We have a tight space in the kitchen that we use as our dining area, and the table and chair set we have now is too big for the space. Ever since we moved into the house we have wanted to make banquette seating to utilize the space better.
Have you ever had something happen that completely unmotivated you, and takes you off your planned course? Well that happened to me this summer. In my last blog post back from June, I mentioned that we had a very heavy rain that flooded our property. Well 6 days later, we had the biggest/hardest/longest storm I have ever seen. It rained so heavy and long that our house was literally surrounded by 2 ft of water. It was like our house was an island and there was no way out. What made it even worse was it was in the middle of the night and it was dark, so we couldn’t really see how bad it really was. Thankfully, our chickens were on their roosts, and were in the air because their coop had 2 ft of water in it as well. I was so upset, that I didn’t even take any pictures of the aftermath. I really wanted to just forget it happened and move on. Our neighbor who has lived in his house since the 1960s said he has never seen this happen, so I’m hoping this is a once every 100 years storm!!
I decided to just enjoy the summer, and we pretty much put all projects on hold. Here are a few of the projects we did manage to complete. I was ready to start working on the kitchen again, so we picked out and put up a subway tile back splash. Here is the kitchen without the back splash.
We have been blessed with above average temperatures, mixed in with some normal ones, these past few weeks. With Easter being so early this year, I seem to have spring fever a little early. Being a good husband, Ryan, just rolls his eyes and lets me go and do my thing.
I wanted a simple counter piece, so I stumbled upon this free printable from the blog CleanandScentsible.com
