Lots of Sneak Peeks

So this week has been a full one.

Sick kiddos, hubby is on business, and I have a show to get ready for!!

But not this week.

And as I was cleaning house tonight {like really cleaning},

I realized this past year this hobby that turned into a real business~

 has really been a blessing in such a huge way and fun. 

& I’m so thankful and grateful!! 

But has also taken a huge toll on my own home.

A staircase I started, but got too busy with clients to finish…

My dining room has sat untouched for almost 7 months because if I paint it- it might sell!!

You laugh but I couldn’t say no- so I have replaced it all 2 times. 

You can see here and here..

And this time I really like it all!!

The list goes on…. 

I finally redid my powder bath… that’s it’s own post for sure. Funny and those who have been here are laughing already!!

So this week…

I painted color charts, filled sample pots, and filled a lot of orders.  Lots of orders!!

I repainted a chalkboard wall that holds our calendar and such..

It’s now La Craie Mardi Gras and has a fun low area for Miss Mia to “Create!”-

She’s a little Picasso on everything.. maybe this will save the rest of the house.

Then I worked on some “Old World” metal of my own and lightened things up a bit on one wall… {one wall at a time}

Layers of Magnolia, Silver Mink, Hurricane, and Franciscan Grey


The mirror was one of my first Craigslist finds in Seattle.

I absolutely was hooked from there and actually went back and bought a couple of things from her.

The “Y” is from Junk Salvation Show in Austin this past April..

It had a broken center that they taped but I love all things owls, I mean Y’s so I knew I could add some paint and well Jute!!

She has some further plans but little princess woke up from her nap!!

And then yesterday.. I got the wild hair to paint the hutch in my dining room…

It wouldn’t take long after all.  A nap time should be more than enough.  Not!!

But I love it!! I paint so much for others that I often get tired of my favorite colors.

So, I chose neutral.  It’s done in La Craie Silver Mink and Magnolia and finished off with Dark and Clear Wax…

Just a peek…

I also got down all the Halloween decorations and dressed up the entry, mantel, lights above the island..

But I needed something more and did a fun easy craft of making a rag & jute garland.

Easy to do while the little girl watched her show and didn’t move – poor thing.

Tomorrow, I will start to reveal each project in it’s full glory.

So be sure to stop back in!!
