I Missed You

by Rhondi Mullins on August 19, 2015

Good morning sweet blogging friends

I have missed you!  I miss hearing from you.  I miss visiting you in your homes/blogs.  I miss sharing with you when I have done something new.  So I am posting something today.  Don’t know if I will be posting a lot or not, just have to wait and see!

You remember my blue and white living room?

It’s a little different now.

coffee table

A coffee table found on craigslist painted with white chalk paint.  Don’t you love Chalk paint?  Haven’t tried it yet?  You are missing out on some fun and easy painting!

New slipcovers on our 46 year old chairs.  Oops, just noticed I took the pictures before I hemmed the skirt on the chairs!

red quilt

Add a quilt I made a few yeas ago.  I named it Wow in Red.

Steal another lamp from the TV room. ( more shopping the house)

living room church mirror

Take a mirror and antique washstand from another room, more shopping the house.  What is so fun about shopping the house is the price!

And we have a new living room!  I spent less than $200.

Still have a bit more to do, but I was excited to show it to you now.

Awhile back I said that I wanted to have my home be more calm.  That’s when I painted the living room walls white.  Then awhile ago I started thinking about a red check fabric that I’d seen on Tina’s blog, Cherry Hill Cottage , ( oh my goodness, that was in 2011!) and I decided just to go for it.

I’m working on the dining room next.  It used to have red walls, but when we decided to sell our house a few years ago, I painted it in the pale yellow so it was more neutral color.  So glad we decided not to move after all.

Imagine how great it is going to look at Christmas!

Hope you are having a very good day and the sun is shining on you.  Rhondi xo

I’ve missed you too, but I have been getting my Rhondi fix on IG 😉 Love the touches of red! But then you knew I would right? Your quilts never cease to make my heart just flutter. Your work is amazing and beautiful and they certainly deserve to be hung like the art they are! I recognized that red check fabric immediately, I looked it up from Tina’s blog too! Gorgeous, and yes, it is going to look fabulous at Christmas time!

Oh my gosh, you added in red!! I’m a happy girl because red is my favorite. It looks fabulous with your blue and white. Those chairs are to die for! Be sure and share the info on that fabric. :)

Hi Rhondi! Oh, I was so happy to see you had posted. I miss seeing what you’re up to. I love the addition of red to your pretty living room. The slip covers are beautiful and you made them? I have some fabric like you red chick but only bought six yards about a year or ago and still haven’t used it. Nice to see you in blogland again.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia 😉

It’s beautiful Rhondi!!!! The quilt is exquisite and how I wish I had your slip cover making skills. You’ve given me some great ideas for our downstairs rec room. I have my mother-in-laws coffee table and end table that is very similar to yours and have been wanting to try that chalk paint on something – thanks for the inspiration!

I’m glad I saw this on fb as I thought you had stopped blogging and don’t look for yours anymore. I do like the changes! The red is beautiful. Now I’ll be interested in seeing what you do in the DR. See you next week at bc!
