This past week has been quite interesting. The week ended with a great report from Cameron’s pre-school teacher. He had a wonderful week and was well behaved (whew). I am not sure I can take many more bad days (lol). We celebrated my Dad’s 65th Birthday on Saturday along with my nieces Birthday. Talk about alot of cake and ice cream. Sunday was interesting seeing as though we were rear-ended coming out of the parking lot at the grocery store. We got hit pretty good, but luckily we were all ok. Just a little whiplash which lead to soreness and stiffness the day after. The kid that ended up hitting us stood there and laughed about it and then admitted to us that he was busy changing the radio station. Gotta love idiots that can’t pay attention to what is going on in front of them while driving. Our van got scratched up pretty good on the bumper, but the police can’t do anything since it was on private property. I had never heard of such a thing….. what a stupid law. So…… that was our weekend. Definitely not as fun as what the APP gals had at The Walker Homestead. Talk about jealous……. I so wish I could have been there.
I myself have been busy with other things. For all of you prim loving stay at home Mom’s….. don’t you just love thinking about what you can do next with your home? Well, I have been doing just that. I have been wanting to find a way to display some if not all of my crocks. So…… I thought that the cubby that is supposed to be used for our TV. would be a great little area to use for my crocks. Here is a picture of what it looked like before I started working on it.
I knew that if I wanted to display my crocks in it then I would need and want for them to stand out once they were in there. So, I went looking for some paint to use in this cubby. I absolutely LOVE the color of that barn red shutter so I went looking for something of that color. I was lucky enough to find it at Wal-Mart. It is made by Kilz and it is called Barn Board. Here is the color.
Don’t you just love the color? I knew it would be beautiful. It is definitely a dark color, but it allows my crocks to stand out which is exactly what I wanted. Here is a picture of it after it was painted.
Don’t you love the way it turned out? Then it was time to get some “L” brackets and some wood. I decided that staining my wood shelves would be the best bet and I painted the “L” brackets the same color as the wall. I didn’t want them to stand out like a sore thumb. This is how it all turned out.
So, what do you think? Does it appear to be missing something? Do you like the crocks displayed the way they are on the bottom? If you notice with the pictures above….. there are 3 crocks on the bottom that are pulled forward. Here is a picture of them pushed back. What do you like better?
I have a candle behind the middle crock on the bottom to bring some light into that cubby. I wish I had a spot light or some sort of light shining down of them, but there is no electricity running through there except the plug outlets. What is a girl to do that knows not a single thing about electricity?!? Of course this is not all of my crocks so I thought I would share some more with you and how I have them displayed. Are you ready for the tour?
Why don’t you share your collection? I would love to see it. Until Next Time ~ enjoy your day . Blessings, Lisa
