Hello and happy Thursday!! The best day of the week! I am off to the shoppe in just a bit, but I thought I would show you a piece that I just finished for the house. Here is what it looked like before....
Can you see it... it is also before I knew how to make my photos larger, heehee! Anyhow, it looked nice with its original black finish, but that was before the accidents with fabric glue and the scrubbing pad to get off said fabric glue. We use this table quite a bit. There is usually stuff all over it. So, I had taken to covering it up with a table cloth. Then I got a wild hair to paint it my Vintage Map. (edited to add... Vintage Map is a color from my Favorite Colors pallet and it is custom :) I do use all Benjamin Moore paints though. They may have one named Vintage Map, but I have never checked. It is a pale, pale aqua.)
And, it brightened up the whole space! I have been changing quite a few things up downstairs and this is a fresh little change. I still love the black finish that was on it, but it needed to be painted. And, if I am going to paint something, I want to see a change.
The table isn't even old. I think we bought it at Target about 6 years ago. But, from what I can tell, it is a solid wood piece. I have even toyed around with the idea of painting it seasonally... sort of like how JCrew repaints their windows every time they change them. The Mr. probably wouldn't like me rolling it out on the deck to work on it every few months. I still love my metal navy chair knockoffs (Kmart yeeeaarrrsss ago) but I am wondering if I would like something different. They are a breeze to clean though!
Okay, I am off to go clip some more peonies to take to the shoppe with us today! My bushes have been on fire!! Sure beats having to drive 30 minutes to a store that carries them.
Oh, and a quick question for all you people who know what you are doing out in the garden... am I right to think that if I move 2 of my peony plants this fall they won't produce next year? They are being crowded where they are now and I would rather not have to dig up 2 evergreen bushes to give them room.
Be back soon... I framed my sampler!
bye for now~
