A couple weeks ago I planted a few containers for some Spring green.
I saw the dented tin cans on Pinterest last year and thought they were so fun. Using paint I had around the house I painted one blue, one yellow, and one Spring green. One of my favorite things to plant is my own Easter grass.
Notice how the Hyacinth in front is in full bloom? The one in the blue can was planted the same day. It is just starting to open. Proof that some of us are just late bloomers. lol!
On Friday my friend and I stopped at a thrift store. I found a few more Spring greens to add to my dish fetish. Only two plates and one bowl. I loved the shape and the green check. $2.75 for the three, how could I pass them up?
Now because I am on the subject of Spring green I thought I’d show you a peek into my basement farmhouse kitchen. They just finished painting on Saturday. The walls are Whetstone Grey and the trim is Cotton Ball white. My favorite thing is the bead board ceiling.
This shot is looking away from the kitchen and towards the children’s play area. Now here’s where I would love your opinion. Usually I pretty much know what I want. Like this vintage green paint. I knew I wanted a touch of it somewhere. At first I was going to paint the top of the pillar. My friend, Diana suggested I paint the bead board. Love it!
Notice the transom window and old door on the pantry? I had told the painters to leave them their original color. I adored the old chippy paint. We thought we matched the pillar color to a tee. As you can see it’s a tad lighter. So question is, should I paint the door to match or leave it the way it is? I might mention that my island is an old seed cabinet that was used as a counter in a business/partnership I once had. It is a darker shade of green and has been glazed. It’s not large, only 62” long. The top will be granite which will break up the green. Too many greens?
Notice my tape asking them to not paint? They’re gonna think this lady is looney if I ask them to paint it now. Oh well, they would be right!
Well, that’s the sneak peek for today. Flooring and cupboards coming this week. I can’t wait! I’d love to hear your opinion.
More peeks to come!
