...Cleaver that is... and I'm okay with that! With all of her glorious motherly ways.
I want to be the mom who bakes, sews and knits.
The only issue is... I don't really do any of those things well, so here's me sharing with you all my 101's.
Laugh with me or at me, I don't care. I just hope I can evolve during this process!

Stereo Cabinet Facelift

I'm so happy! I actually finished a project on target this long weekend. This is huge folks. Especially since we have had amazing weather and taken to the outdoors quite a bit. But there's always nap time. Thank goodness for that. My three and a half year old still takes a good afternoon nap on some occasions and this weekend it was needed. The two kids can't shake this cold they've got.

But this allows me time to do my stuff and this weekend I'm on a laundry and cleaning strike. Gross, yes, but much needed cause otherwise it can take over your life and its all I ever do. Am I right?

So here, the reveal. Cabinet re-dressed.

It was all pretty straight forward. Unscrew the panels, speakers and handles; remove old fabric that had been stapled on and affix new fabric with double sided tape and hot glue at the corners. Again I hit a project where I remember I don't have a staple gun. Who doesn't own a staple gun, for the love of...
I really need to get me one.

But really, I managed without and am so happy with the new cheery look. (So is my son actually)

And I love how much the handles show up now.
And I've got a bit of the fabric left. About 10". Not too much, but enough. I'll put it away in my fabric stash and rediscover it later.


  1. Looks great. Love the pattern and color.

  2. Awesome! Love those handles.
    Ha, we "borrowed" my mom-in-law's staple gun like 2 years ago (I wonder if she wants it back?). We REALLY like it.

  3. I just love it! The colours - it's groovy. Rather fancy one myself :)
    I bought myself a staple gun recently - oohlala - I LOVE it!


I love comments. They make me happy.
