A Pop Of Color, Whereupon To Perch

Some spare bar stools were purchased from you guessed it, the Facebook market place πŸ€ͺπŸ‘πŸ»


Though officially our kitchen island only fits four, we’ve had one extra person/mini person sit on each end during visits, so we needed the extra bum rests😜

This specific makeover took an oddly long span of time for me to actually get at and tackle but I’m so pleased with the results πŸ€“πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ› 

They got a good scrubbing, then a light sanding and coat of primer.

Paint chips were then gathered using this photo as inspiration.


Paint sample pots were then bought at Home Depot for around $5.00 a pot.
I used hardly any of the paint, even after two some coats of paint per stool.

So, I have to think up some new project for the remaining paint because I absolutely adore these colors πŸ€©πŸ€­πŸ™ŒπŸ»



Speaking of our kitchen island, it’s held up well, up till a few days ago.

One edge has just recently begun to crack… and quite aggressively.
Meaning the hubs is called back for some warranty work πŸ€ͺ

Though it has now cracked and will need replacing probably sooner than later, it was completed in April 2018 and lasted until August 2019… not bad for a project costing around $80.00 and adding a custom aspect to our space.
Plus, now that Michs made one, he can hopefully iron out some kinks in the making of the next oneπŸ‘ŒπŸ»

So, hopefully it doesn’t fall apart on one of our toes until it gets fixed but until that time, the stools are looking fine πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
