Happy Monday everyone! I know i just posted yesterday but I wanted to share what I worked on last night. It was a cloudy day all day and in the evening it started to spit some rain drops so I thought it was a good time to do a project.
First things first. I got a quick email from Lisa! She said she is feeling a lot better and if a few tests go o.k. she MAY be coming home today!! Wouldn't that be wonderful!! We can all pray that she will be home soon! We miss her in blog land! She will have a lot of catching up to do! :)
Here is my most recent project....When I went to the antique mall on Saturday I picked up these antique strainers. I think the people at the antique mall thought I had an obsession with strainers.....! I bought 4 of them! But they had no idea what I had in mind for these little treasures! Here they are before~
And here they are after~
I painted, sanded and distressed some wooden knobs attached them to the top and made them into flyscreens! I LOVE the little ones...just the right size for one little pantry cake! I have seen in primitive kitchens where they hang a collection of these on the wall...I love the look of that but I am bummed that I don't have a wall big enough to display them that way. So now I have a total of 8 flyscreens....one that is antique...3 that are home made out of modern day strainers...and now four that have been transformed from antique strainers! I am definitely running out of space! But I am having so much fun!!
I hope you all have a wonderful day today! Rainy and gloomy here again....oh well another great day to work on some more projects! Oh yea...and I guess it's a good day to work on laundry too!...Haha! Until next time. Take care. ~Sarah~
