Happy Monday! I've been busy working in my yard off & on for the past week. I finally finished placing round rocks around my flower beds & must say I absolutely LOVE them! It took 3 trips to my mom & sisters house to scavenge through their rock piles, but I am finally done! I have another project that I just finished tonight. It is a cute little corner cupboard/shelf I got for Christmas a couple of years back. I really liked the cabinet as it originally was but I felt like it needed something "more" to fit into my house...so I painted it! My mother (who gave it to me) might not be too amused by that fact, but it's too late now. It's a lovely shade of black -coal black to be exact-and I think it turned out great! I can't wait to find some "goodies" to put in it. Here's the before & after....


I am looking forward to another week of garden work & hopefully a new bargain!! I'll try to take some pics of the yard & post them. I'm trying to go for a "country/cottage" garden ...we'll see.

I like it in the coal black, too! Does your mother like it? I hope she didn't give you too much grief over painting it. :)

Thanks for linking up, btw.

Cheers,
