Danish Modern…

I always tease my sister about being left on the doorstep by gypsies…we are night and day as far as our tastes, especially design…

She’s been in her house about 3 or 4 years and has two very young kids, 2 & 9 months…looking around I’m never sure which toys belong to her kids and which belong to her husband…

I was at her home last week and flat out asked when we were going to do something about her digs…she has some great pieces of original Danish furniture from my parents and her in-laws. All they really need is some new fabric and perhaps a fresh coat of stain…

I’ve been collecting some inspiration photos…

Using “Chip It” I’m trying to see what color scheme she would like…
This picture is framed album covers which they already have…


My sister has her Doctorate in piano performance. I would love to do the entire wall behind her piano in sheet music using some of her favorite pieces …

I think an arc lamp would be perfect in her house…she was quite annoyed with me when I told her I saw one at an estate sale a while ago for $12…oops!


Not quite sure when this process will start but a girl can dream…

Move Over Pinterest…

I finally got around to checking out Sherwin Williams new “Chip It” tool…

I’m in love!!

In case you haven’t heard of it or didn’t take the time to check it out, you add a “Chip It” bookmark to your toolbar, you can click the option on any picture on any website and find a color palette…does it get any better than that?!?

Even better…you can pin your chip after it’s been saved!

I have a feeling I’m going to waste even more hours on this than I do on Pinterest…

Nothing to See Here…

Seriously…nothing!  It’s quite boring around chez lemonDrop.  I haven’t quite decided what project I want to start next so therefore, nothing is happening…

I did however score this little goodie over the weekend…

campaign

I got it on the second day, 1/2 price it was $90 with a mirror (crap on top not included in that price!).  It’s a little more than I want to pay for anything at an estate sale BUT because I never, ever, ever see campaign style furniture for sale around these parts I’d kick myself if I let it go…

So, the question is…

do I leave it original OR paint it something fun…

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Decisions, decisions…plus I could use a lot a little motivation…

Alt Channel…

You’ve heard about Alt right?  The blogger conference in Utah…I personally have never been but that’s ok…online classes are now available…

 

I took one yesterday…it’s a great way to get knowledge from the “experts” for a VERY affordable price…

Check out the other classes they offer, it’s not just about blogging…

Art in the Bathroom…

I would like to hang something over the cammode and am considering this…

 

I think it will add just enough color…I also think the hubby will not like any eyes on him when he’s doing his thing…

I personally like bathrooms that give you something to look at when your taking care of business…
