Anyhow, I found Rust-Oleum's new paint & primer in one, and that it comes in my fave color for, well, almost everything, oil-rubbed bronze. I grabbed a can of that, and that new can design rocks, thanks Rust-Oleum! Then this morning I painted the 70's era light fixture bar, the old 70's era switch plates, and voila, nice, shiny, and looking good. Can't wait to get them hung back up now!
Then I found a beadboard style towel hook on the clearance rack, and it was 70% off, so I bought that last night too. It's white, and I'm going to tape off the beadboard with Frog Tape, remove the hooks, tape off the ball ends, and the frame & hooks are getting treated to my new paint as well. After that it's going up to hold our towels. I've decided with us having to move in a couple years, that I am not willing to risk my amazing aqua birdhooks that I scored from Luckett's Store. I absolutely adore those hooks, so I'm saving them up for our next home.
In other news, I've decided that the Lumber Liquidators did me a huge personal favor by putting that store in locally. I just found hand-scraped, dark colored vinyl wood plank flooring for $.79 per square foot, which boils down to just under $145 to do the entire kitchen & dining area. Woo hoo baby, oh yeah! It has a 50 yr. warranty too, which, okay, won't really benefit me, but since my youngest sister-inlaw is moving in here after we move out (long, long, dramatic tale for another time), I figured it is a good bargain that can be done for me, and should suit her as well. It really looks like wood, and if you want to bend over & touch it, it's textured too. Yippee!
Light bar after painting. The before was hideous, seriously.
Fake oak center with a faux brass frame. Ugh. Hideous!
In other news, this gorgeous baby girl has turned 1 year old! My precious & amazing
granddaughter, Sora Riley. Adore & love do not even begin to cover it!
And now a photo storm of the various flowers, etc. I've been working on the past 2 years:
