New post at My Journey with Teal....October 15, 2014.

The cupboards in the MH are old..not plumb, not wood....but we had to use what we had.  After painting them I noticed that the tops still looked rough.  I told my husband let's get some of those Flourish thingys.  Well, I had to show him and he hemmed and hawed...and I figured...well, I will do that later sometime.

He often goes to the new place on his way to his work and one day I get a picture text.  He had bought the flourishes...painted them and hung them!

And he agreed...just what they needed.

Now here is a secret fellow secret keeper bloggers!!

I plan to use rub and buff on them...but shhhh, we will do that when he is at work one day...
Let's see...doesn't it go something like...
Better to ask forgiveness than permission???

I'm having trouble posting comments on everyone's blog today!

Just wanted to say how much I love the new addition to the cabinets.

Have a nice day, Ceekay.

You are good! Looks great on the black cabinets. Are those new silver knobs? Will the buff 'n rub be silver? You are turning those cabinets into an expensive look!

I am not certain why men do not trust their wives with the decorating details. ☺ What you have in mind will be wonderful I'm sure!

Sweet Meanderings said...

I love it! What a wonderful idea! I can't wait to see everything when you're done.

Ceekay- Pop by my blog today if you get a chance. I did a little bench and used those appliques and used gold Rub & Buff on it. I think you will love it. I love yours! xo Diana

Hi Ceekay,
I think the flourishes are the perfect embellishments.
You are a sneeky little rascal! LOL!

Oh, they are just the ticket! You won't have to beg forgiveness, I bet he's going to love it! Men just have to see it first, for some reason they don't have our vision?!

Hi Ceekay, Love it. I have used these all throughout my home with cabinet redos and I think they just finish it off nicely.
SHHHH keeping your secret. Have fun.
