A new  up date to share on my flip of rooms.

I was sure there was an old round coffee table shoved back somewhere out in the shed that I wanted to have my husband go out into the cold and search for.  He said it was way back in the shed under alot of other stuff.  I was feeling a little guilty about saying please dig and get it for me so I can see if it works in the room!!!! Well so glad I did not let the guilt I was feeling of him having to rearrange the shed to get to the table because...... In his search he found these chippy old shutters that were hidden and I forgot about!!!! Well those little chippy treasures needed to come in from the shed too.  As alot of you know I love old chippy re purposed things with history.  So these were salvage finds from an old farmhouse that I adopted and saved from the trash and I thought to myself some day I will find some place for these beauties. Well I did.



My living room wall over the sectional is coming together with these little treasures.

I hate that thermostat is there I will have to think of something clever to cover that ugly thing up.

Just love the shutters with my old chippy window and the white wreath (from HomeGoods)  I had over my mirror looks so good with the white chippy shutters.  I like the way this all came together.  I again wish my camera would capture the pictures better but it really is pretty and chippy in there now.

  12. How about starting an online decor consulting business. I could sure use some of your help.
    Also, please pass on our thanks to your DH for going out to find the shutters. They are fantastic. How did the round table work out?

  14. wow. what a 'find'....=) the shutters look great.

    idea for that thermostat:
    move shutters a bit further out, and hang then out from wall a bit.

    other idea: drape some fabric off of shutters...attach at inside top edge of shutter tops, and drape out near thermostat. some hanging straight down by shutter, but other out, like a curtain would be. (like Priscilla curtains used to hang.)
    hard to describe...but so clear in my mind. =)
    will see if I can find pic.

  15. or...uh, oh. my brain is going now.)
    attach across whole top of shutter, over about foot from top, and tie back. still Priscilla idea, but more of shutter showing.

    Well, you know, just play...I think it would be really cute...

    1. Hi Leena,
      The coffee table just did not work in the space too round and the legs to much scroll to them. I loved my old cedar chest I painted white but it does not work in the new room either. I think I may have to go with a square table of some kind to fit the space. I am on the hunt or will have the hubby make me something. So no table yet. I have cute things to put on a table too so I want to find something.

  19. I just discovered you and will get a cup of tea and snoop around. First, I gotta ask, please, what color is that on your new walls? I've been looking for just the right white, not too white, not too yellow or gray or blue-ish. Your choice is perfect.
    And I love your house......

    1. Hi Susie,

      I looked and looked for the right paint. I did not want pure white but a little cream in it but not too much yellow and I found this color called toasted almond by Behr. Another color I found that I have in my master bedroom is called cotton whisper and it is a little lighter and more of a pale ivory that is pretty too and from Behr. Snoop all you like thanks for coming by.

    2. Hi Kris, Thank you soooo very much. You sharing your color choices will keep me from going even more batty....I've been painting swatches on the walls for over 2 years. We have the original woodwork in a 1900 house and the white has to match, ya know? Your colors are just right....Whew, now I can get started painting AND
      I'll be a regular here from now on!

  27. Your shutters are perfect! I love the whole wall vignette.

    Thermostats, smoke detectors, wall outlets...all of them are so "not pretty". I have been able to hide a few but mostly not.

    Now following your beautiful blog.

    Blessings, Amy
