I recently refinished the hardwoods and painted the walls a nice cottage linen by Glidden. I was afraid the new sofa would blend in to the wall color to much, but I quite like the look of the 2 different colors of *linen*. I'm so glad I didn't have to re-paint the walls. I made the tall white cupboard at the end of the sofa. I made a door for it but decided to take it off and use it to display my antique quilts, iron collection and old books. The yellow room in the distance is soon to be repainted. Its the front porch/entrance. We took the door off and since we never use it to come and go I use it for plants and the dogs dishes.
Here's the matching chair. I just love the stripes. They remind me of ticking fabric. I had a 1940's rocker before. And as charming as it was, it scratched my floors so bad and it wasn't really comfortable. This one is perfect !
Never mind the 500 pound refrigerator in the background of the last photo. New appliances are next on the list. I'm looking for a reproduction 1940's one. Not easy to find, and very spendy.
For some reason I can't make ALL of my photos X-large. Hmmmmm. One more thing to figure out in blog land.
I have more pictures (lots) to share. This is the first of many to come. . .
