BeFoRe & AfTeRs aNd tHe BiG ReVeaL!!!!!

Well its time to show you the big reveal and some thrift store make overs..the aboves came from a thrift store...
Remember these bowls from Tuesday?
Here are the afters!!!
Okay now for the big reveal!! this is what this area used to look like...Okay Wait for it...wait....:)
This is how it looked on Monday when Hubby hung it on the wall for me..I just had to start putting things in it right away...I lowered the red hanging rusty nail shelf down..
This was on tuesday after thrifting...
This was yesterday...I just kept adding to it..I painted the pineapples that you can get a dime a dozen..I love how they turned out.:) all the wooden utensils that I got on tuesday plus some that I had..
Okay here it is!!! in all its glory!!! I couldn't be more thrilled with how this came out...I just finished up the wooden bowls this morning...and couldn't wait to put them in here..I used a pottery utensil holder to hold the wooden items and it is hidden behind the sugar sack towels..
I hung the primitives gathering sign above was just sitting on my hutch in the dining room...but it needed to go here...
Now it balances the big t.v. set in here and looks complete..I love how it looks now.. Thank you again Carol for this wonderful giveaway..I am pleased as punch and I can sit and stare at it from the couch...will probably hang stockings off of it come winter.:) might have to change it out completely for christmas..will see.. I just had to gals from church come over for some inspiration today...I gave them some wonderful magazines so they can get further inspired...Now I gotta painting days are done for a bit now..:) Have a wonderful thursday everyone..and thanks as always for your nice comments and saying hi..I am giddy when I get I know most of you are as well.;)
