Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend Everybody!
This is a little sketch I did of my mother -in-laws chicken coop.
Her dad made it, and it is no longer used as a coop, but a shed.
It sits in the backyard kind of neglected.
I scraped and painted it last year as it was a peeling mess.
But this is how I really imagine it could look.
Here sits Claire's little coop.
Her dad named the Coop "Ucomin".
He made a sign that hangs about the door.
It has a window in the back that you can retrieve the eggs.
Anyway, it is cute and I think it has a lot of potential.
So maybe I will be working on this area this sunny weekend.
We planted a lawn and you can see it is starting to come in.
I have a few other projects planned for this weekend too.
Another project is the new chandy.
This is a peek of the ceiling medallion I painted for it.
Mr. Maison Decor said we could hang it this weekend.
I've been working on some tole trays for my kitchen...
I bought some miniature ones from Etsy
 and some didn't have a gilded edge...
I trimmed the window shelf in the kitchen and then asked 
Mr. Maison Decor to try his hand at routering.
Oy Vey!
 It was an ugly moment...this was the sample...
Looks like a wild bear ate through the wood.
 I had to come up with Plan B.
Tin tile was my solution, but that is for another post.
I am still working on the kitchen decor, and will be anxious to share.
Until then, 
enjoy the weekend,
and get some projects done!


  1. I have to say I love the way that shelf looks. Is that the plastic stuff you get at Lowe's? And yes, I think you could do fabulous stuff with that chicken coop. I'm about half done with the kitchen tile project and I am LOVING how it is looking. I have a few other things I want to do in the kitchen too. But I know'll get way more done than I do.

  2. Good luck! Enjoy your weekend. Looks like you will be busy!

  3. Love that little coop! You are a project machine! I don't want to do anything but sip lemonade this weekend. It's a holiday. lol I'll be anxious to see what you've done.

  4. I can't wait to see the medallion and chandy installed. I just looked around today for a similar styled one for my daughters room. No luck unfortunately.
    I'm anxious to see your tole trays too. I marked some in your shop as my faves. I don't have but a couple but sure do like them.
    Like those boots I see in the pic too!

    Have a great weekend Amy!


  5. Hi Amy- I love that old coop. I wish I had the one that was on the farm where I grew up! Can't wait to see your chandy hung and I LOVE your shelf-Good job....uhhh...the router and your hubby? Yeah..NOT a good mix!;>) Hugs- Diana

  6. that is to adorable! : ) i love your little sketch of it!

  7. Love your coop/shed. I also love the red stuga (red cottage in Swedish) in the background. Most of the Summer cottages/homes in the Swedish countryside are painted like that. I stayed in one in 1965 and in 1978. So cute!!!

  8. Love that!! Sooo cute......reminds me of a small European or country cottage you see in Bermuda painted those colors. Look foward to seeing the lighting all hung up!

  9. The medallion looks awesome! Can't wait to see it all come together!

  10. Love your sketch of the shed! It would look great finished the way you 'see' it!
