Still Messing With Doors!

I know I showed this on Friday, but here I go again. I was proud of myself!! :)


Hi Dear Ones! I'm still messing with doors! Yes, I am! Mr. Precious and I have been working in the kitchen and repainting our cabinets. I'll have to show you all of it a bit later because we're still working on it. But I can show you this area today - the little desk area in the breakfast room.

Sweet little soft yellow walls(I painted them back in October!) that used to be red (loved the red walls but I was getting so tired of them) and the cabinets are just as white as white can be. But we have a tiny problem! You see the cabinet doors have chicken wire on them and that's just as cute as a button, but you can see inside! Now the insides are all neat and stuff now but I have never liked that you could see my things. See...nasty!

You can look right in!

But I just have to show you my neatness behind the chicken wire! I've been cleaning out and purging and rearranging all my cupboards in the kitchen, this little desk area included! Even in all of my neatness, it just looks nasty when you walk in here and look through the chicken wire!

Okay, you're probably wondering why I have this little fabric ruffle across here. Well, there's a big ole hunky light under there and it's too bright for my most gorgeous tiny peepers - so I make a little ruffle to camouflage it. I know you can replace these, but don't say anything, Mr. Precious really doesn't know how to do those kinds of things. Hopefully soon we can get someone to change out all the hunky old lights with little bitty skinny ones.

Here's the other side. I do love this fabric though and made curtains to go with the red walls a few years back. I have used this fabric for all the windows in here. Well, I thought since I had changed the wall color I would make new curtains. I bought some fabric, cut it, made the ruffle for this spot, hung it up and hated it! So, I went back to these red ones. Just thought I would share that with you.

Said all of that to show you what I did! I know, I'm a silly! Look what I did. I put some fabric behind my chicken wire doors! You can see them on the left all nasty and nekked (Texan for naked) and then all dressed and covered up on the right side! I love it! Do you?

Here's a close up of the fabric. White with tiny little yellow dots, very subtle. I doubled the width of the opening, ruffled it and then came in and, now don't faint, used my wood stapler and poked it up here! Works for me! :)


Look! I love this. As I look at this picture, it almost looks like lace behind the chicken wired doors. But it's not! Just white with little yellow dots! I really do love this and my neatness behind the doors is all covered up now! :)

We really do sit here and talk on the phone, puter and other things, so we have an office chair sitting here - in all of it's brown gloriness! I must do something about this one day. But I did poke a pretty little pillow down that I made.


Oh, look up above the cabinets! I hung up two little water color Rooster pictures (the frames really are exactly the same - they just look a bit different here) and a Rooster plate I found back a while ago. Now I climbed up on my little wooden ladder and had to stand on the next to the top rung to hang these! Mr. Precious hates it when I climb, but what is a most lovely short one to do? CLIMB! :)

Just gotta show you one more time! Do you like my little desk area?

Can I show you just one more time? :) Can you tell I like the yard birds? :)

I'm joining Cindy today at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~ this song has nothing to do with my post, it just popped into my most tiny mind and I wanted you to sing it...

Tennessee Waltz

I was dancin' with my darlin' to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancin'
My friend stole my sweetheart from me.

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darlin' the night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz.

I was dancin' with my darlin' to the Tennessee Waltz
When an old friend I happened to see
I introduced her to my loved one
And while they were dancin'
My friend stole my sweetheart from me.

I remember the night and the Tennessee Waltz
Now I know just how much I have lost
Yes, I lost my little darlin' the night they were playing
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz
The beautiful Tennessee Waltz
