A LITTLE WINTER WHITE MAKEOVER FOR THE BAKING CENTER AND A CRAFTED SIGN FOR THE SOUP MAKER IN ME!

Hi and welcome! I am on a "white" rampage. Loving all the furniture brightness. As you may recall I bought a preowned entertainment center and made it my baking /storage center. I bought it a green color with a distressed finish.


COFFEE TABLE & END TABLE GET A WINTER MAKEOVER

Welcome to you! Hope that everyone is keeping warm. Here in the deep south we are having some chilly weather and some bad winds. I have to keep going out doors to gather all the tree scraps that keep falling oh how I love palm trees ......not truth is I don't really like them at all.

My last post I shared some winter makeover for my very old cabinet. I have given the coffee table and end table a lick of the same "Vanilla Ice " paint that I used on the cabinet.

 Unlike my recent cabinet redo I did decide to distress both of these pieces. I used a scraper to distress instead of sandpaper this works better for me. I added some new glass pulls. I love this end table because it has storage on the bottom, great for magazines.
The coffee table has been her and there like the last place was the lodge room porch. I replaced it with a wicker one for the porch. Love the pineapple legs !
The brown blind behind the couch is actually a bamboo carpet that I stained darker. I hung it…

OLD TIRED CUPBOARD GETS A WHITE WINTER BRIGHT LICK OF PAINT!

Hi there, welcome to Sweet Tea N' Salty Air where the oranges are at the peak of the season and the weather is a bit chilly at times but mostly superbly perfect. I was taking a long hard look at the oldest of oldest darkly painted cupboard and decided it was time for a brighter change. The paint was the best from Home Depot but came from the Opps! counter and that means no name so I like to call it Vanilla Sugar cookie!
 I have shared this old girl a few times , she has a special story to her.....when my son was a teen he used to clean out sheds for extra money.......in his journey he came across this cupboard road side ready for trash pick up, needless to say She was coming home with me. So we cramed it into the car and off I went. notice I said I ? my boy waited at his grams for me to come back and get him because there was no way I was leaving that piece behind. I decided on a complete paintover with no distressing, so what do you think?


 Here she is now, all prettied up! I add…

FROM ENTERTAINMENT CENTER TO KITCHEN BAKING CENTER

Image
Welcome and Happy New Year to you!  I have been a busy bee around here.....packing away Christmas decorations and rearranging , fixing etc... Im sure most can relate. Saying bye to Christmas is bittersweet , hate to see it all go but kind of happy to get things cleaned and putting out some new stuff such as this entertainment center. I was gifted a gift card and I have been on the search for an entertainment center that I could turn in to a baking center. After all my new Kitchen Aid mixer deserves a place to call its own seeing that I will be working it to its beaters. The entertainment center would have to be constructed of all wood and the counter would have to be my height. Finally I came across the perfect one!

We decided to decorate the center for the winter season with a strand of winter berries and white lights also some snowflakes. The mixer fits well and the center also came with an electrical power strip so everything could be plugged  in.
