Hope you had a wonderful weekend! We got a few things done around here & actually RESTED on Sunday. Yep, we did. But on SATURDAY, we did not really rest. I did laundry, laundry & some more laundry. I also made some happy surprises. Remember my flea market finds? Well, I washed & wiped everything down AND discovered that the linen, king-size duvet cover is from POTTERY BARN! And I got it for less than $7!! YEEEESSS! Um, I was a little excited. Anywhoo, the sweet little embroidered pillowcases are hand made and have a cute little overlap that hides the end of the pillow. How great is that!?
After ironing for HOURS on Saturday, I wiped down my metal baskets & put them to work. Here they are in their new homes:
Kind of a fuzzy pic, but the larger basket is perfect for holding my favorite magazines and planning binder.
My little basket holds extra t.p. for the 1/2 bath. It needed some steel wool TLC and then I sprayed a clear sealant on it. Not sure if I should have, but we’ll see what happens. Once we put up some shelves, it will sit on a shelf alongside my favorite little sign. I like having it there as a gentle reminder that I am NOT the only one capable of changing out the rolls of toilet paper. The little sign came from a store in Birmingham called Swoozie’s.
Hubby built 3 new drawers that will go in the kitchen eventually. Our bottom cabinets are just funky & these drawers will really help maximize use of the space. Here’s how they look for now, without the fronts:
He’s just so great! They will be painted & have fronts put on them eventually.
I went to Target on Saturday as well. They had these cute chair cushions marked down to $5! They are perfect for these old chairs that will go in the kids’ treehouse.
Yes, I know the chairs need to be painted. Did I mention they were headed to the kids’ treehouse??
There’s more to tell, but this is getting lengthy & I don’t want to
bore you tire your eyes! Have a fabulous day & come back real soon! I’ll leave you with a pic of my oh-so-helpful assistant……
