The first picture is the before. I am the worst possible photographer...which I can somewhat explain. Actually, I can't. It's just one of those things. At least you can see the old carpet. The walls were already painted the day before.
I must tell you that there are markings on the wall reflected from the mirror. Each time a I take a picture...I get orbs or wall markings. I've been told it is from the flash and the mirrors in the room. The orbs...no one seems to be able to explain other than dust on the lens. Enlarge. If it is dust it flies..FAST.
This house has several pocket doors and bi fold doors which I love. At first I couldn't get used to the one on the bathroom I used..but now I love it. So cute and unusual.
Enlarge both of these photo's and look at the markings on the mirrors.
We painted the living room door white on both sides. One side of the front door was a sort of orange paint..burnt orange..and the inside was a dark wood. I removed the door knocker and removed years of tarnish and it turned out a lovely brass finish.
Notice the markings on the mirrors and one is reflected on the wall. Enlarge the photo's and compare the two. Do you have any idea what it is? Or those round white things that I sometimes catch in mid flight? These markings are sometimes on the walls...reflections? Bugs me at times. I think it's just interesting reflections.
I love the change. It's cozy...old fashioned but I love the look of lace and the color of the paint. Haystack by Laura Ashley. The coffee table is going to be painted white. What do you think. I love Shabby chic..but..I love the bright colors too. Thanks for your sweet comments. I am very, very insecure with decorating. Not everyone like as much "stuff" as I do!
Long, long day today. But fun.
Hugs and love,
