Quick Post

I have been cleaning up some of the loose ends in my studio and thought I would share a photo or two.

I love the color and look forward to finishing it up.  I have one little area to paint, but need Big's help and she is out of town (again).

While moving things around, I came across this photo of the baby.  She and I used to live in a little "shot gun" duplex.  As you can see, we had built in shelves and The Baby, loved to crawl in them and play.  Isn't she a cutie?  She still has that baby blanket and pillow.  It is at home waiting for her to graduate from college.


Remember this horror?

 
It started to become this wonderfulness!


Here is a finished part of the room.  I don't remember what these little areas are called.  Do you know?  Anyway, there is an old sewing machine in the space now.  The machine was a gift from a good friend - thanks Lisa!

 
I will post more photos as I get the room ready.  I have been doing a lot of sewing and have not taken much time to organize.  At least the Pepto Bismol pink is gone!
 
Oh yeah, look what I had for dinner!

 
  Pin It Now!

That is definitely better than Pepto Bismol. I'm looking forward to seeing the room finished, I bet it's going to look great.

The new paint looks fantastic ! Much much better than lolly pink.

That soup is my favourite soup ever.Many times I've cursed Kirsten for introducing us to it.

Alcoves? Dormers? (The name for those little spaces.)

Wow, what a nice wall color. It's very tranquil, as opposed to the pink. I don't think I've seen that little trompe l'oeil painting on the pink wall before this.

It's going to be a lovely space!

Cute photo of your Baby--those childhood days pass too quickly!

I think you mean a dormer window. Maybe. Can't really tell from the photo. Glad you are eradicating bad colors and "art"!

I am always so excited by the change fresh paint can make, especially when it's replacing a colour you truly don't care for. Thanks for sharing your space here.
