Awesome Farmhouse Sign

Can you be in love with a sign, lol!!

I love, love, love this sign.

I first saw in on Sweet Pickin's FB page and wanted to make it.

It has taken months and months to start it but a couple of weekends ago I started it and finished it.

It is a HUGE sign.

Want to see it, I thought so, lol.

Rustoleum Glitter Paint Frame Projects

I love this paint!! It is awesome!
If you read my last post here, you know that I won 2 quarts of Glitter paint from Rustoleum.

So far I have only done frames with this paint. And the way this glitter highlights the details is amazing.

It's hard to see the highlights but in person they look fantastic.

Here are some pics to look at. Sorry about the quality, from my phone.

Rustoleum Glitter Paint Frame

I cannot believe how time flies around here! Seriously, it's has been awhile since I posted, I'm so sorry.

That said, I won a couple of quarts of *glitter paint* from Rustoleum! Yay me!!

I will be honest, I am not a big fan when it comes to glitter. I like it but not love it if that makes sense.

With that said, I was thinking of what I would paint with glitter paint when Rustoleum came out with a gold, silver and iridescent glitter paint. I put my name in and came up with a few things to paint.
I won two quarts of the paint.

So do you want to know what I painted and what the glitter paint looks like?
 As I said before, not a fan of glitter paint BUT I love this paint, seriously, LOVE IT!!!

The first is a little frame I cleaned up. I have had this for years and never did anything with it. It's made of a heavy plastic. I used Rustoleum chalk paint on top of it after I cleaned it with a toothbrush and got the dirt and dust off.

Tree-mendous

I cannot believe it peoples......

This year we put up our Christmas Tree Tuesday, Nov. 29 and today we decorated our outdoor tree!!
That is a first in history for me.
AND to top that off.........I have all of the Christmas presents that need to be sent off, wrapped and on the way to the post office tomorrow.
Haha, sorry, so excited that it's done and I have to pinch myself because I still can't believe it!

This year we decided to go with an artificial tree we found at Home depot. Even my husband loved it, who is not a fan of the fake variety, lol.
It is from Martha Stewart Living. See it here. And we got it on sale, which is even better.
I was having my doubts when first opening the box but after working it over I like it.

Kitchen cabinets done!!

Hello Friends,
It has been way to long since I last posted, forgive me!
Since May I have started a real job.
I left off by finishing the back splash for our kitchen. So it took me all these months to finish it. Want to take a look?

WARNING: Picture overload!!

Before. Only the top and back splash have been painted Gray at this time.

LeakSeal by Rust-0leum

Well I am loving my counter tops, even though it was a total hassle! And I am slowly working on painting my cupboards but lack the want to keep going, but I will, lol!

So, I am doing a product trail called LeakSeal with Rust-olem! It's a Flexible Rubber Coating which seals leaks and cracks instantly. It's water-tight and paintable.

We have a basement in our home and it looks basically the same as the upstairs but where the kitchen would be downstairs is just and extended living area.

We have two windows that set just at dirt level. These windows have leaked since we had a contractor put them in 20 some years ago. I have tried a few things over the years but nothing has worked. So they have had nothing around them and I have taken the frame of one window down a long time ago. Our seasons are pretty dry here but this last winter was very wet and we had snow on the ground for about 3 months, which is unheard of here. Anyways, it leaked again, going down the cement wall.

When Rust-oleum  was picking 50 people to sample their product, LeakSeal, I was hoping I would win and get the chance to try it! I did, Yay!! So this is about LeakSeal.

Quick Project

I have a quick and easy project this go around! Even though it's easy, it took me a while to get to it.

A friend of mine gave this door knob to me on my last birthday and I love it but didn't have a place for it until recently. I have been redoing (or rather) repainting my kitchen and had to take things down to do so.

I have quite a bit of old boards laying around and so I married the two, lol.
