HAND PAINTING PINK FLOWERS ON A WHITE MIRROR FOR A BABY GIRL NURSERY
This mirror was an older plain white mirror.
I painted the pink flowers to match new bedding for a baby girl.
The white paint finish looked like lacquer, so instead of repainting it I sanded really well before painting the flowers. I used craft paints because they are so durable and wipeable. The mirror was older and had only a few small chips and scratches.
I used Ceramcoat white craft paint to touch up.
Usually, when I'm touching up something that is very white,
Ceramcoat's white is a good match.
These flowers are so sweet.
I finished painting it just in time for the baby shower today.
LOVING MY RETRACTABLE CLOTHESLINES IN MY LAUNDRY ROOM
A couple of years ago I came across a retractable clothesline.
It occurred to me that it was perfect for my 15' long laundry/sewing/work room.
Rags, rags, rags...
I use so many wet rags in my studio and working around the house. To let them dry out before putting them in the dirty clothes I would hang them on the laundry sink, the washer, dryer, just any place I could find a spot. When I found the retractable clothesline I knew it would be perfect to hang those wet rags and would look so much neater than rags hanging everywhere.
I really loved "hanging out those rags". I guess it was a little nostalgic.
So, since I had plenty of room I purchased another clothesline and started hanging out other pieces of my laundry. THEN, I purchased a third one because I wanted to hang out my sheets. You would not believe the difference between dryer dried sheets and hanging them out on this inside clothesline. The sheets are sooo soft and even smell good.
I placed the clotheslines so they are above my head when not in use. I do have to maneuver around the wet clothes when they're hanging out to dry. But, I don't mind one bit.
I truly LOVE hanging my clothes on a clothesline and
I love taking the clothespins off and folding everything.
Do you remember hanging out clothes? Do you still hang out clothes?
