"Decorating with Diane"

I brought in a REAL decorator!

"Penny from The Comforts of Home and Lavender Hill Studio"

Diane and Penny in the RED kitchen!

She shopped with me and then walked around my new condo
giving me ideas and decorating tips!
What a fun day!

I bought these items at the thrift stores we went to
but I will probably move everything around a few more times before I am happy.


Most of you saw the birdcage and I am really excited about that!
For now it is on top of a big cupboard...waiting!


My hubby is really a good decorator, too but likes to have a little fun along the way!
He told me to stay away for a few minutes while he 'decorated' this bathroom! lol



The walls in this bathroom are Sherwin Williams 'Tan Bark'.

The painting is finished and I'll have more photos later!
We are SO pleased! Our painter, Nikki is the BEST!!!

Happy Decorating!

Hi,

Stopping by from Penny's blog to see what you did with your new birdcage.It looks darling where you have. Love the colors of your bathroom and kitchen - by the way - your husband is a pretty darn good decorator himself.

How fun that you and Penny live in the same town.
Have a lovely week.
Blessings,
Erin

What fun! A blogging friend to help you decorate! I just need to wind up several projects (sewing and watercolor) so that I can even clean here...much less redecorate!
Your condo looks warm and welcoming!

Hi Diane!
I am far from a real decorator! But I did have alot of fun with you visiting the stores and your condo. Your husband is a wonderful, talented guy! See you soon, I hope!

A new place to decorate - how fun! Your husband sounds like fun. I love the color you put in the bathroom and the kitchen. Keep us posted on your progress.
