I Missed You

Good morning sweet blogging friends
I have missed you!  I miss hearing from you.  I miss visiting you in your homes/blogs.  I miss sharing with you when I have done something new.  So I am posting something today.  Don’t know if I will be posting a lot or not, just have to wait and see!
You remember my blue and white living room?

 Some spray paint on an old lamp.
 A coffee table found on craigslist painted with white chalk paint.  Don’t you love Chalk paint?  Haven’t tried it yet?  You are missing out on some fun and easy painting!
 New slipcovers on our 46 year old chairs.  Oops, just noticed I took the pictures before I hemmed the skirt on the chairs!
 Steal a lamp and some books from another room.  (Shop the house)
                               Add a quilt I made a few yeas ago.  I named it Wow in Red.
 Steal another lamp from the TV room. ( more shopping the house)
 Take a mirror and antique washstand from another room, more shopping the house.  What is so fun about shopping the house is the price!
 And we have a new living room!  I spent less than $200.
Still have a bit more to do, but I was excited to show it to you now.
Awhile back I said that I wanted to have my home be more calm.  That’s when I painted the living room walls white.  Then awhile ago I started thinking about a red check fabric that I’d seen on Tina’s blog, Cherry Hill Cottage , ( oh my goodness, that was in 2011!) and I decided just to go for it.
I’m working on the dining room next.  It used to have red walls, but when we decided to sell our house a few years ago, I painted it in the pale yellow so it was more neutral color.  So glad we decided not to move after all.
Imagine how great it is going to look at Christmas!

Hope you are having a very good day and the sun is shining on you.  Rhondi xo
