I'm Seeing Red

I'm seeing red but not in a bad way!

As in red furniture!

Oh my gosh, I forgot how much I love red!

So why am I looking at red furniture? Well, I have a friend who is thinking of buying my son's old dresser to use as a tv stand and she asked if I could paint it for her - you guessed it! - red. Why yes, I can! :o)

So, I've been on Pinterest pinning away.

This one is a duller red but I still like it!

 Then there's this buffet with the stained top. Love the combo!

 Then be still my heart! Red chairs!

I need to paint my bar stools red for the kitchen bar, I think!

My dining room table in the city needs a new finish. Hmm, maybe red?
Stay tuned for its makeover and the dresser into tv stand makeover! One will be red for sure, the other is a strong possibility!!

Oh! And the barstools...let's not forget those. :o) Guess what I'm doing this weekend at the farm? LOL.

Have a wonderful weekend. I'll be painting the town (or really, furniture) red!

    1. Really, Cecilia? Do you have a photo of them? What did you use? Lol, I have questions, girlfriend!

  3. Love the red pieces, but the dining table in the photo with the red chairs is exactly what I want! We are probably going to build one custom since I haven'y been able to locate one like I want. Have a great weekend at the farm! I promise to send a photo of Sadie over the weekend...:)

    Blessings, Vicky

    1. That dining room table looks like the one I have at the farm. But my other one is a round single pedestal table. I can't decide if I want to paint it black, white, or now red. Oh decisions! :)
      Can't wait to get started on Sadie's painting. 😃

  4. Love your sense of humor and love that red! The bottom half of my china hutch looks quite a bit like the 3rd picture you posted. I think it might work to paint it. But I don't think red would work.....or would it? LOL

    1. Why not, Susan? But I guess a question to ask yourself would be "how much do I like red?". It could work!

    1. I told my husband I was painting the bar stools red and he wanted to know why. They are black right now...not bad, just safe. It was too humid and rainy anyway so it didn't happen. Oh well. I'll sneak something red in soon. :oD

Farm Laundry Room Wall

This weekend I got the laundry room painted - walls, trim, and shelves. Yay!! It looks fresh and bright.

And because I got all the painting done, I was able to get the accent wall done ( thanks to my husband for his help!). When I began planning, I wanted to do something to the walls that would give it some interest. I thought of beadboard or a rough plaster texture but I wanted a more rustic look. Rough wood planks (as in old fence pickets) or what I really, really wanted was rusty tin. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough old fence pickets or somewhere to get rusty tin for either option.

I had just about decided to go with beadboard when I just happened to mention the rusty tin idea to one of my sisters. She said she knew where she could get some, so how much did I need? Yes! I quickly measured, told her, and in a few weeks had some tin panels. Perfect...only they weren't rusty. She told me the rusty ones were too far gone so she decided to bring me these. Ok, I can rust them…

Thanksgiving sign

I can't stand it...I was going to post this next week but I'm dying to show it off! I know, I know, now I will have to come up with a new post for next week. That's ok. I'm having fun with this and so enjoy it. You make it so much more so! So thanks for reading and leaving comments. I am thankful for you! Anyway, here's my farm mantel post:

My mantel needed help. Everything I placed there got lost against the brick. Painting it isn't an option - that was voted down very emphatically! However, I painted the trim around the fireplace to match the surrounding walls and ah, that looks better - blends instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.



 Also, it doesn't quite line up with the fireplace. Or the fireplace isn't centered on the wall. Who designed this anyway?! I can't tell you how many quirky things we've found in this house. I think it's  called character! ha.

To help it look better, I decided it needed a wooden sign. I picked a favorite sc…

Cozy Christmas Farmhouse at The B Farm

Hello my friends! Today I'm sharing The B Farm all cozied up for Christmas as part of the Cozy At Christmas Blog Tour. It's five days of Christmas goodness - I hope you will pop over and visit the other ladies. I'll share the links at the bottom of my post.

This year, I'm crazy about plaid! What? You too? To me, it just says "cozy" and "homey".

To begin, I dressed the table with red plaid placemats and red napkins from Audrey of Timeless Treasures. The plaid stockings are actually silverware holders my friend Susan gave me a couple of years ago. So cute!
The red pillows on the bench were wrapped with red and white plaid ribbon. They remind me of presents! The green plates with pinecone motif were a Good Will find many years ago.

Then in the kitchen window, I hung some crocheted lace also from Audrey. It's not plaid but it says farmhouse cozy to me!

Isn't it pretty?

The cute red and white checked apron (another wonderful item from Audrey) han…
