Well, this is what I've been working on for the past week...staining my little heart out. Honestly, I'm either staining or spraypainting something everyday, I know Stush thinks I've lost it:) but it keeps me busy and out of trouble.lol
You remember the book holder I found at the Salvation Army store? This is how it turned out...I just painted it lamp black and distessed it then stained, I like my never used cookbooks out on the counter now instead of hid away in the cupboard and that's my African Violet that Sydney gave me about three years ago for Easter....it grows but never blooms:) The beanpot Stush's brother gave to me and it is full of pennies waiting to be rolled to buy a prim treasure someday:)and yes I made the little sampler on the wall.
Stush surprised me with my stoveboard the other day, I was surprised because I've been asking for him to do it forever:) I heard him out in the garage and went to investigate and he told me it was for the boat...boy, was I disappointed but didn't say anything. Later when I came out to the kitchen there it was laying on top of the stove, what a sweet guy I have!
Needless to say I've had it three colors, first I painted it barnred, didn't care for it, then black but didn't have enough Buttermilk paint to do over top. In the garage I spotted the can of Buff paint that we used for the kitchen walls, so I used that and I think it turned out great! I tried to use Primp Your Pad at Gathered Treasures decorating hints that she posted:)stop over to see!
Also stop to visit Leslie and all the others to veiw what they have for Whatcha Workin on Wednesday. Have a good one:)
