Change has come

I feel like I am always apologizes for not keeping up here and even at home. With so many projects I can't seem to get it together or just finish one. So I decided to get to one at a time and put everything on else on hold until I finish the one I started. So here I am with my latest I WILL FINISH THIS project. A few years back we purchased three book cases and put them together with trim. The counter stools I recovered with a drop cloth that I hand painted and finally I found those cute herb crates that The lettered cottage showed off a LONG time ago so here are pictures of my to do and FINISH list

So I decided to paint my cabinets the uppers Navajo white and the lowers a turquoise aged with a dark espresso I purchased this fabric to make new cushions for my stools, and to cover the back of the bookcases and to make a bench cover after I paint them. I think I might go with a dark espresso

Genisis makes me so happy

I went nuts when it came down to buying a new grill. The last grill we had was huge and expensive. It only lasted 5 years it had so many hidden screws that completely rusted out. We tried to replace parts and it was more cost effective to buy new.When looking at new grills I fell in love with a grill by kitchen aide the name is KITCHEN AIDE for goodness sakes it has to be wonderful, so I purchased it immediately then I came home and went back on line and looked up the reviews. Only to be a sad girl the reviews were horrible and I found out Kichen Aide does NOT make grills they leased out there name( for what you ask... MONEY)Can you believe? So after another round of who makes the best grill under $5,000.00 (almost)the winner is WEBER

Hang it up!

Well after begging and pleading my husband finally hung it up. All the other televisions are hung on the walls in our home ,but there UGLY wires still are in view. Not the family room though they are completely out of sight. YIPPEE! I will show the whole project after I finish the painting. The way we hid the wires was with a product we purchased from DATACOMM it was so,so easy and you don't need to relocate your electric outlet, it only makes it look like you did.
