You know the drill: sanding, painting,staining, and sanding some more:
Not bad for $3 and $1 worth of paint, huh?
I tucked this in the corner of the dining area. I put my new pegboard and new sign from Pam here as well.
I used to have a dish hutch and a desk here, but I didn't feel like it was a pleasant dining experience to ask someone to move if you needed to get around the table.-- so they are going to find new homes.
To be honest, looking back, I can't believe that things were so crowded before. While I loved the peices, I really need to listen to my friends who are willing to remind me that "less is more" hahaha
Then I put a few things on the other wall of the dining area:
I am still considering if I should stain these giant boards or not.
Now I have to remove everything from the kitchen and dining area and start scraping linoleum so we can get some tile laid. We also bought a refrigerator that all of our groceries can fit it....lol...( I know, I spend so much time trying to make a decision that I make NO decision-- so we finally just went with a great deal). so I can't wait until this is all finished!! In the meantime, I hope nobody comes to visit.... the stove and fridge will be parked in the front room, and things will be crazy!!! How do you deal with that? Dear friends.... you can't come in? lol!!
