A Few Changes

I made a few changes in my studio.  It's been looking extremely dull lately, so I wanted to pretty it up.  I used it a lot over the winter, but  I'm only using it for small projects now.  During the spring and summer, I do most of my work in the garage.  So, I went through my stash of oops paint, and  painted the walls.



After that, I decided to change the top of my "Firescreen Table", and move it into the studio.  Something pretty to look at while I work.  In October, I had it in the living room.  It had a dark top, and more of a dry brush paint treatment.




I gave it a thick coat of creamy paint, and changed the top to a slab of granite.  I like the thicker top, and the rough edge.






As you can see, my roses are blooming.





Now, I need to do some more rearranging, and get a few project done.  See ya soon.

  28. Oh Rosemary,

    This little vignette is adorable, and your roses are beautiful. They look like 'Sterling' roses, a beautiful lavender color with an out of this world rose scent? I, too, love that granite piece!

    Happy Mother's Day to you, as well!

    Blessings,
    Donna
