Mini Project Monday: Bright Blue Mirror

You may remember that on my previous Martha Stacey blog, I started a series called Mini Project Monday.  I want to continue with it because I love projects that don’t cost me much in either money or time investment.  It’ll also help me shake off that post-move laziness slump that I’ve fallen into since we moved out to the farmhouse.

I bought this mirror for $17 a few weeks back.  I love that it’s not a typical mirror shape and I’m thinking that it will go on our mantle…once I clear all the tools and other junk off it.


If you’re local and love vintage-y or rustic treasures, you must like Rustic Sisters on Facebook and follow their posts…so many good things at very reasonable prices~

I gave my mirror a facelift with some Rustoleum spray paint in Lagoon and it looks so pretty.  A lovely pop of colour for the fireplace mantle!



Kitchen Progress Report

Probably the most common question I’ve heard since moving into the farmhouse is, “How’s the kitchen?”

A question to which I chuckle in response.  A picture tells a thousand words, so I’ll let one do the talking.


That’s what the kitchen looked like when we moved in.  Awesome.

We’ve progressed a little bit since then…half the drywall is done and the plumbing has been fixed.  Definitely moving in the right direction but not quite there yet.  Once we get to painting, flooring and tiling, I can help so things will move a little faster with more hands at work.  I’ve been told that I’m not allowed to help with cabinet assembly and I’ve decided not to argue the point.

How are we coping?  Well, we have a laundry sink, a crockpot, a microwave, an indoor grill and barbeque..all good things, but I must admit, I miss pasta.  We also have the neighbours, who end up feeding us at least once a week!

Stay tuned for another kitchen update, hopefully soon!
