My Bowl Rack!

Hello everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your weekends! It started out rainy today but turned out to be wonderful! My parents are here! And we are enjoying our time with them so much! My Mom & Dad and I went to a little antique shop together today! That was fun...seeing them see things that they used to have or still do have! Then my Mom and I got away for a little shopping! Came home and ordered out some yummy supper...Grandpa's treat! :) SO much easier to bring food home than to take five kids out to eat!

My Dad got my bowl rack done and I was SO excited ....I went out to the garage after supper and got it all painted, sanded and stained! Then I came in and my hubby and my Dad put the hangers on it! It is literally drying ON the wall!! Haha!! I have wanted one and can't believe I finally have one...and better Dad made it! That makes it a keepsake! This is it before~

And here are the afters~

The bowl on the bottom left belonged to my Aunt Lucille (we called her Aunt Toots, she was such a sweet sweet lady) It is a WONDERFUL old bowl~it says Munising on the bottom. My Mom brought it for me to have! Another keepsake that I will cherish always! Thanks Mom!

I couldn't be happier! I painted it the same way I painted my doughboard!! Thanks Dad!

Here is a close up of my tabletop bench. I changed it up a bit for Spring~

And one more makeover to share. I got this little wall cupboard at the Salvation Army for $4.99! It was a bright mustard before..I showed it in a previous post with some of my other thrifting goodies.

Here is a couple of after photos~

Well that is about it for tonight! It is late...and I better head to bed... Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Until next time. Take care. ~Sarah~
