It's hard to wrap my mind around anything but the new house these days! I'm trying to decide what to pack, what to sell, and what to look for in the three weeks before we close. The walls there are freshly painted beige; not what I would have picked, but I know the value of a wall someone else has already painted for you!
I'd like to brighten the walls with colorful art. The house's board-and-batten style siding remind me of the mountain cabins I see in Southern Accents (think Atlanta-does-rustic). I've always been fond of that elegant/country style and think I'll use it as inspiration for the new house. Those spreads often include lively folk art to wake up the stone and timber interiors. So I found this website with links to fabulous folk art coloring pages and a recommended book for creating folk art with kids. I'm sure we can come up with some low-cost projects from their templates!
