It started out as an ordinary day.
In fact, mid-morning, I stopped by a friend’s house to offer
her requested help with her furniture arrangement.
While there, I became obsessed with how pretty her saltillo floors were.
From that point on,
as I often do,
I entered another dimension of
‘I think I’ll do this,’
Laura’s Runaway Train.
Due to my friend’s encouragement and my
‘Sure, I think I’ll do that,’
I am removing every accessory,
emptying every hutch and buffet,
stripping everything off of every surface (including lamps) and putting it on top of beds,
so all of my furniture that sits on saltillo can be moved out.
So this nice man and his son can then shuffle my
furniture from room to room,
clean the floors,
and finish them with 3 coats of high gloss sealer.
I thought I better paint the study before the floors get done,
as I have parallel universe projects happening
all at once.
The nice man from the upholstery shop picked up the couch that is in the study
On a side note, I am changing the colors in the study because I am hot.
I want cool colors.
I want nap colors.
The walls will be Reflection by Sherwin Williams which is a pale soft white/gray.
(paler than this)
The couch will be a gray velvety fabric, which will be darker than the walls
to anchor the room,
and I am going to paint a giant mirror I bought in Cuero high gloss white.
I now have on Pinterest- a new obsession…)
I also bought two chairs in Goliad that I will use in the study that I am painting high gloss white
and covering the chairs in a funky gray and white
This issue of Veranda was my inspiration.
As I have been removing everything from each room,
and I hope to cool things off with soft white,
and to really
funk things up in that room,
I may paint a red buffet I have soft turquoise.

my husband of
‘Shut it down’ fame
is out of town on business.
if I hurry,
maybe he won’t notice when he gets home…
I am now hyperventilating…
