remember last week i painted my hall … and then painted some trees? well because of the craziness, things have been at a stand still since. i really want to finish up a couple things in the hall to make it look somewhat complete but i’m just not finding the time. anyone know where i can buy extra hours for the day?
i did hang some artwork though. when i bought the bed and breakfast the original owner gave me a bag full of the original blueprints of this house. they are beautiful. the color. the detail. there is even some pencil markings on them where the architect or contractors made adjustments and such. very cool.
i felt they needed to be removed from their bag and put on display. and with the hall painted i knew it was the perfect spot! the green and blue is amazing. i love it!
i found the frames at wal-mart. they were actually on sale for $10 a piece! amazing. and there were three of them! it was meant to be.
see that window to the left? this is where my curtains are going to go. (when i get around to making them.) remember that amazing fabric i found? that’s where its going to go. curtains flanking the window. there is a little blue in the curtains. it’s not an exact match, but that’s okay. i don’t really like being too matchy-matchy. slight variations of shades add more character … at least i think.
i also got that beautiful antique sign above the window (sorry it’s hard to see … it says ‘love one another’) from one of my favorite etsy sellers. that’s where i got penelope. (and thanks to jen for the name choice! love it.)
this vintage open sign is above another door at the bottom of the staircase. i had it for a while, but never had a place for it. the color is a darker shade of the blue from the blueprint images. it works perfect.
so the hall is coming along, but nowhere from being finish. i’ll be excited when its done … and don’t worry i’ll share pictures.
