From Rustic to Swedish french... more photos cont..

Hello everyone!
I have been playing around
with my newly painted
island
and just thought
I would show some
more photos...
Here she is all rustic...now
i hear this is in
the unfinished look.
Isn't that the way?
You change something
and the before
is
now in!
Well I don't
care I was
tired of
it looking unfinished!

It feels calmer
and cleaner
to me now...
Paint colour
is not white
but
Grey Cement
by Benjamin Moore.
Ignore the ugly coral orange walls
I did not paint the dining room this
colour.
It has to be changed sometime.




The iron handles really stand out now...





I am joining my first linking party!!

I am going over now to party
with
Kim
at
SAVVY SOUTHERN STYLE!!
So
come on over
and join the fun!!

  4. Pamela, your link is not correct. When I click on your pic it brings you to blogger and not your post. Click on it and you will see. Try to link again and I will delete this one. I commented on your blog from my blog roll.
