Times flies.....

Things have been a little hectic here the past week what with tech weekend. tech and dress rehearsal all week and then the performance this weekend. Things went very well but I am glad it is all over until the Fall.

I had hardly any time to work on the new project except for removing all the old foliage and aging the outside. I used a Minwax Golden Oak stain and just dabbed and wiped until I got the degree of "antiquity" I wanted. I was, at first, a little leary of doing that...the creamy paint was sooo pretty. But too pretty for the new purpose.

There was small problem with the existing electical wiring so while I was into the repair, I decided to redo the ceilngs in both rooms. When I can get a decent picture, I will show you the detailing (which no one will probably ever notice unless they stand on their head) in the smaller room.

In the meantime...here is a small hint regrading the nature of this project. And do not dispare...soon all will be revealed!


BTW....had my very first etsy sale this morning! Really exciting for me.

I was hoping, that, instead of asking me to stand on my head to admire the detail, you would rather turn your camera upside down for a good shot.

Good luck with the performance. And congratulations on your first sale.

Hmmm, flamingos? The mind id baffled...

lol, Lize! Silly girl...actually, I have turned the roombox upside down to get the photograph :-) But,alas, anyone viewing in person will most likely miss the ceilings unless they are very short or make a point of looking under and up.
