(We are all remembering and paying personal respects to the lives lost in the tragedy of 9/11/2001 and their surviving families and friends)
(On every anniversary, in New York City, the names of the victims who died there are read out against a background of somber music. The President of the United States attends a memorial service at the Pentagon, and asks Americans to observe Patriot Day with a moment of silence. Smaller services are held in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, which are usually attended by the President’s spouse.)
After moving, and having decided what furniture we would be bringing with us (decided in the design phase and each piece carefully included in the design so size and space would be exact), some of those pieces need some updating. The dining room has so much “brown” I am going to repaint my dining set. We got it in the 80’s and really liked the quality and style, but now it needs some zing. The top has also become bleached out from direct sun hitting it.
I found a really good article on a blog I subscribe to, “Farm Fresh Vintage Finds”, and she repainted a client’s table and chairs with a really nice HomeRight Finish Max sprayer. Visit her blog and there is a chance to win that sprayer just by commenting on her blog story. Here’s the blog link; check it out.
The color of the paint she used is just what I am looking for,Annie Sloan French Linen, a pretty grey that would go well with our slate tile floors and the other greys going on in the kitchen stone backsplash, living room furniture, and Grey Granbury chopped limestone columns and fireplace wall.
I hope I might win that sprayer, but if not, then buying one is on my “to do” list and painting my dining set will also be added to my list. I would need to do it while it’s warm enough to paint, or else have to wait until Spring, which I really would not want to do. When I have a project in mind like this, I get really anxious to get going.
Have a great Friday!
