For the past few days I have been working on refinishing a bread box that I purchased from Goodwill last week. I didn't get a before picture, but it looked brand new. It is a Kamenstein bread box that had a natural wood finish. I'm sure you've all seen these. I paid $5.00 for it. I thought that was a bargain. Well I got out my trusty can of black spray paint and started working on it outside. It would have been finished much sooner, but when you get home from work late and with the windy spring days we've been having lately it took more time to accomplish. It's finally finished and I have it on my kitchen counter waiting to use.
I wish I had one of those spray can adapters that Janene showed us this week.)
If you read my sister Deb's blog today, she mentioned how she cannot work on just one project at a time. She always has several projects going at once. Well I guess it's a family trait, because I am the same way. I have so many things going on at once, sometimes I can't focus on what I should be doing next. I still have my six kitchen chairs to finish (the table is done and waiting for the matching chairs.) I purchased my fabric to reupholster the seats but won't be able to do that until I finish painting them.
I made a prairie bonnet and hung it on my shaker peg board shelf today. One more empty peg to hang something from. What will I do next..........?
One last thing I worked on today. I was trying to make some homemade soap. I think I need alot more practice. If anyone has a special soap recipe they want to share, please let me know. This is a picture of some lavendar soap I made using a basic hand-milled soap recipe. I'm waiting for it to set up in the molds before I unmold them.
The other soap is a pomegranate scented glycerine soap made in one of the molds that I used to make pantry cakes. They were the perfect soap size pans.
