It’s been a busy week and somewhat of a mixed bag, so I felt like I needed to push into a to-do list today. Productivity always acts like a pick-me-up. So, I cleaned and did laundry, worked on the shelves for the craigslist cabinet in the office, did some painting in the studio, worked on e-mail, etc. I even shampooed the traffic path on the carpet in the living room. I was on a roll.
And, I finally took some time to put the dining room back together again…
It was nice to get all of that ironstone and transferware back on the shelves in the primitive hutch.
And now, I can give some thought to how I want to finish off this room.
I’m considering built-ins for the wall with the hutch on it now or perhaps even painting a tonal mural! I’m just going to linger in the doorway now and then, until it comes to me.
Until then, I have plenty to keep me occupied!
I applied Hemp Oil to the outside of the craigslist cabinet and, as I mentioned earlier, started working on the shelves. They were painted a bright orange! I decided I wanted them wood to contrast the (soon-to-be) painted interior, so I started to strip a few of them this morning and that idea was a no-go. Some of the shelves were original, some weren’t. Some had layers of paint under the orange and others didn’t. It was just a mess and it wasn’t going to be worth the effort, since the shelves weren’t matching or all original.
So, they are just going to get painted in MMSMP Farmhouse White, just like the interior. Since the shelves are bright orange and a bit of a mess, I decided to prime them first, so I did the priming today. I hope to start painting over the weekend or early next week.
I am just loving my “new” office and I can’t wait to get everything finished…
