So, about three weeks ago, I started my winter break. A family friend posed the question to Momma D., “So, what is Lyndsey going to get into over break this time??”
The answer is simple…absolutely nothing.
Well, my version of nothing. I still managed to tackle a fairly decent To Do list. I started with finally putting some attention into the craft room closet. It was in desperate need of some repair work and a coat of paint.
Being the frugal person I am, I totally thought I had a gallon of white paint leftover from something. I was so excited! I’ll finish it up on that silly closet! So, I get all of the repair work done and I am ready to paint. I dig out the gallon and crack it open ready to go….it’s a solid block of paint. I guess leaving it in the garage to freeze wasn’t a good idea.
So, remember back when I tried painting the hallway the first time and that horrible jade/teal weird color. Yep, you guessed it!
After much patching, painting and some new shelves….I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. Obviously, it could always be better. But this is a definite improvement.
The other big project I have been working on over the last couple of months is a kitchen island.
Mind you, this idea stemmed from wanting a dishwasher and this seemed to be the easiest solution. Back in July, I set up the ironing board with one of my doors laying across it to see if I liked the “concept”.
My dad officially thought I lost my mind.
Seven months later, I have got a pretty good thing going. It’s still not done, knowing that I need to finish trimming it out and finish the “storage” side. But I can’t lie, I am in love.
The best part is, remember this piece of wood?
That came from this scary basement?
Well, officially….that piece of wood has become my kitchen island. This is the progress so far.
Once it is completely done with trim and everything, I hope to write a blog post about just this project. But I was too excited to not share the progress thus far!
Ok friends, stay warm out there!
Peace out peeps.
