Home from Boulder, Co.
Greg [sil] is renovating a house so I went out to consult on paint colors.....some kitchen questions etc.....
Then we started talking about staging it. It is my belief that a staged home sells better. Since this project would be a "starter" home.....they probably still have college furniture. So....I don't think we have to break the bank giving it a cute look.
I introduced him to Pinterest.
Felt pretty good to show a hip, cyclist, dog loving, veggie eating dude something new. Uh huh...I am old but I do know a thing or 2.
I started a board [Grape St] so I could pin inexpensive items that he could order. Then I offered to go back out and help pull it together.......my favorite part.
OK...back to the new pillow.
When I posted my fall mantel there were a few questions about the cabinets flanking the FP wall. I had those custom built when we renovated the house in 1994. I got it in my mind that I did not want them to specifically look like built in cabinets.
Here is a close up of the bookcase styling.
One day a few years ago I got a wild hair and painted the inside with milk paint. I go back and forth between painting the whole unit and not. That would make for a heated debate huh?
I found the old propeller at a flea market in Florida.
And now for the picture that started this whole post....
News Flash....it's black and white. A really heavy linen.
Somebody else wanted to know about that black and white vase.....I got it at Ikea years ago....just a wood box and painted the stripes. You would have thought I posted about it but of course that was long before I mastered the "labels" button.
Did anyone local make it out to see all the rooms at UMCH?
Here it is Wednesday and it feels like Monday to me. Getting a late start on my week.
Need to be lighting fast at everything this week.
