Waiting For The Postman

One of the packages arrived today!!!!

Now all I have to do is paint it and wait for the SECOND package to arrive to cover it.

I heard today that the second package will arrive before the 14th. As soon as it is here, I will do the big reveal.....

Here is a sneak peak at one of the two rooms....See the item to the left that arrived today and needs painting? Red or black?? That is the question I am wondering. What do you think? Oh, and see the chandelier shades? They will be changing too.


Rosie's Whimsy said...

Oh Penny! You are a tease! In a good way of course :-)

Can't wait to see everything you've been up to these past weeks.

We spent two hours chipping today! What fun! I might become a traveling chipper lady..... "I chip sticks for plants" could be my motto! hehehe

((hugs)) Rosie

Beverly said...

You tease, you. But, you do have me anxiously waiting for the big reveal.

I know it will be worth the wait.

Dena ~ swaddlecottage said...

Oh I cannot hardly stand it! I say black but red would be nice too!!! Goodness, I'm a lot of help aren't I?


Alison Gibbs said...

Oh - I say red.
Can't wait to see the big reveal.
Love the music

Kathleen Grace said...

A peek at the room? You stinker! I can't really see a thing! Hard to tell which color to vote for when I cant see everything. Maybe you could give us a bigger peek?

Donna Lynn said...

HI Penny! I vote for red! Everyone has black chairs...go for the gusto!!!

Yes, I sell my birdhouses!

I am having Michelle, of Shabby Creations doing a blog make over, I really love what she has done so far, do you like it? The test post is for my new signature! FUN!

Vee ~ A Haven for Vee said...

You're being awfully coy, Penny... ;>

Janet said...

Such a tease, and I say black is best!


BittersweetPunkin said...

Oh Penny...were you always a big tease?? LOL
Can't wait to see...and btw, I love your CUP in the previous post!!

Calamity Jane's Cottage, Bonnie said...

Penny, what are you up to. You have us all in suspense. I vote black you can change and mix anything with black. Have a Blessed Day, Bonnie

Cottage Contessa said...

Ohhhhhh Penny sweetie, I would paint that beautiful rattan chair RED! Can't wait to see your make over! Hugs!

Kentucky Bound said...

Can't wait for the reveal!

At first I was going to vote for black, but then I got to thinking GO FOR RED! You can always repaint years down the road if/when you get the itch to redecorrate again! So . . . count me in for RED!

Blessings & hugs!

Mary Isabella said...

Hey friend!! I vote for the color red....Mary

Edie Marie's Attic said...

Red or black, red or black... I can't think clearly because of all the suspense! I would choose black if you want it to go with other decors in your home (for an extra seating). I'd choose red if it's going to always stay in it's home in the kitchen. Of course a pop of red is so nice, but then black is so classic. What a hard question you proposed! I see your dilemma!
Hugs, Sherry

Donna said...

Ooo, can't wait! I say black.

Thanks for the tip with the magnolia leaf, Penny. What a great idea and so elegant.


Jeanne said...

Hello Penny, thanks for looking in on my post. After re-reading all the comments I had a big laugh too. It's all true, I wasn't a dog lover until Trippy. I am a changed woman, I love dogs.

Your ideas for your decorating project sound terrific. I don't think you need advice. You are a true artist. After seeing Beverly's mosaic I am trying to think about something you can do for me. We call our porch 'Vaughters Vista' I think there is a job here. (smile)

Can't wait to see your reveal.
Love ya, Jeanne

Look Beyond The Picket Fence said...

First, did you notice we just can not see through the fruit? (he he he) With that said I wish I could see just a little bit more. Since it is summer time I say red. Is the table red? Becasue then I say black. If the sun is out then black, raining out then red. As you can tell I just do not know what color. It will look fantastic what ever color you decide on, and it is only paint.

Sandi McBride said...

Oh you're a tease you naughty girl! Red of course!!!

Brenda Kula said...

Busy, busy, busy! You create such beautiful things. Where do you find the time, dear?

Brenda said...

It would be hard for me to decide and depend on the main color of the room. im thinking black though.

Barb said...

Hi Penny,

I can't wait to see the finished project. Black is classic but red is sooo cheerful. I say red.

Take care,

Rhondi said...

Hi Penny
Whatever color you decide will be great. I think red would be fun just because it's unexpected, whereas black is predictable. You are having fun teasing us aren't you? I know it is going to look fabulous and can't wait to see the finished room.

Susie Q said...

You are such a sweet teaser! I know it will be glorious and I will love it!! I can not wait to see the finished results!!

May I stop by for a cup of that delicious tea with you? : )

Oh! Penny? I broke 2 blue and white plates recently and I was wondering if you could use the fragments.
I am such a klutz but I was thinking yo would be able to use these bits in your projects instead of them going into the trash (Or recyclables as it were!)


Adrienne said...

Hi Penny -
Do we really have to wait? OK I guess we will. Can't wait to see what you're up to.

Catherine Holman said...

You are such a tease! How about red? How about both colors? You could paint the entire chair black then then paint a section with red for an accent. Since I can't see the whole thing, it's a little hard to say.

Mandii said...

Hi Penny, I think Im going to vote Red. Love red it's such a warm colour.
Cannot wait to see the reveal of the room!! Hmm Im sure it will be absolutley GORGEOUS!!
Take care

PAT said...

Hi Penny...My first thought was red and it still is red! So I vote RED!

Love the little glimpse! Looking forward to the reveal!


Sugar Bear said...

You have me so curious here!

Sugar Bear said...

You have me so curious here!

Susan Ramey Cleveland said...

Well, I guess I'm the only one who didn't know you were teasing. I thought something was wrong with my computer. I vote for yellow.

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

The suspense is building! It's going to be so much fun to see what you're doing!

I love getting packages in the mail, even if its something I ordered. It's almost like Christmas!

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

You tease, you!!!!!


Suzanne said...

Well, as usual I didn't read anything else because, although I respect every comment I didn't want the "gals" to influence me. I pick black. Why? I don't know. Perhaps because you're on a new journey. Honey, by the way, how do you find time to do all this? I'm so backed up the family room isn't done! Are you considering a visit to CA? Good...the family room needs your attention.

XO Suze

LW said...

RED…… everyone needs a little red chair….


Amy at Bunny Rose Cottage said...

Hi Penny! I am so excited to see your room complete :) I vote for red chairs!!!!


Rebecca Ramsey said...

Ooh Penny! I can't wait! Red or black would both be divine.

KarenHarveyCox said...

What fun Penny, you are better than the tease you get before they go to commerical break, so you don't change that dial! Love the song...brings back lovely memories. I can't wait to see your reveal...perfect choice of music. Karen

Glenda~Many Fond Memories said...

My vote is for the RED !
You have a colorful home and a little daring color would look wonderful.


bj said...

I can hardly wait to see all you are fact, it is just about to drive me crazy, wondering how it will all look. One thing for sure, tho...I KNOW we will all love it!
I make mention of you on my posting for Thurs morning....
hugs, bj

Lisa said...

Well, why not black with red accents or red with black accents? Get the best of both worlds.

Katherinellen said...

Oh.....go for red then black.....destressed it.....or go for black then red....destressed it.. I love color...I would go for red....And I also love classic....go for black. whatever you do, I know it gonna be gorgeous! You have a bless day! Kathy

Linda said...

Tara said...

Cindy's Red Door said...
