~Whatcha Working on Wednesday~

Well, I've been a busy tweaking bee today...staining and tweaking that is. I watched the girls yesterday and when I came home Stush and I went out for pizza and I didn't get a chance to stain. They are still sticky so I'll have to save those for next week...the one that dried really quick is the trencher here it was a very light colored wood and it took the walnut stain really well, I had bought it from eBay awhile back and had every intention of staining it darker but finally, today I did it. It's holding the bowls and the candle with the candle hugger I ordered from Karen of My Colonial Home I just love it!

Here is a closer look at it...hopefully I can order more for Christmas, I think they make great gifts, I love Yankee Candles but sometimes the labels I don't care for, the candle hugger covers it up and it fits right in with your prims so well!
I found this picture at a yard sale for a $1.00 and just painted the frame black and distressed it, sorry for the glare, it's a barn with sheep in the foreground, I put it under my bowl rack!

Here are my slip covered wing back chairs, the one on the right I already had and the one on the left is from GW, please excuse the mess on my dining room table I have prims on there plus my water bottle and mug of coffee:) I bought the pillow at GW for a $1.00 also!

I added the black basket to the table but I don't know what to put in it,

I added this napkin, I think it gives a more Colonial look to the shelf!

My bowl rack I'm certainly enjoying...added the primitives sign and the old looking prim doll.

I do love my mantel now since I did it in blue...I moved some things around and put my old wheel and the primitive angel doll amongst everything else!

I also redid my shelf above my sofa and a big thanks to all that commented to help me with it, I used some of your suggestions, but looking at the picture on here I think I'll move the barn red hanging box over to the right or left. I do like the arrangement better now!

Look at this bounty of vegetables from a friends garden, I'm thrilled...look at the huge, green pepper...you can get three stuffed peppers out of it!

I thought it was going to be cooler today but the sun is out and it's hotter then I thought it was going to be so I better get busy around here!
Stop by Leslie's to see who else did WWW!

  4. Rondell,
    Wow! You have a lot of good treasures there! I love your slipcovers. I wish I could find some. Because I sure can't afford new ones! Well, have a blessed day!

  5. IT looks like you are really enjoying tweaking and decorating again now that you are done with the painting!

    The coverlet towel really looks nice on the shelf - it helps it stand out from the light wall.

    Love the trencher!! Great find - I think that is my favorite!!

    It's brutal here today. I'll take cold and rainy ANY day over this. Like the kids say "it's icky" LOL

    Stay cool and have fun with more tweaking.

    hugs, Linda

  6. Wow, you have been a busy bee! Everything looks great, I really like what you did with the shelf over the sofa!

  7. Oh Rondell I love it all! The wall clock next to your shelf is awesome! Looks like your friends are having great success with their garden. We got four Roma tomatoes and that's it. Hubby has already mowed over most of the garden. We'll try again next year.

  11. Love the slipcovers...are they ones you have had or is there a chance you could say where I might find ones like them? I am amazed at all your energy. esp. when it is SO hot. I barely have the oomph to THINK about doing what you actually did...LOL!!

  20. Rondell, everything looks great! you have been really busy!

    I like how you arranged your wall shelf and I love your bowl rack! I wish I had roo for a big piece like that, but my wall space is very limited. Couldn't help but notice your gorgeous clock too. You know I love that!

    Your chairs looks so comfy! And the trencher is awesome!

    Have a great day, girlie!

  21. Rondell, Everything looks great. I especially like the picture you got of the barn and sheep - I love black faced, black legged sheep. If you'd like to start tweaking on my house, come on over! ~Ann
