You know June was a cake walk, in terms of activity (and weather) compared to July! I seem to always forget just how fast the month of July flies by with a flurry of activity each year. I forget about band camp, band parade practices, Gretna Days activities, church VBS activities that we all volunteer for, the 4th and cookouts planned before during and after, and I forget about the sweltering, unending heat. Ugh. I try to stay consistently busy with my work. I mean there are ramp ups right before Prairie Market and the opening of NJ & Co., but if I stay at it consistently it's not too bad. This summer I've also added in a couple of commissioned jobs that I hope to show the results of soon. It's all good, but it's always so HOT, and I want to whine about that for a minute so bare with me! The blog has been neglected, but things are happening here I assure you, and a lot of sweating/glowing/dripping.
So today I have a sweet reveal for you. Late last Spring I stumbled upon a nice Ethan Allen hutch for a reasonable price. I was finally able to sneak it into the line up and complete it a couple of weeks ago.
New hardware always makes a gal happy! I found these sweet little things at Hobby Lobby, though I haven't seen them there since. Bring them back HL please! I love them.
Unfortunately the cute new hardware didn't fit too well on this narrow door frame so I took a couple of older bronze knobs I had in my stash and added some similar red paints then rubbed it back to mimic the metal flowers surrounding the crystal knobs. This photo turned out a bit bright, but they actually match pretty darn well if I say so myself.
Linking up to these fabulous parties:
Praying for a rainy day!
