To keep you up to date on my camper progress, I did primer on the ceiling and the counter tops. There are 6 separate small counters throughout the whole camper!
I have sanded just the door and drawer fronts of all the cabinets, 40 in total! So far I have put the PolyShades on just the kitchen. Still have the living room, bathroom and bedroom to go yet. The ones that are done look GOOD!
I painted the bathroom which is so small and has so many places to cut in that I got a cramp in my hand!
I had some tweed look curtain panels that I bought several years ago for $5 a pair and decided to make a shower curtain out of one panel. I added a valance to it from leftover fabric I had when I made the camper curtains for the livingroom and kitchen last year. (Still working on my photography skills!)
The remaining panels are being hemmed for the bedroom. I also made a pillow from what I cut off of the bottom of the panels. I was thinking of putting a big button in the middle of band. Maybe some simple trim around the band? What do you think?
Back to work now!
Here are some outdoor snapshots I took last month!
I finally found the time (and money) to get my flower pots planted!! We don't have the money to buy ready made hanging pots so I do my own every year! This year I decided to do the hanging plants with petunias, wizard jade and sweet potato vine!
The wishing well has snap dragons and some vinca vine. I hope the vine will hang down pretty on the wishing well! I see the wishing well needs a desperate coat of stain, too!
I also hung the humming bird feeder out and they are going crazy for that sugar mixture! You can barely see him sneaking a drink in this picture!!
Some pretty impatiens and begonias! I tried to keep them where they get limited amounts of sun!
As you can tell, here at the front steps of our porch, our red cedar wood is in desperate need of some staining! That is my project after our vacation in June! Here are some pictures of the pots on the steps anyway! Just ignore the sorry looking wood!!
Don't you just LOVE these two frogs??? Everyone says it reminds them of my honey and I before we had kids! I lived in Texas for awhile as a teenager and my favorite thing to do was go to the beach and lay out in the sun! We have pictures of my honey and I laying at the beach under the umbrella and we were quite thin at that time!!! Oh, memories...
Over here on the side of the house, I worked all day digging up the soil and turning it over to get rid of the weeds and hopefully give the roots room to grow! As you can see, all we need now is some MULCH!! Another honey doo item on the list! We can get one yard of mulch for $25 but we just need more TIME!!
You can also tell that our home is lived in and used by all of us! There is a path from our dog Shadow, an arrow target for my honey and boys to practice their archery and lots of powerwashing to be done on the house. That's okay, if I waited until it was perfect, I would never post ANYTHING!
