Last post, I promised to give you some “behind the scenes shots” of our column’s photo shoot for the September/ October issue.  

We styled three beautiful fall tables and I wanted to share them with you in a bit more detail.  

BUT.

My photos are too large to post to the blog….and with computer technology NOT being my strong suit, I am unable to resize them correctly.

As soon as I’m able to do that, I will post them.

Until then, I thought I’d share a little before and after of a paint project we completed a couple of months ago.  (If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve already seen this, so you can stop reading here, LOL!)

I never get to complete things in my own home, but it had really gotten past time for new paint.  Along with the walls, ceiling, and trim, I wanted to paint my brick fireplace and hearth.  

Hubby was against it.  

Forgiveness/ Permission.

I will go for forgiveness every time.  (You can do that after 23+ years.)

Just ask him next time you see him about the morning he woke up and there was a hole in the roof.  A BIG hole.

(Being married to a contractor has it’s drawbacks perks!)

We REALLY needed some dormer windows. 

But that’s another story.

So- I decided to paint the brick after long thought.  

Here is the after.

I also carried the color over to my french doors. It helps define the space better, and lets you know that they are part of this room, and not the kitchen.

That’s the beauty of paint.  

A huge difference for a small cost.  

And if you tire of it, it’s easy to change.

Just be sure you know the undertones of the colors you are considering, and be sure they compliment (and not contrast) with the fixed elements of the room.  And if you need help deciding, give me a call…
