Daughter's House Updates


I hope you are all having a good Tuesday.
Just wanted to update you, on what I have been doing at my daughter's new house.
So far I have done a Venetian plaster treatment, on the fireplace. As you can see, it was a bright white before. I put a tanish green plaster, on top of the white. It warmed it right up.

I also finished painting a guest bath. It is kind of an olive color. I did the woodwork, and cabinets in Swiss Coffee. It looks so much better than it did. I have been planting flowers, and did a stain on her front porch.
I will try to get more pictures soon.

Have a great day/evening!

It looks great! Much improved. When I visit my D in TN I sometimes paint & redecorate, I can't help myself!

That's what Mother's do!
