Cream Iron Architectural Piece

I added a little accent to the frames and plates on our basement guest bedroom wall.


I would like to first thank all my readers and friends who take the time to stop by and visit with me here at Blue Clear Sky. I appreciate you. I have noticed quite a few new followers and email/FB subscribers who may not have seen the changes I am slooowly making to our basement guest suite. 



These frames and plates on the wall between the walk in closet and bedroom door are one of those projects using items I already had. We have so many things we need to freshen and maintain in our too big for us home that I am working on updating our basement by using things we already own, thrift store and yard sale finds. 


This iron scroll piece adds a bit of visual height to this shorter wall (under a heating duct.) I see now that I will have to pop down there with some cream paint to cover the screws. It is a really heavy piece and I didn't want it falling on someone. I'm looking for a narrow cabinet or bookcase for the spot below these frames to hold a small flat screen TV.

I finish school/work for the summer on Friday and I can hardly wait to start a few projects (well, after my surgery next week.) Finishing painting the doors and trim in this bedroom will be high on my list. What are you keeping busy with this week?

  1. I like the architectural piece Elizabeth. It looks really nice. I wish I could find a piece like that for my living room wall. I'll keep looking. I hope all goes well with your surgery next week. Blessings to you. Pamela

  5. I am not a plate-on-the-wall kind of girl but these look gorgeous. I would love to see the finished room, or at least in its entirety...

  6. I am definitely a plate-on-the-wall girl and love the look! I love the different things you have done on your house. You remind me of a younger me. Wish I still had the energy I had "back then" and could get as much done as you obviously do!

  7. very pretty vignette

    while you are touching up the screws, why don't you add a bit of the cream to the plate holders too, then they wouldn't be so obvious :-)
