So we have finished another area...the hallway. We also would love to announce that we sold our other home and closed on it the Friday before Memorial Day. What a wonderful relief that was to be the owners of only one home. It was not the financial burden but more the responsibility of managing two homes that was so daunting. So now we can focus on our lives here on the lake. We are purging some stuff and reorganizing and that feels good too. Always good to get rid of things you don't need and give them to someone else who can use them, right?
I am excited to post pictures of our previous home and will do that soon. I loved that place and will miss it dearly. A beautiful family purchased it and they will love it as much as we do.
Ok. so on to the hallway and sitting area transformation...
Here is the BEFORE:
This was all stuff that was left in the home upon closing that we bagged up and got rid of...what a mess!
and here it is AFTER
This little basket is from TJ Maxx and the linen piece I found at a local antique store. The nesting doll is from Moscow, Russia and the sea shells are part of a collection that my mother started when we were in Panama. Just a few treasures.
This cute little table was found recently at an estate sale here in town and I thought it matched my chairs perfectly, don't you think so too?
Wall Paint is Kilim Beige by Sherwin Williams
Trim Paint is Shoji White by Sherwin Williams
The unframed oil on canvas was a painting that my mother started just before she passed away from pancreatic cancer. I just love it and it reminds me of her life...unfinished yet beautiful.
I hope you like it and look forward to reading what you think!
Sorry it has been so long since my last post. We have been doing a little of this...
I am joining these fun parties!
