Anywhoooo....I knew I wanted a shelf but I didn't really want to spend much if any money on it. Then I remembered I still had a hanging wicker storage shelf from when we remodeled the bathroom that we weren't using anymore. So I decided to remove the doors from it, then I puttied and sanded where the holes were and then gave it a fresh coat of white paint. What would I do without spray paint? I love thee so. I think I've been through about 12 plus cans of it in the past month on various projects. *grin* Sorry there went my train of thought again. Yes shelf...back to the shelf.
So now I have a "new" shelf in my new kitchen and best of all it didn't cost me a dime. Woohoo!
Pictured below are the before pictures and after pictures and of course of my little helper. Isn't she cute? *smile*
Then tonight I made homemade pizza for dinner...mmmmmmm. Then after dinner it was PUMPKIN CARVING TIME!!!!! :)
The girls are designed their own faces for their pumpkins. Mom of course got named the official "pumpkin scooper outer" because it was I quote "icky, slimy, yucky, ew". Thanks. *rolling eyes* Each girl had her own pumpkin that they had picked out at the pumpkin patch awhile back. I also had a big pumpkin of my own that I picked out too so I carved that one (and scooped it of course....ewwwww. *rolling eyes* lol).
I think it's funny that the ones they picked out all on their own actually vary in size by their own age. R the oldest picked the largest, G the middle child picked the middle sized one, and E picked the baby sized pumpkin. :D It's too cute.
Here are the before and the after pics of the pumpkins (oh and a pic of the pizza just to make you hungry). ;)
(Oh and sorry they're not that greatest photos I was too lazy to get a tripod out and I suck at hand holding night pictures lol...but you get the idea. )
