I love white. Bet you guessed that from the name of my blog. I do love pastels also and lately I think I probably should have named my blog "For the Love of Paint" --because in all reality I just love paint. I love the look of a painted surface. It makes me happy.
Janae has been telling me I should do it for years and I finally did it---
I painted my window seat in the living room white.
The wood color was nothing I liked--and the finish was wearing off and it needed to be oiled or something and so I decided just to paint it--like I have thought about for so long.
The cats had to be locked in my bedroom because this is their window and there was no way they were going to stay off it while I was painting.
It took a lot of paint--the first coat of primer and it was still bleeding through so I did a second coat of primer. This bunny (put out for Easter) looks like she in inspecting my work.
Then I put on 2 coats of cotton white paint and I am so pleased how it looks. I washed and ironed the curtains and when I got up this morning the sun was shining brightly. Even though this house is never really dark--the white on the window seat made it so much brighter!
This window has always been one of my favorite things about this house and now I love it even more!
So glad I let there be white! I want to make a cushion for this window and some pillows and make it look more comfy. Buying the foam to make a cushion is like $100. I can't believe how much foam costs. I was thinking maybe I could use a camping foam to make something. Any ideas on making a cushion spending little money?
We are getting a lot of rain lately but there has been sun breaks where I have got out and been "removing winter" from the gardens. It is so much work! I need to repaint some of the outside furniture and clean up the decks besides working on the gardens. Oregon winters are hard on all that is outside.
When it is nice the kids bring their guinea pigs out for outside play time.
They are so cute and so funny. I never knew Guinea pigs have so much personality! The babies are almost full grown already.
Thanks for visiting!
