Summer House Living Room Paint
The color is one I mixed up with free paint from the Hazardous Household Recycling Center in Bondurant. It turned out to be a lovely, very light orange, and I used a brick red for accents with stars and the word Rejoice. I decided that each room in the basement would have a one word accent, all appropriate for the room, but also have a deeper spiritual meaning, as well. I am excited to work on each room. And, now that I can easily put pictures up here, instead of needing to upload them several places, I can document it all! I had made a rug from some fun, funky, vintage fabric I had gotten from Sarah, but we all decided it just wasn't heavy enough. So, with the same fabric, plus some more, I am working on making a crocheted rug instead. It should be heavier. It will take some time, though, so it will be a bit before I can get it up. The brick red accents also match my forties vintage cracked ice table and chairs, which we had recovered in a brick red and cream stars fabric years ago. I was excited to finally have them fit in.
In the meantime, I have moved on to start the paint in the summer house kitchen, a bright, beautiful blue. More on that when I am finished.
