I am definitely pleased with my paint job! I am tired and worn out and still not feeling up to par, but I knew that since it was the long Labor Day weekend then I needed to take advantage of the time that I had and paint the family room wall and entry way. I knew I also wanted to paint the hallway as well, but didn’t know I was going to do it this weekend. As soon as I got started, I knew I had to finish it off and do it all. So, that is what I did. I sent my sweet hubby out for more paint and listened to him complain for a little while after he got home, but it was all good. He made it completely clear that he didn’t want to help at all, but wanted to watch the OSU game instead. That was understood, but I still needed his help for a few things. Oh, you would have thought I asked him to jump off a bridge or something or sit in a room full of birds. Uh yeah, he is terribly afraid of birds so that is one thing he hates! Anyway, I listened to him complain and then I finished the job of painting. Here are some more pictures of the finished job. I am still in the process of finishing the decorating, but it is a start. Here is my entry way and I am all done decorating it.
It is odd because every picture that I take, the paint takes on a different look. Did you notice that I changed my bittersweet on my bench? I found some that I have had for some time and when I found it, I knew that the old needed to go. I think that the new bunch looks alot better! Here is a close-up.
Alot of you have asked me about the Bittersweet pattern and I am sorry to say that I did not stitch it and my Mom actually gave it to me so, I am pretty sure she bought it from some gal in Amish Country already completed and in the frame, but I would be happy to ask her for all of you.
Here is my new decorations in my cubby above my fireplace. I think it turned out pretty cute. Unfortunately, since we don’t have a basement then all of our wiring has no place to go. So, I have to hide all the cable wire and such behind all of my prim decorations. Ya gotta work with what you have sometimes.
The above picture is how I had it, but then I ended up changing out my dolls. I ended up liking the prairie doll a bit more. What do you think?
Did I mention that this post was full of pictures? Well, you might want to grab a coffee, tea, or Diet Dr. Pepper and enjoy the rest of these pics.
Oh, I re-decorated my hallway downstairs and this is as far as I have gotten. It looks crooked, but it isn’t on the wall. What do you think? I thought it looked nice. Now my other ideas include putting my game-boards in my hallway leading down to this, but I am just not sure yet. So, those pictures are coming soon. Question - Where do you all put your family pics and your pictures of your children? I was thinking my hallway, but I was also thinking about the stairwell area. I just can’t figure out if I want my pictures in my hallway or my game-boards. What do you think?
I also finally hung this up on the wall. I thought that the bittersweet looked great in it.
Did I tell you that I finally was able to decorate my new farm table? Well, I decorated it last night and it looks primtastic and full of color. I love it!! I forgot to tell you….. it isn’t going to be shown quite yet. I wouldn’t want to overload you all on pictures so early in the week (lol). So, on my next post, I will be featuring my farm table or possibly my family room or maybe both. Anyway, it should be a great post. I know that alot of you have inquired about my family room and how you never see any pictures of it. I guess you could say that it is always scattered with toys plus it isn’t too fancy. We sit on and enjoy some comfortable furniture , but I thought I would finally share it with all of you since you asked. Stay Tuned!!
Until Next Time……Have a Happy & Blessed Day!
