Can you guess what this project is about?
Yes I am going to add nailhead trim to it (5 years in the making) told ya it was an old one.
This is the back of the chair.
Hello out there, I know I have so many unfinished projects. Why then am I starting another one. Well truth be told this one is one of the oldest I just thought it was time.This chair I purchased way back when, It started out life as a brown chair with green fabric(sorry no before pictures) I wanted it to use at my desk in the master bedroom, It's still in the master but now only as a side chair. I painted and faux finished it and put the fabrics that match the master ( will talk about in another post). I soon hope to have the nailhead trim on. well be back with the after pictures.
Thank you for stopping by.

This cabinet was part of a peninsula that was original to the house well I cut it off (12) years ago
and this is what was left, I stuck a plant to hide it but it was still ugly as seen here.
Thanks for stopping by make sure you come to see how this turns out.....
Well this is how the kitchen kitchen looked after the laminate counter had been taken off.
Yes the top of my beloved dish washer ( those of us with kids) you know what i am talking about.Here she is the granite (Giallo ornamental) I wanted more gold but depending on the light the color changes . I would say this is more olive browns and hint of gold, which I guess in the end worked out perfect for me , the colors in the rest of the house are those colors. It has been 3 days and now i really love it . The truth of it is the hubby made me stick with this one , I was going back and forth for two weeks trying to decide, but I guess in the end he was right (let's not tell him ) you know about him being right.
Here is a close up.Here you can see i still need to pick out a backsplash get a hood over the cooktop ( will show that later), then decide on weather or not to change color of cabinets.
Thank you to all of my new followers I promise it will get better so stay on this ride with me
