This is a living room wall. This paint color is called New House White. It is the palest of the whites with red hues by Behr paint. It seems in the morning to appear totally white. I took this picture at it's pinkest. It did not even seem this pink in real life to me. I was surprised when I viewed it on the computer screen by the amount of pink showing up. (But I like it!!)
Here is our lovely, old medicine cabinet. It might be hard to tell, but the bathroom walls are painted Martha Stewart Magnolia Blossom ( a very pale pink).
When my Great Aunt Corrine died I got her kitchen table. NOT her kitchen chairs. My Aunt Kathy took those. Yes, took the chairs. When you are 22 years old, you take what you get.😉 So, after carting this antique table around for all these years, it was not in the best of shape. It is 104 years old now. Solid Maple. It was made by the Wisconsin Chair Company of Port Washington. Not far from here. So cool!
Good thing our second son, Emerson is a carpenter hey?😁 It was all just surface damage. That young man sanded it all down, stained it all to match the original color and varnished it. TA DA!
I know. Not a good picture at all. I just don't have time and I only took the camera with me once to the apartment. I will get another one sometime soon. Really. Notice the leaf is in. We will keep it that way. We are more used to those dimensions of the table. The size compares to our present kitchen table which we are selling with the house.
The three chairs seen here are the ones I got for $5 a piece. They needed a little wood glue, and I put new fabric on the seats. I think they are cute. The three other chairs we bought are T backs. So a little mix and match. Oh well!
The grey vinyl flooring you see is in the dining area and the kitchen. The rest of the apartment has wood floors.
More pictures to come my friends! That is it for today though. I have been packing, packing and unloading, unloading. REPEAT! It is nice that we live only one mile from the apartment. We can run loads of boxes over there when we fill up the car a few times a week. The BIG, final move is next Thursday.
I have been figuring out valances. I had some pink and some white linen in my stash already. I had to order some very pale pink linen. I went to JoAnn and bought some black linen. All the valances will be linen at this house. I have never done the same thing with my curtains or valances over the years at any of our four homes or our first apartment! I enjoy creating new styles.😊
Well, I must get back to packing. Then I will take a break and sew for a bit. For now the cross stitch sits on the side.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed a look into my new world. I always enjoy having you, so come again!
Sewing and praying,
