It is time once again for Leslies's (My Country Home) Watcha working on Wednesday. I'm thinking I need to rename it Watcha NEED to Work on Wednesday! I have soooo many things I need to get done. It just keeps piling up on me. I go and buy fabric or craft stuff with high hopes of doing something with it, but then I don't. Then I have this lady I work with who used to own a fabric store and she closed it but still has tons of stuff for sewing. She keeps giving me stuff. Some I will probably never use, but most of the fabric I will one way or another. Oh wait... I'm getting off track here. So what I'vebeen working on. Well, you all saw my fall crafts on Monday that is part and of course that closet door I've been working on. Are you sick of hearing about it yet. I finally went to the hardware store and bought stain. I thought I would give gel stain a try. I bought Chestnut for the color.
Not sure I like how it is turning out. I sanded the best I could, but there is so many bad spots in the wood and wood putty that I don't know what to do. It is so hard to get a good pic for you to see as the door is huge and in my garage so they don't come out too well. I already have 2 coats on it I guess I'll put a third one on it today if I have time.
Hey Rondell... you asked me how I had the stitchery hung on my cabinet door. Here's a pic to show you. I should have used a flat tack so you don't see it, but I don't have any. I figured there was no way I was going to hammer a nail in the wood, so this would make a tiny hole where no one would see it when I decide to change. The little pieces of wood were added later by someone and weren't original. I wish I knew what originally what was there though. Was it glass or tin? You all should see the punched tin sides on this cabinet. That is why I bought it. OH yeah... duh hey Mary quit having a blonde moment go take a picture of it. I'll include that tomorrow. LOL.
Oh my word I just had a heart attack. I forgot and just clicked out of this post without saving and thought AACCCKKK it's all gone. My hard work all gone in on single click. I forgot it automatically saves and updates. Shewwwww!!!! I was not going to retype everything if it didn't. Well, off to get my daughter ready to go canoeing with her Dad and my son and I are going to go somewhere too. It is suppose to be 91 degrees today so we'll have to do it this AM. Til tomorrow.
Oh before I forget is anyone else having problems with certain functions on blogger working. I'm wondering if it is my puter or what. My blog roll disappeared yesterday and now today and post a picture in my sidebar. It keeps telling me invlaid image URL. I've posted every other picture the same way. GRRRRR....
