When we looked at the house, I thought "Oh my I will have a lot of painting to do". Well, I wasn't wrong, just week 1 and we started painting. You get the feeling, if I could just have one room in order, I could have a feeling of peace. These are the BEFORE PICTURES...
We started with Benjamin Moore Regal Satin Linen White on all the walls and Foghorn Blue on the top of the dining room walls and the main living room wall. We used Simply White on the trim. I have used the combination in my old house before we left and wanted to go again!!
I gave a sneak peak with my Fall pumpkins. The small dry sink is a vintage find from the 70's, just $15. My best friend and I worked on our broken dishes. I picked pieces from my mom, gran and my dishes, I also included some of my best friends and sister in laws dishes. Nice to look at pieces of dreams and I include some of my favorite Halloween pieces.
Leading from the front room to the dining room is my sweet frenchy piece
Yes this is HOME
My fireplace area is cozy but I do have plans for the fireplace...I am just saying "White" and what about that fireplace screen?
Do you think I should go with this
