Do you remember when I thought I was finished with the entry? I loved the blue painted chest and then I really loved the wooden piece I found for the top of the blue chest. I loved the pale aqua plates.
But, I wasn't completely happy with the whole picture.
Enter -pale blue/aqua and cream buffalo check wallpaper and new paint color.
My walls were textured so that meant sanding them down and then four light coats of sheetrock mud with sanding in between each coat. YUCK - that fine dust covered everything in the house even tho the doors were all covered in plastic and tape.
But, it came out so smooth and even. I hadn't even found the paper I wanted yet. While I was visiting my sister there was a small shop that still stocked wallpaper and I found the perfect paper.
The same day we went to this craft consignment shop and I found this vintage architectural piece already painted. When I got it home, it was the identical color of my cabinet underneath.
When I got the wallpaper hung, the white that had been painted to prime the new walls was too white. So, off to Lowe's to get a cream colored paint to match the wallpaper.
My sister Jean came for a few days and helped me paint the other three walls of the entry. The wallpaper ended up only on one wall.
Then sister Rita came over for a day and they helped me hang pictures and do various things to help me get ready for a brunch I'm doing the end of the month.
Aren't sisters the greatest?
Remember the Singer Bentwood Sewing Machine case I bought for $20.00? Well, I finally got it open and guess what was inside?
A beauty of a vintage Model 99 Singer sewing machine complete with the knee pedal and perfect little box full of vintage Singer attachments!! I was thrilled.
Will be sharing with you in the next couple of weeks the completion of several products I am trying to finish up before the brunch. But,this is my "Bronzer Bunch" of friends I've had for over 40 years so they will understand that my "work room" is really my "work room". LOL
