Crafting On

The act of creating, in one form or another, preserves my sanity amongst the chaos of life. This explains why I always have more than one project going at a time as well as why my housework tends to fall behind. I enjoy seeing what others are working on and keeping calm with, too. What are you creating? What is keeping you going? Snap a picture or two, post it on your blog, on Instagram #craftingon and/or Flickr and then share it with the rest of us by leaving your link below.



I am still continuing with house projects. I found this cute farmhouse stool at a yard sale. It was stained a reddish color and I couldn't remove it so I painted it white. My boys have used these farmhouse stools before and fallen off of them due to standing too close to the edge and making them tip. So I added some very imperfect stripes on this one to let them know just how close their feet could get to the edge before tipping it. So far it is working!

Hey there! This week's crafting on project isn't exactly crafting (again) but doing some work on our home. I love the brick in our kitchen but it consists of two out of the three walls in our kitchen and it makes it extremely dark, especially in the winter (for reference I had to really brighten up that first photo, the brick was a lot darker than it looks). I was thinking of whitewashing it but in the end I just decided to paint it. I did two coats of primer so far and it already looks so much brighter!

In the future I plan on replacing the black farmhouse sink with a white one as well as paint the cabinets but this simple paint job is all that our budget can handle for now.

What are you working on? Happy creating!
