Good morning Friends ~ It is Saturday, I hope you all have a great weekend.
I had a light bulb moment yesterday. Cut a hole in the living room’s west wall, where the painting is below. (I am tired of the painting for now.) I wanted to open this tiny space a bit more and cutting the hole in the wall would allow me to look out the bedroom window on the west wall in there. Well, in theory anyway, when you are standing or walking by this wall in the living room.
View out into part of the main garden.
Then, I thought of this old stained glass window that needs some work, re-glazing, out in the workshop. It would work. I think I would leave the two center spaces open with no glass, just the center piece of wood being there, so that there would be more air-flow between the liv. room and bedroom.
Then I did a double check and the electric wire for the outlet runs right down that space. Dang. I’ll have to run this by my B-I-L the next time he comes here.
Yesterday I was given two huge 12’long by about 6’ wide fully lined curtains made of this material. My plan is curtains for the bedroom, for the summer months, and a bed skirt as our antique bed, (curbside shopped in Spain). is high and this will be just great as I can cut it the right length I need. I may make pillow shams too and maybe a spread. I’ve certainly enough of this lovely material to work with.
My B-I-L will be coming down in a month or so and we’ll put up sheets of the ‘cheaper’ beadboard paneling on the west wall of the bedroom. I am so looking forward to that.
This is the paneling on the east wall, backside of bathroom wall. It’s around $19 a sheet. I can’t afford the real beadboard paneling, but this will work for FlowerLady. I love the look.
I’ve got to move a dresser, my storage units on wheels, and a big metal shelf unit (shown below), away from the wall so that we can work there.
Well, that’s it from Plum Cottage. I’ve got work to do inside moving these things in the next few weeks.
Outside the weather is much nicer and I was able to work in and around main garden for an hour before I left for work yesterday. Really NICE.
Be well and enjoy each day.
Time to close this ~ FlowerLady
