I did do some crafting today on two projects but before I get to those…here are my kitchen counters♥
We did get the sink in too, the guys from Lowes were here about noon and right on time! I still can’t believe the 1983 stainless steel sink is gone and in place I have a black one! Yay!!!
The cupboard doors still need to be put back on and the stove was brought back in on a dolly with me pushing while Stush pulled it up the two steps from the garage now my neck is bothering me, oh well, all for a beautiful kitchen right?
This is right when they finished!
I think this is a better picture of the sink, I took the pictures right at dusk except for the one above.
While they were busy in the kitchen I tackled the projects, this one I’d been working on for at least two weeks but with working I just didn’t have the time, today I was off so I got it done. It’s a round suitcase that I bought at Tuesday Mornings and I got one coat on before I remembered to take a picture.
Here it is after being painted with a dark beige paint then sanded a lot and around the edges too, I like also how it showed the pattern I painted over. I used watered down black paint on top and quickly wiped it off then tinted some clear wax with dark brown paint and applied that all over. I didn’t sand the black stripe because it was dry but not all the way if you know what I mean, so I may do that but not right away.
I have it on top of the vintage suitcase on my stepback cupboard, do you see the black and white picture above the one I hung yesterday?
Well, I thought I’d try my hand at abstract painting! lol I already had the frame and got the idea from JoAnn from Double-Wide in the Sky so when I read her post I thought I can do that! My dad painted in oils… so I said a prayer and let the brush do it’s thing. I could turn it the other way, but this way it at least looks like a sad fish. lol
If you stand back it really doesn’t look to bad if I do say so myself!
If you stand even farther back it almost looks like I bought it that way! Ha!
The long, wooden paddle you see there on the stool was used to stir laundry, my BIL gave me that and I was thinking of hanging it there but wasn’t sure. See the black paint on my couch cushions? I can only blame myself I must have got some on the hammer and laid it there, so after I was done off came the cushion covers into the washing machine they went. You should have seen both of us trying to get them back on after they were done that was a hoot!
Thanks as always for stopping by and your sweet comments!
