Island Preview

I am an expert procrastinator.  I am the type of person that is late to parties because i am still wrapping gifts, even though i’ve known your birthday was coming for months.  But this time it’s not my fault.  I can’t help that i have had this old table top in my possession for almost two years (yikes) and haven’t done anything to it. 

Okay….so maybe I should have been a little more proactive.  But there is good news on the horizon!  I am finally going to be taking a woodworking class here in Nashville that will give me access to power tools!  I can’t wait to turn this into my new Kitchen Island!!!

With the help of a wood shop I plan on building and attaching legs and a bottom shelf to this table top.  My kitchen NEEDS this island.  The original mint paint color goes perfectly with my house.  The class doesn’t start for a couple of months, so in the meantime I am planning on carefully re-finishing just the top without ruining the awesome dirty mint color on the sides. 

Check back to see the progress and finished island… and to make sure I make it out of the wood shop in one piece! :)


Happy Mother's Day!

I am so grateful for everything that my mom has done for me and given to me.  She has taught me to have good posture (when i’m not slouching), great manners, to be independent and self-motivated, how to cross stitch, when to keep haggling at a yard sale, to see things for all their creative potential, and all things domestic that i have forgotten along the way (she had to remind me how to boil eggs).  My mother can literally do anything.  She is the best, and has never stopped believing in me and my crazy plans and schemes. 

So to show her how much i love her, i painted her flowers for her sewing room for Mother's Day...

I want her and everyone to know how much i love her and hope that, especially today , she feels extra loved! 
I love you MOM!
-Love, Brittany
