As an expert procrastinator, I am participating in Kristi’s Make It Happen! Monday, at Addicted2Decorating to finish one of those ‘hanging-around-never-done’ projects each week by committing to it here.
Last week, I had two projects on the list: a simple one to finish — printing photos for the living room valance:
I chose mostly blue pictures to fill the empty spots — [from left to right] Van Gogh’s Irises, my grandson, my grand-daughter with middle son, & one of Monet’s Waterlilies. The light for the hydro garden was lowered for a better view of the valance photos.
The main task was a big start to beautifying the porch — cleaning out the junk:
Now that I have quite a few windows in place, I’m getting excited to paint the porch this summer — ivory for the framing & a white-washed turquoise for the floor. In the meantime we’ll be working on ‘skinny’ seating & storage.
I’d like to do some smaller abstract panels in an assortment of colours — maybe to suit the seasons of the year.
For sure, one of them will be in blues with a tad of yellow like my first commission, Blue Menagerie [right]. I love the various hidden animals — whether they were intentional or not.
So, I’m looking at having most of the first one–probably reds, orange, & yellow glass–cut, leaded, soldered, & puttied by next week.
Check back next Monday [July 9th] to see how I do at Making It Happen.
