I really tried to get this done by yesterday but with taking Samantha to school and picking her up and making dinner… Chris had dinner with us, I just didn’t get the time I needed to get it done. I found this cabinet at GW, I almost left it because of the engraving in the wood on the door but I’ve learned IF YOU LIKE IT DON’T LEAVE IT BECAUSE IT WON’T BE THERE THE NEXT TIME !
I just noticed the water is running from the faucet.LOL
Here is a closer look…I thought maybe if I painted over top of it I’d like it a little better but I DIDN’T, I thought of a label but it would have had to be a big label:)
So I asked Stush if he could turn the door around and this is how it looked when he did it:)
I like it black and please remember that I will be applying walnut stain when the weather EVER gets better around here, it’s snowing here and we are expecting strong winds so right now spring seems so far away. I did buy a bunny though:) at the Country Store yesterday and for only 3.50!
He’s made of muslin with tiny wooden rod legs with homespun tied around his neck.
Here it is on top of the drysink, I don’t have it decorated like I want but it will do for now:) After looking at the photo maybe I’ll do it in a barn red…do you think I should or shouldn’t? LOL
Yikes…that looks tall but I have cathedral ceilings so it really isn’t:) The coverlet and fabric hide the engraving:)
I like it closed too…my candles are lit, sure doesn’t look like it in this pic. I changed the knob to a wood one and I’m having fun with my detail sander, each piece that I do I learn a little more with how to use it.
I found the CS Tour of Homes at our little drugstore downtown and I love it, wasn’t Dan’s home (Yesterday Once More) just wonderful? I love all his collections especially those rolling pins~and also how about Linda’s home (The Keepingroom) it is primperfection!!! Love the twig rings around her lights and her kitchen cabinets… also the tips that they give on decorating which I took advantage of. One said to add a candle to the top of a hutch to make it look even taller…and it does:)
I'I have been living at The Country Store lately.LOL and GW but I just love going into The Country Store…it’s all done for EAster and spring as you walk in and it ALWAYS smells so good in there. It takes me away from this nasty winter here in Pa., at least for an hour I can forget all about the weather here. It doesn’t bother me that there are things there that I can’t afford right now that’s why I love the 50% off room, I’ve wanted one of these candle stands forever and found one in there, looks just right next to my stepback cupboard:)
This is what I’m dreaming of…I think the picture of the blocks says it all!
Boy, I did run on didn’t I? It’s nice though to talk to friends about things that we are both interested in isn’t it?
I hope everyone is staying warm and cozy where ever you are♥
