I just wanted to wish everyone a VERY Happy New Year! I spent the Christmas Holidays at home in Victoria and just returned home the other day! I have been dying to post some pictures but I realised I had forgot my camera cord to upload photos to my laptop back here in Edmonton. So at last here are a few. My sister Jessica, her boyfriend Ian and I all helped my Mom to install some flooring in her home over Christmas and my sister accidentally knocked over one of my Mom's china cabinets smashing the glass in the doors and all its contents. My Mom took it pretty well actually which surprised me. So I offered to paint and distress it and add some chicken wire to the doors and sides to give it an old country kitchen feel! Here is the before picture of my Moms broken cabinet:
And here is the after~
I was on really limited reasources so the chicken wire was the biggest splurge at $19 for a pretty big roll, there was PLENTY to spare.
I used some left over white paint my Mom had kicking around the house and a grey primer so it would look even more aged when I distressed it!
Then I just had a ton o'fun playing around with all my Grandma's antiques! I was so surprised to see that she had this mirror which is the EXACT one (the frame) which Holly and I found at the antique mall here in Edmonton! (same one I painted and put on my staircase wall)
Here are Jessica and I at Christmas dinner! It was so nice to be able to spend Christmas with family! We had a blast playing a bunch of fun games my Mom had planned for dinner.
We had a fun New Years too, we had a fondue night at my Dad and Leah's and then played Rockband until midnight!
While on the topic of New Years, one of my resolutions is to do more bog posts lol!
