Think of this as a commercial break from my sailing blog. I’ll get back to writing about sailing…real soon!
Here are some of the things we worked on this winter while taking a break from cruising:
I ordered the rug from Ballard Designs. I like that it looks like Italian tiles.
I bought a slip cover for the sofa since the prince spends most of his time on it. This is version #3. The 2 previous purchases didn’t work color-wise. If you look really close in the previous picture you’ll see the protective vinyl I put on the sofa arm to keep it from getting torn up when the mailman drives by.
The main feature is this new console cabinet that Skip built. He used cherry for the top, drawers and shelf and painted the rest. I still need to find some baskets for the bottom and decorative items for the top. I love it!
New cabinet and mosaic mirror that I found in Pier 1.
Shopping online for a picture was a challenge. So many choices and so difficult to visualize. This one is a painting of Portofino. We liked the bright colors. It’s rather big! I recommend that if you buy a print online that you also have them frame it. This one cost a small fortune at Joanns even with a 55% off coupon (what a scam!)
I can guarantee that my next blog post will contain at least one sailboat photo and plenty of beach scenes!
