She's gonna be sooo pretty.....

 Some of my friends will remember this amazing
shutter room divider that made my heart skip a beat when I found it.

Since I am VERY partial to painted furniture, it is only a
matter of time until she will be sporting a COLOR....

I was SURE the color would be a shade of GREEN...

 THAT IS until I found THIS......

"be still my foolish heart.....!!!!

Oh, yes...
why, I luv everything about THIS choice...

...the very COLOR
sets my feet a'dancin'

I have an obsession  with Chip and Joanna Gaines...
every single thing they do to houses looks so amazing !!!!
...the NAME of the color...
is like music to my ears 
♥ ♥ ♥

...being born and raised in TEXAS
might....just MIGHT... have a tiny bit of WHY I like the name of the chosen color. 

I love this tiny vintage creamer...

I think they are called
 restaurant  creamers...

I have a little collection of creamers and tiny pitchers so when I saw THIS one with the stars,
I just HAD to have the tiny thing....

I get excited over the smallest things...

a paint NAME as well as the COLOR...
 Mr. Sweet always laughed when I picked paint...
he said it was for the name as much as the color...😄

tiny little star-studded creamers.... 

...sometimes it's the small things in life....

I love this color so much that if I had a special wall. THIS one...

 I would SOOO paint it with TEXAS SUMMER.
Everybody that loves SHIP LAP, clap your hands !!

♪♪...deep in the Heart of Texas. ♪ ♪♪

As soon as my paint arrives and I have some pretty days to spray paint
this divider,
YOU will be among the first to see it.
I can hardly wait.


  1. Yep! That will be gorgeous. :)

  2. BJ, It is the small things in life. I love your creamer. Oh I too love that entryway. We watch the Gaines do fixer upper , here all weekend. I am excited to see your screen in the new color with such a sweet name.:):) Blessings, love, xoxo, Susie

  3. Oh girl, you inspire me to paint something:) I can't wait to see that beauty all dolled up for Spring! Have a blessed day dear B.J. HUGS!

  4. I agree with you , it is the small things!! This color is fab! I have been on the hunt for a divider like yours - can't wait to see it painted!!

  5. PERFECT! I knew you would figure it out the prettiest way. oooh Just look at the red with that Texa Summer! I Love Chip and Joanna Gains. How far away from Waco are you?

  6. That is a good shade of green

  7. Great choice!! Our next visit to Waco I want to go to the Bakery! I have been to Mahnolia but not the Bakery and now the restaurant on the circle is about to open! I love the Gaines and I love Waco!

  8. Gorgeous color! My Texas heart loves the name also!

  9. Oh yes, I remember the days when coffee cream in restaurants was served in tiny white pitchers like those! A million years ago now, it seems, LOL.

  10. I love that color. I, too, choose paint by the name and the color. I refuse to buy paint that just has numbers. lol... I used to collect restaurant creamers. I have a few. So dear. That one with the stars is great!

  11. That's a fabulous color. You will love it when it's done. And I had to laugh -- I save those Better Homes and Gardens paint pages. They stopped doing them for awhile and I wrote them a little nastygram saying I missed that! I don't think they're in every month -- but enough!

  12. I bet that Divider will look wonderful in that Texas Summer paint. - Chip & Joanna do great work, will sure miss their show.

  13. Hooray for shiplap! (but I have to add that bead board is my very favorite) Have you read Chip Gaines' autobiography? I did a few months ago. Very good reading.

  14. I love Chip and Joanna also, great show. There decorations are amazing.

    Like the color you picked out and I know it will look terrific.

    Enjoy your weekend.


  15. I love Joanna and Chip Gaines, too. I also like Ben and Erin Napier. Perhaps equally as well. Oh that color is fabulous! It’s so great that I’m sharing it with my daughter. She needs a great color for her new front door.

  16. That is going to be so pretty. I love that itty bitty pitcher with a star.

  17. I am anxious to see the shutter divider after it is painted. Great photos I really like the little pitchers. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  18. Hello... Have a great Saturday... Please add me to your list. Thanks.

  19. Well that seems quite fitting to paint with Texas Summer. I'm going to miss Fixer Upper for sure. Hope you have a wonderful weekend, bj!

  20. Love the color and yep this one is going to be a beauty. Have a good weekend.

  21. Oh bj, you're so cute! I pick paint colors by their names, too, as if it matters! Aren't we a pair?! Your shutter is going to be gorgeous. I love the little creamer, too. xx

  22. bj, I have that very same divider...I bought it new from Pier One. I can't wait to see it painted. I love the name of the paint too! Guess it's because we're Texans to the core! :) That creamer is adorable. Have a wonderful weekend!


  23. I love any shade of blue and Texas Summer is beautiful. Can't wait to see what you do with your new divider when painted!

  24. The smallest things in life make me happy and sing too. Holding on to the small things and moments is important in life. Love your pitchers and looking forward to seeing your shutter all pretty.


  25. The colour looks fantastic, BJ. Love the plant, too.

  26. wow !!! it really beautiful so much.i like your good idea Thanks for the inspiration!


  27. During our recent visit to the States I 'feasted' on HGTV and was so inspired by Chip and Joanna and their talents. If I had even a thimble-full of such skill and an eye for décor. . . xxx J.

  28. I am looking forward to seeing the finished product - such a pretty color!

  29. Love the color..AND the name! lol That ought to be a bit tricky painting that with spray paint---watch out for drips off the louvers. LOL

    Have a wonderful week, bj. xo Diana
