Projects and More Projects

Greetings Everyone! I would like to thank everyone for the Birthday Wishes and the Blessings left on the passing of my Granddad.  My Birthday was relaxing I made myself a cake lol It started off with the plan of being a lemon curd coconut cake but ended up being a lemon cake with butter cream lemon frosting with coconut and lemon curd in the middle I know a bit much but it was delightful. 

As you can see from the photos below of my tiny Kitchen I am having hardwood flooring installed.   The flooring that was down before was laminate that was poorly installed.  There were times you would have to kick the pieces back together.  I don't know who installed the floor but they should never be allowed to install another floor again.  The type of wood flooring I am putting down now is called engineer flooring it is great because it can be installed almost over any type of sub flooring even concrete. It is more durable than regular wood so it makes it also great for kitchens you don't have to worried about it being damage with water.  So this is the first of many projects to be done in Americas tiniest kitchen. 

Now moving on to my next project this one I am doing myself  hehe.   This footstool sat in front of my vanity

but after time as passed it is time for a change.  Plus there is this idea in my head that I know will be fabulous when I am done. But look at what I had to go through to remove this cover

What a mess!! and to make even worse what a piece of JUNK!!! I don't remember how much I paid for this little stool but it was too much money after seeing all of this.  There were tons of staples and then it was cover with something that looked like a sock lol I don't know what the heck that thing was but any who this is what I am going to cover it with
I am looking for some old rhinestone pieces of jewelry to make a center button.  I will show updates on this one when it's all done.  Next is a project I want to try that I found in Create and Decorate Magazine.  I have had this sewing basket for sometime now.

Well Ladies time for me to go visiting more of you I am still catching up.  Then off to more creating.  This year will be a year of Creating for me One Idea At A Time.  Have a Wonderful Evening
Peace and Blessings
Cheryl...Snatch JOY~!
