I feel like it’s just a broken record around here. Nothing exciting going on, but still working on things. I spent most of the weekend painting kitchen cabinets at MeMum and BigDaddy’s. We finished up Phase2 this weekend. Each phase takes three days — two to paint and 1 to put back together. (And by days, I don’t mean full days — we have extra time to play a game of cards or run to the store or whatever.)
I figure we have about 4 phases, which means we’re about half way through. They’re going from this old little-bit-scruffy white with brass knobs,
to a softer white with knobs that are a better match to the hinges. We did discuss swapping out hinges and then decided that was just too much work for all those cabinets. I love the new handles on the drawers – very fun.
You can also see a glimpse of the pretty new corian countertops that MeMum picked out. She wants a very neutral palate and I think it will be really pretty. The kitchen will then be accessorized in blue. She has some of those old Bing and Grondahl (I think?) Mother’s Day plates that she’s been hauling around for years and now she’ll finally have a pretty place to hang them.
Meanwhile, back on the ranch, I spent a little time organizing my flours and sugars into canisters. I was tired of all the flour and sugar bags sitting on the shelves.
And there has been a little quilting. It’s been very SLOW though.
Matching all those little points is fussy work. And they’re rarely right on the money. I’m about half way through with these blocks too.
I hope you had a productive weekend and that you’re staying cool if you’re in a hot place this month.
