Maybe a little vamping is what I'm looking for in this room. I'm not finished with the planning of it although I don't consider it major since so much has been done. The last redo was fun with the touch of green mixed with traditional black and white toile. I loved many things about the room when I finished with it. But I was never sure just how much I loved the color. Some days, a lot, other days not so much. The contrast with the white woodwork is what I like best. I'm thinking of doing some glazing on the walls to see if I can get away with not totally repainting and having to tape it off and paint so much inside the lines. Most of my walls are some shade of gold or yellow in the house, so I was toying with something different in here. I'm not sure if I would get tired of it though. So first I'll try the glazing and get some punch with other things that need to go in here. A big goal is storage! I need organized storage for art supplies. The closet doors have been removed and I hope to figure out something fun and functional for that area.
After (I hope the next After will be Better!)
The daybed went with Sweet Daughter and was beautiful in her new guest room for a very short time, but is now in her garage since she is getting a room mate. Good news for help paying that new mortgage!
The desk and chaise will most likely stay here. I'm searching for a new rug, the back of the bookcases will be painted white I think, a couple of storage things could be brought in. I have been keeping a long French style dresser with lots of drawers on hold for this room. It needs painting....what color? Hmmm....planning yet.
And this isn't even the BIG mess that was in the LR! That has been moving along as well. Just my 2 bergère chairs and the antique Irish pine table in there now, instead of the sofa. The old refrigerator is in the place where the table goes. I spent 2 days researching refrigerators again, but still haven't quite made a decision. But I need to before the sale is over at Home Depot again. I hope I have enough going on to keep me busy.
Puppy came to visit 2 days last week. One day he was hellacious! One day he was perfect. Puppy borrowing works wonders for letting you know what you are in for. But I still love him to pieces.
Today Sweet Hubby is taking the old roof off the porch so he can evaluate what needs to be done before the whole roof is replaced in the next couple of weeks. It will feel good for the house to have a new do on top of her. She needs it.
Happy Independence Day!
