You know what renovation work we got done this week?
We had just enough time to make a mess in the new kitchen before we headed for the hills of Tennessee in front of that nasty storm.
I did have plenty of time to think and plan how I want things to go in that room though.
One thing I nailed down (not literally) was my layout for the cast iron pieces I want to hang on the wall.
My mom collected these at yard sales over time ($5 for a big Lodge skillet!!!) and I LOVE them! I bought the leafy spoon rests from one of my favorite stores on the Covington square, Revolution.
I’m going to sand and poly these boards (below) and put some hooks on them to hang my display. It’s going to go in that big blank space on the wall shown in the top picture of this post.
I can’t wait to see how it turns out!
Also, while I was in Tennessee I remembered that I had bought the top of a hutch (or is that the hutch itself? I dunno.) at a yard sale for $10 a long time ago and I didn’t know where it was. Duke assured me it was in the studio, aka “bro cave”.
I really want to use it in the kitchen but I have to wait for IV to be around so we can get the countertop situated to see if it will work.
Other than that I did some storm damage assessment around the house and everything was okay.
IV’s makeshift tool shed took the worst hit but that wasn’t surprising:
I did love that these flowers had bloomed while I was gone:
I had to look them up, but it’s called a Spider Lily or sometimes Hurricane Lily. I thought the second name was more appropriate. A nice little bright spot after a very dark week.
Praise the Lord.
