Yes, I am finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel on this little kitchen project I started!
I am hoping this will be the final week and we can be done. You know how it is, you start a project thinking it will take a week or two.
Here are a few shots of what we’ve gotten accomplished so far.
Surprisingly, this home had an old wall phone left behind. Lucky for me Tim had bought me this beauty for Valentine’s Day many moons ago.
I had an old shutter I’ve been carrying around for many years. And also tin leftover from an old back splash.
This might look like an easy project but it took me hours to get this hung. I had to get the phone matched perfectly with the innards of the phone box.
This was the old one. I bet you haven’t seen one of these in a while.
For twenty dollars Tim installed this for my counter back splash.
Here it is with just the primer coat on it.
To be honest I am liking this sort of pickled look and I’m thinking of leaving it this way.
After all I can always come back and give it another coat of paint if I decide I don’t like it after all.
This is by far my most favourite piece in the kitchen.
It is one of the many item my Dad gifted me with.
After he retired he spent many hours in his woodworking shop building all of his children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren handmade gifts.
I can’t even begin to list all of the items he had made over all of the year!
I love it that I can walk into any room of our house and find something that was made from Dad’s own hands.
I’ve really missed visiting all of you!
Hopefully after this week I can make time for blogging again.
BTW, are you getting that cool front where you live?
It was 36F here yesterday morning and 48F yesterday afternoon.
Unbelievable for almost the end of July!
And nothing but rain, rain ,rain.
I’m afraid I’m losing hope for reaping much from my little garden.
How are your gardens doing?
I bet you’re already eating tomatoes while mine are only an inch in diameter as of yet!
Tomorrow is a day of rest so I’m going to pop over and see how you’re all doing.
I hope you’re getting sunshine….
