Painting

A very original title, I know. The thing is, I love to paint . . . furniture that is. I'm not sure if I'd like to paint walls so much. The last thing I painted was our hall-way shelves, green, while listening to Lorna Doone on unabridged audio. I love unabridged audio; abridged does not suffice. And now I have been listening to The Lord of the Rings while I paint my bedroom furniture the color of fresh cream. The light color brings out the carve-work beautifully. I will probably give this one another coat, and there is the rest of my furniture, but this is the start.

I finished this up this morning, and will move on to The Two Towers~

Your room is going to be so lovely! That paint is flattering to that bedroom set, I think. Enjoy your listening and painting. I wish I could listen with you!
Lovely hair.

Livi, you must visit this blog.

It is called "mustard seed creations" and it is full of wonderful ideas. Your painting immediately reminded me of it. It has much to entice you, but I especially recommend that you click on the "before & after" link in her side bar. She has done some amazing things with the most inexpensive pieces of furniture acquired at thrift stores and garage sales. She's now turned this into a lucrative cottage industry. I have been drooling over her creations ever since I discovered the blog.

Oh Olivia,
I love painting and listening to books on tape at the same time!
I looks so pretty.
