Why is it that everytime I think I'm done, I realize just how much more I have to do?!
When we finished MOST of the kitchen, we still had to do the bench.
I ordered this fabric, but it was way too busy for my pretty calm kitchen.
So I found something better...
(off a baby bedding website, mind you).
It arrived, I stapled my little heart out for two days (first with the fabric then with the old lady plastic covers).
I love it.
My new mugs came too. Big, beautiful, glass mugs. Made in the US too!
(you are probably wondering, why are her glasses right side up? Doesn't she realize that they will collect dust?)
Um, yes. They will, but its better than the poison off-gassing that the shelves are doing from the WaterLox we used to seal them and make them match the countertops. The can and website claim that the Waterlox is no longer poison after 30 days. We haven't hit that mark yet and if we turn the glasses upside down they STINK when you drink out of them. Hopefully it will stop off-gassing soon. Would have gone with straight Tung Oil if we had to do it again.
Oh - our floating fish?
We bought them algae pellets like the pet store told us (they also told us that they were destined to early death if they had "swim bladder").
One of them is now floating forever in fishy heaven.
So, looking at my pretty kitchen I am aching to do the floors now. And, re-do the table.
Anyone know HOW to redo the table? We bought butcherblock for it, but I'm concerned about having that much wood in the kitchen...
