Closer Still

I found this silver plate flatware set on Craigslist.  Bought it, cleaned the tarnish off; it's good as new and has a new home in the barn.

Stocked the linen cabinet with white towels from Costco - hotel pack. :)

I've been shopping for mirrors for the bathroom, but realized that I had these in storage.

The shower is tiled.  I decided to keep it super simple - 6x8 white ceramic on the walls, pebbles on the floor with brown grout to match the stained concrete.  I put a window film on the window so our guests won't be giving us a peep show.

I finally decided on a color for the peninsula.  I tried pink, but didn't like it.  Then I painted the whole thing orange; liked the color, but it blended in too much with the floor and the butcher block.  OK, so...blue.  That's what I envisioned all along anyway.  I know I've got blue everywhere, but I just couldn't get the blue out of my head and nothing else would do.  Tom cut the legs down and put them on today.  I think I should paint that white toe kick brown to match the floor, but that's a project for a rainy day.  That yellow step stool was a flea market find.  Every time I see one of those I'm reminded of visiting Aunt Imogean when I was a little girl.

I liked the pink much better than the other colors you've painted it. I keep meaning to tell you, but I've forgotten. Not like you listen to my opinions about the apartment anyway.

That blue reminds me of grandma's old house colors. Now, I hope you're plagued with that thought, too, and paint it magenta again.

Yes, I know the blue is like Grandmas old house. But, that's OK because first of all, I liked that house, and secondly, that blue is a good farmhouse cottage blue. Normally, I love pink, but the pink just wasn't right for that room and I didn't have the time or money to keep trying different pinks.
