I had this large clock. It needed new works. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the old hands to work and got stuck with these gold ones...I probably should at least spray paint them. ha.
I then put crackle medium on it and painted it this lovely shade of blue from Benjamin Moore called Palladian Blue. It is a soft aqua-y blue. Love it.
It went on the mantel along with a late summer touch of Sunflowers and other late summer/Fallish flowers...
A girl can dream of cooler weather with bonfires, a cozy fire in the fireplace, warm quilts, and hot chocolate, can't she? Even if it's months away still...
The entry table also got an update:
Back to reality and the 100 degree heat. Boo.
On a more exciting note, with the laundry room done, I have officially done every room in my lovely little farmhouse. Sure, there are some small things to be tweaked. Always will be. But I'm done for the most part. And finally, we're getting internet so Bruce can work from there a few days out of the month. Which brings up an issue - he says he has no office since I took the 2nd bedroom and made into a guest room. He has no desk so plans on working at the kitchen bar. uh...I'm not sure why he needs a desk or lots of space for one day a week, twice a month??? I guess I'll find out. Then there might be some serious tweaking going on in the guest room. ha. He did threaten me with taking up some room in the barn/art studio. I'll let him if that means my art studio gets done sooner. :o) It still looks like this:
There are no walls or door across the front so leaves and dirt are always blowing in. I think it needs some work...
Ah, the joys of a smaller house. Time to think about adding on? ;o)
