I've been mentioning
(in just about all my posts)
about the extra space I'm taking on at
when it was just a thought
As soon as I nodded my head to this extra square footage
I got to scavenging, painting, tagging, merchandising...
pull it together Denise!
Read about the new finds HERE
With the extra footage I can do two separate stories.
For now on the new front side
(full frontal is why I took on the new space)
I'm keeping it a little French(ish)
Vintage silver trays painted with Chalk Paint & Chalkboard paint
for message centers.
Classic black & white check
on linen white chairs
painted over duck egg blue
and sanded just enough to show through.
With touches of black
and right around the corner...
A little beach cottage
front and center
soft blue +aqua+cream
I just had to use this vintage rose wallpaper somewhere...
it worked nicely above these warmer colors.
The focal is a set of ten cups and saucers
by Johnson Brothers.
Vintage leather top table
with script stencil...
and I always have a stock of hand painted frames.
Decoupage with post cards, marble top buffet cabinet.
Shelves are always full of
vintage and new finds.
Here's a child's chair big enough to pull up to the family table
an old window frame with a little bird fabric peeking through
sitting on a vintage painted oak buffet dressed up with birds in flight.
The newest piece(s)...
a large, solid, heavy, roomy dresser
my fave duck egg blue
stenciled wood top & doors
topped off with a large, three panel folding mirror.
I'm really excited about spreading my space (and wings)!
I started out with 15 sq. ft. two years ago
and have grown into roughly 168sq. ft. at Leaping Lotus
and another 120ish sq. ft. at Urban Barn
I LOVE IT!
And working (if you love what you're doing it's not work, right)
to keep it filled up and inviting to all who stop by to visit...
Thanks for following along with me...
