White Painted Brick

  H got all the brick on the studio painted white last  week...and that was no small job!  The studio is about a 26' square building.


Here is a before and after picture....what a difference!
H added a faux pink door, black shutters, and some decorative iron above the door.
We also added a faux window with black shutters and hung a leaded glass window in front of it...
 sweet vintage cooking pot bird feeder.
The old bath tub also got a fresh coat of pink paint....

and a pair of ducks to swim around in the tub....



This is a vignette that I did to kind of hide the cooling/heating unit for the studio...  I used my rusty old aqua wheel barrow , some potted plants, and my 'new to me" plant stand that I got for $10 at a yard sale last week end.

These are the chandys that were on the front porch last year....one is now a bird feeder...

and the other one is a plant chandy!

Here is a before and after of the plant holder.



All of these head and foot boards were scattered around the yard....we gathered them up, painted "um white, and made a little fence in front of the studio.      I love, love, love the new look!

Til next time...

  8. Penn,
    I am taking a break doing the trim and Joe is now using the roller. You are amazing, my Friend! What a transformation! Love the pink door and pink window framed with the black shutters!! You know I am a color gal!!
    I am convinced that you have the most amazing collection of the best Junque and stuff that I have ever seen!! It is all so fantastic!!
    If I had more room, I am sure I would have more....

    You mentioned that my neighbors landscape but don't really decorate the outsides. They are all very nice and we have lovely neighbors but all are very refined, so to speak. I am the crazy one, I guess. Lynn and Vic, our new neighbors , have been doing a lot to their home and do more decorating, so to speak. That is why I miss my neighbor, Elly, She used to decorate everything having to do with her home....Sadly, I don't think she would even recognize me now...

    Hugs,
    Deb
