We got some much-needed rain today…just wish that the rain hadn’t come with bad storms. Our weather radio was going off every few minutes for most of the morning. Storms make me very nervous…so I decided to do some decorating and painting to keep myself busy.
I had this large wood sewing spool that had a piece of wallpaper boarder wrapped around it…got it many years ago at a craft show. (Sorry I forgot to take a before photo.) I wanted to put it out on display with my other spools, so I got some wool yarn and wrapped it…
…and now it is up on top of the bookshelf with my other old sewing spools.
Then I got out my red and aqua paint and repainted a few things. First piece I repainted was this bandbox…it’s there on the right with the little basket on top of it.
Those hearts just had to go…and I love how it looks now…
I will be putting it back up on the shelf after the new kitchen is finished, but not everything that is in that photo is going back up there.
I also painted two wood spindles…one was green and the other was orange. (Sorry forgot to take a before photo of these too.) Love them in their new colors of aqua and red.
The last thing I did was to do a little decorating at the end of our hallway upstairs. The framed piece was made for me by my sister…she found this old doily at a thrift shop and put it in a frame that my hubby made. The two heart pillows were gifts from a blogging friend and the wood hummingbirds were a gift from my mom.
I just love how it looks when you walk upstairs…
The new kitchen is coming along, but we had a damaged cabinet and are waiting on the new one to come in. We will be working on the new flooring next. Hope to have more pictures of the kitchen to share soon.
Until next time……. blessings, Cindy
