My latest project

Hi everyone. Just wanted to share a couple pictures of my latest project. My DH made this mini stove board. I guess it's really not a stove board since I have it displayed on my counter so I am going to change the name to counter board. We just looked at the larger stove boards and made a scaled down version. I painted it khaki tan and went over it with dark walnut stain to make it look old of course. This is before I got it decorated..........


and this is after.............
My Dh and I have been working on another project for the past couple weeks. Since our son moved out and went to school I have been dying to get in his room and paint it. It was painted a blue color that really didn't go with the rest of the house. We painted it two different colors and put up a chair rail and I have to say it looks so much better. A while back I bought a new quilt and a much smaller bed knowing that I was either going to have the computer room in there or my craft room. So I was really feeling kind of bad for taking over his room because I knew he would still be coming home every now and then. We talked and he had no problem with us moving the computer room in there,so that's what we did. Now I have a room all to myself for crafting and scrap booking. YIPPPEEEE! I am so happy with it. Yesterday I went and bought some baskets and decorations and have to say it turned out so nice. I am not completely done with it yet so I am going to have to wait until it's completely done before I post pics :(sorry! Same thing goes for the computer room. I am waiting on curtains and still have to decide what I want on the wall. Not really much else going on other than waiting for spring to get here. Does anyone else feel like hibernating in winter? I just feel like curling up in a ball under the covers and not coming out until the weather changes. It's almost the end of January so really only about a couple more months of this. I really don't like wishing my life away. My mom would always tell me to not say that because it goes so fast anyway. I really didn't know what she was talking about at the time. Now that I am older, I know exactly what she means. I just keep myself busy and try not to think about it. Hope everyone is having a good week so far. Hope it's filled with lots of accomplishments or fun. If you can do both that's even better.
Until next time,
~Sherri~

I really love your board and you have it decked out so prim! Yes, it's quite a long winter, but we have it quite mild this week so far-I love winter for stitching in the evenings by the fire! Sad? Have a good week, ~Shazy x

It looks great Sherri! They were originally called dough boards or noodles boards no maer what size they were since they were used for rolling out dough and noodles so you can also call it one of those.

WOOHOO on your own room! It's one of the perks of our kids moving on! Looking forward to seeing it all primmed up!

Oh, I love your counter board! And you have decorated it so nicely!
My Mama used to say that too, about wishing my life away. Now I'd give anything to have a little more time with her. I never understood it back then either. Waiting ahs always been ahrd for me. now I try to be a little more patient.
Have a great week!
