House Update


Hello...hope you are all having a smashing great day :0) 
Today I thought I would put up some photos of my new house. And the things that I have been doing to it. Lots and lots of Annie Sloan was bought and used!!! I have shared a lot of these photos on IG...but not here for the blog.
Enjoy :0)
 
I will start with my obsession with old wooden frames!!! I have been collecting for awhile now. I finally decided to hang them up...

Layering them inside of each other...just makes me sooo happy :0)


The framed painting on the left I got at a consignment shop for 10.00...I was expecting to remove the painting...but decided to keep it. The frame on the right I painted and added a chalk board to it...It is my note keeper.

I have been looking for a large clock for my Family room forever !!!! I did not expect to find it a Walmart. The outside was dark brown...I added AS and then distressed it.
The back was clear plastic...so I had to glue Kaffe fabric on the plastic so you could see the numbers. (My walls are cream and the numbers are cream)
I found this coffee table at a garage sale as well. It is pretty dirty here...and a little to distressed...so I hit it with AS....lol!!! (told you I used lots of that paint)

 I wanted a table runner...so I dug into my vintage doilies stash. The 3 in the middle are brand new...but I had a problem.... I didn't want to waste good doilies on a section that would never be seen under the tray I found. So I saved the real old ones for the outsides.




Bought all my chairs at garage sales or consignment...super cheap. Of course....I Annie Sloaned them all. 
Then took my FAVORITE fabric line and covered them. (Kaffe Fassest) Each chair got a different color.

Both sides are done...for whatever reason I forgot to take a photo of the other side. :0)
Our Bedroom so far.... Haven't done much here...was saving it for last. I have a big pile of antiuqes laying all around and stuffed under the bed. One day I will work on this room. 

I had to hit this bottom step with Annie Sloan as well. In the dark you couldn't see the last step...and we have all falling a couple of times.  Now we can see in the dark...that there is one more step.

And finally the family room. I took all the little stuff down on the shelves on the right..to much was going on. Not sure about the art work. (made by Me) May take it all down and do something different. 

It's a wait and see game now. If it starts to bug me..I will change it.

I have lots more to do...but as I am couch bound at the moment it will all have to wait.

I am up to 22 pieces that I have hit with the Annie Sloan chalk paint. LOVE that stuff!!
On the right of my blog is a Studio button....you can see the really big pieces that I painted there.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. 

Much love...

To put it simply - I LOVE it all. Such good ideas - from changing the Wal-mart clock, to different fabrics on the chairs - and best of all is painting that last step! We have the same problem in my mother's house. We've all fallen and been injured, such an easy way to solve it.

Nesting frames inside other decorative frames! What an excellent idea. Everything in the house looks fantastic. I bought a can of the creamy AS paint at the shop on Cave Creek Rd. where we took the class with Karen last year. I have yet to use it. I don't know yet if we have anybody selling AS paint here in Flagstaff but will look at Home Depot and the True Value store soon. If I can't find any in town, I'll need to order online. I want some colors to go with my Santa Fe colors that I'm doing all around the house, a little at a time.

Keep up the great work and the healing.
Hugs, Marrianna

Great fun to see pictures of your home and what your doing! I NEED TO TRY THAT CAULK PAINT! I feel I'm missing out!

Hello Sandra,

I love the idea of putting the frames inside of each other. Painting the bottom step sure makes it show up better. Love the doilies being reused as well for the table runner.

Happy days.
Bev.
