Monday was a very busy day as I told you. Steve stayed busy all day with my projects. First, my shelving units. You all will be very surprised that I painted them the same color as my walls. I figure that way the treasures I put on the shelves will pop against that color and won't make the room seem smaller either. I saw this same thing in one of Judy Condon's books that someone painted theirs this way.
I originally wanted them to be open shelves, but Steve won out and we added bead board backs to give it sturdiness and so that things wouldn't fall behind because we had to leave it away from the wall because the baseboard sticks out a little. Of course I'm not gonna show you how they're decorated yet... ok cuz I don't have it done!!! LOL I keep changing my mind.
I am loving the peg rack...
Now on to my new idea for the window. I originally wanted a peg shelf above my window to hang my curtains. Then I got to thinking no I want something different... SOOOOOOOO... This is the new idea Steve built me.
I wanted a blanket crane!!!!!! AND I still have a little space above to put my smalls. The crane actually does pivot out. The next thing Steve wants is shutters below.
Then to my surprise another project I didn't know about until it was my turn to paint. He didn't know what color I wanted. Steve made this apothecary looking box so that I can hide my sewing machine in it. He says I need to keep my machine upstairs so that I can get to it easier than hauling it up from the basement every time I want to use it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!!!! So much for the peg rack for now. LOL
Warning: This box is not this light. It is a dark grey. Must be the lighting.
Tomorrow I am actually off (yes typing this from work) and plan to work in the dining room. So hopefully I will have pics by Monday.
