so far, so good


first, thanks for all the super sweet encouraging words yesterday! you haven’t lost faith in me and i soooo appreciate it!

things are progressing faster than planned in the painting department. thank goodness. but things are still a bit crazy. lamps don’t have shades. power screwdrivers are on paint cans. tables and chairs are on beds. craziness.

as i mentioned the ceiling is finished. exposed wires await a fixture.



and today i finished up the trim. that’s my least favorite part to paint. so i’m beyond thrilled it’s done. and what an amazing difference.


then, with the help of my amazing mother, we began to cut in the wall color. i’m using two colors. one is antique white.



the other is dover white. my paint treatment is ‘a little different’ so i’ll attempt to explain it when it’s finished. it will be much easier that way … and hopefully make more sense. both colors are from sherwin williams. i swear by their paint.


this is a shot of the antique white … it’s the area in the upper right corner next to the window frame. the molding on the wall will be painted the same color. it’s hung at a weird height and i didn’t want to remove it. so i’m working with it.




more wall color with some of the fabric. (this red and white fabric is actually from wal-mart. they were closing our fabric department and i got it for a steal!)



and a couple more new additions to the fabric for the room.



i’ve been wanting to do a room with primary colors. it reminds me of the country and farm life. the yellow sun, the blue sky and a big red barn. i just love it!



more to come! hopefully painting will be done on friday! *fingers crossed*

    If I heard primary colored room, I’d probably look at you funny, picturing a pre-school or something. But this? This is how it’s done. Great choices in fabric! I love the walmart red & white. My walmart’s fabric dept closed a couple years ago and there was no sale, no nothing. Just poof, gone! Sads.

    I am in the planning stages of painting a dining room/kitchen area and need
    color suggestions. Right now I have colonial yellow on the walls but
    I want to go to a complete different color spectrum and I was
    thinking of antique white. How would that look with bisque appliance
    and oak cabinets and laminated hardwood floors? I really want to get
    rid of that dark yellow on the walls.
