THANKS...AND I AM PAINTING ...AGAIN

THANKS to Heather and all her gang at the Quilt Barn on Saturday. It was great to meet so many very nice people! Their little rural town was having, "Neighborhood Days." They had a parade and fun things to do in the park...wonderful things happen in those small rural America towns!

Well, now on to more painting. My sister said I could have my very own beach cottage feel, and since I already bought and paid for the paint for my laundry room, and still had some left, I painted the main bathroom in my house! Now everything that was red is now AQUA!
And it didn't cost me a dime!
I already had this cute aqua-lime green-and brown table topper from Cotton Way and used it on the floor as a bath mat. I think I will re-make it in September with their new fabric line, BLISS....gota have a bit of red!
The little cupboard over my toilet got a paint job too.....and I shopped through my closets for towels.....and didn't spend any money because I had some white ones and a few odd colors from years past. Love that! Shopping and spending NO money!
Even the little mirror shelf above the sink got a paint job. It matches the already cream bead board walls, I just distressed it and put a coat of stain over to give it some definition different than the walls. WELL, IT IS VERY CREAM and AQUA NOW! And quite cheerful!

You are one handy lady with a paint brush!!! Definitely cottage-y and very pretty. I fear I wouldn't want to step on such a pretty bath mat. :o)

Glad you had a good time - and I love your colors!!! Beach cottage is my all-time favorite way to decorate, and you've done it SO well!

Lovely painting Sheri! Can you come over?
Yes, Bliss would be great in there - I'm cutting out a quilt using Bliss right now!

It looks great. I bet you thought I forgot about your lamp crystal didn't you? Well, I did...for a little while. New baby in the family. I'll get on that right away.

I would love to see your cabnets. I know they look great but a picture always helps.

I can't keep up to all your re-doing, it looks great! Aqua is an addicting color.
