I filled the smaller cabinet with folios, and stuffed one to put on the table. Once that was done I made up the rest of the journal kits I had on hand. (Folio and journal kits by Nancy Enge.) My... Continue reading

I filled the rare book cabinet with books that Susan made and sent me and still have a bunch left over for the big book case. The smaller cabinet has shorter shelves so I'm going to have to make most... Continue reading

There is one month to go until the Creatin' Contest deadline. My husband thought it would be a real shame if, after all the work I put in earlier in the year, I didn't enter the contest. I agreed, but... Continue reading

The chairs are close to the same color but they don't match. What's funny is that my husband doesn't like the colors of chairs and I need to paint them, but yet my husband picked the colors for the cabinets. I don't get it either.

The only available wall space is across from the back door. I wish had somewhere more prominent, but I don't...but I have them for my enjoyment, and I'll still see them every day there.

I have finally decided the kitchen can be pronounced done, even though there is a shelf I want to put up to display some antiques that haven't been brought back in from the garage yet. Save Continue reading

And the driveway and sidewalk won't be needle covered, and I won't constantly be picking them up off the entryway floor...

Interesting, but way too scary.

Progress is slow, but it's progress. I'm still doing touch-up painting on the kitchen cupboards, but I got the laundry area done. My husband thought I painted the radiator to match the trim. I said "um, no, I just scrubbed... Continue reading

I'm still working on the kitchen. Most of the touch-up painting is done, but there is a cabinet door I'm not happy with, it needs to be sanded and repainted. I found this picture on my phone today, it was... Continue reading

On new carpet?!? Egad. Thank goodness none of my primer splashed as far as where the vinyl meets the carpet in the corner of the kitchen. Thanks for the good vibes, I'm feeling them. :)

I'm feeling very bummed for me too. :(

The floors are fine, even under the stove where I really had to scrub. My fingers are fine too. The only casualty (so far) was the trash can, but I needed a new one anyway. I didn't sleep well Saturday night, and it took a good part of the day Sunday to come down from the panicked, hours long adrenaline rush. My back is sore and the heels of my hand feel like they should be black and blue, but I survived.

This post should be subtitled: Keli's misadventure. I had plans to finish the kitchen this weekend so that I could show it off this morning in all of its new glory. Saturday morning all I had left to do was... Continue reading

I had thought of putting a strip of wood on the bottom of each panel, but not moulding. I had also thought of putting a rubber sweep at the bottom. I haven't decided yet.
