Kitchen Makeover And A Welcome To The Weekend

Kitchen Makeover And A Welcome To The Weekend Link Up!!

Hello and happy Friday, friends 🙂 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:

Kitchen Makeover And A Welcome To The Weekend:

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?

    OMG you're so brave!! I try to do all the work before moving in, and once I'm in, there's to be as minimal extra work as possible. I just can't deal with the noise and the dust and the hassle and the stress GRINAnd if you haven't yet, do come over and join my weekly Friday Link-Up? I'd love to see you there.
