Neon

June 10th, 2012

Thanks to everyone for all the kind comments about our {current} House.  We sure are gonna miss this place as it holds so many treasured memories.   Mr. vB and I had our first date in the dining room of this house.  Mr. vB also asked me to marry him in the living room of this house.  We came home as a married couple to this house. And we also came home as parents to this house. I keep telling myself that these memories will stay with us no matter where we live.  It’s time for the young couple that bought the house to make their own here.

Enough nostalgia- on to talking about our new place!

I’ve already started day dreaming about projects for the new house. Paint, Furniture, DEMO, etc!!  {totally not kidding on the demo- thought I would need a break from finishing up this place, but I’ pretty sure there will be some demo going on in the first month!}

I hit up one of my new favorite stores this week called Class and Trash.  It’s very true to its name.  Lots of cool old furniture and random things all mixed together.  I was short on time so had to peruse quick, but look what I found!

An old aluminum neon letter from a storefront.  It was missing the plastic cover, but I didn’t care.  How cute would this be in vannyB’s big boy room??

I took it to a local Neon shop yesterday called Uptown Neon.  Totally cool place.  The kind gentleman that owned the shop told me all about my letter and said that it was in great condition.  He even got the Neon to light up for me and it is a BRIGHT shade of red!  My plan in to spray paint the aluminium section of the letter a fun color and then have the guy attach a power source so I can plug the letter into the wall to light up!  The Coolest Night Light EVER is what I am imagining!!  I left the neon tubing with the guy so he could clean it up abit, and the plan is to go back in a week or so to have it all put back together!

Now the hard part- what should I paint the Letter??  I was thinking peacock blue or moss green but didn’t want it to look too patriotic or too christmasy..  Gotta think on this one.
