Big Beautiful Backsplash

Here’s a little reminder of how the kitchen looked when we moved in.  Note in the first picture there is an upper cabinet beside the window.  To the left of it, above the fridge is another, shorter cabinet, slightly useless since it’s so far back.  You know the type, you may even own one yourself.… Continue reading Big Beautiful Backsplash

Spots Before My Eyes

So as much as I love a bold statement and am crazy about how this Kelly green shouts out “LOOK AT ME” to you all, it still wasn’t enough. I know, I know, to some of you it’s already too much but you also know me enough to say, yeah, she needs more. Here’s what… Continue reading Spots Before My Eyes

Of course, I do my best thinking when I should be sleeping, and it was on one of those nights that I… Continue reading Black walls – Trending – And I’m all IN!

I See a Red Door and I Want it Painted Black…

  For all you younger gens, the title I chose for this post is a famous Rolling Stones song about depression, or Anger, or Angst or maybe all three.  It just seemed like a clever lead in to my next few projects that I want to share with you. Because I love clever. One of… Continue reading I See a Red Door and I Want it Painted Black…

Bathtub Blues ? Perhaps Not.

Here we go!  First project completed.  I have about 5 on the go, including painting “planets” for Village Church’s summer camp.  So fun, but daunting – they still need to look excellent, even if they are for kids. (kids come with judging parents, you know.)  But more on that later. The first project I speak… Continue reading Bathtub Blues ? Perhaps Not.
