Bicker while you work ! ♪
The last time I showed you the steel kitchen unit which we saved from the mudroom when renovating, I only showed the top surface - I hadn't painted the " body " of it yet - which was white and very rusted.
I've since painted it with some Rustoleum paint that I had on hand - the color is a little boring but I didn't want to wait to get to the store ( next year it'll probably go a fun turquoise or lime green ! )
In the meantime I added lots of color to make up for the drab
You can see the first post on this HERE
The water proof drawer is the perfect place to store an extra outdoor table cloth and other items
I even had an Ikea chopping board on hand that covers the entire area - making it an outdoor butcher block if needed !
John says - Ok - that's getting ridiculous now
Suzan says - What?
John says - A spice rack - outside - ridiculous
( just ignore him - he knows not what he says - don't all kitchen's have spice racks - besides where would we put the steak spice ? )
I know I've said it before but I'm so thrilled this unit didn't end up in the dumpster - I'm so in love with this little piece of history and that I could actually put it to good use is even more of a bonus
A place to make Pesto ! ( or Pina Colada's for that matter )
We're having our first " Friend's " party on the 19th and I haven't even invited anyone yet - pitiful -
I've been too busy trying to fix up the back yard so that we can all............................
Why the dining room of course -
John says - I'm curious - are you going to create bedrooms and a bathroom out here too?
Suzan says - Well a bedroom would just be silly - but a bathroom? Genius !
John says - You're insane.......................
Suzan says - And now that I think of it - I'd love a daybed tucked in the far corner - with maybe a little end
table beside it filled with books and magazines - so yes - I may just create a bedroom
John says - Maybe we could rent the back yard out to a student
here's a sneak peak of the dining room - or as John calls it " where we eat " ( it's not quite finished )
We worked outside the whole day on this - it was a beautiful hot ( but breezy ) perfect day to bicker
while we worked ! ( I can't whistle - so bickering works for me just fine )
I'll be trying to finish the dining area up this weekend so I should be able to show it on Monday
In the meantime I'm so happy I can tick the kitchen off my list...........
AND all items were on hand so it cost nothing to create :)
An outdoor living room will have to wait for next year - but for now I gotta say - I feel happy! I feel like
singing! I feel like dancing ! Hey Macarena !!! ( my favorite dance - a nerd, I know ) I did it with the little ones last week ..................
( and then she walks back in the house and her shoulders immediately slump down and she sheds a tear or two at how much still has to be done INSIDE ) Hey Crapperena !
But - for now - another job bites the dust ♪♪
And it may just be my favorite furniture makeover yet :)
Hope everyone has an entire weekend filled with sunshine ♥
