Gracias and Day 2 of Cabinet makeover

I have been trying to figure out a way to say THANK YOU to you lovely ladies who have nominated me for awards without having to write a bunch of things about myself. I've decided to just spread some linky love and give you an idea of what these creative ladies can do so you can check out their talent.

 First I would like to thank Nicole @ Bugaboos Creations.  She nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award.  She has a really fun site. Here's an example of what she's been working on. 
 You also have to see her dresser makeover. Check it out HERE.

I would also like to thank Kimberly @ The Cupcake Cuppy for the Kreative Blogger Award. 
 She and her daughter did a wonderful job giving this old chair a new life.
You can also check out her tutorial on how to make your own alphabet blocks HERE.  

Thank you to Jamie @ The Junk Box for passing along the Kreative Blogger award. Jamie has all sorts of goodies on her site from decorating to ideas to crafts for young women. I love this.

 You can also find fun file folder church games HERE.  

Thank you ladies!!! I don't know what you are thinking nominating me, but I sure do appreciate it! I hope I got all of your info right. Let me know if I need to make adjustments or changes! You rock!

So I have to throw in day 2 of my cabinet makeover. I worked on the shelves. 
I figured that there's going to be a boat load of painting for this project, so I saved myself some painting time by covering the shelves that come out with burlap. I used spray adhesive to position the burlap and then used my favorite tool, the pneumatic staple gun...oh yeah baby!!

Fun stuff.  After I stapled the crap out of them I added weed paper to the bottom to prevent all the not so delicious fraying that burlap brings to the table. 
 Hopefully I'll have this done by the end of the week. That might be a little ambitious with all that has to be done this week, but I'll give it a shot.  Have a wonderful sunny day!
