Ok, confession time…. I actually posted this by complete accident. I meant to just get the pictures and then go back and write the post but obviously I reversed the process. So here is the *actual* article.
Now, this room is shabby at best. It’s basically shelves in a half sunken room off of my kitchen. Nothing special. Concrete, unfinished boards and canning supplies. But I took a shine to this ratty little corner of my home. It became a pleasure to see my canning jars lovingly lined up on the shelves. Some bursting with past produce and some awaiting their turn to be filled up with home canned goodness. Not only does it hold all my kitchen essentials it can serve as a shelter should we need it. (We don’t get hurricanes or tornadoes here but you never know)
And so because this little room is near and dear to me I have a plan to give it a make over. Of course. The first step was sealing all those pesky cracks because old saw dust insulation kept trickling down on me…. not fun…especially when there are spiders and one might accidentally mistake said sawdust for a spider running down one’s back…maybe.
Anyhow, that was a simple fix. I DIYed a quick wall paper paste and used large sheets of white card stock to paste over the cracks. Ta-da! Take that tricky saw dust!
The next faze will be to white wash the whole shebang. I am planning on going totally old school on this little jobby so I am going to mix up another DIY for white wash. This will be my first go with that and if it works well I plan on using it for the interior of the smaller outbuildings to brighten things up (so I can see when I go hunting in the large freezer).
Finally, I plan to use those awesome vintage wall papers to dress up those plain white shelves. It’s going to be all granny blissed out I tell ya’!
I am super excited for this little make over and as soon as my little self is able I want to put some time into it.
What do you think? I will put out a completed “tour” once it is finished. Until then, have a wonderful day!
