I had to repaint the craft studio.. I didn't realize how long it has been since I painted it pink.. But many nail holes later..and no touch up paint to match.. So just gave it a whole fresh coat of pink. Then decided to paint the hutch in pink and white. It was a little on the Pepto pink on he hutch color, since it was the next color darker than the wall color.. I tamed it down by dry brushing white over the pink areas. I decided to get rid of the table skirt and let the file drawers show..and added black and white damask style wrapping paper, i did it the easy way and just double stick taped the paper on.. I tried decoupage, it was just a wrinkly sticky mess.. I did decoupage my sewing machine case, and the trash can. I double stick taped the damask paper to the back of the hutch also, since it is bead board backed , I knew one day would come and I would want to change it up again. I also used some of the damask paper to cover a shoe box, and I was able to hide my electric outlet plus in it. I tried setting up a "candy station" that seems to be the rage..where u use pretty containers to display your supplies.. I don't like how it looks.. I do mosaics, but not every day..so it seemed odd to have the glass bits on display, and just tend to put my supplies away, that's why I have the pretty mosaic and painted dresser and my closet.. SO I will redo the contents of the hutch at some point. I think I will display my old silver tea sets, and silver ware, etc. and maybe some of the milk glass will stay. I hung up some white lights over the window so it will be all lit up on the gloomy winter days when we don't have a peep of sun, and the grey goes forever.. I think the lights will be a cheerful thing. I also repainted the work table top, while it was wet I sprinkled prism glitter all over it..LOVE that.There is a photo of me on the wall, I am sitting on my dads Buick.. I will always love cars ! There is also a pix of my dress form, with the green dress.. I put lights on it so i could plug it in and the skirt part lights up.. I think I need brighter lights than the rope lights.
Dear Robin from CandyCreekblogspot was here this summer and brought me some great Breakfast at Tiffanys note pads, etc. She's a doll !
I got 3 mosaic's almost finished this week, and cleaned up in the room, so I can sew a few things..trying some clothing revamps, adding some lace on some things. Tomorrow I paint the living room.. THAT is calling to me.. I want the fresh coat of paint in the Tiffany box blue in that room..yes, that color is taking over the house. I love love it..and it makes me feel happy and calm, all at the same time.
