Deck The Halls?

While you all are decking the halls....I am painting the walls.  Today I painted the walls in the hall between the kitchen and dining room.  I have a big piece of furniture that has to be moved there, so that is where I started the painting.  Tomorrow I am painting the dining room. 

Here is a sneak peak of the "lounge" area of our kitchen.  Our mover bought me the poinsettia.  Wasn't that sweet of him?

The settee in the background is new.  Of course, the walls have not been painted in the kitchen.  And I will be hanging curtains etc down the road.  Once that area has been painted, I will reveal the whole lounge area.

Penny, I can't wait to see your finished room. The settee is perfect. I can just imagine sitting there with a cup of tea and a book. Have a great week. Bonnie

Looking forward to seeing more! I will actually be painting a little this week. After I had my floor grout cleaned, I noticed how badly my baseboards needed to be painted! Always something!

Love that little sneak peek! So glad that you're getting your lounge area that you wanted so much. I can tell it is going to look gorgeous! I know it's exciting sprucing up your new home for the holidays.

Painting- I should be doing the same thing but it's not happening here this season! 2 parties this next weekend so just trying to make things look presentable even though the diningroom and hall still needs painted!

All I can say is that if your mover brought you a poinsettia you must be a STELLAR customer. Your lounge area is beautiful.

I just know it's going to be gorgeous - looking forward to the big picture!

Hi Penny! What a pretty spot and how nice of your mover to bring you the poinsettia! This is a busy time of year to move, I know. In my married life, we've moved a couple of times a couple of weeks before Christmas and I had two kids! Can't wait to see your decorating!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I know how busy you must be, Penny. This is a lovely picture and it was very sweet of the mover to give you the poinsettia. Can't wait to see some of what you've done!

Penny said...

I envy your beautiful light filled rooms. Good luck with all of the painting. Your settee is perfect.
Hugs, Penny

I know you are performing "Penny" magic. And, I know it will be lovely.

Hi Penny, Busy is an understatement. I do all the painting in our homes. The lounge is looking wonderful. what a nice mover. A bit of Christmas to cheer you is a good thing.
Happy decorating.

I love the idea of a lounge area in the kitchen. Can't wait to see it, Penny!

see you there! said...

I am imagining you painting while Christmas music plays in the background :-)

What a thoughtful gift from your mover.

How exciting! I can't wait to see your house decor unfold. Good luck with the painting ~ I've done plenty of that myself this year. I went through 18 gallons of paint redoing my house ~ shudder. :)

Mary said...

Can't wait to see more Penny! Settee is delightful for that space. Be careful on the ladders!

Do you still have your booth?

Hugs - Mary X

Isn't this month all about anticipation? I can't wait to see your new place. Take some time to rest (and photo and blog)!

Sarah said...

Stopping by to say Hi. I know you are busy, busy. Have fun fluffing your new abode.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

That was a sweet thing for your mover to do! I bought a small pointsettia plant recently just to add a little Christmas cheer to my undecorated home. Be careful not to overdo, and hurt your shoulder again Penny!
