I Spend My Days Doing This

Oh yes...on any given day...you can find a paint brush in my hand. Do I have any company out there...I know...I must not be alone...am I? I'm spending alot of time painting for my business, but I still spend lots of time painting here at my home. So far this year, I have painted my kitchen, a sideboard and today I started on my primitive china hutch. Since I went with another color theme in my kitchen, it meant that I needed to change several pieces of furniture in there, isn't that how it always happens? I'm so ready to have this room all put together, but it's just taking a tad bit longer, since I have so many things to paint for the shop. Speaking of my business...Coastal Charm Interiors...I'm heading out of town Friday morning for two days of pickin'...can't wait to see what I can find.
                                   Happy that you came by,
                                               Linda


                                Any guesses what color I'm
                                         painting her?
                                  Love her old glass doors!
                             See my new wall color? Now you
                             know why this piece needed a new
                                               color.
                              Charming old beadboard.
                  A peek at my sideboard...better pics coming soon!
                                I found one of B'day gifts
                                myself...come on...I know
                                some of you are guilty of
                                            this too!
                            Thrifty me...found her in an antique shop
                            on Magazine Street in New Orleans for
                                            just $15.00!!!

I love that old cabinet! It has a lot of storage. The old seltzer bottle is really cool.

Looks like you had a great time in New Orleans. I'd love to go back some day.

Looks fabulous already. Can't wait to see it all. Hugs, Marty

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Beautiful hutch and I love that console table, Linda! I'm on the look out for something similar for my sunroom ~ I can decorate the top and put my granddaughter's toy baskets on the bottom shelf. Love the colors!

I do know what you mean ~ since I painted my dresser with Duck Egg, I have a half round table that I keep seeing another color. Since it is also in my master, I'm thinking that might have to be added to the list!

I LOVE your brick floors under your buffet table. Did you have the floor installed or did you do it yourself?

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Flea Market Makeovers said...

I love the style of that hutch! Yes, I paint every day too :-)

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

To answer some questions about my brick floors...they were in our home when we purchased it 16 years ago...pro's...easy to clean and they never show dirt (love that about them)...con's...NONE! Love these floors!

Blessings,
Linda
