This Week’s Projects

All this week I have been watching my sweet baby Reed , who has been under the weather , and even though he is two months shy of it , has already hit the terrible twos. So it has been fun.

The good thing is he loves Sesame Street . He will sit or stand in his playpen for long periods of time watching it . which gives Nanaw a break , and time to get a few things done .

Here are a couple of things I was able to get done this week.

Remember awhile back when I showed you this ?


I found this unfinished cabinet door I had laying around and these hooks.


This is what I came up with…


Sorry this is not staged , I haven’t figured out where I’m going to put it yet . I want to put it in my bathroom , but have to do some rearranging to have room for it


Can’t you see some fluffy towels on that top shelf thing ? Now that I am looking at it here , I am thinking it would look good with a graphic on that bottom panel above the hooks. What do you think ?

I painted it with homemade chalk paint , 1 cup paint , 2 tbls. un-sanded grout .

I used Behr’s Premium Plus flat paint in Cotton Whisper . There were so many pretty white shades I had a hard time making up my mind . ( I went with the name I liked the best ).

I used the same color to paint this keepsake box…


I’m going to add this to my Etsy shop today.


Linking with Miss Mustard Seed for Furniture Feature Friday


  1. oh that's fantastic!!! I LOVE it, can't wait to see where you put it and how you accessories it... Great job...

  2. I came very close to buying that identical shelf for the bathroom, but around here, they cost about $150. and John was not too happy!
