Painting the LivingRoom....

I have been at it again...after working on my granddaughters furniture, I really got into the mood to paint! It has been a few years since I have repainted any rooms in my house! I have always enjoyed painting but cant jump up and down a ladder like I used to could. A few years back, I painted so husband never knew? He might go to bed and when he awoke...the kitchen was a different color! Oh, those were the days my friends. Sorry about the messy pictures, but I just clicked a few and didn't even pickup. is what it is looking like now...

The walls are a mustard color called cork and the ceilings are a very pale green. Wow, what was I thinking....I sure regret not sticking to white on the ceilings! I think I got the great idea of painting them from the "Christopher Lowell show". Does that bring back memories for anyone?

The walls are transforming. Yea! I went with white on the ceiling and dove gray walls....I love it!

Well, almost finished. Boy, did that brighten up things! I will try to get another post out...when everything is finished.

P.S....I am collecting things for this upcoming holiday season. I cant wait! I love Christmas!

In the Mood to Paint....

Hello Everyone...for some reason I have been in the mood to paint stuff! is what I was working on last week. I redid a Headboard and dresser for my
Granddaughter. It was a success...she loved it!


HERE IS THE AFTER. The middle Chervron pattern is wrapping paper done with mod podge!

HERE is the old black dresser BEFORE, of course I forgot to take the "before" picture.

"Pepper" is offering her assistance. she is my daughters dog. *One of my daughters is a nurse and works pretty long hours so.. I babysit Pepper about 3/4 of the time.

And, HERE IT IS AFTER. I didn't yet have on all the handles, but it came out pretty good. I added a touch of gray to these pieces for something new.

I just have to throw this in....As soccer season is coming to an end...I must tell you, I am so PROUD of all my Grandchildren. Just posting all their pictures here
together brings a tear to my eye. Heck, I think "Pa" and I could make our very own soccer team!

Garage Sale Shopping.....

I have been at it again! I just can't seem to keep away from garage sales or Estate sales! I have so much stuff! I am doing some Spring Cleaning to get rid of stuff (right now) and here I am...buying more new stuff! Here are a few of the "New" finds.....

Dazzling Vintage Rhinestone purse

Vintage Seashell necklace.....I don't know...this may have to be a keeper

A Basket full of goodies! I can think of so many things to use these vintage earrings on!
I must say...If affordable, I never turn down old jewelry. You can make lots of fun stuff!

This lamp is so "Paris Apartment" I was intending to make it into a candle holder, but for now I guess it will stay a lamp.  I got this idea from a blog I read faithfully, she had made a few vintage lamps into candle holders....What a terrific way to use them! You can see her post HERE if you are into"Shabby Chic" Ms Penny has got the blog for you!
I just Love this plate rack!! I really have been trying to find one for my kitchen...This one is for sale at a local Antique shop. But, for $470...I guess I will have to keep looking!
I am selling my "Spring Cleaning" items on Ebay, now. If you would like to take a look: CLICK HERE
