A SPECIAL GIFT

A very dear friend visited us this morning.

  Russ came with a very SPECIAL and  PERFECT GIFT!!

Right before Russ came, MC and I were just about ready to start taking the "Reveal Pictures" of the latest......the Guest Bath!

Russ makes beautiful stained glass pieces.   I featured a Post all about his fantastic talent about a year ago.
Check  it out below....
HERE

 He knew us, (or me) well enough,  and my love of black and white decor, so that's what he went with...BLACK AND WHITE.
.  
....... But Russ had no way of knowing how PERFECT his gift was!!!!.....
Wait until you see the pictures !!!!!


Meanwhile.....MC has fallen in love with Annie and her Chalk Paint!  He has never worked with anything so easy, and  fast,  that also has IMMEDIATE REWARDING features!!  

As soon as the kitchen was dry, he couldn't wait to start the Guest Bath.  In a day and a half it  was DONE!

MC painted with Annie's Graphite and I buffed with the Dark Wax.  Compared to the scope of the kitchen,  this was a breeze!

The room is now Bucket List House Quality!!!!





SEE HOW PERFECT THE HAND MIRROR IS!!!
the picture below was taken before Russ came!!!  Note old makeup mirror! I'm adding this picture because it's a good shot of the  large mirror. It has a Story to Tell!!!

My Kenneth Brown Mirror has finally found a place where it fits,  as I imagine Kenneth would approve.   The story of the mirror goes way back..  Long story--- short......years ago, I bought it on One King's Lane when Kenneth's items were featured. When he found out what I had bought, he immediately  wrote and told   me that this mirror came from his previous home's Master Bath!!  Now that mirror has HISTORY!
We hung it over the generic builder mirror that MC made a thin black frame for.  Kenneth's mirror has a wonderful faux animal skin, and chrome frame.  I think it weighs over 40 pounds...reason for chain!

NOW....
We have 3/4th can of French Linen left  (out of 3 cans) and 7/8th can of the Graphic!!!!
MC IS RUNNING AROUND LOOKING FOR THINGS TO PAINT!!!

 MC AND  I WISH TO THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT THROUGHOUT THIS YEAR.
WE WISH YOU THE BEST CHRISTMAS IN YOUR LIVES AND CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT'S UP FOR 2013!!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS
MC AND PATTY
