So glad to be back and thanks so much for the prayers and comments, my knee is doing better but I know I will need PT, I just have to wait till this Friday when I go to the doctor's when I have to start and by the way I had a torn cartleige which was never going to get better but I just kept putting it off until I know longer could.
I'm going crazy not being able to do anything, about the only things I can do is fold clothes and load the dishwasher.....I know it's nice but after a while it gets to be old, myself I'd rather be doing something then just sitting there. So since it's raining and only 56 outside and I'm so tired of TV I could scream..... I decided to do the cupboard I bought for $5.00 at the fleamarket. It's the first for me to distress something and really didn't realize how hard it is to figure out where there would have been wear and tear . Finally I just decided to go for it, it needs a coat of something but otherwise I like how it turned out, there is an extra shelf that goes in the top but the guy who sold it to me said that he had lost the pegs, I painted that black too and I'll make a sign but haven't thought of what words I'll put on it yet. My camera picks up everything so it looks so much better than what the camera is showing. I really can't decide whether to hang it in my bedroom or the bathroom, which is coming along great, just amazing what a can of paint, Pergo floor, and new vanity and mirror/medicene will do to update a 1983 bath into one of today's look. I can't wait to show you pictures of my vanity sink, I just love it.... I want to wait and show you when it is all done and decorated. Also my bedroom, I'm still tossing it around in my head about dyeing a quilt and shams that I got at the fleamarket last year for $12.00, it's not an antique or anything like that, just a department store type and I also have on hand a bottle of Tan Rit dye. Now on the label of the bottle it says for about 2lbs of fabric, the quilt isn't heavy at all but I sure don't know how much a quilt and two shams weigh.LOL I guess I should just go ahead and do it....that's the only thing with remodeling you put all the $$$ in the fixtures and there is few left to decorate with but my new friend Leslie of http://sweets-mycountryhome.blogspot.com/ has taught me to look around at what I do have and make it into what I'd really like to have. So that is what I'm trying to do...the guest room will have all patriotic in it which includes a good quilt and the new, bigger bedroom is painted a Golden Dune and has the black headboard so I need a new quilt to go in there and I want something different then the Barnred, navy and white. I think the tan will give it a tea dyed look and tone it down some. I'll let you know how it turns out! Have a Blessed Day!
A Pleasant Home
