Since my last blog post, BIG things have happened!
We’ve moved into the Dutch colonial!
I am SO happy!
Right now, my own pet project has been making myself a sewing studio.
I’m squeezing it inside an odd, L-shaped closet,
the space for which came from the large front staircase foyer of our house.
To amuse myself, I call my room
My Tribute To Where Women Create Magazine.
If you don’t know what that means, it’s using old stuff, + lots of it!
I started with this groovy cupboard,
which used to be our house’s laundry chute.
Of course, I’ll blog about all this in greater detail (stay tuned!)
Today’s obsession, however, involves our new kitchen light fixtures.
At long last — we’ll have lighting over our sink!
I say at long last because, as is my way, I couldn’t decide!
It’s the Logan Goose Neck outdoor wall sconce from Ballard Designs.
I loved everything about it, but the red was off.
The catalog photo didn’t look like MY red,
but after a few months, I went ahead + took the plunge.
It wasn’t the red that’s happening now.
It has an antique glaze brushed on it.
See for yourself:
Back in the day, during my primitive country phase,
I would have been head over heels!
My taste has evolved since then,
+ I am currently digging a more bright + clear red.
Let’s compare + contrast:
My new red is the brighter red of that spatter ware plate.
Here ’tis again in our kitchen clock:
+ yet more on these kitchen design choices:
Soon, I’ll sew something,
using 1 or more of these awesome vintage fabrics:
Yum, amIright? Definitely stay tuned!
But back to the light fixtures’ getting their bright red makeover.
Of course, when one is me, one already has a can of red spray paint.
Rustoleum Gloss Apple Red!
When one is me, one also asks G.O. to please spray paint
our brand, new light fixtures.
As we speak, he is now doing this latest project for me,
+ digits crossed he’ll be able to hang those lights for me, TO–day!
