I hope y'all had a wonderful weekend. We did and I was on the go, go, go. Are you ready to see the new paint color in the breakfast room? Well, actually the kitchen is the new color, too since it is all one big room, but today we are concentrating on just the breakfast room.
I am loving the fresher brighter color. I used the left over paint from the guest room makeover so this project was free! The paint is French Canvas by Benjamin Moore paints. Actually the guest bath was painted with this paint, too.
I created this comparison so you could see how yellow the old paint color was. The old is Frappe by Benjamin Moore, and I did love it, but once I saw the French Canvas I knew it would brighten up this room.
Do you see how the old hay forks are hung? Let's look closer.
Have I told y'all that Mr. Savvy has some brilliant ideas sometimes. Not always, but sometimes and this is one of those brilliant times. I told him we needed to figure out how to hang these hay forks and I also wanted to use the antlers if I could and he said why not use the antlers as a brace. Brilliant, I tell ya and I love this!
The fork end is hung with a nail and floral wire and the other end is the roe deer antlers holding up the handle.
I better watch out or he will be taking over this blog. :)
While I was taking down the curtain rod in order to paint I dropped one of the end finials and it broke in a million pieces. I went to Lowes to see if I could get a mate, but no such luck so I bought two new ends. Well, they didn't really fit, but that man of mine made them work. He wrapped tape around the screws and forced them in the ends and voila! Yep, he did it again. I'm still loving the shorter curtains.
Instead of hanging the copper molds between the arches going into the great room, I just hung a few over the window.
Fresh Georgia peaches fill and ironstone casserole on the table.
Dried lavender fills an old enamelware pitcher from France.
Definitely more French farm house now.
I sure hope y'all have a wonderful week!
