More Eye Candy From Victoria Magazine

Victoria Magazine has done it again.
They have a new publication out called Rooms of Bliss.
I found this issue today at my home-away-from-home, Lowe’s.

I was just getting ready to run out to pick up a few things at Wally World but it’s pouring rain now so instead, I think I will curl up on the sofa with a cup of coffee and devour the contents of this beautiful magazine.

Oh Shari, this looks soooo yummy! Have to go and check it out! Wish we would get some of that rain. They were calling for severe thunderstorms for yesterday, then it all blew south. We need it.

Shari,
This magazine looks wonderful, thanks for sharing the tip!
I see you have been a busy bee and love all the changes. Your new sofa looks great and should be fun to work with!
Thank you again for carrying my daughter Heather's photo and link on your sidebar. There was a delay, but we will know if the donor is a approved the end of August. I'm leaving Heather's post up for now in case we need to find someone else, but I believe things will work out.
Hugs, Cathy

Pam,
Thanks for the question on my blog. Yes, black satin paint can look very black and flat. It can also show finger prints and scuff very easily. If you want a softer black, you can do a few things. First of all, you can knock down the edges of the chairs with sandpaper to expose some of the wood, then rub the chairs with a dark walnut stain. That will add a bit of shine and a hint of dark brown to soften the black. Another option is to pick an "off black" from a paint chip and repaint all of the chairs in a custom color. This will be a lot of work, so you may want to try the first option.

Send me an e-mail directly if you have any specific questions. marian@missmustardseed.com
