Making And Crafts – Current Works In Progress

Where does the time go?  I have NO idea.  But, here I am again using it up surfing the internet.  ;o)  Actually, I just wanted to post a sneak peak at what has been keeping me from the blog.  (I know you would never guess it, but I have a goal of at least two posts a week and would prefer to post daily.  But, I just can’t make that happen, keep the house in order, the Little Guy occupied and projects going along at any kind of pace if I am behind this screen all the time.  One day…(insert dreamy music here)). 

It seems like I have been on a constant path toward making my kitchen bearable without a complete overhaul.  These old chairs just received a lovely paint job to continue to ease that process along.


I hope to have them in place by this weekend.  Yeah!  I will also be posting more about how the kitchen originally looked, and how I am trying to make what we got work for us right now.

This guy was a bargain buy at the local Salvation Army and as soon as I can get him whipped into shape he will be nestled in between the two smaller windows in our dining room to serve as a bar.


Right now I am working on creating cabinet doors from the old drawer fronts, along with cleaning up the innards, so to speak.  I only spent about 30 minutes working on him yesterday and he is almost unrecognizable, but in a good way.  I think (and hope!) that I can do everything I want to do with this piece of furniture and not spend any money on lumber.  So far, I have only bought some stain, spray paint and spray acrylic for the top coating.  I am in this thing for less than $75.00 bucks!  Can’t wait to see how it turns out.

On top of these revamping projects I have also been cooking up a storm and reworking some containers to serve other, more decorative purposes around this place.  I can’t wait to share more soon, so I better get moving.  Only about 45 minutes left of the Little Guy’s nap time!  Should have enough time to demo something else, right?
