Actually, even a week late as I have recently acquired decor, too ! I have redone my three tiered shelf with mostly pewter ware that I have recently aquired. Before photo is below of the shelf. I will be painting this shelf black in the near future as soon as the weather warms up ?
I have also recently acquired the sieve ?( sifter ) hanging on the wall. There was a framed print there before. And the corn dryer with the wooden bobbins stuck on it. I had a collection of wooden bobbins and thought this was a great idea... saw it on the previous old primitive place blog !
My new curtains and valance. The valance is really a fishtail swag that I have sewn a rod pocket onto... about 170 inches of rod pocket for this window. I cut a swag in the middle and added a big piece of another swag to it. The fishtails swags were half price and I loved this black with the print. Also had enough to make tie backs for the osnaburg tiers I made. Hiding behind the valance are roll up blinds that I need in the afternoon to pull down so that everything doesn't fade out. As much as I love the sun, it does destroy and fade out fabric.
I also want to find a new black lamp to put on the table ( that is an old singer sewing machine ) And a new throw for the back of the chair and a pillow !
Before photos below..
I have a lot of wood items that I want to paint black. I thought I would never get tired of red but have decorated with that color for years and it is wearing out..
