Living and exploring the creative side of life.

The “Then and Now” Lake Murray map drawn by Ed Fetner that I got framed at Carolina Pottery. I talked with the framer at 3:00 and told her what I wanted and by the time I got home at 4:30 she called me and was finished with it! When I picked it up I was so impressed with the great job she did and especially since she did it in about an hour!

After hanging my newly beaded chandelier I decided to paint the room a pale gray color and I am very happy with the results!

I added the rug to the dining room and I am really liking the contrast between the colors of the rug and the wall color! I have to get rid of the dining table because I have an old quarter-sawn table that I bought a few years ago that I want to put in the room… after I clean off the dust and spider webs!

This is the first coat of Caribbean Splash from Olympic paint. First I removed the door handle, the deadbolt lock, and the kickplate.  It kind of looks good with the old red color showing through!  I considered leaving it this way but decided to put on a second coat.

This picture (above) is closer to the actual color of the paint, blue is hard to photograph. The second coat makes the door look brighter, maybe a little too bright.  I decide to buy some flowers and pots and decorate before I decide if I like it or not.  My neighbors George and Ken are obviously dubious about the color but they are more the traditional type : )  My husband Steve is on the fence about it and so am I.

I am going to put a glaze over the door today to darken it up a bit, I wish the photo would show the true color!


 

My board on Pinterest for organizing my thoughts on redecorating the piano room.

Decor for Piano Room.


Paint I chose for the Piano Room

 

 

I’ve decided to update my “Piano Room” and make an out of the way corner into my studio.  The color has been candy apple red for about 14 years now and it is high time to make a change.  The color choice is agonizing but I finally settled on Sea Salt from Sherwin-Williams.  Here is a before photo…
