Look Back At July & What I’m Crushing On

[envira-gallery id=”12758″]

A look back at July…..Hot temps, an injured dog, a graduation ceremony, plenty of painting projects, a slipcover change, and a few printables with a recipe thrown into the mix.   All you need to do is click on any of the photos above to read the entire post. So for July, it’s a WRAP

Here’s what I’ve been crushing on for July…..Dark Walnut Paint! I prefer it over the harshness of black paint, yet it’s a great alternative to black. I never realized how sever black looks next to dark walnut, my favorite is the spray paint version made by Rustoleum

    1. Jane I can’t believe July is over and I think it’s been the hottest on record around here. I’m ready for fall! I love that plugin that makes the clickable images, so easy to do and I use it all over my blog now.

    1. Shirley it’s a plugin and I love it. Makes it so easy to do a collage of prints.

    Dawn, You are one busy women !….I do enjoy your posts and they inspire me to get busy….My daughter and I are going to be painting our cottage/guest house this month.

    1. Cheryl, what an undertaking for you and your daugher, wow a whole guest house. You will both be busy that’s for sure. Are you painting inside, outside or both?

        We are painting the outside only…right now it is a dirty peachy colour and we will be painting it a bright yellow with white trim…hopefully it will look more cottage-ie . My daughter is only 15 so we are giving our selves 3 weeks to scrap and paint.

        1. Cheryl, The new color sounds fantastic and cheery what color will the door be? Bright red maybe?
