Ok who is ready for Mr. Bates to break bad? I am so ready for him to swing his cane around! Oof! Did you see the look in his eye at the table!? The audacity of that little snob (whatever his name is) to talk to Mrs. Hughes the way he did! Ooooh I am mad. I have been mad for the last few weeks about it all, it made me sick for days. I know, I know it’s just a show, but many of the servants are so endearing especially Anna; I hate seeing her sad. Ok enough about that! I went to Anthropologie this weekend (10 minutes before they closed) and found a couple of things I just love!
Love those? I adore them!
I finally broke down and have almost finished the office; I have a very hard time finding things to hang on the wall!!! I have a fancy bulletin board which I need, but it just isn’t quite big enough. I am in a mostly anti shopping mode…I have a new pile for donating started already, so for the most part I am not buying a lot of tchotchkes, not a lot. So I started shopping around the house. I found a fairly large canvas in the bathroom…yes a canvas in the bathroom. I knew it need to move out of the bathroom and quite frankly I didn’t really like the picture so I decided I would turn it into a bulletin board.
So out came the Annie Sloan and I gave the frame and canvas a brush down.
Since there was already a support frame that fit inside the frame I decided to keep it and give some support to the back of it with additional furring strips. Once it was all painted up and waxed down I took the canvas out and wrapped this tonal chevron fabric around it to give it a nice finish,
I just hot glued the fabric in key places. I used Annie Sloan’s Old White and used clear wax and a little dark wax.
Now for the rest of the room I just need one more thing to hang on the wall and get my Ikea pot rail hung. Oh and paint the last pot!
