~Patriotic to Prim Black~

Hi everyone!
It's a pretty nice day here in PA , right now the sun is out and everything looks so bright, so glad to finally know that the sun will be shining again!!!
Yesterday I was busy painting everything black, headboard, cupboard I found at the flea market, picture frames and then at the last minute I thought of my wastbasket for the bathroom,which isn't really a wastebasket, the lady said it was one of those French things for flowers. I thought it would be great for a wastebasket. I had bought it years ago at the Country Store and since I'm changing my colors I thought it would look really good painted black and I think it came out good, looks brand new to me and only took a few minutes! I can't wait to have everything put back in it's place then I'll have to do my spring cleaning because there is dust everywhere from DH sanding the walls. Right now the only thing in the bath is the bathtub LOL, the walls need a second coat of paint and the new vanity and mirror put in, so hopefully it will be done by this weekend. Then after we get done in here we will be out and about in the yard, the grass needs cut for the first time and windows need washed house hosed down then later we will open the pool and do the porch in the back. We try to get everything done before the last week in May so we can enjoy the boating season, we live close to the Monongahela River and do love our mini vacations on the Mon.
Well, I have to go to the library and to the Dollar Store, I'll be back here tomorrow! Have a wonderful day!


  1. Nice makeover! I'm still waiting to see the others! LOL

    You said something about changing your blog background on my blog. It's not quite as hard as it seems. Once you know what to do, it's not bad. You have to go into Layout and then Edit the HTML. You will find a LONG list of codes. What you are looking for the Scribe layout, is any link...so read the links and you'll see that they have Scribe layout or paper or whatever...you replace THOSE with the link to your new background. I found my stuff through Mandie at "Life in the Craft Lane", saved it to my computer and uploaded to Photobucket. Then you copy the direct link code and plop it in the Edit HTML sections int he right places.

    The thing with the Scribe layout is it's two layers. The bottom layer is the two first links, the other are (there are many) are the top. ANd then you have to tell it to repeat.. LOL It just sounds confusing.

    If you want help, e-mail me and I'll try to help you! imastimer@verizon.net

  2. Looks great, I love the look of black painted furniture

  3. Looking forwards to seeing your bathroom makeover. The wastebasket looks great with it's new paint job.
    A pool sounds great to have in the summer, lucky you! :)

  4. It looks great in black. Hope your feeling better soon.

  5. Love the change! I am always changing the colors of things - most often to black as well, though I have to have some barn red in every room! I need to scroll through your older blogs to see more pics! hugs, Linda
