A day off

Well hello my dears,

I took a day off of work today to just have a day to myself. Ever feel like doing that, you just need a day of quiet, no phone calls, just to yourself. Watch TV, do some cleaning, laundry that has been piling up, or maybe even get some of those projects done that have been on my craft table for the past week.

I haven't kept you updated on my stairs because I lost momentum in doing them last weekend when apparently I got a paint that was too creamy. I was going for a white, light and creamy, but not too bright. This is the color of linen. Which wouldn't be bad and no one else can tell the difference in the color but I can. If I go with this color I would have to redo the trim around the stairs. I also think it dulls the rich red mahogany stain that is on the stairs. They just look BLAH. So back to the drawing board on those.

I did add a bit of color to my Living Room and Entryway.
Don't look at the TV area! work in progress.
Sorry about the dark pictures... I can never remember to take pictures during the day time. 
The Color is Tobacco Road by Sherwin Williams. 
I first saw the color while looking at houses and fell in love!
Yellow brown gold colors. Just gorgeous!

I am thinking of doing the living room entirely in this color above some board and batten. The contrast in color is great.

Let me know what you think. Does anyone else go from one project to another? get bored with a project?
I am suppose to be making a quilt and baby booties for 2 baby showers in one week and this is what I am doing.

well until next time,


  1. I love that paint color! (I think The Nester is partial to that one too.)

  2. Yes, I guess I am not the only one to jump around on projects. Too funny. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! By the way, I love the paint color too!


Would love to hear from you! Comments are always welcomed!
