This is what I have been doing

I have a gimp left arm, so the painting has been triple time!  Something that would take me two days has turned into three weeks!  I still need to repaint the pocket doors and the middle of fireplace.  We finally broke down and bought a NEW sofa and recliner (that was for the dawling, the chair thing).  It is all recycled leather, with all material "green" as to limit our carbon footprint...yes we are that family!  It cost more, but all of it has been made in the U. S. of A. !  As you will see I have not finished the library table...putting my lemon oil on it.  I think everything goes with the antiques too.  I have also included a picture of the coffee table I am getting made...we won't get for another 6 to 8 weeks.  You will see the rugs I hooked. The blankets on the table.... that table is being put in the foyer.  I am going to paint that area next....starting next month...maybe???....All the paint, is of course Benjamin Moore.  I did change the living room to a slightly darker color of yellow.  All still "hysterical" paint colors. Now ta da..........

Lindy, everything looks beautiful. The hard work is paying off. Love the hooked rug beauty in front of the couch. The wood floors are a great backdrop for our work.
