Well, I finally figured out what to do with my very fun BIG glass vases found at Ikea this last fall. A friend recommended just putting some sticks from the backyard in them... and, I did! And best of all - I love it! It's totally me and just about as "country" as I'm allowed to go and have the hubs still like it. ;) This isn't the best pic - but, just to give you an idea. So that project is done and just about wraps up the living room!
2 weeks ago I started the transformation of the front porch/sun room. It was STARK white and is being changed into a lovely "Wild Honey". Thankfully we have plenty of this color left over from the kitchen - and it works GREAT in this room. It's already warmed up just this portion!
A loooong time ago I had asked you bloggy world friends for some advice on what to do with this space. I'm still a little boggled as its just a long room with old windows, is not heated, but has SO much potential. The verdict for now is - this will become Ava's summer play room and another reading nook area. So, right now I'm painting and deep cleaning it. Brad cut down the old, nasty, non-working door bell wires this weekend. We have purchased a nice sized espresso finished shelf with hooks to hang out there by the front door entrance. Last week I repurposed a broken clock into a new non-working-but-cute-decor-piece that we'll use out there, too. I'm looking for a looooong strip of nice looking carpet or if I could luck out and find a great long, thin, rug that would be awesome too. And to top it off I'm praying for a small bistro table and chairs or just some smaller sized furniture pieces that Brad and I could use. And the ultimate dream would be to stumble across a small church pew to place under the shelf. But, my antique-loving friends have told me... "keep dreamin' sister"...so I shall. :)
It's fun to dream and plan...now to just put it all together.
Pictures coming soon!
