Hello my dear Blog Sisters ,
Today I'd like to show you one of my latest projects,
and a bit of the change we're
working on in our
living room .
Over a year ago , I told you that we were not that happy
with all the white in the room , simply too much.....
to our taste .
To read a post about the start of our redo click Here.
So we decided to add some darker elements ,
and started with the wall ( behind the beautiful painting
of our son , it is there temporarily )
and painted it a tone of sage green.
The brick wall was next..........here's a photo I made
on a winter's night , but it will give you an impression .
I 'm sure you can picture me launching on the couch
surfing the internet : ).
The photo's of this abandoned apartment in Paris
very much inspired me.......
I just love this combination of colors.........
I luckily found in a thrift shop ( where else : ) .
The pillow cases are from vintage fabrics and match
the colors in the globe picture.
We chose this picture because Mr.B. was a geometrician
and the colors of course....... : ).
All in all I wanted to add something more masculine ,
considering all the lace my dear one has to look at........
A dark floor was a long-held desire of my Mr. B : ).
But a dark floor and a dark dining table and chairs....
was again a bit too much , sooo.....
there we found our selves painting
something WHITE again......HaHa....
I know !!
you must think : ....."Why do these people drag around
their furniture all the time....... ??? and what is Mr. B. up to.... ?? "
we have a Winter and Summer formation : )
and I took pictures in the middle of some moves......
but since we isolated the ceiling in the back room
we can also be there in the winter.....: )) !
So there you are......... ; )
( Little thing is that in that way we can't
sit on the couch in front of the wood stove
hmmmm.....what can we do about that......? )
( more about picture above later in this post ).
Now here's one of my latest projects
A table cloth I made of vintage doilies....
I like the 'Shabby Chic' feel it has,
together with the table and chairs now.....
here are some photo's...
The beautiful flowers are a Mother's Day gift
from son # 2 and my d-i-l !
My desire was a piano , just to look at
and as a great addition to the room .
I found one on the internet for only 25 Euro ,
( see.....how good it is to surf on the internet ; ) ?!
it was not far from our town......
and yes , my dear , sweet Mr. B. volunteered.....
Thank you so much , my love !!
"My old piano....."
Hope you enjoyed......
