The yellow House (part 2)

Here we are in the yellow house. I know I left you on the edge of your seats saying “what did she do to the walls?”

Well, wait no more. To remind you of the color scheme….. two kelly green director chairs to go with the black vinyl sofa, two white parson tables as coffee table and black and white checked bedspreads on each side of the window.

The walls were going to bring it all together…… I didn’t have the funds to paint or wallpaper the walls. The walls were white, which would now be called “builder’s white.’’  Not too exciting for a black, white, and kelly green decor.

I don’t know where I got the idea…it wasn’t a popular fad..and again no pinterest, no internet… but here I was with the girls looking on…..a feather duster in my hand……dare I do this?

The girls, who had been taught not to color on the walls, watched as mommy colored the walls with red paint.


And I let them have a turn at it.

I got a few more feather dusters and painted one bedroom cotton candy pink.

I also painted the bathrooms at the church we went to. The lady’s bathroom got lavendered and the men’s….blue of course.

Everyone thought I was so talented.

Me…I thought I was chic.

Next week will be the beginning of the move.  I will be shopping for paint….but no feather dusters….my chic days are over.

Loud walls…..not for me these days.
