We will always be excited at the birth of a new animal on the farm!
The Gentle Giant made the table with the myrtle on it for me. It is something I will always treasure... He made it for a Christmas gift also, on a twist-tie budget like this kitchen remodel. I was so surprised as we had promised not to buy gifts for each other this past year. He made it all out of wood that we had and our son helped him.I used left over paint and what I did have to buy only cost $5- for mi stint cans... I always look at the mi stint racks of paint first... I took the cupboard doors off and sewed curtains for the fronts with rick-rack on the bottom. I figure I can have all different fabrics to mix it up a bit for the seasons etc. I painted the cupboards white and distressed them. I put these funky, eclectic cabinet knobs on that were only about .50c a piece! I was so pleased when I tore off the ugly back splash and 1970's counter top that the wood already was cool and distressed and then I just applied poly on top of it.
