Okay, seriously, I have a brain that loves dark and tattered, torn and distressed and then the other side of my brain loves pink and girly, fun and colorful.Since I can't decide on one thing for very long, we are constantly moving and switching things about in the house.
Last week we added lovely deep color to the living/tv room.
and now my mind has wandered to the kitty and laundry room.It was so dark and depressing in there, I cleared it out and added some shabby fun.
Pink polka dot shelf liner, clear jars to make everything brighter. My vintage downy bottle
and my fav is this orb radio found back home in a dive of a thrift shop for $2!! It is most excellent because it picks up the best AM country radio station that plays the real country hits, loretta, cash, patsy....oh my heart loves those crackly sounds of AM radio and vintage hits.
This makeover started by finding a Tender Vittles cat dish that I had as a kid and fed my kitties in growing up. I love the bright red plastic and the heart shaped bowls. My kitties are way to fat to eat out of this vintage little bowl but it looks great as wall art.I want to paint so cool graphics in bright colors that say "WASH IT" over the basket shelf.
The great thing about this room is that it is bright and fun now and even though it doesn't flow with the rest of the home, the door can shut and be my own little happy secret :)I have also been working with fun color, going into my scrap bin from years of working with colorful fabrics. My vintage charms and buttons are finding new homes on these colorful book pincushions. I love the way they are turning out and will soon be listed in the shop :)
Have a Happy Sunday everyone!!!
