I would not describe myself as handy–creative, yes. Thankfully, I have a wonderful husband who takes my wild ideas and brings them to life. Several years back, during the sprucing up of the kitchen at HatRidge–the home we built together in Mississippi, I had such an idea for the hubby. **Quick interruption for backstory: We began our DIY…home improvement…home building…in 1998. The hubby is conservative (very khaki) and a bit stingy. His motto is why pay someone when we can figure it out and do it ourselves. Me–well, I am colorful with a sky’s the limit attitude.** Anyway, his stinginess led me to the junk piles and thrift stores to find awesome treasures for the kitchen. Long story short. When I stumbled upon a pair of vintage bedposts, I knew I had found the perfect legs for the kitchen countertop.
If I had to pick two favorite projects from the HatRidge kitchen, one would be the travertine floors the hubby and I installed–because travertine is simply gorgeous + the second would be the vintage bedposts we converted to countertop legs–because I love taking unwanted junk and giving it new life.
