There are weekends that are so productive that it blows your mind. This past one was just that. It all started when my mom and dad showed up to stay with our littles while my husband and I ran off to the big city. Yep, it was a productive weekend and I didn't even have to be here!! Clancey anxiously awaited the arrival of Mema and Papa......
...helped Papa bring in all the tools.
And my dad got right to work.
Remember this lonely corner in the kitchen?
Remember how it looked a few months ago?
Then I found a couple sad cabinets at the ReStore.
This one was so sad they sold it for $5. That's pretty sad.
With the magic of paint, trim and new hardware.....we have this!
And then Dad produced THIS!!!!! Shelves all the way to the ceiling.
How awesome is that? Yep, shall I mention again how much my dad ROCKS?!
Look at that beautiful detail!!! Love the curvy shelf feet. The wood wasn't quite "cured" yet....so I will have a nice little painting project waiting for me when the kiddos go back to school in the fall. :-) I will paint it with the same enamel paint that is on the cabinets down below.
THEN, Dad whipped this curtain rod up....that's been sitting around for a jillion years. Leveling....Dad is GREAT at leveling. I, on the otherhand have a deficiency in this area....so I leave the leveling to him. Ignore the unplanted tomato plants on the lovely folding table, the Cozy Coupe, the roller coaster and my $1 chair that needs a slipcover....admire the lovely curtain rod and curtain panels....and my sweet baby boy. ;-) Focus. Focus on the window. hehehe
THEN, as if all that wasn't enough.....Dad installed our bedroom ceiling fan! We've had bare wires hanging in that spot for oh.....about.....two years. Ever since our other fan started making an annoying noise and went away. My husband is very thankful, as his body temperature reaches approximately that of the space shuttle launch, while he sleeps.
THANK YOU DAD!!!!!!! And MOM for taking care of EVERYTHING else while Dad worked!!!
