Seems like the in thing right now is weathered gray furniture, and I have to admit that I am developing a fondness for it as well. I recently found a console at Restoration Hardware that I have been coveting, but it wasn’t exactly the gray color that I was hoping to find. I was looking for more of a dark driftwood tone. Plus, with a price of around $1700, I thought that this would be a good DIY project. I am sorry that I did not take photos of the whole process. However, I have created a sketch up to compensate.
Searching for the right sideboard
A few years ago, I bought a gorgeous,dining table for my hearth room, and every since I have been on the lookout for a sideboard that would look right with it. The table was one of those distressed tables that is made from reclaimed wood and, I wanted something that would look as if it was part of a set. Eventually, I came across a discounted sideboard (75% off) that had the right look, but unfortunately, the finish was a bit too red. It was also missing the legs, which was why it was discounted so much. Of course, I was not to be deterred…… so, on to refinishing the sideboard.
Do you prefer everything to be neatly organized? Well, I do too. So, I have been on a quest to get every inch of my kitchen organized. I have very deep drawers on both sides of my cooktop, so this is the best place to store all of the cooking utensils. However, I hate shuffling around through drawers, searching for a spatula or a spoon. I needed a solution, and I knew just what I wanted – a deep drawer utensil organizer!
