Fortunately I didn’t have to pitch another fit but I gave the evil eye a time or two to the painter brothers. I will say that they did an excellent job and truth be known, it was their other brother who was originally supposed to do this job that deserves my wrath! I’m just glad it’s over!!!! (We have a wonderful painter that we’ve used for years that is fast, dependable and efficient and we only went this route because brother #1 owes us money).
Do you want to see how it turned out?
This is in it’s very raw stage. I had husband roll up the rugs (I had one on top of the other for some reason but only one will be going back down) last night and I vacuumed but I’ll be scrubbing that tile today or tomorrow. Also, I have no idea what the wall color is because at first the paint store mixed it wrong and I had to have it remixed. I can get the formula if anyone is interested. I really do like it!
I would love to hang a gorgeous lantern for the light but we really need that ceiling fan in there. I’ll probably just change out the fan and light cause this one is from the 80’s!
Since painter guy had put the curtain brackets back up on one window, I went ahead and hung them….gotta see the whole effect, right? (I was standing on that chair to hang the curtains) I blurred out the background cause didn’t want you to see those ugly Adirondack chairs that are going to the lake.
These are some of my “custom made” curtains – ha! They are a pair of full size flat sheets from Wal Mart with a 20” border of painter’s drop cloth.
Here’s my TV cabinet. I’ve debated about painting it but really I love the rustic wood. I bought this cabinet over 20 years ago when “country” decorating was real popular. It came out of an old house in Greenville, Alabama and had been used on the porch to store jelly and the like. The top and bottom doors are in storage and the knobs are old spools!
Here’s where it gets ugly…..I’m thinking about applying for an episode on Hoarders!
Am I really showing ya’ll this? This is what it looks like when the husband clears out a room….he just puts stuff all over the place! Plus the grandkids were here for supper last night and they had out their books & toys.
Don’t you love this chippy turquoise box? I bought it two summers ago at the beach in an old timey general store for $14.99! This will be my accent color in the sunroom. (why am I seeing clamps and a bag of grout – geez!)
I hope to get the other curtains made for the windows over the weekend. We’re supposed to keep the twins Saturday for their mama and daddy to go to Aquapalooza on Lake Martin so I won’t get anything done then.
Thanks for bearing with me during this whole ordeal…..ya’ll’s comments made me laugh and believe me, I’ve needed some laughs this week!
