I thought I would show you a few finds to distract me from the mess; we are in the process of painting the living room, entry and hallway. I will post that project after the fact.
I am still thrifting. I am always on the hunt for something cool, especially if it is cheap.
This little aqua and pink shell covered vase was 10 cents at a sidewalk sale at a consignment shop I frequent. Someone worked very hard to glue all of those shells onto this simple vase. I love it.
This cool hanging thingy was given to me by another vendor at the shop where I sell. I mentioned to her that I had been looking at (wanting) it and she just handed it to me and said “take it”. So I did! For free! It looks great in my knotty pine laundry room.
It says “Hang it All” just like that funky charcoal grill that we bought and was featured over at Retro Renovation.
How about these sweet deer: they also hang out in my laundry room.
I found these great drink glasses to match that Flintstones inspired pitcher. The blue one features an Elroy Jetson style motif 🙂 The one on the left is a cowboy and the center one features all four seasons.
As much as I dislike orange, I am finding that I am buying it.
I think that I am going to paint the cubbies in this built-in bookcase next to the fireplace in assorted colors to give it a more funky vibe.
Probably aqua, grey, peachy beige, pale gold?
What do you think?
The prep work for this paint job is unbelievable. We have plaster walls, and the previous owners did not seem to care one bit about this house. They did not even bother to take the switch plate covers off before painting 😦
After spending thousands on all new windows, this is how they caulked:
I mean, really?
Needless to say Dear Hubby has patched, sanded, filled, scraped and primed practically every inch of these rooms. All while working full time and trying to help built the sets for our upcoming church Christmas musical.
Hopefully next week it will all be Sherwin Williams Suburban Modern Harvest Gold awesomeness 🙂
Check back then!
