These birds or maybe they are the pheasants? Sat on the entry way table at my Mimi’s house my entire life. She claimed I used to pet them as a little girl and talk about how I loved them and that when I got BIG and had a house of my own they would come live with me! Well, they did and of course I had to spruce them up a bit and as I am referring to this spring/summer as my red & white phase.
I too gave these a dull coat of gray primer and a fresh coat of Churchill Vanilla.
I just love how they all turned out. A crisp fresh mantel.
I can not wait for this craft project! I just. found COLOR chalkboard paint. I can’t believe I didn’t know about this before?!
and in the kitchen I am going to paint the short wall between the entry to the next room .

Which one do you guys like best? My kitchen is a pumpkin color with black and stainless.
The loco for the board will be perfect as it is where I have a current message board and calendar. It will be great to be able to jot messages as well as grocery list.
Jack is about to turn 3 and it is time that I update the current nursery to a big boy room. He is still sleeping in his crib and I shutter to think how this transition is going to go! In my mind expect the worst and it can never actually be that bad, RIGHT?
I have all sorts of ideas and have decided that I am going to start with the bedding and build around that. This is where you guys come in! I’d LOVE to know what you think and I am giving you some very different things to look at and consider. Hubs will be building his bed and my great friend and artist is going to help me paint a mural!!! I do want to do a room that will allow for growth, not something I am going to have to turn around and redo in 2 years.
My first thoughts on a room would incorporate the outdoors, maybe cabin chic? With the mural I want to do trees, water, sky, very earthy/whimisical.
Here are my top picks!!
#1 Ivy League madras plaid
#2 Sageberry Creek Beach Plaid
#3 Blue Camo (could get old?)
I love/like them all and can vision a fantab room around all of these!!
What’s your fav, thoughts, ideas?
