Checking Off My Checklist: Project #2

Can you believe it? Here we are already checking off #2! How exciting is this?

I will admit – I’m a little proud of myself. Not that it was a difficult project by any means. The ones we put off the longest often aren’t.

I’d like to say it was a tricky one because I had to find something that was extremely hard to find. Maybe some vintage or antique item that needed to be matched or a reproduction replacement found. Unfortunately that would be a lie.

All I needed was paint and a paintbrush.

I already had both.

Remember the original list Emily and I shared with you on our blog post 5 On Friday: Our 5 Most Nagging Unfinished Projects ?

You might recall this sweet looking specimen from that post. Yup!

Let’s just say I suddenly got an urge for an open cabinet, removed the doors, primed the inside and there it sat.

Time for that to be a thing of the past.

I know, right? What a difference 2 coats of paint makes?

Yup, I’d be ashamed of myself if I wasn’t so proud of myself right now 😀

It’s fairly empty right now because I’m enjoying just styling it slowly with specific items as they feel right for the space and mostly this is for my ironstone.

Perhaps I should confess now that I have a habit of using my ironstone in random places around my home as part of my decor so sometimes this cabinet has a lot of empty places.

And then there is the lesson I’m trying to teach my kids that you don’t get things unless you have a spot for them so I kind of needed an empty spot so I can seriously collect more ironstone.

See what I did there? And you thought I was just doing some spring cleaning?

Okay before I share all my tricks at once, let’s go see what Emily got to check off her list this week!

      Thanks Emily! It’s nice to finally have it looking like it was supposed to long ago . All my own fault, I know. Especially since I have some major changes coming to my kitchen in the near future!
