spring projects

My knitting projects all seem pretty boring right now. Nothing seems close to being finished. I seem to be working on my Hanne with no end in sight. That sweater just goes on forever........rows and rows of garter!
So in need of some instant gratification, I decided to paint my vanity that has been in dire need of a paint job for years. I chose Restoration Hardware's signature color, silver sage. My sister Lisa painted her bathroom this color and loves it.
I also found some beautiful drawer pulls at anthropologie, on sale. Gotta love that!
I am meeting Keana tomorrow at Knit One, maybe I will find a new project that can be knit a little quicker!

Love the drawer pulls! I want to live at Anthropologie. You know, in the back where the big, comfy bed is. Do you think they would notice? I can't wait to see the results. Even the paint can looks classy.

Beautiful drawer pulls. Keep at the knitting - I also have slow periods where I don't feel I am progressing.

Can't wait to see the vanity. Did you get the chance to see the Ballerina in person? I have been so curious to try one on.

They have such awesome paint, Ihelped my MIL paint her dining room & family room with their paint. She used Latte & some other yellowish color, but I can't rememeber the name. I like their Seashore Collection. Can't wait to see the vanity.

Those knobs are beautiful - like bottles of milk! I need to finish up some painting, I have put it off for too long!

I LOVE Silver Sage from RH. That's one of my faves and will probably be in some room of my future home someday. Good choice!

Again, Anthropologie is the best . . I love those drawer pulls! Sometimes the little accents just make everything so much more special.

Wish I could be there to help you paint and decorate!

Those drawer pulls really are beautiful! They remind me of looking at the earrings in my grandma's jewelry box. Your vanity is going to be beautiful!
