Yesterday morning I blogged about how the weather was dreary. Well, it cleared up midday, but I was busy filling out an application for a scholarship (that required a medical – sheesh). By the time I was ready to take some pictures it was becoming overcast again but I took pictures anyway, thinking it would only get drearier. Then I went back to work on the application and when I took a break for dinner it was brighter, but the sun was heading downwards. The lesson here is that the weather is seriously screwing with me.
But I prevailed. I have some photos to share, although they are a touch gloomier than I prefer.
Remember this blank wall in our kitchen?
Now it looks like this:

Yep, this is the painting I started days and days ago. When it comes to non-essential projects I operate on “Tanya Time,” which runs a bit delayed due to frequently distractions.
Tomorrow (possibly Wednesday . . . Thursday if we’re talking Tanya Time) I will post about how I DIY’d this painting. Along with blogging about what I did (which is really straightforward) I’ll show you what colours I mixed to produce crisper pastels or vintage-y pastels (there’s a trick). I will also post about the other, newer splashes of colour peppered about the kitchen and what elements of the room served as my inspiration. It has certainly been a while since I posted anything new about the kitchen (other than the post about the fridge). Let’s hope the sunlight cooperates!
