I decided it was time to do a much needed project in the cool of the air conditioning
So here I am midway to making the kitchen fresh and new and exciting to be in ...I was tired of the decoration of 16 years ..it was tired, old and dated ...as seen above it was very country and my painstakingly hand painted grape vines were to be no more
If you are a regular visitor to my blog you will, needless to say, know that I just love French Country ..but to refresh our kitchen I have decided to enter in to the unknown realms of FRENCH INDUSTRIAL
So I will keep my French but I am going to Shabby Chic it in an Industrial way ...that is the plan anyway ..I hope I don't sway too much back to the French Shabby Country again
I started it with the new light fixture ...no longer the big chandelier that was so impossible to clean properly without committing to a huge effort and at least a half an hour of my precious time mainly up a step ladder
The majority of all of my fussy Country wall hangings are going to be gone to make way for an Industrial wall hanging that I am working on at the moment involving old, very rusty tin roof tiles ...watch this space !!!
Yes I am excited about it and it's going to be the only one in the World a Maisonvogue invention
Yes I am a tease ...ha! ha!
A lovely feast for the eyes to wake up to on a continuously , almost promised, yet again super sunny Alabama morning
They love to be cut and come inside in the cool of the house to say 'good morning' to me each day
The Humming Birds and Bees love them
I LOVE the grey but I also really loved the old yellow so we have decided to keep some of the wall area the old yellow ...it's in perfect condition and as you can see in the photo below marries wonderfully with the new bold grey
Lots of hard work ahead but slowly and surely the new gently French Industrial will emerge
Thanks for popping in and checking on what is going on with Maisonvogue
I will keep you informed as to what is happening with our kitchen transformation
It's going to be a slow process as I can't work for long periods using my arms and shoulders any longer but we will get there
Do you have a special project that you are either doing or going to do ??
Happy Days to you all
