Of course nothing got finished. A lot was started and even more was continued, but as far as I can tell, not a damn thing was finished, which makes for pretty lame blogging.
I think I set a personal record, though. I bought five quarts of paint this weekend, four of them completely different colors (and one a fix of the another color). I didn’t actually need them all this weekend, but I will need them soon and I figured as long as I was paint shopping I might as well get them all at once.
Speaking of paint, I spied a Maine Cottage store across from our hotel in Annapolis. I love Maine Cottage’s (extremely expensive) furniture so I was eager to pop in and explore the store.
I don’t think I could live in a whole house decorated with this furniture. It’s all just a little too perfect and it’s quite whimsical, so while I think a touch would be great, if you did an entire house in it, it could end up looking like some kind of fantasyland. What I sort of love about Maine Cottage furniture is that it’s a great place to get ideas for DIY projects because basically everything is painted a fun color.
I love the Color Bar with cute little holders for swatches of all their paint colors.
This bed is so charming and such an amazing color.
I don’t know where I’d put a little loveseat like this but I’d sure put it somewhere because it is so comfy looking.
So what do you think? Is this kind of cottage charm up your alley or better used for a bit of DIY inspiration? Or maybe it’s just not your cup of tea at all ….
