In the midst of my many makeovers I managed to get another chair painted. Remember the one I painted blue? Which I love how it turned out.
I adore how the blue turned out. I have several of these chairs I use for various things so decided this one needed to be white for my kitchen.
This poor chair was weather WEARY so it took a good two coats on it. But the white gave it some life. It was a dingy yellow by the time I got around to painting it.
My Herb Box redo looked so nice sitting in my freshly painted white chair.
Decided to make a small burlap wreath to add to my chair.
I am happy with this cutie sitting in the corner of my kitchen. Serves as two purposes too. One is for holding my herbs and whatever else I want to put in the chair and should I need an extra chair for someone to sit in, out comes the box of herbs.
Remember the vintage corner hutch I bought at an antique store?
That girl took some work! I took the hinges off of the door and went to three local places to buy new hinges. I needed white or at least silver. Well, NO LUCK! Matter of fact the guy at Ace Hardware said, "How old are these hinges? I said, "Well, at the sound of your voice they must be pretty old.". He said that he not seen old hinges like that in a long time. I wanted them that day so I meant I would not be whipped and I did not want to drive another 30 miles to see if I could find some hinges to match the old ones. Off to Walmart I went to buy me some paint with primer in it and that would be good on metal.
I boiled those things for about 30 minutes in vinegar and Dawn dish detergent. Let them cool. Sanded the mess out of them. Cleaned them up and gave each side two coats of spray paint made for metal. YES, I would have hinges on my door that day!
I had already purchased this sweet little knob at Lowe's earlier for my door on hutch.
I am proud to say that little vintage corner hutch is complete. I have only one thing on the hutch at this point but isn't that just the cutest clock scale ever? I spotted this Kirkland's and I am pretty sure I heard it whispering...
"Take me home, take me home, take me home".
New hardware has been purchased and installed. That was an all day job!
I kept this sweet thing one day last week and we had a tea party, played dress up, put on makeup, played outside, eat Popsicle's and chased butterflies. Such a fun day with her.
My oldest daughter will be celebrating her birthday on Thursday so we celebrated her yesterday. Each of my daughters, soninloves and grands get to pick the meal and dessert they choose for their birthday celebration. She choose fried fish, hush puppies and cheese grits. YUM! She wanted a Gooey Brownie Pie for her dessert. Oh my goodness! NOPE, cannot leave any at my house because I will eat it all! It was so good. I used a spring form pan to bake it in and it turned out perfect. Recipe can be found on Pinterest. I have it saved under desserts if you just want to pop over to my page and save it.
My girl is such a sweet servant of God and a wonderful prayer warrior.
Please join me in wishing my oldest daughter Kristy a happy birthday.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
