Welcoming 2016
      Are you excited about the New Year? 

      I am thrilled to get things rolling… 
      I’ve been working on a clients home & we are finally getting to the finishes.
       I can’t wait to show you the project before & afters when we are complete.

      Meanwhile here at the French farm house renovation it’s quite the mess!!!
       A good ole sawdust, paint, stone work, tile, flooring, trim best kind of mess. 

       Saturday “Designing with Vintage” No. 11 
      at home…

      Something utilitarian as a built in ironing board I would painted to match the trim work in the space.

      We installed this one & it looked like a box on the wall, which it is… and boring at that!

      I was scouting vintage doors & I found this vintage european shutter.
      I fell in love with the winter white shade of chippy paint & rusty hinge. 
      It appeared to be the perfect width.
      I have a pretty good tape measure built into my eyes!
      I LOVE it! 
      A little trim on the bottom & some special sealer so the perfect little chippy paint won’t chip of.
       I wanted to add some character to the face of the ironing board door and give it the look of
       a 
      cute little cupoard.

      Eventually this will be moved to the new laundry room. 
      Next week I’ll show you why!!!

      Let’s create & enjoy the beauty around us…

      I love it too Gail, and so wish you would hurry….in a nice way of demanding, so we can, or I can enjoy the fruits of your labor.
      Love the shutters, and the hinges I have some just like them waiting to use them on something like hinging shutters.

      See you soon I hope? 🙂
