"Don't wish me happiness I don't expect to be happy all the time....It's gotten beyond that somehow. Wish me courage and strength and a sense of humor. I will need them all." Anne Morrow Lindbergh

My kitchen/studio counter

One of my kitchen counter's is made from driftwood and the original cabin door. I also use this counter when I am weaving since I share my kitchen with my floor loom. I repainted the door with a Benjamim Moore Aura paint and the colour is Fusion (AF-675) and than I put on several coats of Stay's Clear acrylic high gloss polyurethane. With the occasional re-coat of polyurethane it should be good for another seventeen years or so.

  1. Very nice! How did you learn to do ll this stuff?

    1. Hi Sandi I pray a lot. I am just an ordinary person. It is prayer and God that makes all the difference. Thanks for your question. Ronda

  2. Absolutely beautiful. What a charming space. I still love your curtains...hoping you are well.

  3. It's such a beautiful and cozy spot! I love your curtains, too - pillow slips, right? It all shouts "Ronda!" You go, girl!

  4. Yes! They are pillow slips embroidered by my great grandmother. I feel so blessed to have them.

  5. How interesting that your kitchen countertop is made from driftwood and the original cabin door! I expect it definitely should last another 17 years, or so! Your gorgeous curtains I see were your grandmother's handiwork, how lovely that you get to see on display her handiwork while you work in your kitchen! Trust you are doing well, and that you are enjoying the transition into fall :) Hugs!
