I’m ready to make over my front hall and stair-case I pulled some photos from Pinterest for inspiration.
My there are some really creative people out there.
Holy busy staircase!
Believe it or not, I’ve been thinking of going with neutral tones on the wall and trim and a traditional black and white stair case.
Kinda like this.
I bet my cats could arrange for me to have real mice on our stairs.
Of course they would be belly up, with their heads chewed off.
Wonder how all black would look?
Maybe a faux runner?
Ooohh I’m liking this one, it feels really cottage appropriate.
Mr. Cottage and I are heading to the paint store for some ideas.
Do any of these inspire you?
See you later, Bye!
A couple of months ago Mr. Cottage dug through our scrap copper pile and came up with the idea to make a trellis for one of our clematis plants that was sprawling all over where it shouldn’t.
He played around with a couple of different designs and then he got to work soldering everything in place.
He used silver solder, even though it is quite a bit more expensive; because he says that the silver is a lot stronger and he felt it would hold up better over time.
Putting the finished design in place.
Not bad for his first attempt – don’t you think?
We call it the StarTrek Trellis.
Then the wait for the clematis to grow and take a hold on the trellis. Little by little, it climbed on up and buds started forming and finally… TAA DAA
The clematis has sprawled all over the trellis and has reached the top.
Hoo-ray for crafty husbands!
See you later, Bye
