Here are more of our 'helping with a move'
projects in Kim's new townhouse in Texas.
I thought it would be a good idea to repurpose
this dresser from a previous bedroom
and use it as a buffet/sofa table. It's
a great space for napkins and placemats.
I brought a bamboo table runner and topped
it with a tiered stand that holds two of
her Grandmother's rose teacups.
I also brought these two iron and wood etageres.
Here they are in my hallway decorated for Christmas.
Larry was able to take them apart and we
crammed them into our van along with other
loot (lamps, table linens, tools, etc).
Now, that left this big 'ol blank space
in my house. What to do?
While Larry was still taking the etageres
apart I couldn't resist sketching possibilities
for a 'new' project. Luckily Larry builds
better than I sketch.
Something to plan for January.
Here's the eating area before.
After. I think the etageres work
perfectly with her dining set.
We were able to reuse Kim's valances
from the previous house.
It took me while to figure out how to attach
the rod at the corner.
We also found a good spot for the plate rack.
The view into the kitchen before.
Ready for a cake.
Black granite counters and stainless sink
in the kitchen. I added a valance on a tension
rod between the cabinets.
The valance is black with stainless buttons.
A lucky find for $1 in a thrift shop.
I brought a salvaged cabinet door to use as
a chalkboard. The stainless curved handle
is a good place for a piece of chalk.
