A cool ceiling and dinner!

A couple cool things transpired today.

In the kitchen, I needed to come up with a plan to cover up missing ceiling stucco from removed valances. I approached Dan with some funky panels of some sort but I hadn't completely solved the mystery. He grabbed my drawing paper and with a few flicks of his wrist, came up with some MDF fabricated 'rusty' panels complete with rivets. Cool... these will attach along two ceiling walls, against the windows and cupboards.

So for the past two days we have been creating some pretty unique touches for the kitchen. It was a must as this needed to be installed before the cupboards arrive Tues. Dan fitted them in place today while I added rivets (wooden plugs) and a special paint that goes on black but once you add acid, it rusts. Not done with it all yet, but should be tomorrow.

This kinda stuff makes me tick! Thanks Dan, for the added funk that makes me smile everytime I look up!

The 2nd cool thing is how dinner arrived on my doorstep tonite. Allowing renos to take over lately is abit of an understatement so as you can imagine, not a whole lotta home cooking is being accomplished. Elizabeth wanted to help in some way and invited Cody and I for dinner, however when she got a taste of our crazy schedule of late, she brought over a wonderful casserole for us to enjoy! I am telling you, that is the way to renovate! Stay dirty and get served in grand style! It was so delicious! Thanks Elizabeth!!!

It was a productive and very cool day. I'm off to slumberland so I can do it all again tomorrow!
