Birds Out Livestock In

2.03.2012

I went to a local store a few weeks ago that had a sale going on everything in the store. Here are a few things I found and some other additions to the sun room for the new design.

I bought this bull picture and it is what you see over the window when you enter the sunroom. I moved the clock back where it was since that is the direction I was used to looking at it from my chair. Hard to teach an old dog new tricks. My sister has one like this, but her bull faces the other direction. I need that one, too. Maybe I will sneak it home. Don't tell her. shhhhhhh

The bird pictures flew the coop and went back to the guest room and these sheep moved in. These are from the same store.

I saw these being sold as a set of four at my favorite antique mall for $140. What?! These are just a print stuck in a frame. Talk about mark up! I am sure I could have made these myself, but I only paid $16 for them so I just grabbed them.

I just love the worn chippy frames and the print that looks like it is mounted on burlap.

I added this rooster picture that I have had. It moved out of the powder room during the renovation. The frame was gold and I painted it with a coat of French Linen chalk paint and then brushed Old White chalk paint on the raised places.

Moved three of my vintage roe deer antler mounts in here. I am going to add more of these as I find them.

I placed my stone sheep on a small stack of vintage books to create this vignette on the table.

So the birds are gone and the livestock has moved in for the new look.

There is an exciting project being done this weekend. Our master bath is being painted by a professional painter and not me. Yay. This is the one room that we don't do ourselves. Of course, the mister couldn't now if he wanted to. All I need to do is decide on a color.

Have a super duper weekend!

  13. Love the changes, Kim. Isn't it fun to have fresh scenery every so often? Enjoy your break from painting!

  14. Love the new look! I like the livestock pictures alot. That bull picture is the one that I had in my hand at first, but then traded it for the one that I have now. The frame was a little warped. They may have replaced it before you went there though. I didn't know you were planning on repainting your master bath. That's so nice that you don't have to do it yourself. Looking forward to seeing it when it's done.

  19. Great new additions Kim. So happy you hired a professional. I am waiting on one for our laundry room. I picked a color and now waiting on him.

  20. The sheep are so sweet and as I grew up around cows they are always welcome. You hired a painter? That must be restful for you after all that painting you do.

  30. Omgosh I am so jealous of your sheep...I adore sheep and am still counting down the days until the fencing is in place to bring home a flock of real ones too.

  31. Hi Kim,

    The sheep pics are wonderful...love the way they are mounted and the color of the frames. I always think it cannot get any better and then you do a little more fine tuning and prove me wrong all over again...so fun watching all of your creative energy play out. Have a great weekend a hope your husband is feeling fine again soon.

  33. Thank God you can stop vacuuming up all that invisible bird food. You know it is much easier to sweep up invisible hay. Everything is loooking good, Kim. I like your new prints. I know about moving a clock, too, and then looking at where it USED to be 20 tines a day to see what time it is. lol Some things just aren't that easy to change! xo Diana
