Watchya Working on Wednesday

I have been pretty busy the last couple days, but have had to do alot of my stuff inside.  These warm hot, muggy temperatures just won’t go away!  I am pretty excited for the weekend to hurry up and get here because it is suppose to be 79 degrees on Saturday.  Oh, I will hopefully be able to get outside, enjoy the cooler temps and hopefully get some much needed crafting done.

Here are some things I have been working on today and I thought I should definitely share them with you.  So, sit back and enjoy a nice cold glass of ice water or in Janene’s language (a Diet Dr. Pepper) and take a look at these pictures.  I am really happy with these items and how they turned out.  If you don’t recall…. this is a medicine cabinet/cupboard that I purchased at my local GW store.  It was dirty and needed some prim lover’s attention and I personally thought it had great potential.  So, here are the make-over pictures of the before and after.

BEFORE               AFTER

So, what do you ladies think?  I wanted to do away with the metal hinges, but just gave them a fresh coat of black paint and decided to go with the wood knob.  Don’t you think it looks better?  If you look at the paint that I used… it kinda gave it a different look which I am pretty happy with.  At first I wasn’t sure if I would like it, but after staring at it for sometime…. well, I think I love it.  Now, I just need to find the perfect home for it.  Speaking of perfect homes – that leads me to this picture.  These are all items that I have finished and still need to hang up, so as you can see, I am rather busy!


Hope you enjoyed the pictures. 

Until Next Time ~ Lisa

Love the cupboard makeover, Lisa! I have the perfect spot for it - MY house!! lol
I almost missed that firkin with the legs on it that I got at the antique store! It was up on that landing and had stuff piled on top of it. I didn't see it while I was up there, but saw it later from down below! It looks much better after taking the legs and the eagle off!! Now I just need to prim them up!
Can't wait for cooler temps this weekend, although we're suppose to get heavy rain tomorrow :0(

Take care my friend,

Another great prim re-do my friend!! Love the color. The heat is miserable here in S.C. too. In the high 90's and humidity is awful. Take care, stay cool and keep us informed on the make-overs and tweaking!! Sherrie

Love the cupboard! Everything looks great! Finding homes for new stuff can be a challenge, but fun!

Have a great day!

Lisa, What a great makeover! I really like the knob replacement, much more prim. Dont' worry about the hinges, they seem to fade into the background with the prim paint and new knob. Can't wait to see it displayed. ~Ann
