My kitchen is slowing coming together. This past weekend I was able to make it to Hobby Lobby to get the knobs for my cabinets. I wasn't sure what to use for the drawers, but my mom had the great idea to use antique spoons and serving pieces. I love the way that they look. 

All cabinets have blue painted ceramic knobs except for the short cabinets above the stove and refrigerator. 

I also finished my pantry screen door this weekend. I found this door in Canton, TX. It fit perfect for the pantry. I replaced the screen and sanded alot of the paint away. I used an old fork as the pull on the door and curled the prongs so they would not be harmful. 

I also added a shelf in the kitchen over the walkway into the living room with shutters. I want to start collecting old kitchen items to display. More pictures to come.

All Coming Together and a Sneak Peak

Things are coming together in our house. It is feeling more like home each day. 
I wanted to share a few pictures today of some things that I have been working on and a before and after for my stepson's room. 

First, I wanted to show you this tray that I made into a chalkboard. I love it and it was so simple to make. 

Remember these old lockers that I bought in Canton...

With a few cans of spray paint, this is what they look like now. A perfect place to store all of Landon's toys.

I also wanted to share with you Landon's curtain for his closet. I removed the old white sliding doors that were originally there, and my mom made this awesome curtain out of drop cloth to be able to hide Landon's TV and clothes behind. Sorry for the poor picture quality. 

And last, here is a sneak peak of something that I have been working on. I am just about finished and I cannot wait to see it all complete.

OMG how long has it been

So the summer has been crazy, and I completely lost track of time.  My family and I recently got back from a family reunion in Yellowstone national park.  What a drive, but so beautiful.  Anyway, I did finish my Easter baskets that i made for all the kids in my family.  I love the way they came out and wanted to share them with you along with a few pics from my recent trip.  Also, tomorrow I am going to an antique auction so i will be sure to post pics of anything I buy.
 I tried to do them all alittle different but the kids loved them.  Sorry not the best pictures and sorry so late.

And here are a few pics from my Yellowstone trip!
This one is a grizzly bear eating an elk.

 Here is a beautiful waterfall in the park, this picture does not do it justice.
 And lastly this is an elk.  It was in the middle of a town in Yellowstone.  We also so tons of basin, deer, and chipmunks.
