A re-do and a microwave cover!

First off, I just wanted to send a thank you to CHERYL for the awesome picture frame that I won during her birthday giveaway week. I havent been able to get a picture because Kindle grabbed it out of my hands no sooner than I had it opened from its pretty black and white wrapping:)

Second, more thank yous about finding the masonry nails. I had NO clue thats what they were called. I have some patterns that call for them so I thought, Ill check ebay! Thank you to all who commented on where to find them. I picked up a few boxes yesterday of 2 different sizes and have them rusting as we speak!

Now, here is ONE of my re-dos. I got this from GW last week for $2.99.

Psssssssst: I had a heck of a time trying to get the right light for my pics this morning to capture the true color of the piece. I ended up taking 100 pictures of my micro cover in all!
I have a bunch more to post but Im having a heck of a time finding them a home in order to take "pretty pics". Ill work on that this week some!!

And finally this...................

My microwave cover built by my brother Nick!!! I painted and stained it and have been playing around with a home for it. I didnt realize just how big it is until I set it on my counter. I dont have much counter space in my kitchen so for NOW, this is where it will stay:)

Ive had a few ask to see pictures of the inside, I hope this isnt too dark.
If it is, let me know! I wanted pics without the flash because the flash on my camera is SO bright it brightens out the true colors.

If you get a chance, could you show a pic of it Open? I love it, and like Beth says..."oh no! another thing to open" would maybe send the boys over the edge", but they are big,,,,LOL

Hey Jenn. Love the microwave cover! Would you mind sharing how you rust the nails? I have tried a few recipes and none have worked. Thaks~ Justina

Jenn, I love the micro cover and the candle shelf! You did a great job on it. Did you paint and distress the micro cover too? It looks awesome!
I had to laugh at Beth's comments, because I can just hear Steve fussing about the same thing! :D But I'd tell him that he would get over it! :D
Have a great Sunday!
