The Color of Change

Hi everyone!

I have been busy the past few weeks making some big time color changes around the Bluebird household.  Last week, I hit up the kitchen and now that it is finished, I have to say I am loving the light, bright new color.  I will have some pictures of the finished room soon - I am waiting on a few things before the "big reveal."

This week, I am starting on our entry hall, foyer and living room. I have been a fan of dark, fall colors for like ALWAYS, but I recently started to feel that I need to lighten up my spaces just a bit.  You can read about my color crisis here.  I am still using the dark colors I love, but am using them with a lightened up background.

So, goodbye drab gold paint.....

Hello, glorious, light reflecting cream (sorry about the wonky pics - I just got a new camera and there has been a big learning curve that I have yet to master, lol)....

I am looking forward to this lighter color so much, but don't worry - there is some color injection for one of the walls that I will show when the room is complete.

In other news, there are a few nifty add-ons in my kitchen.  Today, I am just giving you a little tease.

Rusty, crusty, glorious goodness:

Stained and leaded glass:

And a new piece of furniture that came with a package of mannnnyyyyy fasteners:

It's a busy week for me with all the painting and my daughter's going away party on Saturday. I am also going to be sharing a fun addition to our home that we will be getting in about two weeks that involves a new blog series.  Stay tuned!  What are you up to on these summer days?

Thanks for stopping by,
