Last week was my first “The Monday Blues” post, and from here on out, every Monday I will be sharing some of my fave blue projects in my home, and yours. Your pic can be something you made, refreshed, or purchased. I just love blue and want to share your “Blues”, too.
Come along and join me as I feature YOUR “Monday Blues“!!
First off, Meg from Nutmeg Place emailed me right off the bat. She is sharing her Wythe Blue Kitchen.
Can you say LOVE? Meg is quite talented and creative. I have a feeling I am going to receiving lots of “Monday Blues” pics from my friend Meg!! Thanks Meg! You are awesome!!!
My next “Blue” pic is from my cute friend Gracie from Kitchen Table Art.
Gracie found this cart in her parent’s barn all filled with dust and spider webs, but being a “blue” lover like me, she fixed her up and made her look SO much better!! Cute, cute, cute Gracie!!
Thanks to both Meg and Gracie for being the FIRST features on “The Monday Blues”!!!
Be sure to email me YOUR “Blue” so I can feature you next week!!
Now for MY fave blue this week:
When we moved into our 2 bedroom condo, we wanted more “living space”. So we chose to make the second bedroom a TV room. It has worked out perfectly. We have our living room as pictured here, and an extra room to entertain. When the grand kids come over, this is the room they like best. The toys, crafts, games, movies are all in the closet. They can watch TV, and/or play games while the adults visit.
One problem with making this a TV room was this wall:
I could not for the life of me figure out what to do with this space. I actually even considered hanging my husband’s REAL LONGHORNS up above the closet. He REALLY liked that idea!
I have been thrifting and purchasing empty frames. And while we were de-junking our storage unit, we found quite a few frames that I could paint up and use SOMEWHERE.
I also had enough colors of paint to use. I kept thinking I wanted to add sea glass colors to this room. I started painting. Mixing and matching colors. Paining and sanding my frames till they were just right. I then strung a 28 gauge galvanized wire across each frame. (If you look closely you can see the wire)
So far, so good!! Yay!! I liked it!!
With my mixed and matched colors I painted some clothes pins to hold my pictures.
