Look At What My Sweet Hubby Built Me



Saturday my Sweet Steve says,
"You know that shelf you have been wanting . . .
let's go buy the wood and I'll build it" 

 We got the wood Saturday 
and by evening he had it built :)

 Sunday afternoon he installed it . . .
and I started painting. 

Here it is with the island rolled back 
into the kitchen.

 Now I have a place to display all of my
vintage kitchen collections.

Some are thrift shop finds
and some are gifts . . .

All are loved and add to the coziness
of our 1905 country home.

I love how it turned out . . .
and that my sweetie spent his Saturday,
do this for me.
~~~~~*****~~~~~
I'm truly blessed.

Keep Smiling!

Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

  11. Your husband is almost as nice as mine! smile. I actually have to ask him NOT to build anything else because there's no room left in the house! He did buy a lathe on the weekend so that should keep him busy now.
    I like all your vintage items so well arranged too.

  15. That is really sweet of him. Men are naturally skilled in craftsmanship, so there is no point that their effort will go unrecognised. Finally, you have got a storage shelves to display your vintage collection.
