Here's another peek at my living room-in-progress -
a little vignette of Industrial-Elegant-Cottage style.
This is area just to the right of the front door as you walk inside.
The "mail drop" is located here.
I collect the mail in a primitive tray.
This is the reason my front door looks like this:
and my front window has a cracked pane.
The evil post man is going to invade our home!
Or so this girl thinks...
Now I ask you, does this look like the face
of a sofa-eater? Sweet and innocent, she is.
Anyway, I am going for a very eclectic feel.
I want elegance, industrial and cottage
all mixed together without looking insane!
A French-style mirror, painted whiteish.
A bronze metal medallion
mounted on wood, painted gray
and hung inside an empty gilded frame.
A lovely French lady in a fancy gilded frame...
A very chippy off-white frame, with the wire still attached.
Vintage books, a gilded bird nest and twig...
A vintage English chest of drawers
with bronze knobs...I painted it flat white...
and a white primitive tray.
A vintage metal file cabinet...
A vintage metal house number...
...and a bronze candlestick.
An unlikely grouping of items
all put together to achieve
an interesting and cohesive mix.
Inch by inch progress. Thanks for
being here to celebrate each inch with me!
Word of the Day:
New King James Version (NKJV)
24 Nevertheless to remain in the flesh
is more needful for you.
25 And being confident of this,
I know that I shall remain and
continue with you all
for your progress and joy of faith,
26 that your rejoicing for me
may be more abundant in Jesus Christ
by my coming to you again.
