* Front of house construction

is Completed!  Painting is left to do.  The new window guards are on.  I designed them, and am very pleased with how they turned out.  The old window guard on the bathroom window, which I had made too big and too heavy looking has been turned into a table.  Originally, it was for outside in the jardin.  For the time being, I will put it in front of the fireplace, with the chairs around it.  Looks great.  Eventually, I would like a piece there with storage under it.

I'm thinking of changing the paint colour of the outside of the house from ocre to a dark tera cotta.  What do you think?

Coffee table I had made out of old window guard.

"A leaf fluttered in through the window this morning, as if supported by the rays of the sun, a bird settled on the fire escape, joy in the task of coffee, joy accompanied me as I walked. "  ~ Anais Nin


  1. Love the coffee table.

    Maybe if we could get an idea of what the dark terra cotta vs the ocre would look like it would help a bit. Sorry, I am a very visual person (I am useless to you right now).

  2. Glad you like the table! I don't have any paint samples right now - later. Dear Salma ... you are never useless to me ... your mere presence in visiting my blog is such a gift. Thank you for being part of my life.
