~I Just Couldn't Wait~

to show you what I didn't have for WWW this week, like I said the stain was just to sticky to move it from the garage to my dining room.
I bought this from Michael's, with a 50% off coupon, in the beginning of July and just now had time to do it. Stush covered what needed to be covered then I spray painted it black but it was coming out gray looking and I didn't like that! So I painted it black then distressed it where it would have got some wear on it. I put it in the corner of my dining room, I had my sewing machine cabinet there but it was just to big looking and taking up to much room. Now there is such a difference makes the room look bigger!
This stitchery I made a long time ago so I don't have the designer's name, if you know please tell me and I'll give credit:) I haven't used this sampler for years, I just couldn't find it and I knew I hadn't sold it, so where did I find it? Behind another sampler lol, I must have needed the frame for a Christmas one and just covered it up with homespun and the sampler. I don't know what made me look but there it was, the rust colored homespun is from the Ragg Shop, remember those ? That went out a long time ago:)

Here's what I have on top of it, my sewing things are on the inside, neat place to keep everything for stitcheries!

Here is another veiw...

I really like the lamp lit in fact I have it on now but for the picture I had to turn it off because of the glare. I hung the patriotic picture... finally, it just took me a while to find a place for it!

Today I went to the Dollar Tree and ran the register for about an hour and a half, it was easy because I remembered somethings from when I worked there for Christmas. I work Monday and Tuesday 2 to 7 then not until next week do I get more hours but that will soon change with the holidays coming on so very fast it seems!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend, it's cooler here in fact we have the AC off so it won't be long till we have to start up the woodstove:)


  1. hi rondell~
    love your cabinet~i'm gonna have to get one~love seeing how everyone is finishing them~love the halloween stitchery too~thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such kind comments~i appreciate it!

  2. What a great little cupboard Rondell. It fits perfectly in the corner too. I love the ladder near it like that. And the fall decor makes me itch to put mine out.

    I find the black spray paint just ins't black enough too. I love the craft paints from Micheals on pieces that size. The black covers amazingly well!

    Have a great weekend! I am loving the chill today - I even baked (as in HOT OVEN) pork chops!! LOL

  3. Rondell,
    I just love how your cabinet turned out!!
    It's chilly here in Ohio too...starting to really feel like Fall. And I'm lovin' it!
    Hope you are having a great weekend.
