Some new stuff, some redo's and a paint question!!

Just wanted to share some things that I have gotten and have redone lately.

This first picture is a set of metal stars that I got in the mail the other day from "Through the Country Door".

The next 2 pictues are of a cutting board that I refinished. As you can tell, there isn't much difference between the 2...lol. That's ok though!

And finally, I got my pantry cake in the mail yesterday so I was able to finish up my display for it. I got my cake from http://lizzieshomespun.blogspot.com
and she also has a website www.lizzishomespun.com The cake is awesome and it is not made with any food product so it will never go bad!
The plate that the pan and cake are sitting on is a cheeseboard round that I redid.

Ok, now finally on to my paint question. I would like to paint my kitchen in a prim mustard color but I can't find any color that I think is right....has anybody out there in blogland painted a room mustard color or am I totally off the wall with this??? Also, what color of mustard to you all use on your primitive items?? Thanks in advance for all your help!

We had a rainy day here today but the forecast is for sure starting to look good. I have already mowed once...last week and it needs it again. I love to mow!! Anyway, hope you all are having a great weekend!!

Brenda, I used Kilz paint (the same company that makes the primer you use in bathrooms to help prevent mildew) found it at Walmart and it was Antiquarian Brass. I love it used it in our Master bath and in the process of doing the living room in it too. It's so warm and cozy like candle light. Check out the swatchs at Walmart, they had lots and the paint was only $23.00 per gallon. ~Ann

I'm painting my living room as we speak! Taking a break for a few minutes. I tend to go neutral for all wall color and use accessories to provide the color -- in case I change my mind a year from now, or buy something new that would clash. I think its a personal preference.

Love your pretties, especially the shoo fly cover!!!! Wish I could help with the wall color. I want to see a pic when you get it painted. ~Martha
