Good Morning friends!!! I have been busy crafting and finally furniture rearranging. I have a lot to share today.
Sheesh where should I start ?!?
Steve and I added another member to the family. NO not that a kind. ;) lol. We have another cabinet. Somehow I think cabinets are like rabbits because they just keep multiplying. Anyway, since we had a really successful weekend at the booth we treated ourselves.
Before... Obviously I'm not fond of white...
After a base coat of black Steve dry brushed red on. I told him I wanted to own a red cabinet and this would be perfect. He sanded some of the white chipped paint off first so it has a wonderful texture to it that you can't see in this picture.
I had to wait a few days for the paint to cure before decorating. But just as I could stand it anymore... I started in...
That being said I have moved some of my other furniture for the new pie safe and now for the corner cabinet. I know I told you I was going to put my fabric in the pie safe well, uhhh, I decided that it needed to be in my kitchen. Yep, I took the buttery down and moved it to my dining room.
The pie safe... now...
I've started on the buttery, but I'm still fiddling around with that. The fabric is on the lower shelves. What I want to do is make a curtain to cover the shelves that have my fabric on them. I will be decorating the top two shelves and covering the rest.
I'm still working on the dining room. As it stands I have a cupboard completely empty and don't know what I want to put in it. Crazy I know. I'm thinking quilts will go in it, but I'm not sure yet.
All the rearranging has been going on in between crafting. Since Saturday was so beautiful and sunny I got to work on things that needed to be stained. I normally use coffee, but I tried out using walnut hulls. It worked pretty well and the items stayed soft after staining them.
I already had to make a few more pairs of the red stockings as my Facebook friends cleaned me out. lol.
LOVE how these turned out. Only one pair of these left. Haven't had time to make anymore of these yet.
I also had time to get a special order apron and bonnet set order done. I have about 2-3 more special orders for these (not this color) to get done.
Then my BFF Rose's scarecrow she wanted is almost done...He still needs his hat and stuffing around his neck put on. I will finish him up today.
Other than that I'm trying to work on Christmas stuff as well as some more special orders.
OHHHHHH forgot to show you the special order chimney cupboards Steve built for a booth customer. We took them to her yesterday and she showed us her primlicious home. She had a beautiful home and she had to point out everything she has bought from us. LOL. She says she's our best customer. From the looks I believe it. She put one on each side of her fireplace. Now she wants Steve to build a linen closet for her bathroom. We may also have a special order fireplace board to do also. We are waiting on a definite answer.
I'm sorry, but I need to run. I have some crafting to do and a trip to the post office in order again. I went yesterday, but had more sales and need to go again today. I'm am LOVING it!!!! Thanks to everyone who has placed an order!!! I work the weekend, but I will need to get some things done to a point that I can finish them at work. My cross stitch will go on the back burner for now. Oh well, it can wait. Have a great day everyone!!!
