I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I spent mine outside enjoying yet another beautiful Fall afternoon. I mowed Sunday afternoon, that makes 24 times I've mowed this year. The grass around here just won't stop growing. Is this my last time mowing? Guess Mother Nature will determine that.
Are you one of those who gets lucky and runs across a furniture piece an accessory or platter that speaks to you? By the looks of some of the vignettes around here QUITE a few things were lucky enough to come home with me.
Over the course of the last few weeksmany of those vignettes have been edited. I've discovered the journey I'm on right now doesn't require everything to be out at one time. One of the areas to be edited and re-edited was the laundry room. After entering the sun porch on the back side of our home this is the first room you enter when coming inside. Like all of our rooms I like for it to be warm and inviting. This is a room with no windows except for those small panes in the outside door. I'm not quite sure what I was thinking when I painted four years ago this room was a taupe color called Furry Otter Tail. I loved the color at the time, then realized it was just too dark for this area. I got the paint out and got busy re-painting. The color now is Antique Silver, with a slight blue cast it makes the room a lot lighter and brighter.
The room isn't all that small but is filled with an alcove for the washer and dryer, the door leading to the powder room, the door leading outside to the sun porch, a small closet and yet another door that has a beautifully sized pantry behind it. Yes, you have it a room full of doors, I did manage to have this small corner for a piece of furniture and a nice sized wall space for some decor.
After finding the treasured platter I remembered I had a few of the same dishes at home. I got busy and pulled them from the pantry, placing and replacing them in the Larkin desk until I was satisfied with the configuration. On the second shelf you can see a beautifully painted piece of wood. A friend of mine painted this and gave it to me after I lost Mr. P. The thought and gift is priceless, thank you Karen Bush.
Wow!! I'm amazed how about you? I cannot believe it was so dark before, you can see the before HERE Funny how you live with things and don't realize how locked in what you see on a daily basis. I love the room so much better now, what do you think?
