Mod Mix Monday #146

Love this color palette in the above photo. 
Bright pastels mixed with more serene pastels and lots of white.
I have a thing for those tulip tables. 
So fresh mixed with the more traditional chairs.
Adore that light fixture in red and the painting too!

This week we are starting off my favorite picks with my favorite pieces of furniture.
Buffets! Especially this style of buffet.
If you've painted a buffet similar to this and link it up...most likely it will end up in my
favorites because I never tire of these things!
The Weathered Door adds a surprise of green inside! 
Green and gray are not a 
combination I'd think of and don't they look great?
 Some What Quirky Designs painted this buffet in a combination of white and coco.
Love the way the coco paint highlights all the details.
DD's Cottage and Design painted an old buffet in French Enamel Blue by Miss Mustard Seed
Very nice and chippy....just a wonderful piece.
Purple Hues and Me whipped up this super cute runner with ribbon flowers and shares how to make it! 
Maison de Pax showed how to white wash wood.
This effect really opens up a paneled room. 
Plus it's a nice effect for the cedar doors she is using. 
Finding Silver Pennies did a new effect on the inside of this desk.
What a wonderful surprise to open the gray desk and find this 
pretty fun pattern stenciled inside!
Trois Petites Filles is back with another fabulous piece of furniture.
Her house is full of them! This vanity is extra special. 
She painted it and embellished it
in an unusual way.

I'm really struggling with the new job schedule.
I'm working seven days straight then I'll have two days off and then work another seven days straight.
I'm not sure why it goes this way. 
Doesn't make sense to me.
I know why they have a rotating schedule but don't know why I have to work seven 
days in between days off.

I'll be off a couple of days this week and hope to take in this movie.
I love Wes Anderson films and the reviews are great for this one.
Am I crazy for wanting this poster to hang in my house?
That is the prettiest hotel, ever!

So lots for me to do this week. 

I do like my new job...but to be honest I like being home more. 

I do....

I'm at my happiest creating and puttering around my cottage with the weenies.

I also liked it when I worked close to home. 
I'm not super far away now but I'm in a totally different part of town and I'm partial to my part of town.

So it's an adjustment and not all roses.

Share your Mod Mix's in this week's party below.

Remember anything old made over to be new...anything new changed up to look old.
New and old together...

Love that poster and yes it would look great in your HOme! The movie looks good too. Can't wait to hear your review.
Love the vanity redo.
I am not a fan of the colored chalk paints. Not sure why...
Happy MMM!

Denise @ secondtimearoundfinds said...

Some lovely features.
Thanks for the party.
Have a great week.

karen@somewhatquirky said...

Hey thanks for the feature! No. You are not crazy for wanting that poster in your house. It's gorgeous and would look awesome in your home. A nice juxtaposition to some of your feminine things. Glad things are going well at work and that your stamina holds up!

Diane said...

Love the pretty blue dining area. I don't envy you your work schedule. That's a lot of days with only two off, hope it goes well for you. Love the desk redo feature, thanks for taking the time to host each week!

Unknown said...

Nita, Thank you so much for hosting and featuring my vanity. I love that poster and I will be getting myself one too. It would look gorgeous in a tattered but still glamorous gilded frame. Don't you think?

pogonip said...

Bunnies, pastels and new starts--it must be springtime!

What an odd schedule--I think working seven days might be a challenge but I'd love having a rotating schedule of days off like that!

Unknown said...

Thanks for hosting Nita!! Have a wonderful week- xo


Danielle said...

Nita, love all the features! Thanks so much for including my desk! x

Amy Chalmers said...

That pink hotel looks like a wedding cake to me...at least thats what it makes me think of. So glad for your party~you always have good participants and I found someone special last time...started a new blog friendship and she is from massachusetts too! your schedule is strange. 7 days then two off sounds like it only works for your boss!!

Teddee Grace said...

I just watched the trailer for the movie. It looks fantastic. Enjoy getting away from the job for a bit and thanks for the tip!

Adam Hazlett said...

That is odd they make you work seven days straight...is that just because you're new?
I'm sure you'll love your new and improved paycheck! How far is your commute? That movie looks way fun but, Sam doesn't always like that style of humor. We will probably rent it.

Cindi Myers said...

I'm with you!
No matter how much I like my job, I'd rather be home.
In fact most of the time, no matter what I'm doing, I'd rather be home.
Love these picks!
I am going to paint my red china hutch.
Sometimes I'm going to paint it black but most days I'm going to paint it white.
Although on other days I think turquoise! LOL!
Alas, that's why it's still RED!
I drive myself crazy.

I feel for you and your work schedule Nita, sounds really rough. I hope you get time and a half over forty hours and double time on Sunday, that would make a big difference. I was always salaried and got paid the same whether I worked sixty hours or forty hours.

Thank you for hosting even with this Marathon work schedule. Thank you, Candy
