New Canvas Art and Lakehouse Work

We have been busy at the lakehouse lately, as we prepare it to become our home.  My husband retired last month (yay!) and that gives us a much 
more flexible schedule to get the work done.

You might remember a post I shared last summer with a kitchen project.  
You can see some of the brick walls in the room in this photo...
we love the architectural look brick gives.

Right now we are redecorating the upstairs area, 
which has three bedrooms and a bathroom.  
We are ripping up the old carpet.
Three different UGLY remnants had been used...
and we'll be re-doing the old wood floors we found underneath.

We plan to incorporate some of the brick look into the upstairs, too...
on some wall areas, and framing in a chimney pipe opening.

Recently I had an opportunity to try some artwork from Creative  They have wonderful artwork pieces in many styles and types...canvas, metal, glass, planked wood, framed canvas, acrylic, and other specialty products.  I loved so many of their prints and photography pieces. but one piece from their vintage collection really called to me!  It is a piece titled "Hardware Store".

It is perfect for the look we are creating.  
I love the look of the chippy old brick and the colors.

It is beautifully framed...a quality product.  
This one is 20" x 24" and 1.5" thick wrapped canvas.

The distressed, chippy brick is beautiful...

  1. It looks great! I love the bedding and the print goes great in there!

  2. Your lake home is gorgeous. I love all the things you are doing. The brick wall is going to be great and that print is fabulous. Happy New Week.

  3. Linda, I love what you are doing! The hardware sign is so much fun. :)

  4. Yay for retirement! Can't wait until we're in the move mode. Wow, three different carpets...can't wait to see the floors refinished! Love the canvas sign. It looks so cool!

  5. How wonderful that you can move into your lakehouse, Linda. The wood floors look so much better than the carpet. That's a lovely print for your bedroom.
