This job of work is keeping me offline for the most part. I've not been able to visit with anyone except for making time when I host The Bird D'Pot on Saturday afternoon and Sunday. Yesterday, at the beginning of my 'work day' I ran into a problem that delayed my finishing the bath. I long ago decided to rid myself of a lot of 'unwanted' clutter. This time around, just a framed work here and there. But, I wanted to 'recycle' a couple of frames that I had in the bedroom...I took them off the bedroom wall, and both literally fell apart!!! I had to stop there and do some repair work on them before I could put in the new art! That took a couple or more hours of my morning...before I could begin with the 2nd coat of paint! Geeze. Lately, as I've posted previously, I've been working off and on in the master bathroom. There are three separate rooms here. The tub room, the lavatory, and then off these rooms, a walk-in closet. Removing the wallpaper from the 'old' decorum and then scrubbing/sanding the walls preparing them for a couple coats of paint took the longest! After that, it was Bud's turn. He built a similar wooden light fixture frame above the marble sink/counter top...like the one in the hall bath seen here. When that was finished, and the woodwork was polished, the walls painted, I started hanging the wall fixtures art work and decided to add part of my china cardinal collection here and there...
[note - the bride and groom in the middle/bottom row of the knick knack shelf was our wedding cake topper!!! It's 47 years old, and the veil on the bride is a bit rotted, but I STILL HAVE it!!]
...the recycled frames with new ink/water-color art:
Now that this section of the 'master' area is done, I move on to the master bedroom. Only a change of color lies in store for this 'redo'. So, once I get to working on sealing nail holes from framed pictures and shelves, I will begin. New color of walls, new bedding ensemble, new lampshades, sheer curtains to match the paint color, and rearranging the art for a 'different look will be worked on, and then once this is done...the entire interior of the house has been changed in colors!!!! Until next time. I'm hoping this will take less time to complete, compared to the bathroom/s. Should be. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Out with the old colors: Wine and Brown to the new colors: Spanish Moss [muted green], turquoise, mossy green and burnt sienna brown. Once I get the bedroom done, I'll share the before and after of that room. For now, I take a few hours off....birding of course!

Once I get this redecorating done, I'll get back to normal blog hopping. For now, forgive me if I don't repay visits.
