It's been quiet here on the blog these past few days. Because it has been a record breaking cold spell. It is now -2 degrees F at 6 AM.

And because I've been knitting and reading and playing Scrabble online getting ready for a Scrabble tournament in Las Vegas next month.  

But mostly because the bathroom and entryways needed painting. That leaves little time for introspection.

So, I took up the cause and got busy with paint.  Here is the bordello red powder room that needed a face lift:

Using Behr's Indulgent Mocha with primer, it now looks lighter.

and a bit brighter

But wait.  There's more. 

This entry it is not yet finished.  It screamed for camera documentation. The door is going to be a bear to paint.

How many aspirin have disappeared during this exercise?  Quite a few.


  1. Oh I love the new look in the powder room! Have a blessed day, no aspirin needed here:) HUGS!

  2. I love the fact that your painting extends to walls and doors as well as silk and canvases! But these jobs are always bigger than one anticipates I find and I have a nasty tendency to spill paint which requires managing! You've given the powder room a lovely Spring lightness although I have to say I love the original colour too! Happy Painting! Hope that tricksy door cooperates - I can see I would run into difficulties over masking off the glass before I even lifted a brush! E x

  3. Fabulous powder room - I love mocha/cream colours - such a lovely plain canvas for some of your paintings too. I plan to paint the walls in the warmer weather. Your entryway looks bright too - nice and fresh. Betty

  4. OOooh I love scrabble! Good luck in the tourney!

  5. Happy New Year Nancy*hugs*
