Today I will show the fireplace half of our great room,
We painted the walls in the paint color Classy from Allen and Roth from Lowes. The sconces also came from Lowes. I found the antique mirror and boxwood urns at The White Rabbit in St. Louis. I love that store, and will be sharing more about it in the future. After everything was painted, I realized our dark red brick stuck out like a sore thumb! I whitewashed the brick, which was a surprisingly easy and free project to do!I painted my fireboard with Annie Sloan chalk paint in Paris Gray, and then stenciled in ASCP Old White. The basket was free from One Kings Lane. The chairs are from Overstock.com, how I love overstock.com! These chairs were almost identical to a pair I wanted at Restoration Hardware, but for much less.
Here are my helpers,Luke and our special house guest, Miss Annabelle. Her family is away at the beach this week, I don't want to give her back when they come home, she and Luke get along well. :)
This is where my pie safe use to be. I kept my old dry sink and painted it ASCP Old White, it use to be a dark red. The upper cabinet was one of my first purchases starting my makeover. I walked into The Painted Horse, a store here in town, and it was the first thing I saw. I knew right away that I had to have it. It had been painted white, but it was dingy and dirty. I decided to give it a fresh coat of ASCP Old White.
The letter J came from Ballard Designs, the old books and candleabra from The White Rabbit, and the old chippy frames were a pleasant discovery in the back carriage house of The Painted Horse.
I found the embroidered hydrangea pillows at Pottery Barn. How I love the texture and details on these!
Thank you so much for stopping by my new blog to take a look at my makeover. I look forward to sharing more with you. I will return soon with the rest of the room,and I am so close to finishing the dining room. So there is a lot more to come!
