Bye~Bye Cottage Charm. . .

While the "heat is on" On Crooked Creektt,
"Mr. Ed" and I have been spending quality time 
in our lower level living areas. . .it's much c o o l e r down there!


To keep "Mr. Ed" busy, (out~of~trouble)
I asked him to give my workstation in Studio One a touch~up. 


Since the closing of our Bit's 'n Pieces business in January,
I am thrilled to have more space for creating and designing for our own home.



However,
it was definitely time for a "face~lift" to my workstation hue.

As you can see by my inspiration board,
I've been contemplating some color palette changes for quite some time.


 So~o~o. . .
bye~bye Cottage Charm. . .



h e l l o Trendy Lady!

To make my color selection for the updating of my workstation,
I had a paint "chip" that I thought I'd picked up 
at our local Sherwin~Williams store. Oops!
Instead, it was from our local big box store.




Timidly, with paint chip in hand,
I entered our Sherwin~Williams store and tried to find a match.



Caught in the act of failure, by our loyal paint specialist Brian,
he carefully took the paint chip and gave me a perfect match!


Brian, professionally, named my custom matched paint hue. . .
On Crooked Creektt Studio Gray!








"Mr. Ed" graciously painted the two~tier shelving unit
and my heirloom bookcase all while he was in Studio One!
















As soon as the satin latex paint dried, I began to fill Studio One
with all things vintage and uplifting. 































I filled every corner with floral hues that speak of Summer to my soul.




Within the surroundings of Studio One,
I'll be keeping "cool" regardless of the triple digits that now plaque the Prairie.



On Crooked Creektt,
 the only thing heating up is my creativity!


Until next time. . .

Hi Pat- that work station looks great! Love all your personal accents. It's good to be creative and keep busy inside during the hot summer days. Lol on the official name of the paint!

While I'm sorry to hear good bye and cottage charm in the same sentence, I do like your new look. The gray is lovely and it looks like you have a wonderful peaceful work area that is ready for action!

I like your change! I especially like the egg prints and those birds! It even looks cooler!

It looks so pretty...almost too pretty to make messy with creating. You manage to mix trendy with your vintage gems beautifully. I love it.
