Shades of Grey

I'm in-love with the color grey, once thought to be a cold sterile color now brings life and warmth to  my living room. I love the contrast with the original 1920's windows, doors and moldings. I used Dutch Boy Paint's Cathedral Gray. You can see in the first photo that our living room was originally a pale yellow. That part is almost done and I will post more photos soon. Every color you can imagine goes well with it. Now for the rest of my house!

Afraid of Sewing...

As sweet and cute as this little guy is... IT SCARES ME TO DEATH!!! I just got it. It looks great on my vintage sewing cabinet. I have tons of vintage fabric and ideas of what I want to create... Sewing & crafts are the rage, trend, dedicated blogs, etc. I really want to learn to sew and maybe ( a big maybe) I could actually make a few things for my shop... Vintage  Any words of wisdom on sewing? Oh Martha you make it look so easy! Stay tuned...

Kitchen Redux Continues...










I came across this great "factory" loft... Great ideas for room dividers if you have an open space.































If I had it my way, our kitchen would be 99% industrial. However, we don't live in a factory but this wonderful piece will house our dry goods. I love the patina of this aged zinc cabinet with its simple lines and bounty of storage space. I can't wait to get it home and into our kitchen.
