I hope you are having a wonderful week.
I’m finally feeling a little better. The blahs seem to be passing somewhat.
Thank you, God!
I was truly getting on my own nerves.
With this new found energy, I went to work on a couple of projects.
One of them was repainting the cupboard in my Mud Room.
The black paint was way too dark for the small space.
I had noticed several pins on Pinterest about chalk paint and thought I would give it a try.
I went with what seemed to be cheapest and easiest for me.
I have been reading that some people also apply a wood wax finish. I am not familiar with wood wax.
I do believe the cupboard does need some type of sealant on it and I don't want the shine of polyurethane.
I would love to know if you all have any suggestions on the type of wood wax I need.
Here are a couple of before and after photos…
I wanted to give the cupboard an aged, worn, appearance.
I made sure when painting it that some of the black did show through in areas.
I also gave it a light sanding once everything was dry.
I am pleased with how it turned out.
The white paint does help brighten up the dark corner.
Here are a few more photos of the cupboard…
And just because I love them, here’s a photo of my small collection of early blue and white clothing. :)
The other thing I have been working on is the wooden house my Mom made for Christmas.
I almost have the exterior finished.
All I need to do is add the wood shingles to the roof, just waiting on payday, then Hobby Lobby here I come. :)
Here is a Before of the house….
And now an After…
*Not the best photos.
I promise to take better ones when it is completely finished and put in its permanent spot.
I decided to add little wooden legs to the bottom of the house.
I found these at Home Depot for a couple of dollars each and knew they would look great.
They really set the house off.
It is coming along pretty good. I am excited to see it with the wood shingle roofing.
Hurry up Friday!! Hehee!
Mom did a pretty awesome job!
Especially since this was the first one she had ever created and she did it all out of her head with no pattern.
I will treasure it always!
Well, It has been a long and very busy day for me.
Work was NuTs today!!
I am exhausted and heading off to bed early tonight.
Yep, my pillow is calling my name.
Thanks so much for stopping by to visit with me.
Until Next Time…
Take Care and Prim Filled Blessings To You All,
