Are U Gals Ready For The Weekend!!!



I can't believe it is already Friday! My gosh this week just flew by.
I thought I would share with you wonderful ladies what else I have done this week besides my dining room redo.

This first thing I did was paint my cabinet in the mud room. It was a barn red color and I did like it okay. But as I have talked about before, I am attempting to add more of a colonial look mixed in with my primitive decor.
Baby steps for me, still trying to find my way.
So I decided to paint the cabinet black. I really like the way it turned out. In the photos it appears shinny, but in person it isn't.
I am considering sanding it and then staining it. I thought it would look good for some of the red underneath to show and then stain would give it more of an aged look. Well, that is my plan, but who knows when I will get around to actually doing it.
Below is a before and after photo of the cabinet.

See the shine in the pict's! Gosh dang it!!
It really isn't like that in person!! :(

Okay, the next thing I did was after my dining room redo.
In one corner of the dining room, I did have a stack of old wooden fruit boxes.
Old display in dining room...

I knew I didn't want to get rid of them so I decided to move them up to my kids bathroom.
This is a room that is impossible to decorate, not to mention impossible to keep clean!
There is a high, small, window in the bathroom. I always felt it needed some type of small cabinet under the window. But I could never find what I was looking for. I wanted little cabinet to hold extra towels and t-paper. Also an easy access spot for my daughter makeup, hair brushes, etc.
I thought these boxes worked great for that.

The small cheese box on top holds her hair brushes. I used one of my larger blue granite pots from the dining room to hold extra t-paper and a small wooden box where I have an easy to reach roll. I do need some new towels for in here. Some pretty ones, believe me, it is on my list. But this is just a thrown together project, so please try not to pay too much attention to my towels. :)


If you ladies are anything like me (which I would say you are).
I seem to get something new for my home every week.
Even if it is something small or a tiny nick knack, I buy something new at least once in the week.
So I have decided, that on Friday's I am going to be showing off my new goodies I found through out the week.
And here they are...
First, I will start with my favorite! These actually came in today.
I LOVE Candles!! Simply cant get enough. I have at least one burning everyday, sometimes more than that.
I purchased these amazing candles online from:
Endless Esscents ~N~ Flames
http://www.candlesby-valerie.com


These are so fabulous. A 20 oz jar candle in the design and scent of Smores!! I bought the jar candle to burn. But now that I have actually seen it in person, I may not have the heart to.
See the wonderful details of graham crackers, chocolate squares and marshmallow!! So cute!

Price was: $14.00

I also purchased these small Smores design candles. I bought these for display. And its a good thing because I know I couldn't burn these cuties!! But yes, they are actual candles and you can burn them. They also have the scent of Smores. They are life size graham crackers with marshmallow and chocolate design inside.

Price was: $4.50 each.

If you love candles as much as me, you must go check out her website. Because these are not only adorable, they smell soooo yummy!

This week I also bought online this fabulous old wooden candle box with sliding lid.
I purchased this from:
Black Cat Primitives
www.blackcatprimitives.com

Price was $20.00



This makes a perfect bottom stacker for my collection of now 2!! :)

Hey, Every collection must start somewhere. LOL!



I also got this Betty or Whale lamp from the local craft and antique store that I always go to. I would say it is a reproduction because of the price, but you sure cant tell by looking at it!! I Love it!
Purchased from:
The Rabbit Patch Cottage
Herrin, IL

Price was: $19.00


And last but not least, I purchased this wonderful twig wreath.

Price Was: $11.00 (from a local craft supply store).
Here is a photo of my foyer, where I have my new box, my new lamp and my new wreath.




I hope you all had a wonderful week. And wishing you all a fabulous weekend!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Until next time, Happy Prim wishes to you all!! ~Tammy
