Central Park Gardens Part 1

What a hot day today! I've been staying inside the A/C most of the day, how about you?

Last week hubby and I visited our daughter. She lives about an hour away north west of us and we took a walk through a Biblical garden and a flower garden. Today I would like to share some pictures that I took of these lovely gardens. I took several pictures on my cell phone, so bare with me.

The Quiet Corner

Saturday my husband and I decided to take a trip to

We like to visit there when we just need to get away and have some time to relax. It is a place, "out in the boonies," about an hour and 45 minutes north of our home.

My Kitchen Makeover

Hello and thanks for stopping by. I know that a lot of people have shared their kitchen makeovers and now, I want to share mine. I think I might have shared some of this makeover on my old blog, but wanted to share it again here.

After watching a lot of HGTV, I thought that my kitchen looked out-dated and I was ready for a change. It's not completely done, but I'm going to share it anyway.

Entryway Stand Redo

Hello! Hope you all are having a nice week so far. I'm having some trouble with fatigue. I just can't seem to get enough sleep. I'm so tired all the time. Maybe, the 4th of July holiday, family get-together had something to do with this. Hope I can get some energy soon. I just haven't felt like doing much of anything this week.

I decided to share this Small Entryway Stand that I did a makeover on a while back. It was a small night stand that my hubby used when he was a boy. It had so many holes and scratches on it that I had to fill in. I asked him if he and his brothers shot bee bees at it with their bee bee guns and he said that they threw their darts at it. Well, that explains all those little holes that I had to fill in. Ha!


Before


 
I usually just kept our Bibles and special books in the stand.

And telephone books were kept in the drawer. I couldn't ever make out what the label inside the drawer said.


 
This was the decor that I had above the stand. I have had these mirrors for so many years. I know, they are so out-dated. Time for something different. 

 

Our house is divided by a chimney that we cannot use. When you walk in the front door, this is the first thing you see. To the left of the stand are two doors. The one on the left goes down into our basement. The door, straight back, goes into our laundry room/bathroom. To the right of the stand is part of our living room. Someday, if we ever get our house the way I want it to look, I just might share a home tour with all of you. 

Anyway, I painted the stand with Heirloom Traditions (A La Mode) Chalk type paint.
 

After



I placed some burlap fabric to the back of the stand at the top and a small window of flowers sits on the top shelf. I removed the handle on the drawer and spray painted it with gold spray paint.
 

On the bottom shelf, I placed a basket that I had around the house.

 

 

On top, I placed a unique pitcher and bowl. 


 

Inside the drawer, I placed some music, scrapbook paper that I had on hand.


 

This was a fun project and the stand looks so much better, don't you think? 

What projects are you working on this week? I would love to see your work.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Please follow my blog via email so you won't miss a post!
I would love to see your comments.

Welcome to the weekend of Independence Day! Happy Birthday, America! Land of the Free! Do you have special plans for the 4th of July? We will be having a family celebration at my sister-in-law's and I hope you all have a safe and fun Holiday!

I didn't do much decorating this year for this special holiday. I made a few patriotic crafts that I found in blog land, and just put them all together on my entertainment center. So, I thought I would share those with you tonight.


 
I took a salsa jar, modge podge, sponge brush, small American flag and a tea light candle.

Idea Box Link Party #17



Hello and welcome to Idea Box link party #17!

I can't believe it is July already! I'm so ready for some hot weather, aren't you?

It was, once again, so hard to figure out who to choose for my features. I chose 4 of them this time to make up for only choosing two last week as I was running out of time. Thank you to all of you for sharing your projects and please come back and share again next week!
