A Missionary Quilt

a friend of mine made this for her daughter, who has recently returned home from her mission.
i finished the quilting today.

she made envelope blocks

she embroidered all the countries that the people her daughter served with
or taught were from.

A Fabulous Find!

this picture doesn't really show how awful the counter tops were.
the orange 70's counter top was acceptable when the cabinets
were natural, but now that i've painted them, 
it looks AWFUL!!!!

so i went in search of a way to paint a laminate counter top
an ORANGE laminate counter top!!!

i found this product!
it's fabulous!!!

it comes in many different colors, the paint people at your local lowes
will tint it for you.
i chose ivory.

so i used bead board wallpaper on the inset of the cabinet
SUPER easy!!!
it's paintable. the cabinet on the right has a coat of paint on it
so you can see.

it looks 100 x better!

i will share the completed project when it's done.
i'm off to paint the downstairs counter top now!
