You know what? Posting about my living room is forcing me to work on it. Thanks for wanting to see it finished. I want to see it finished too. My vision for it is gaining momentum. Here are some of the things that will be incorporated.
I received some interesting emails regarding my last post about "Vintage Minimalism", and getting rid of the clutter. Now, when I say clutter, I don't mean decorative clutter. No, I'm talking about work clutter. My redesigns invade what is suppose to be my sanctuary. I work inside a lot, and if I don't move things like paint, brushes, tools, clay, paper, etc., out as soon as I'm done with it, it ends up in the corner. Then, I'm move on to something else, and that will end up on top of the stuff in the corner. When the corner is full, stuff ends up on the side of the sofa, etc., etc., etc.
When I get rid of the "Work Clutter", I really don't have that much in my living room.
I'll be decorating, mostly, with items I already have. I'm just "redesigning" most of them. I painted this lamp base quite a while ago, and left it outside to weather. I love the details.
It's going to be a candle stand. The ornate plaques, of which I have quite a few, will be organized into one statement piece. I have a vision. I just have to execute it. First, I have to finish painting them all.
I'm using of my "Old World Finish". Alternating layers of white and grey, with a bit of wiping back as I go.
Yes, I've been shopping my own home and garage. Realizing that I already have most of what I need to decorate. It is minimal after all. Plus, I'm the thrifty sort who loves a challenge. Quite often, you just have to re-imagine things.
