Men with Tools

There have been some serious changes at the Osbornes - all thanks to the Forced Remodel.  We've spent the summer fixing everthing.  Decisions, Insurance Money, Construction Dust.  Our stuff in Boxes.  I'm happy to say that we are nearly back to normal.  The china is still boxed in the garage and I'm still looking for a few things which have been misplaced while moving things around for the construction, but nearly. 

I'm getting hardware for the kitchen cabinets today.  Husband and Step Son had a good time drinking beer, listening to Beetles music, arguing with each other, while installing my new door pulls and drawer knobs. 

I can't update the oak cabinets, but hardware should help.

And this mirror.  Really hate it.  Have for a while.  It's the gold.
Considered getting rid of it, but I have a really hard time getting rid of things.  That's another story.

I should buy stock in a spray paint company.  Old joke, but I've spray painted a ton of things.  This is copper metalic.  I'm hoping it will look similar to a finish on a lamp I've got in the living room.

The oak cabinets look a lot less dated and sad with the hardware, don't they? 

Oh, and the mirror.  I hate it a lot less with the bronze paint.  It's hard to take a picture of a mirror, so you'll have to trust me. 

I have to wait for Men with Tools to hang it.  It is heavy and the biggest nail I have doesn't seem big enough to me.  

Now off to Dianne's Produce.  I need a few things. Tonight, a big pot roast and garlic roast potatoes.

Remember to stay busy.


  1. Ok so where is Dianne's Produce? PS everything looks great.

  2. Oh, Melynda. Please check out my next post. I'm happy to share this with you. Gateway Produce is another locally owned produce market that I like. It's on Andressen just on the other side of 205 from the Vancouver mall. More selection at Gateway, but Diane is really trying for people who want to buy local. I like that she is so hands-on and present.
