And here's the midway after:
It's now painted a taupe and just waiting on the gorgeous black counter top. And here's our little supervisor who made sure we got it done correctly.
We also finished the craft room and I got it all unpacked, put away and even had time to get the guest room done. Whew it's no wonder that I'm exhausted but it's so worth it. Just look at these pictures and imagine just how big my smile is when I look in that room...ahem closet but I'm still thrilled with it. It's kinda hard to get pictures because it is a small area but here's my favorite space.
Not sure if you can tell but I glued vintage yardsticks on the shelf edges and I've been collecting them for years just never quite sure what I was gonna do with them. As soon as the shelves went up the light bulb went off that this was why. There are ones from AR, TN, GA and even IN including one from Grandmother Harris' home that I've drug around for 27 years never quite sure what to do with it.
Grocery store chip rack to use as my inspiration wall, repo French drying rack to use as a ribbon holder and lots of jars both old and new to hold everything and the best part I only bought the shelves because I already owned all the other stuff. Damn I have a lot of stuff STILL after all this purging.
Now here's the guest bedroom so we are officially open for business. Quick everybody pack your suitcases and come visit us!
That was our Thanksgiving weekend so what did you do?
