Foyer Update: Choosing a Paint Color

The foyer chest have been painted and they look awesome! So, the next thing on my to do list was to paint the foyer. I mulled over paint swatches for several days and came up with zilch. Since paint was going to play a major role in this project, I needed to find the perfect paint color ASAP! So I decided to go in search of some paintspiration. ( Don't laugh I just made that word up and it will be in the dictionary one day!) So I jumped into my Tucson and headed to the Home Depot.  I immediately went to the paint section. I started pulling out paint chips one by one. Nope, nope, nope, that's not the color, so I kept pulling. Low and behold I pulled out this Amazing color. Bare with me, the theme song from "Hawaii five 0" is playing in my head. And I hear Steve McGarrett saying, "Book him Danno." Okay, I've kept you in suspense long enough. The name of the color is Island Oasis by Behr. And it sums up the style that I am creating in our home. Is that a coincidence or what? I love the island beachy feel of this color, and I can't wait to share the reveal.                           

Paint colors look different on monitors. Paint chips and samples give a true representation of the color.

  Just in case you're wondering, I used the paint and primer in one and it turned out Great!
  Gotta run I have several things to do before the big reveal.
2 Your Home,
***I don't know anyone at the Behr Corporation. However, I have been using their paint for the past 15 years and I love it!

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.

My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!

Chat soon...
