So many ideas,
like it here, like it there
oh where, of where...
Update on my chippy room makeover
A woman has a right to change her mind, right?
After all that is our nature,
move it here, no wait dear, I like it better over there!!
An update from my last post,
I am replacing the pink Disney Princess border...
I chose bead board to use as a chair rail trim.
After sampling four different techniques
I went back to my old standby:
white paint, sand, and antique with "old english"
I was very pleased with the bead board ,
so pleased in fact I thought maybe...
I should cover the current teal wallpaper
with this chippy white bead board.
Decisions, think girl, think....
stand back take a look, Oh I am really liking this!
I stood up some trim behind my chippy table
Well... yes, no, maybe...
Is there too much white?
Is the furniture is getting lost, blending into the wall,
does it have the "wow" factor.
I think all my whites would stand out much better
against a colored background.
What are your thoughts?
As much as I would like to cover up the old teal paper
it does match the ivy border that I decided to keep in tact.
There is teal in this lovely picture.
I have some ideas on how I can accent the teal paper.
I will share those with you next time.
I have decided on a light gray wash (1/2 paint with 1/2 water)
applied to the cream walls.
As there is touches of gray in the ivy border,
this color should pull that together as well.
I have never put a wash on walls before, all I can vision
is a big mess waiting to happen.
I will have to practice much patient with this technique.
Fun Flea finds
The exciting part of a make over is searching for sweet flea finds.
I was quite lucky this week....
Heavy iron cherub plaques, they will look fabulous
with a print mounted behind
Awesome canvas picture...roosters are not awesome
this frame is so dreamy with the crackle look.
Listen to me...dreamy is not a "primitive" word
guess it is a "chippy" word.
Plans are to decoupage silhouette motifs over the roosters.
Metal box inside a white metal holder,
can hang on the wall or sit on a table...love it
2 white metal candle holders
this adorable figurine.
So sweet, so cheap 2.98
so "old" from Germany,
simply love it
