A few weeks ago, I revealed our new and wonderful bar, here. But since then, I have had a visit from my decorating friend Beth of The Lone Rearranger. She loves colorful paints and suggested I get rid of the white and paint the bar area a color.
We talked about blue, turquoise, and others, but then by looking in the mirror, I knew what the color needed to be ——–
Yellow. This oil painting by my mother and my antique hi-rise bicycle can be seen in the bar mirror’s reflection.
We are treating the bicycle like a sculpture, and they work perfectly in our very wide hallway where the bar is tucked.
The color is a much deeper and more intense yellow than what is appearing on this monitor. I removed all of the glassware and taped everything carefully. I am not known as the world’s neatest painter. In fact, I really don’t enjoy it, but since this was such a little job, I took on the challenge.
But the yellow is it! It has that POP! factor.
This ceiling shot is for you, Beth H. The yellow on the ceiling and the walls is the same color, but they look completely different, don’t they? I have this same yellow in the guest room, and the color varies throughout the day. What you are seeing on the ceiling is the best representation of the true color.
So there you have it – the redoing of the redone bar.
