the thrift store lately. It has been rather disappointing seeing as though I go every Friday and never leave with a single thing. I did however go this past week and ended up with a set of wood bowls. I personally am not a big fan of finishing the bowls, but once they are completed they normally look primtastic! So, I bought the set of bowls which included 8 small bowls and a large bowl and then it also included a wooden fork and spoon. I am assuming that someone used the wood bowls for salad, but I myself wouldn’t use wood bowls for salad. Would you? Anyway, here are a couple pictures of the bowls. I will finish them when I am able, but at least it gives you an idea as to what they look like. I am sure they will look great painted a variety of prim colors.
Talking about paint…. I decided to paint a wall that goes from my family room into my entry way. I decided to go with the Bleached Wheat which I personally think was a favorite of all you prim gals out there. After I looked at a bit longer, it ended up growing on me and I took the plunge. I bought the paint on Friday and have been painting ever since. I painted the one wall, but ended up painting the whole entry way and then down the hallway. It needed it quite desperately. When I bought the house, I was under the impression that they had painted the walls, but now I am thinking otherwise. I ended up using 2 gallons of paint and I personally never thought that I would end up using that much. Anyway, it is now completed and it looks great! I am tired and worn out and enjoying the idea of re-decorating my home, but all that painting can definitely make a girl tired. Here are just a few snap shots of the painting in progress. More pics to follow tomorrow.
So, what do you think? Looks pretty good so far – huh? It took a couple coats, but it turned out beautifully. I think eventually I will prime and then paint the rest of the family room the same color. Right now it is gonna have to wait because quite frankly I am tired of painting (lol). I just can’t imagine painting for a living. Oh, I would get tired and worn out from that very quickly!!
Until Next Time…. Hope you all are enjoying your Labor Day Weekend!
