Hey, happy Friday! I'm joining Five On Friday at Love Made My Home.
The Interior Home Store had a clearance sale last weekend. I bought two bunches of faux ivy (1) and stuck them in with the bunny until I find a better home. I have a brown thumb, so this faux stuff looks healthier than anything I could grow.
The silver bunny (2) was only $5...marked down from $29...and there was two of them. I only bought one and have kicked myself all week.
Behind the bunny is a little cabinet (3) I've been torturing on and off for a while. Today I decided it needed a bit of knocking and pinching with a hammer and some pliers.
It had a little doo-dad front that made it looked old and dated, but not in a good way! Here it is with that piece removed. It was like an exercise program pulling the wire staple thingys out that held the little wood piece in.
It needs more work and paint. Maybe I'll add some extra shelves and use it for a spice rack. I'm waiting for it to tell me what it wants to be. So far, it isn't very talkative, but a few more whacks with the hammer might loosen its tongue...
Since we're talking about painting anyway, let's talk paint fails. In an effort to not paint everything white, I painted this old bookcase (4) a linen color. It really just fades right into the wall color doesn't it?
And (5) I rounded up all my paint and painting supplies (brushes, waxes, stencils) and used a mish-mash of baskets to temporarily sort it all out.
Once I get the stuff all separated, I'll trade them out for matching baskets to clean up the look.
Well, that's Five On Friday. We've been having tornado warnings for several days. Hoping it passes soon. Stay safe.
Thanks for dropping in!
