~Beautiful Morning and a Sneak Peek~

This is what I woke up to at 6AM...isn't it just beautiful, it just makes you so glad to be alive! So of course I had to take a picture for you to see also:) Here is a sneak peek of the trim...yes, I went with the blue that I darkened with the walnut stain, I figured if I didn't do it now I never would, this is in the keeping room and will also be in the livingroom. Michele liked it so I knew it looked good because I know she would have told me if she didn't like it:)
It's coming along good, we worked all day yesterday and the day before and even did the back porch...hanging my swing and getting the porch furniture all out, I had a good time decorating it. I'll post pics of it when we open the pool, that is next on the to do list...the weather hasn't been hot enough to do any swimming so whenever he wants to do it is fine with me. Right now he is draining water off the pool cover so should be ready in a couple days, I want everything done so that we can enjoy the summer.
Let me know what you think about the color of the trim...I have been trying to visualize in my head how I will be decorating these two or should I say three if you include the diningroom, I'll be using a little patriotic, not alot because I think sometimes you can have just to much and I don't want that, I'm really excited about it and I think my next thing to do when done is to stencil the rooms, I know Stush would draw a straight line for me to follow but I'll think about that later:)


Have a great Monday and can you believe it is June 1st? Sydney has the rest of this week and then school is out for the summer, then I'll have two mornings that I get to sleep in a little:)

  3. I love your new look Rondell and you will enjoy the color. I just re-painted our trim after 21 years of having williamsburg blue, very similar to what you just painted. The only difference was I didn't put stain over it. I never really tired of it but decided I would change up a bit. Can't wait to see more pics. Enjoy your blog...keep sharing! Sherrie

  6. Oh My I just love your trim color. The stain makes is so antiqued to. I am a red girl but that could sway me for sure. I looks so good with the flooring.
    You have been so patient and it is all going to be so worth the wait.

  13. I love that color blue. I used to have blues all throughout our entire first floor. After 20 years of blue, I decided to switch it up to greens. Now I'm back to wanting blues again. Thanks for the inspiration!
