A Before and After…

The other day while I was cleaning out closets and drawers, I came across this chalkboard.  I bought it a long time ago, I don’t even remember where.  Anyway, I bought it thinking I would revamp it a little bit and just never got around to doing it.  As you can see it was scratched up and had some plastic greenery on it that just wasn’t doing anything for me. So, I purchased some chalkboard paint and repainted it, and removed the greenery.  I plan on writing different little sayings on it that would be good for me to remember or just something to make me smile.

I never thought I would see the day where I opted to, “step into the light” so to speak.  I’m still a primitive lover, don’t get me wrong but I am finding myself being drawn to a little lighter version.  It’s funny because when I would read something like this on someone else’s blog I would think, “NO, don’t go there, don’t fall into that trap!”  I guess I feared they were leaving the primitive world behind!   I’m still a primitive, rustic Raggedy Ann, no barbie doll here, just going a little on the lighter side.  With all that said, we did a little painting here at the homestead.  I’ve been looking at some eye candy decorating on Pinterest that I have been drawn to,  made a decision on some paint colors and just went for it.  I didn’t dislike my dining room color before, I just wanted to go with a fresher, simpler look.  So here it is, the before and after.

It looks different in different lighting as rooms always do. 






Of course when we had to empty the cupboard so we could move it, Jasper had to investigate! 


I’ve been slowly trying to make some subtle differences.  I guess I will just take it one day at a time and see what my next plan of action will be.

Flowers Around the Homestead

Good morning everyone!  It will soon be time for school to start and for me to go back to work.  Can’t believe the summer is winding down. 

I thought I would share with you photos I took of some of the flowers I have blooming around here.
