What a great weekend I had. I cleaned the house and I still had time to work on some of my projects. I received a beautiful fruit bowl I ordered from Minnie Kitchen last week. She does beautiful work- you can find her etsy store here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/MinnieKitchen?ref=pr_shop_more Since I wanted to be able to see the fruit easily I decided to make a kitchen counter to put the fruit bowl on. I took the bottom of a Michael's hutch and added some decorative beads to the legs. I pried the doors off the cabinet and added a new top made out of skinny sticks. I'm going to eventually make baskets to put on the shelves.
Years ago I started painting a mural on my staircase of two angels in the middle of swirling fall leaves. The angels I drew and cut out of plywood- but I've never finished painting them. This weekend I took the angels down off the wall to finish painting them and finish the mural on the staircase once and for all. Here's a picture of them where I stopped working on them. I've got some fresh inspiration for these angels so I'll be trying to work on them more in the next few weeks.
