Trash To Treasure

I know I've only been posting on weekends, but this seems to be the only time I get anything done crafting wise. I also seem to be jumping from one project and room to another before the first one is done. Hmmmm... I wonder where my daughter gets her ADHD? LOL

No my kitchen isn't completely done, but I'll show you the new parts. Remember my dough box island??? Here is the finished darkened and waxed one. I haven't really decorated it yet because I want some pantry cakes or sugar cones first. I used a flash and it looks brighter than what it is. I am working on measurements for those who asked.

The next new addition is what I'll call my noodle board. We found an already stained board from some piece of furniture at the antique store for $4.00. We sanded and Steve cut and made this for me today. OK then Steve re stained it and I waxed it. I LOVE it. Again not decorated, ut I did make some fly screens that I plan on using. It seems as though I keep getting pushed out as we keep doing these projects. He seems to actually enjoy it now.

Last Monday I get a picture message from Steve. Plus a few others, but those are later projects. hehe The picture doesn't show it, but the woods don't match. It was a different top with the base. When I first saw the picture I thought the base was red, but no it was a wood tone.

I text him back "Where are you?" His reply an antique shop. He never used to go to antique shops mind you. He says you think $10.00 is too much. I'm like no. He says OK. Well he came home spending $50.00, but can't tell you what else he bought. So after some sanding and painting and staining this is the new table. At first Steve thought we should've painted the top too. I said no way. Oh yea I just threw something on it. I just brought it upstairs from the workshop/garage. LOL.

Tomorrow I'll show you the new shabby chic redo I did for my daughter's room. I have to wait for Steve to wake up to get the before pictures from his phone. LOL. I'm not really into shabby chic, but my daughter isn't into primitive either. So I tried to compromise.
