Moving right along!







I thought I would pop in for a sec and let ya know that I am almost done with the painting...actually I WOULD be DONE DONE...but I ran out of paint and uhhhh Lowes is 40 miles away...so that will be a couple days coming till that is taken care of. Soo just one small oval shape area of the horrid lavender blue left. I did how ever start on my FAUX roman shades. I made them out of burlap....and I am loving it! The pic here is not the greatest but I think you get the gist of the look. It is after 9:00 here so the sun has set. I love how the light filters thr0ugh the burlap. The only natural light in our master is these french doors and side lights...so I don't want anything heavy. Other than that...we have moved the ole Mexicani armoire in here so that is another change....works a lot better in this space. Well that is the direction I am headed...light airy and of course vintage. I am off to bed.............the painting ..especially vaulted areas...not so good on this chick's back. XOXO, Cherry

Hi Cherry
I have enjoyed catching up with your blog today. I love your faux shades, they look great. Good luck with finishing off your painting. I look forward to seeing the completed room. Your before and afters are lovely and I really like your 4th July decorations. How long now until you go to Disney? Your son must be getting so excited. If you let me know your e-mail, you can view my Disney pictures blog to get you in the mood!

Hi Cherry
You've motivated me to make some patriotic decorations.
I can't believe I don't have any.
Thanks for the inspiration!

Just a little something from Judy said...

I can't imagine living 40 miles away from a Lowe's store. Eagerly look forward to seeing the finished room.

I've got to get me some burlap and use it some place in my house. Those shades are so great! Can't wait until you travel 40 miles, get another can of paint, drive 40 miles home, and finish the room and show it to us. At least in the car, you are not reaching to paints, so maybe that can be a little bit of break. laurie

Jeni said...

Oh man....can't wait to see when you are done though. I love clocks.

Kim said...

Loving those clocks! And, yeesh! 40 miles to Lowes! I hope that you've at least got a Target or a Walmart closer. Otherwise, I'd never even get a lightbulb changed :)

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

Love what you did with the burlap! My apologies that your Lowes is so far, I love that place! Ours is about 15 minutes, not too bad.

Cherry, I really like the burlap roman blind. It looks great. I also love the collection of clocks - I have a thing for old clocks as well. Everything you put together looks so good.

Myohmy!!! You sound JUST like me!! I have our stair banister and door trim to paint still...but isn't it a great feeling to change the look of a room with paint? Cannot wait to see your results!

BTW, your ETSY items are adorable!!

Jo said...

You are way ahead of me! I am trying to decide what shade of white {who knew there were so many} to paint our master bedroom. Then I'll start on window treatments.

Wow, I can't believe Lowe's is so far away ~ I thought they were everywhere!

Jo

nicolette said...

Is the golden glow on the clock from the light, or from the sunset filtered through the burlap? Either way, they look great.

Perhaps you should suggest Lowe's to open a store closer to you?

I was so happy to see your Roman Shade, I had not seen any around blog land yet and the idea has been playing in my head to do this to our sliders in our kitchen eating area. Your inspires me to actually make my idea into a reality.

love your blog!

kim said...

I just found my way to your blog from "Sweet Cottage Dreams." I'm so glad I followed the link. I love your style; it's just lovely. That basket, the one between the two straw hats, is just like the one I used to carry my books to school in so many years ago. Thanks for the memory!
Blessings,
Kim

Christy said...

Wow I love those burlap shades! Brilliant. I have been searching for an inexpensive but still pretty alternative to store bought shades. Thank you, thank you for the idea :)
