I love this photo! Two guys, simply doing their jobs. Because of the hard work of everyone in the area of the fire, it will, hopefully, be fully contained by the end of today.
This past week the air quality has been very poor at times, and residents have been advised to stay indoors. Amy and I decided to use the time to paint our living room and foyer. We make quite a team, she and I, and I think our painting skills are getting to be pretty good.
Here are a couple of before pictures…
Living room and dining room.
I chose a dark green color called Edamame!
The doorway between the living room and dining room. Edamame and Drizzle look good next to each other.
My new writing desk! I’m sitting at it right now, writing this!
For a couple of years I’ve been holding on to some palm tree barkcloth that I bought in Honolulu the last time we were there. I’d planned to cover a chair with it. But I’ve been trying hard to save money and make do with what I already have, and so I decided to make curtains out of it. I couldn’t be more pleased.
From 80’s eyesore, to a vintage inspired tropical retreat. I may not ever need to go outside again!
I’ve missed all of you this past week! I’ll be visiting blogs today and doing some catching up! Have a good day, everyone! xx
