I am so proud of myself....ever since I took the initiative with my studio shelf (see previous post), I am FINALLY feeling energized to get some things done around my house. Some days I think that is what holds me back from really getting into my crafts - the idea that I SHOULD get things done in the house....then I just completely shut down and do neither. Oy!
Anyway, this project pictured below is only half done, but only because I have to run back to Lowe's to get more grout.....I have a small vanity in the upstairs bath that had that old, probably original linoleum crap on it....so, I broke up some vintage plates that I had been collecting in a closet and tiled around the sink.....I love it! I can't wait to see it when it is actually grouted....I plan to work on that this weekend. I will post a finished product pic at that time.
Then, I had this shelf that my mom gave to me and I love it and need it for the kitchen, but it was this gross green........so I painted it burgundy, hung a few crystals from the top, and I like it. You can kind of see the open shelves at the bottom of the pic....I am making curtains for those, that match the curtains I have in my lower kitchen cabinets (the curtains were an idea which I totally took from Karla at Karla's Cottage - thanks, Karla!)....a really neat burgundy/cream toille fabric!
Okay, and finally, speaking of kitchens, I really do love mine! I love my corian counter tops and my seamless sink; I love all of my crystal jars, both new and vintage (that hold cat treats, dog treats, rabbit food, etc); I love my mirrored glass jewelry box that I use for tea bags, etc; I love the vintage plates and pictures and frames with loved ones (both animal and human); and check out the fantastic cat mold that my godmother just sent me for my birthday (which is tomorrow Jan 24 - I will be 43!! - where did the years go??) - I love it all! These pics are just the one corner of the kitchen and then my memory card was full and I had to get to work......but you get the gist! The only thing that really bugs me right now is the cabinet door pulls - I really need to find some crystal ones - that will be my next mission on eBay.
Well, thanks for listening to my rambling......
