Do you Like to be teased???

























Depends on what the teasing is for me....if it has to do with possible room revamps...I am all for them! NOW if the teasing has to do with my hmmmm short comings (literally)...as to my height....that is a whole other enchilada (NOOO calling me shorty sistaaa). I have been hard at work....getting rid of that hideous...bluey lavendery color....I want to go on record as saying NOOOO I NEVER DID LIKE THAT COLOR BUT........I was stubborn....us short girls often times are. I kept thinking it will grow on me...yada yada. Plus I didn't like wasting the paint....stubborn and not a smart move..."I never said I was the sharpest tool in the shed". This is the one time the stubborn streak did not pay off. Elbow grease to the rescue again..this time a nice soft NEUTRAL. I am playing it safe...and I am liking it people. Safe is good. I first fell in love with this color over at Kim's pad http://owcl.blogspot.com/ JUST the name alone made me swoon. "malted milk"...........ahhhhhh that name! Soooo two walls down.....two to go.....and many projects....in between. The distressed bench you see I painted yesterday white and than...a very light blue (thank goodness I got that color right) and sanded it to an inch of its life...and now today a light glaze.....which is in process in the one pic. The white dresser I have added rope detail to and am going to be glazing it as well. Will share more of it as it comes along. I also have a night stand project to show. It is something we did many moons ago but I never shared it. Sooooo hopefully you enjoy the teasing today! I am off to go glaze some more!
XOXO, cherry

I hate to be teased. Comes from my insecurity I guess? I do love your tins, the wire basket, the clock and that fan! Oh my goodness I would love to find a fan like that! I left one behind in Florida and have been kicking myself ever since! Have fun with your projects! Can't wait to see what you're up to!

Rosemary said...

Teasing is not that fun!!
It kind of drives me crazy.
You are funny!
Malted milk looks good and sounds just as good.
Have fun glazing!
Rosemary

You're teasing me with one of my favorite colors. And the basket of linens- oh my! Can't wait to see the results.

squawmama said...

OK Cherry... Depends on the subject as to which I am teased.... I am not only short but round so to that NO! Loved your new color, Malted Milk, what's not to like with a name like that... Can't wait to see your entire finished project.

'morning Cherry! Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit - I love the sweet things you have in your Etsy shop ;o) We're off on a drive through the countryside this morning so I'll be looking for a few "new" treasures to add to my collection. Hopefully I'll get to post a few pix later tonight! If you are interested there is a Tuesday meme that was started by Christian Women Online, it is called "In Other Words." Here's the link if you want to visit some of the sweet ladies who participate each week: http://shortybearsplace.blogspot.com/ It's lots of fun and you get to meet other women out here in the blogging community! Thanks again, and hope to get acquainted ;o) Nina @ mamas*little*treasures

Lisa said...

Short chicks unite!LOL! Love all your re-dos.

Just a little something from Judy said...

A truck load of my furniture will be arriving at your house shortly. I only request that you perform your magic on each piece. You certainly do have a way of doing that, and I really enjoy seeing the results. "Malted milk" seems like the perfect choice. Teasing...with four brothers and sisters, I've had it all my life.

the wild raspberry said...

isn't glaze one of life's great inventions?!
i am always amazed by your photography...you should have photos in a real book sometime. no kidding.
they are so good.
i love your little snippets you showed. especially the basket of vintage linens. makes me want to run out and buy a basket just like it!

I love being teased 'cause it usually means you are liked! ;)

Wendy said...

Love the pics!

And thanks for stopping by my blog! I wouldnt have thought to keep the tool tray in the kitchen. He did say he already had some, lol. I just have like NO counter space! Between my old oven (off the ground), stove top and sink, I have hardly any room. My counter runs the length of the room, and thats it! I cannot wait to redo this 1962 kitchen!

Kacey R. said...

Alright Miss Cherry, I have to admit, this was just borderline mean & cruel! LOL Those pom poms, those tins, that fan! Oh my! Glorious! I can't wait to see the final result...and please, no more teasing. PLEASE! {lol}

You Big tease! I can't wait to see the rest. Love the color name.

Natalie said...

I love paint names! You've captured my attention - I'm a a sucker for a bit of glazing action!

And I'm kind of coveting that vintage turquoise fan....& the wire basket full of vintage linen!

Melissa Miller said...
