Hey there followers!!  Sorry I have not been posting lately but I have been ill with one of those pesky winter colds, painting my living room to cover dark ugly paneling and even had a sewer back up~sorry for bad words-LOL!  I am painting the living room with a light warm beige and am so pleased.  I have 2 walls done with 2 coats and have 2 walls to go.  And of course that will make me rearrange, too-ha!  Are you like that?
 Not much of a surprise that I chose a color almost the same as what I had in my kitchen in SC-ha!  

Progress at my age is slow but sure :)

What a difference it makes!!  The room is much brighter and the furniture will look lovely against this background.

Curtains back up :)

I need to paint the closet door as it sticks out like a sore thumb now.  I painted the front door above and that worked out really well.  The paint I am using has primer in the  mix already~very convenient!
I am really pleased so far with the outcome and will show more pics after the room is finished, rearrangement complete and rugs shampooed~may take me til summer-ha!  Are you passing the long winter with updates, remodels, etc?  I would love to see.  

Meantime, here is a great idea for you:  Ashtray, vases made into bird feeder or bath with thrift shop buys.....
I can't wait to try this.  Thanks for coming and leave a comment pls.  I treasure them.

My Krafty heart to yours...


  1. I am so sorry to hear you got that nasty cold that was going around. Your livingroom looks very nice and inviting. Never thought of using an ashtray as a birdbath. I will have to go find me one soon.

  2. The light color is so much nicer. It's just cheerier too.


Thank you so much for visiting and please leave a comment, we enjoy them immensely!!
