A few more changes!

Finally a  make-over that I love!! While I was painting those stubborn candle sticks I gave this frame a quick coat too. I had this frame in the basement and knew I had saved it for some reason. I glued some paper, the keys and the little glitz and the whole thing only cost $3.99. Now that is more like it.
 It is spring and I was feeling a change coming on so after lunch I cracked open a can of paint and painted my red accent wall a color called white clay...I was ready for the red to go.
Sorry that it is a Christmas picture but that is the only one I could find of the red wall...and now..
This is the new color...on the right where you can see the red shelf..that is where the keys are hanging now.
I am removing all the red and primitive decorations and starting over....It only took about 3 hours to paint and trim this wall. I know you can't see much of it but I will share more as I decorate.
 Spring just seems like the right time to do some painting...so for today I have closed up the paint can and put away the crocks...took down the curtains and I am enjoying the new color....more later. Be blessed.

Hi Dianntha...you have been busy. I really like all the changes you've made. That is the neatest frame and what a great way to display all your keys. I'm going to be doing some painting soon too....it's amazing how just a bit of paint can change things up.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day...hugs, Linda

I love the key display! I think the light wall makes your woodwork stand out so much. It's gorgeous wood! I like the new look.
