I’ve spent the week researching and pricing out my kitchen spiff up; man, stuff is expensive! Now I’m thinking I may have to scale back my project. Another thought occurred to me too, why don’t I just refresh the kitchen and use the money that I would have spent on a vacation! Somewhere warm, with free flowing cocktails, tropical breezes, lots of eye candy and a vast ocean. I haven’t had a holiday in 3 years.
In the meantime, I’ve been working on a few projects, but first I wanted to share some flowers with you.
A girl that I was very close to as a child asked if I would make a balloon flower bouquet for her daughters 16th birthday today. Yep, happy to. The bucket that they are in is a waste paper basket from the dollar store.
The amaryllis that I got from my best friend last year bloomed again this year! This is a miracle for me as I usually kill all plants.
I mixed up some diy chalk paint using a free sample pot that I picked up at the recycle centre. The colour is Benjamin Moore’s Mount Saint Anne which is very similar to the ASCP robins egg. I painted yet another cutlery chest, added some gold to the edges and gave it a couple coats of wax.
I also recovered a storage ottoman that will sit at the built in desk, in the kitchen. I will be fitting it with a hanging file folder frame, which will provide some needed storage.
Last but not least, I’m working on painting a three piece set of tables that I bought a couple of months ago. There is this end table, a sofa table and a coffee table, all three pieces were only $55. I plan on selling it and buying a new built in microwave for my kitchen update, pretty clever huh? lol
I know! Lots going on but I’m doing it all at my leisure, no pressure. Have a great weekend.
