Almost There!

I'm nearly done painting the new part.  

How do you like the colors?  We have decided we don't want to live in a dark house this time around.  And I am so thankful to be able to do most of the work before the furniture is  delivered.

The colors are pretty true to life.  At least on my monitor anyway.  The bedroom blue is a different intensity depending on the time of day.

I love the crazy green in the bathroom.  The taped area was helping me decide on an old cabinet I found in an antique store downtown.  (I bought it today.)

This morning the cleaning crew came and the place looks amazing!  I was beginning to wonder if we would ever feel like it was ready to move into.  Now it is shiny and nearly ready for us!

While that was going on I was actually sitting at a potters wheel!  Yup, it's true.  After 2 months I have finally gotten back to it.

By the time I was finished I had 10 small bowls, 2 yarn size bowls and a cookie jar with 2 lids, you know, just in case.

No pictures to prove it yet.

But my back is telling me it's true.

Yay! The house looks fabulous. Can't wait to see it in person--hint, hint!

I love the colors!!! I have lived in dark too long myself and love adding some color in. The luxury of not having anything in the house to pain around is a dream! Beautiful.

Feels good to get back on the wheel doesn't it? I was away for about a year, so nice to go into my studio and see bowls on the shelves!

The big accomplishment next week will be the power company arriving to connect the power to my studio. Then we will be REALLY close.

I'll take that hint Elizabeth!!

Very nice colors, Anna.
I am thinking of doing the same to my house, it hasn't been painted in 19 years, and I also want some color. 'Cept I can't decide what colors to choose for where, so I have done nothing.
I hope you will continue to enjoy all your colorful hard work!

Anna I love how cheerful all the colors are. You've motivated me to repaint some of the rooms in our house. So excited its ready for you to move in.

Kevin, deciding for me is nearly more laborious then the actual painting! Ha! You can do it! And thanks for joining me here. :)
