In my last post I showed you my latest project. Well , I am excited to tell you that it is now done! Although it only took me a day to paint, I had to wait for some label holders to come in. I am so thrilled at how it turned out!!! As some of you have guessed, yes, it is an old counter with 20 drawers!
I have wanted something like this for so long, but they are just so darn expensive. Just goes to show you that if you are patient, it will come. lol
Don and I were in an antique shop and I saw it and couldn't stop looking at it. I'd go up a few more spaces and then come right back to it. Crazy right? Finally I couldn't stand myself anymore and had to ask if the seller was firm on his price. Guess what, he wasn't!!!!!!! Score! So I took Don by the hand, lead him to it and said "go ahead, talk me out of buying this". He is really good at that;) But this time it didn't work and before I knew it, it was being loaded in the truck:) :)
Next stop was Walmart for something Don needed. I headed straight for the paint dept. and picked up some 'Vanilla' paint and some brushes. It is really a pretty shade of white. All the way home I envisioned it in the kitchen in the perfect spot and what I would keep inside of it. I will now even be more organized.( I hope;) I am sooooo happy I could dance:)
20 white drawers drying on my farmhouse table.
Dante could hardly contain his excitement.
I put all of the drawers in and added label holders.
And here it is!!!!!
It is in a sunny window and my plants are lovin' it. The kitchen even looks bigger even though this piece replaced a small desk. I love when that happens don't you:)
Some of you may know that I make chandeliers. I hung this one to see if I would like it there. I do, so it will be taken down and repaired.
It is raining today but this wonderful piece adds a bit of sunshine to the room:)
Look at all of this storage!!!
An old wooden box holds some of my favorite plants.
I hope you have enjoyed my little project. It was a lot of fun to do:)
What are you up to?
