All about the yellow

Even with the snow a coming down I have sunny yellow on my mind. If you were to tell me a few years ago that I was going to be so drawn to yellow when decorating my own little home I wouldn't have believed it, but then aren't we all glad that we don't have to live in the world that an 18 year old version of ourselves dreamed up. The first coat of Sherwin-Williams Midday yellow paint went on in my bedroom last night and I am now dreaming of lazy mornings with the sun coming in and shinning off the yellow walls.

I also have winding my way a few yards of this fabric to make kitchen curtains. I am planning on painting my kitchen white with just a hint of yellow here and there. I first saw the fabric many months before I had ever seen my little house and while I loved it I had no reason to buy it, and then as they so often do things came together and and it is to find a home in a slightly revamped 1940's kitchen!

Edited to add this fabric is Summer Soiree by Paula Prass in Yellow Houndstooth

Proof that something is happening

Things have been getting done over at the house, and crunch time is really upon us. I need to be moved by March 7th. Okay I am the one who came up with that date, my landlords would keep me forever.

But you see, I'm looking forward to this room being painted yellow with my yet to be used by me brass bed and the sun streaming through. And just think someone had those wood floors covered all these years.
Remember the horrid bathroom, came out okay hu?
Look the kitchen even has a new counter top. Progress is good.
