It's going to get better, though- I'm going to get vinyl lettering on the bottom pane that says-
"Better keep yourself clean and bright. You are the window through which you must see the world." -GBS
I'm excited about it. I'm also excited about all the different stuff I could hang from the latch at the top. Dried flowers, an initial like I have on the back door, or a picture frame.
One question: should I do the vinyl letters in dark brown or white? I think black letters would be too... extreme, for lack of a better word. Also, should I distress the frame? I'm thinking so- there's lot of little things still wrong with it that are still visible, despite the fresh coat of paint, so I might as well make them look intentional.
And now-I'm so proud of this- the newly repainted kitchen! True, I did paint just after we moved in, so it hadn't been 2 years since I first painted, but I hated the color. I just wanted a tan, but the tan I chose, as it turns out, had very strong red undertones. It looked pink. I gave it a year to see if it would grow on me, but last fall I decided I would be repainting. So I finally got to it last week.
I've started my first quilt. Pictures to come.
Also- I know the banners are in the same place here, but the card one got moved to the hooks below the mantle after the picture was taken.
