The painting is complete! Woo-hoo! I feel like having a party! Except we have no furniture yet....
We are currently waiting for our rug, couches, two arm chairs and the new buffet-style unit which will sit underneath the t.v. But the painting is done!! And I love it, it totally opens up the room and it is so much brighter.
There was a whole lot of Spring cleaning going on here today. And we only reached the tip of the iceberg. There's so much more to be done but I was able to drag out some of my treasures that were stored and re-organized this bookcase.
I decided to change the vignette on this old farm table.

I soon realized that this was the perfect place to display my "Fowl and Chicken" creation. I had planned on selling it but I just can't let it go. (for now anyway!)
I scored the cream drawer at the 'junk' place Janet, Karen and I went to last week for $5.00. Wait- it was 50% off, so really it was only $2.50! I just loved the look of it and decided to put it out where I could enjoy it. Of course, I had to "ram it full" as hubby would say. I don't care, I love my junk!
I don't know about you ladies, but sometimes I really wonder what exactly my style of decorating is. I am torn between some new sleek styles, chippy old stuff and European old world. I decided just to mix the new with the old and not let any decorating magazines try to dictate to me what I should be doing. I will just decorate with what I love and somehow it will all come together. Right?
Above is an old display case which I covered with my old prescriptions. Can you tell I love cream? Although I love it, I am going to sell it.
