3rd day of Cabinets

Actually I lost count on what day it is. I am slowly getting it done. I am just so sick of painting. I'm getting them done in sections. Thats probably just prolonging it but I wanted to get one section done so I could be excited for the outcome and maybe be more motivated to get it done.
So I got this section done and I think it looks just lovely! But I still have a long ways to go.

Here is the other side of my kitchen. All the drawers are out and they still need to be painted and sanded. This is taking a lot of perseverance. I really just want to move on with the rest of my life!
So I moved on to lining the shelves. I have to go to work tomorrow 8-5 and I wont be able to work on this kitchen again until Saturday so my plan is to just paint the drawer next weekend. I got these shelf liners at T.J Max.

I put the drawers back so it wouldn't be so chaotic during the work week. Next weekend I'm just going to paint them.

This is a pix of the kitchen island. This is another project in itself!! Its in pretty bad shape.

I'm going to put up some baseboard and spruce it up a bit.  But I'm slowly getting there! Right now I just have to focus on the cabinets. I'll have another post in a couple days!

You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

This is a must have in the summer heat I had a summer baby, born in July!  And I wanted her to have privacy when out in public but there was no way I was going to drape a blanket over her so as a sewer I came up with a solution! Moms are problem solvers!

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
