Hi, I'm hoping that my blog and my experiences will help to encourage you. Our journey through life can be unpredictable at times but KNOW that if you are a believer in Christ, HE will always have your best interest at heart! (Even when things don't make sense!)
Sometimes I just buy bananas and wait for them to start turning brown, LOL.
I meant to post this back in February hence the Valentine them, lol. Joanna Gaines’ recipe for banana bread is sooooo good! I love that you sprinkle sugar on the top before baking. Adds a nice bit of crunch!
If you remember, these are the cabinets I bought from Ikea to flank the new fireplace. My neighbor and I removed the window a couple of weekends ago.
I actually finished the insulation, sheetrock and mud & taped the seams but I forgot to add that pic!
I guess you can see the sheetrock, etc. in this pic. The good news is that it didn’t have to be pretty because the fireplace will cover it perfectly! I pulled up the carpet and pad from the area of the fireplace and under the cabinets and I found 1950’s linoleum. I remember finding it in my bedroom too when I finished that floor. The carpet will stay in the living room until next year when I’m ready to replace it with laminate planks. Fireplace install is scheduled for October 12th!!
These are the Brimnes cabinets I bought for my studio. I love them so much I bought 4 more for my Living Room!
They are soooo heavy I decided to pay the $50 shipping fee. They deliver and will bring the shipment into 1 room of your house. Worth every penny!
So this is all in anticipation for removing that window and having a fireplace put in!!!! I soooo hope I can get it accomplished before December – It’s my turn to host our Family Christmas! More details coming (probably next couple of months). Oh the box still sitting there belongs to my daughter. Here’s the IKEA link – get them when you can – they ALWAYS sell out as soon as they come back in stock: https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/brimnes-cabinet-with-doors-white-40300662/
