Kitchen Makeover And A Welcome To The Weekend Blog Hop...

Happy Friday :) How has your week been? All good, I hope?

My week has been mad here. You know when you start one job, then another then your day to day jobs start mounting up? Well, that!! and more. I am exhausted today. I need a nice easy day and lots of cake.

Yesterday I help set up my husband set up our Daughter's new loft bed. Then when he went to work, I put up a floor to ceiling wall length kitchen shelve set up. All by myself. Totally wore myself out. Hopefully, it will all be worth it in the end!??

Here is a sneak peek at what I got up to in the kitchen:

Helping out eh Mollie? Or getting in the way? No worries, you look too sweet here.

Hehe, Mollie loves to help out.

So much still to do as I am staining it all black. I do set on some jobs for myself!! Now I wonder how many coats of black stain this will need to look good?

Have you stained any shelves like this before?

If so, what colour varnish did you use?
