Paint a Rug Party Act I Scene II




I have been a hot mess over the pressure to do the rug. Been having several Lindsay Lohan episodes. I actually turned into the Piggly Wiggly to buy some Camel non filters..... luckily while on the aisle looking for the Boone's' Farm (which apparently they don't make anymore) I came to my senses. I did grab a Yoohoo & a Little Debbie Devil Square on the way out. It was a real blast from the past coping with pressure moment. Have even questioned if I am stable enough to get behind the wheel of a car..... seriously.



But I am making progress. Threw Lovie  (my precious 83 year old Mama) in the car & flew down to Smithfield to the Carolina Pottery & got me a doable size faux sisal. As I worked on what room to do it in & played with the ideas for the custom border.... I know, right. Probably where the pressure came from as I did decide to go that route. Found a laminator so I can seal up the fabric to keep it clean.

If the rug were to go in my kitchen this border with the fabric below from my banquette is fab but then my stencil would clash.....





P Kaufman Paisley Fabric from my porch I think it will work OK but may have to consider another stencil.....




Also from the porch below is this lime indoor/outdoor Sunbrella, sorta' boring but won't have to laminate & the stencil is the star.





This yummy Lilly Pulitzer fabric goes with the fabrics for the guest room.



If you remember or not here they are below sorta' again.... The tray shown below is from Dana Gibson & she did the fabric for me in these colors; it is in the mail so I will show soon.... The taffeta is for bed pillows. More Dana Gibson news coming soon!




Playing around with the paint colors. Also have more stencil choices but truth??? didn't order the stencils until Sunday & they aren't here yet.....See why I feel like Lindsay?

Sidebar ~ while @ the Carolina Pottery saw great Halloween decor!





& bought some wine....

  13. Well girl I am so glad I was not asked to do a rug...it would have thrown me a lot farther than Lindsay's troubles. I would have had to search the black market for someone do it for me and not tell. I will sit back and drink wine and watch the paint fly...get it girl!
