The house is far from finished. Some
accomplishments have been made
though. Pretty new light fixtures have
been installed in the halls, living room and dining room.
I had a great time
laundry room. I did it with layers of
paint, rollers, cheese cloth etc to make a really cool pattern. The picture doesn’t really do it justice. It’s pretty blues and purples…a lot like an
Easter egg *smile* It would be a bit
much for a room one actually lived in, but for the laundry room it’s
makes me smile…that is a lot for a laundry room to do!
It was a blast painting it this way, such
abandon and freedom of expression. I
highly recommend it! Had me dancing
around happily all day.
My craft/office room
done. I have to still varnish the
closet doors and the room door and have them installed, and Lance has a
trim to install around the counters but other than that it is ready to
go. I really like it.
I had fun customizing the trim…took hours to paint/stain it the
way I did, but the final results were fabulous. The
new windows are perfect for the lighting I needed and the
counters everywhere are a dream for my projects. Here
are pictures of trim, the counter pattern and the
windows. I’ll get the actual counter
and other things after they are totally done.
The cats love the wide window ledges I designed for
their lounging purrrrrsonalities. I had
the natural wood floors refinished. I
prefer the wood in this room as it is far easier to get the glitter,
other special craft things up after a project than with carpet.
So much for house accomplishments.
More will come. I did, after thirty
years (took me a while?!) get the wonderful
chair my Dad had given me recovered. It
was the one I always had in the bedroom.
I had the back restored as a channel back as it suited the frame
I thought. I also had an ottoman
constructed to match. The nagahide they
had on the chair was in tatters, but the reupholsterers were very
with the construction of the chair. The
springs and everything were in perfect condition still.
That chair must be 50 years old now! Anyway,
it is in a lovely plum velvet
brocade which goes nicely with the lilac living room walls and
blue carpet. It is such a comfortable
chair for reading; I’ve always liked it.
Anyway I thought you’d get a kick out of seeing an old chair
