Wow what a weekend! I didn't go and do anything special. OK, we went to the fireworks on Saturday night here in town with my uncle who lost his wife a year ago and had no kids. My daughter didn't go with us she decided to go with her Father. We picked a new spot to sit this year. We pulled off the road about 5 minutes from our house and looked out over some farm land. It was the clearest view we've ever had even going downtown. Then another town was having their display too directly behind us. So we a had two for one.
I also have been working on some Christmas crafts. I spent all day yesterday trying to figure out how to make this one thing. I kinda got it, but I need to improve it. As many of you know I don't use other people's patterns if I can help. I like the challenge of trying to figure it out on my own. Plus I have never seen a pattern for this anyway. I will show you in time what I'm working on because I don't reveal it until I love it. I also rearranged my living room/dining room AGAIN! So, I will post pics this week of that. My hubby also told me the porch decorations looked cluttered so I had to clean and rearrange there too. Ok so I lied I'm going to add a pic of what I was working on... small crocks that I'm going to make into ornaments for the Christmas tree. I am also working on bigger crocks also. These are made out of fabric. I know you're saying to yourself fabric??? why fabric??? when you can have the real thing. To be honest... don't know except for I can paint them anyway I choose. See the second picture...
Now on with the step back. I should save this til Wednesday, but I finished painting my foyer woodwork and the little wall leading from my foyer to my living room. and moved my cupboard in. It fits perfectly.
This is looking in my front door. Never mind the open bathroom door.
Closer view of the top part.
Closer view of the bottom... Well, I LOVE the color on the woodwork. It really looks drab and kinda like army camo. Hey, why does my dog always want in my pictures. I had to tell him to get out from in front of the cupboard to take this one.
I haven't painted the doors yet. I got to looking and thought maybe it would be too much. So.......... I asked hubby to take the door down and I stripped the paint off. I'll show you that project on Wednesday. This is what I spent most of Friday doing. I just got a sander last night from my BIL so I will sand tomorrow as I have to work today and tonight. It is beautiful under all that paint. Of course a little beat up, but once I decided on a stain and do that it'll look awesome. Hubby says it's my project to do as I please.
