Hope everyone had a swell Mothers day! It was quiet for me but I enjoyed my last weekend before going underground to the bedroom. So packers came today…movers tomorrow and demolition on Wednesday. I am really interested to see how they will do everything with no damage. Guess that is why they are professionals.
Here are a few pictures….
It is tore up now….
Take your last look at my floors because guess what??????
I am painting them all white! I mean when is the next time everything will be moved out of my WHOLE house???? I am using the Chalk Paint by Annie Sloan. I called a few vendors who sell it and they said it is the best stuff. I ordered a quart today and it should be here by Wednesday so I can sample. I used 1/2 paint and 1/2 water for my bedroom floors but I think this is a better product.
These are the bedroom floors. They are white oak as opposed to the red oak in the rest of the house.
I have quite a collection of white ironstone pitchers that I have not displayed forever. I was collecting things while most of you were in braces and high school. Seriously. If I saw something in a magazine that I liked, I would make it my mission to buy every. last. one. Yes…my slipcovers are dirty as the bottom of my feet. I just let them go the last week or so. Dogs just crawling all over them. So what who cares….
More…and I think some were already packed up. Hoarder.
Whoops…a few more.
I guess I will be putting everything back in a different way…why not…it is what we do right?
I love old trays…..
And calligraphy brushes…especially if they are cream.
I have had this covered up for years with a skirt…but now that gold is back in….it just might make an appearance.
So…here is what I am thinking for the backsplash. I only need $180.00 worth……sweet huh?
It is called Alabama white.
I love the size…6×12.
Remember these…my first CL purchase????
Here they are painted!
Of course I am not sure where they are going. I am not sure of what to cover the seats in. I am not sure of anything except that I LOVE em!
So…..all of this from a little old dishwasher leak……and floors that can’t be replaced. Until now. PAINTED WHITE. My dream.
