Heads Up...

I guess this post could be filed under several topics, but firstly it would have to be the top contender for "you don't know how wrong something looks until you photograph it and then put it out on the blog for thousands of people to see". The next category would be "coming super late to the party". 



The second category, first...
This is my first shot at Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.
I know, I know....
don't judge me for being a little slow to get to the party.
LOVE this paint...
dried quick, distressed so easy,
but then you ALL know that don't you?


I've had a can of Old White for over a year, but when you have a husband that's sick
or any kind of family issue, most projects just don't happen...nope. not happening.


(He's much better, long road...but better.
Inner ear surgery for Meniere's Disease)


I've had this wonderful old piece of detailed wood hanging out in the garage for months, taunting me to get my rear in gear and paint it. 





but when I saw this photo (below) from a post I did back in March I cringed,
'cause the teensy header I had was lost on the door and flanking windows.
(btw, this post was my highest viewed post ever)



So I finally got around to doing the deed and hopefully making the entry look a little more thought out. I love using old headers and furniture remnants to help beef up the moldings above the room openings. This space could use something even bigger, but until then, I think this will work.

Skinny moldings must have been all the rage in 1982...

This one is above the Entry in the Dining Room.


another smaller one heading toward the Kitchen.



Here is the culprit from the entry that found a new home in the Hallway, 
going into the Dining Room.
(I need to straighten it up a bit)



 from the Hall into the Powder Room
(and no, that's not dust on the door panels,
I just like a gray film all over things...)




But here's my fave baby of them all.
The hunky piece that got me started on this.



I swooned over those scallops.



In the Kitchen going to the Living Room.


That's just one little thing I can cross off my to-do list.

and a note from Tornado Alley...
we're all so so tired of this.
