As the name of my blog indicates, I spend a lot of time thinking about home. Of course, my Heavenly Home is the one that is eternal, so that’s where I need to lay up my treasures, and that’s the one I’m striving for. But in the meantime, I have been given this tiny piece of the here-and-now—this nearly six-acre tract of land, this farmhouse, this domain—in which to serve Him. And, though this is in the earthly realm, I want the things that happen here to be investments in the Heavenly realm.

Diary of a Whim {Part 3}

For the background story, read...
Diary of a Whim {Part 1} ...in which I decide to paint my kitchen cabinets.
Diary of a Whim {continued} ...in which I fill you in on the planning process.




APRIL 16:
Ron is on vacation...and things are happening!


Cabinet doors are coming off!


The eleven-year-old is using power tools!



We are all cleaning and scrubbing and sanding
and cleaning and scrubbing and sanding
and cleaning and scrubbing and sanding some more!



 
Tomorrow...priming!

  5. Cheryl, I can feel the excitement in your house as the Big, Long-Awaited Project begins in earnest. (Well, I can at least feel the excitement of the females. Is the Male excited, too?) I love it that everyone is pitching in. It will be such fun to see the Finished Look! A new color may even call for new matching linens and napkins!

  6. Frances, I like the way you think! New linens...hmmmm... :D

    And I think that the male is excited in a male sort of way. He does like projects. (Thankfully.)
