Well, it's been a long time between blogs again, but I think you'll see why!! We've been busy getting Mom's dye kitchen done. I only have a few more days before Hubby goes back to work so we've been taking full advantage of having him home....and boy have we put him to work. He did a FANTASTIC job on Mom's dye kitchen.
As you know, we live in an old stone home that was built around 1830. In the back of the house was a very "scary" room. We had converted the front part of it into a mudroom when we first moved in 8 years ago, but as we made our way back into the house I wanted to tear the wall down that we had put up and make the whole room the dye kitchen...
|Here's the "scary" room after we tore the wall down that we had previously put up...|
|Right side of the room before....|
|...and after!! We ran plumbing so that Mom could do everything right in this room.|
|Front of the Dye Kitchen, this is the part we had previously redone, but it did need some tweeking....|
|...and after, from a slightly different angle..|
I asked Hubby to build Mom a cutting table but we had this table stored up in the barn that was just the right size...
|We have very big doors in the house and while they are not very energy efficient, I won't get rid of them, but they are all in bad need of a revamp, so we started by painting a coat of charcoal black......|
|...bolts of wool in their new home!!|
|Mom loves her new dye kitchen. She has her little ihome stereo in there with her playing her "as I call it.....country twang" music and I can be in the office right next door...|
|......here's my view of the dye kitchen from my office.....and I can't hear her music....:)|
|Saw table with all it's "guts". I knew the parts could be easily removed....|
|...and sure enough, with a few sprays of WD40 all the parts came right off....|
|and, the after piece. What a neat accent table!!...oh, and I got it for $5|
|.....keep watching, with the opening of the Dye Kitchen Mom and I have been in overdrive creating lots of new things. Visit www.theoldtatteredflag.com to see our website..Coming March 1 see the Wool of the Month above....|
|Baxter says "February.......Go Away, I want spring!!"|
Come back tomorrow for the after pictures of my office.
Until next time....
