Updates: The Rae Dunn inspired plates (not done); The lower level repainting - golden khaki walls to light gray, and painting dark wood furniture white/light gray

Brainstorming ideas....
Good Morning coffee friends -

It's a lazy, early, quiet morning here in the Coffee Haus (it's just 6:40 am now). I'm on my 2nd cup of coffee, Mr. Coffee is off today but in bed, obviously.  It's just me and the birds awake now, as the dogs are snoring in their beds near me.

I don't have much to chat about this morning.  Although, I'm wondering how some of my old coffee friends are doing.  There are some I stay in touch with through email and such, but there are others whom we've lost touch and if any of you are reading this this morning, please either comment below (at the very bottom of the posts) or drop me an email.  You know how to reach me!  :)


Trying different ideas
I never finished the plates I mentioned in the previous post because I've just not found the design I like that feels right yet.

I've tried the Rae Dunn influenced.  I've tried script.  'Forgot Your Phone?" word searches and other puzzles.  FARM FRESH style photos and logos.  Flowers. Leaves.


The photos are of my dining room table at this very second (yeah, for real) as I have various "TEST" images, words, fonts printed out on paper to brainstorm and 'trial and error' what I think I might want.  Meh.  So far none are speaking to me, saying 'yep, this is the design/font/word/photo' I want to use.

I'll continue to brainstorm.

We have to go to a family members home this morning to cut some barn wood for a bar top - but later we'll head back home to start todays project - repainting the lower level.  The bathroom was started - and we are loving it - so we are doing the whole basement (FINALLY!).  And since Mr. Coffee is helping with the walls, I've started to repaint, repurpose and recycle some of the wall decor, the mirror, etc.

Yesterday I painted the heavy, dark espresso wood bathroom mirror white.  Eeek!  It was a big step but I plan to paint the matching wood sink base as well and the mirror was a 'baby step'.  I was a bit nervous as once I took white paint to that dark wood there was no going back... but I loved it!

Ok!  Time for me to brew one last cup of coffee, check some email accounts and then... get dressed and start my day.

Thanks for popping in!  Remember - if you plan to buy anything from Amazon (anything AT ALL - groceries, decor, car parts, books, furniture...)  please considering clicking one of the affiliate links from this page.  Any link will take you there.  Thanks so much!
