Good Morning everyone!! I thought Iwould share Kimmys kitchen again as most of you haven't seen it..I love getting inspiration from my best friend as we have a lot in common and she loves to use things in unusual ways..and that white mailbox on the end with the towels hanging from it is one of them..I must find one of those..too cool..she just recently purchased the brown shelf and it fits so nicely in her nook there..she has some old brick from a wall that was taken down..but it is the old fireplace and they can't take it down without major work involved..so she covered using shutter doors etc..she also has an old antique door that she painted with chalk board paint..great message center..The first photo above are some chicken lamps that I had in my dining room for a long time..but got those new old cabinets and didn't have the room..so I sold them to her (at my sale this year)..and they look so good in her cottage kitchen..she collects chickens too..;)
she made this cute vase out of jello molds and a sifter..kind of stacked them all together and then added the flowers to them..love this idea..she also added a cabinet where here old dishwasher used to be..and added the spoon and fork for the handles..love that idea too..:)
I thought I would show you the table..this is what it looked like when we purchased it..then on monday I stained it the color below..it was okay..but I wanted something bolder..
so I painted it the black stain instead and I am in love...the top will be that rich rust orangy red color and the chairs a nice black..I am so loving the way it is turning out..Hubby got the top glued, screwed and sanded yesterday...so now onto the painting part of it..hoping to start that today...I am having fits with the chairs though..I sanded them and the stain still won't take..so am going to get an oil based black paint and going that route..
Okay last but not least..i got my little ghost yesterday in the mail from Mona..she lives just across the pond from me..I love him and put him on my cabinet for the timebeing..he smells wonderful too..;) what did you use to make him smelll soooo good..and I got a cute pumpkin card to go with it..:) Thank you again Mona for drawing my name..:)
Well I am off to get more supplies and get that table finished..I hope you all have a wonderful wednesday..thanks for stopping by and saying hi..I love getting your comments and always love hearing from you..they truly make my day.:)
