more home renos

While my husband is finishing our basement bathroom I thought I would see what was under the blue paint on my counter top, I was very pleased to find this creamy Arborite underneath. So after 8 hours of stripping and scraping paint, 2 cans of paint stripper, I have a new counter top in a much more neutral color. This will tide me over until we can afford to redo the kitchen altogether :)

Catching Up

So I have been trying to catch up with blog posts now that some things have slowed down for me. As I said in my last blog post, I have been creating things just not having time to post anything. As some of you know from reading my posts in March, I was accepted on the http://flamingoscraps.blogspot.com/ guest design team and it has been tons of fun creating things for their blog this July. You can see the things I've been working on through the links below, also check out the rest of their blog and other DT members posts, they are absolutely wonderful!

Busy Summer

Wow , so far this summer has been really busy. I have been creating but haven't had the time to post. We also purchased our home that we live in so we have been doing some small reno projects. This was my first project, done from scratch all by myself ( granted I wouldn't let a real carpenter inspect it but its good enough for me).

Storage room/Pantry


During the process:

I drilled all these holes myself. My arm was ready to fall off!

Cleaned out room with boards ready to assemble:

First part of assembly, no they are not not crooked, just the camera angle. I used a level and measuring tape:)

Shelves, yay!!

Final result, minus the painting of the shelves (I'll do that when I'm feeling ambitious again)
