~Whatch Working on Wednesday~

This is what I've been working on...it seemed like it took all day too. LOL I like how it turned out. I painted it this morning and let it dry then distressed it but since it was such a wet, dreary day I didn't want to use the walnut stain so I went to the Dollar General and got some Kiwi brown shoe polish, I think it's neat for small projects like this but not for bigger ones anyway it came out neat and was dry right away it seemed.

I don't know where this is going to end up in my home but I was just glad to get it done! I did paint the white knob, just until I find the same size wooden one to go on there.

Here is a close up:

I know I'm late for WWW but I had to get some things done around here first before I posted on here. I also started something else but just couldn't get it finished in time.

I'd like to say a prim hi to my new friends who have joined me on my blog, thanks so much for coming along with me I so appreciate it:)

Work is fun and I'll be getting more hours as the holidays approach and more on payday which will help for Christmas:)

If you want to see who else did WWW go to Leslie's My Country Home it's alway so neat to see what everyone is doing:)


  1. Wow Rondell, it really turned out great. You did a wonderful job! I just love it!


  2. Wow, Rondell, I love how you did that redo!!! Fabulous! I never thought of shoe polish!!! LOL! Looks fabulous! I really love how aged it turned out. Like the drawer pull, too. Looks like you don't even have to change it!

  3. Oh, I love the redo. That shoe polish is really so useful in the prim world!!!

  4. Good Morning! That came out great...I need to try shoe polish. Have a great Day! Beth

  5. Hi Rondell! Thanks so much for the sweet comments you leave on my blog :) I just love your new little candle shelf- you did a great job with it! I'm sorry I don't leave a lot of comments for you- I try! I really do! I'm surprised that I am able to today b/c for some reason, when the comment section on blogs is not a pop-up, I can't not get it to recognize that I am signed in. I have tried several times to comment on your last posts- just don't want for you to think that I'm not reading- I am! lol Can't wait to see what else you've been up to :)


  6. Looks great, I would of never thought to use shoe polish, thanks for the tip!

  7. Rondell, that turned out great, LOVE IT! I also like using shoe polish, it's a little more forgiving than stain. Enjoy your day!!!

  8. Great makeover (but everything you do is great)! Never heard of using shoe polish, but what a wonderful idea. Does it seem weird to be working again, nice to have the money though. Bet you'll be BUSY throughout the holidays! Have a great day, Dawn

  9. That candle holder is beautiful!! Love what you did with it!!

  10. Rondell.....I think that is just great the way it is too.
    I have a couple little wooden things I am working on and I always forget to take the before picture. Always enjoy seeing what you have done.

  11. It looks great! I did not know about shoe polish but now it makes sense. I bet it does dry better on humid days. I am so glad I read this post! ♥

  12. Looks great. I will have to pick up some shoe polish and keep it on hand. Thanks

  13. Great Job!!! I just found brown shoe polish today and used it on a small project.


  14. Very prim, I like how it turned out.

  15. Hi Rondell, love all your goodies as usual! I wanted to post to your last one, what school does your son coach for? Hope you have a great weekend!

  16. Another terrific makeover, Rondell...

    Have a lovely (and hopefully dry!) weekend, my busy friend. Take care.

  17. Hi Rondell~ That came out great! I just picked one up that is very similar at a thrift store for .75 cents! Woohoo! Now I'm inspired for a makeover too.
    thanks for sharing all your wonderful ideas with us.
    Hugs~ Birgit
