brighten things up

Let's paint stuff~

ahhhh pretty!

I finally decided on dining room colors.. yellow and white walls.

Top half of wall: light yellow
Bottom half and trim: white
And I want to use lots of reds, aquas, black, white, etc.. lots of color.
The room now is yellowish green and colonial red ( same colors go through the living area to).

I found these gorgeous yellow and white checked curtains at the Goodwill on Saturday. I also got the pillow , black table cloth and coffee mugs while thrifting this weekend.

They've been washed and ironed.. and I had to try them out.

And they are absolutely perfect!!
The chandy is getting a make over to....
It's first coat of red paint is drying.

That's all for now, I promised little Selfie Spoonful that we'd go on a roller skating adventure today.

Lovely colour choices - I am really liking the aqua/red combination at the moment and yellow is always such a cheery colour. Your jug looks great with its fresh coat of paint and I love the red chandelier!
