here in Iowa, but I'm gonna make it a whole
lot warmer...I made me a quicky fireplace...
would be a great fireplace surround...
I also had two leaves from an old table in storage...
so I just stuck them behind the mantel, then
washed them with a tan paint wash to match the mantel.
the mantel to connect the buffet top to the table leaves.
I also had this old wood stove out in my shop
that I've been wanting to turn into a candle stand...
a bit of heat out of the flew hole,
plus gives that glow of a fire that we all love
in the winter...using repurposed junk and
a bit of ingenuity, I got me some ambiance...

is the constant moving of stuff around.
If something has been in the shop for too long,
I either take it to another location
or I bring it home...
I'm speaking of the old buffet topper
and the oak chest.
But I never worry about it,
I just fit it in until it's time to move it out
or paint it, but some pieces I
just haven't the heart to paint.
These both have been stripped and
no finish applied...raw wood,
I especially love that in my home!
AND I can always use another surface
to set more crap on...
to put it bluntly..............
it sucks to be me...lol!

The newly painted 'loo',
ya gotta love it and
interior totally painted white,
but I have more work up my sleeve...
old hippie spread cut up for curtains on
windows and the loo, hung from
plain ol' wire...
and a small desk to hold books, paper etc...
not that I'll be using the stove and sink,
but at least it's a start...
need to make some covers for the cushions
and blue ticking for curtains and
spare sofa pillows.
Gotta get the wiring checked out,
then I'm ready to role into
THE GREAT UNKNOWN!

well I finally do...and now comes
the fun part...decorating it...
then trying to decide what fabric to replace
it with...leopard maybe...
but fortunately in my kinda work, 'distressed'
gives new meaning to 'restoring'...
can you guess where I'm going with it...
the walls will be white with a rustic wash
over them...Scratchy makes herself at home!
a vintage chair over the top with a hole
in the seat for a more comfortable, relaxed
feeling...it's all about the comfort...right!
you get me up there and you might not
get me down...looks like great storage huh!
It's over the kitchen table.
