Just a Change of Color



I promised you I'd show you the finished product.
The laundry room is actually too hard to show the improvement...
So, in that room it is all clean, you heard that...did I tell you that the painter also fixed the screen on the window of the door? Yeah, he removed the screen, cleaned the window and then replaced the screen with an all new screen.
I had so much light in there!
Problem is that light streams into the bedroom and wakes us up.
So, I created a roman blind... (I didn't measure...hence the waterfall effect...)
(Never mind the view outside....)
In the bedroom....


Funny how it is the same color paint now, throughout the house and in different lights is it looks more gray! It's a good thing...the drapes are gray...now they make sense...
It's a good thing...now to attack some of the other projects that need doing.
Yesterday...I cleaned out my cupboard in the family room...it's my "workbench"...where I keep my tools and glues etc...
The goal there is to clean the garage and get have a new workbench built...so my tools can live there and the cupboard can become more toy storage.
It seems that I have quite a few toys and coloring books etc...that need organizing....
Isn't it interesting after you have things painted it leads to other things...just a simple change of color...in one room starts a "chain reaction" of projects...big and small.
I don't know, maybe it is the unseasonal cool weather that feels like fall that has triggered this in me.
Just a change of color...
What projects have you got going?

Almost Good As New

If you have been reading the blog, you know what happens when you spray Lysol on Oil Rubbed Bronze door handles. Yeah, not pretty. And, a very expensive mistake...or at least it can be.
Behold....(as a reminder)

It basically just takes the finish off!
So, I asked you readers what I should use to fix it, not wanting of course to take the set off and take it to a refinisher who would charge upwards of $300 to fix it.....
So, One wonderful reader mentioned, Rub n Buff.....
That was an "Ah ha" moment.....
Except that around here, Rub n Buff seems to only come in gold, brass and patina....not what I was looking for.......
So, I went online and happily I found, Rub n Buff comes in a multitude of colors! Now, they don't have Oil Rubbed Bronze (that's too easy), but they had Ebony (black) which most closely resembles our Bronze color, as it is the darker one.....
So, I experimented on an inside door handle that was very brassy....
And although I am not going to show you the …

A Little bit of This and That

I need to sew, something everyday, or I get grumpy!
Today, it was a pillow....ah.....
I found a cross stitch panel that someone had done, and fell in love with it. It's actually a covered bridge, but it looks kinda like a barn...so I took it home, no idea at all what to do with it.
Today, it hit me....a pillow!
When I went to the closet, I found a pillow form....sweet!!
The panel was almost the right size, at least width wise....height wise it was a tad short. I measured and sure enough it was almost 5" different...so, I went to the closet again and found 2 1/2' strips from another project...perfect! So, I used those on each end....
So what about a backing....hummmm. I love linen. The family room, where this may end up is being painted a taupe grey....so into my drawer where linen lives, and there was a remnant from another project...grey linen....
So, long story short....I literally just stitched it together....and made it an envelope closure...that I stitched closed wit…
