Fall is ALMOST least for a tease!

The weather was spectacular today!  A high of 78 degrees and going to be in the upper 40s/low 50s tonight!  AMEN!  This is my kind of weather!  Today was once again a busy and unproductive (decoratively speaking) day.  Although I did manage to snap a picture of the assortment of frames, etc. that I will be sprucing up and making Shabby Chic!  They are all black or really dark wood tones and I am on a white and light kick!  Out with the old and in with the "new."  Here is the before:

Everything is going to get a splash of primer/white paint for sure and possibly some sort of tan over the top. Then LOTS of distressing. The corkboard/whiteboard is also getting painted and the whiteboard portion will be turned into a chalkboard (courtesy of chalkboard paint).  I'm not really sure where any of this decor is going in our place, but I just knew that I didn't like any of it the way that it was.  Tomorrow I will be visiting the local craft store to stock up and then tomorrow night I will hit the dungeon basement of ours and get to paintin'!  I can see it all in my head, but you will have to wait for the after pics until at least tomorrow night.

Til' tomorrow!
