One of the treasures we found during renovating
was the original blue prints
used in 1954 to build the house!
When I was young....
I dreamt of becoming an architect.
While other kids were drawing pictures
of horses, unicorns, butterflies....
I was drawing floor plans.
Even a simple game of "playing house"
would lead to the "organization"
of a home design...
"from this tree to this tree is the living room,
the sandbox is the kitchen..."
you get the point,
I was alittle obsessed
to say the least!
Warning- real life photo.... rug needs vacuumed!
The rug we bought for this room is a great
combination of cream, brown, yellow and blue.
The same color blue as our original prints!
To create some unique artwork for this room,
we decided to have the blue prints framed!
We hung them on either side
of the opening to the back room!
Yesterday while "window shopping" in Lowe's
I found this little paint sample on the OOPS shelf
and guess what...
it's Blue Print Blue!
This bench has been a mulitude of colors...
and now I'm thinking of painting it blue!
Do you think I'm that brave?
Should I take that leap?
Am I the only one who
