I wanted to pop in and show you some of what I've been up to these past few days...
Oh! and tell you I am so happy with my new arrangement with my dishes. :)
I told you all about my plan to have my everyday dishes out in the open so I could enjoy them and USE THEM; along with my motive being ,in the end, less dusting. IT'S WORKING!
I. LOVE. IT.
I did end up going back and finishing up the job THIS WEEKEND (FINALLY!)
Vintage Dishes- before:
This was my motivation...
Not the guineas.
The 18 month old BOY!
Oh yes! He is a climber.
In an effort to get his pacifier... he decided he would stand on the bucket of paint.
Long story short...
the paint got spilled on my kitchen floor.
(for the record- I was watching all this unfold...so you can imagine my surprise when the lid came off the paint)
We don't cry over spilled paint in this house.
No... I look at it more as a 'happy accident'...
I've always thought about painting this floor in my kitchen. It is just sub-flooring.
So, why not grab a brush, right?
I just never had the guts.
I started a ::Painted Floors:: board on Pinterest
trying to decide if we'll just paint it out solid or do a pattern.
In the mean time... work is moving along on the settee...
NOT AT AN ALARMING RATE...
I put the burlap on; and have the neck roll sewn into place; and I'm working on the springs right now.
Hopefully I'll get a couple of posts with pictures, up about that soon.
Also, I am reading this blog...
Here is her ABOUT page
I found this lovely little blog via Claudia @ MHC...
She lives in Yorkshire (UK) and she sews and crochets, has children, dogs, chickens...
Oh and she has painted floors!
So how about you, how do you feel about painted floors? Love 'em? Hate 'em?
Would you? Could you? Plain or Patterned?
