House stuff

I recently finished this neutral 48 x 60 painting and plopped it on my mantel. My husband has not been liking grayish abstracts on our newly painted SW-Repose Gray wall but he is loving this one.
It is just a few feet from the sconce that was finally put up.

The whopping $50 expenditure seems like it was a good deal. I had my concerns but the 25 watt bulb glows nicely and the shade, now stabilized, does not wobble. We like the light that gently glows from the sides and casts both an up and down light all without being able to see the bulb while descending the staircase.

Bit by bit, we are getting closer to that "For Sale" sign being out front.
I will be tackling that orange wood banister next week.

I really like your work in neutrals. The light is great too.

Looking great -that sconce is a great look for only $50! Why spend more??

That is impressive! That looks like an expensive art piece bought from a gallery. I just started following your blog and I love the content you put out. I recently launched my blog (, and would love to have you drop by. Xo, Yelda

I am wanting to do a large abstract canvas for my dining room and so far my fears and inhibitions are controlling the project. Seeing your abstract gives me courage to at least try. That will be a project for July! The sconce at the foot of the stairs is a great idea.
