It’s been a beautiful and sunshiny week here.
And you know what that means…
(You’ll have to take my word for it because my linens are now in the basket.)
(The basket that I found at Goodwill for $3.99.)
My favorite smell ever in the history of ever is the scent of
freshly washed, crisp, line dried cotton.
It smells like a newborn baby around here.
Am I the only one who LOVES to hang laundry on the line?
I always feel so farm girl domestic with a basket on my hip
and a few clothespins in my mouth. ;)
I don’t care if clotheslines went out with ironing.
In my little acre of the world,
the perfect Spring day includes linens dancing in the breeze.
My oldest boy is on Spring Break this week and other than washing all of my whites,
I haven’t accomplished much inside.
The dusky teal color is a mixture of four colors from one of my favorite furniture paint lines,
General Finishes Milk Paint. I order it from Rockler.
I’m so sorry that is isn’t as simple as color X from company X.
I really love the GF Milk Paint on cabinets (my cabinet uppers are “Snow White”) and General Finishes doesn’t have a teal, so I had to mix it.
Whatever your favorite paint is, just get a dark blue, a green, white, and black,
and mix a little bit until you get your lovely teal.
The label pull hardware is vintage and I purchased it from RetroCollecto on Etsy.
There aren’t any more label pulls among her lovely collection of vintage hardware,
but a search for “vintage label pulls” or “label pulls” might find you some.
As for how I stripped the cabinets, I used a product called Soy-Gel.
It’s pretty awesome stuff, made from soy beans.
I’m sharing more info. over at The DIY Club today.
Speaking of The DIY Club, the monthly project party has resumed.
You can link up ANY DIY projects & tutorials until April 25 for a chance to win the prize package, so be sure to look for the party while you’re there!
For those of you curious about my maple plywood planked floor process, I have a tutorial scheduled to go up Tuesday morning.
I appreciate all of the sweet notes you left about my floors & wall color.
(Thank you so much for waiting a bit between posts in March.)
Have a lovely week,
