I found a recipe that I absolutely love, y’all!  I’ve been wanting to share it with you for fo-eva, and since it is perfect for Super Bowl Sunday, I thought now would be a great time!

Last year, when we were traveling back and forth to the Kentucky Opry for Jonathan to perform in the Talent search, we spent a lot of time with our new friends, The McKees.

Their son and daughter play the fiddle at the Kentucky Opry.  They have more talent in their little fingers than I do in my whole body!bathroom 035

 

Very soon, we will be headed back down to the Opry for Jonathan to compete in the Talent Search again.  {Last year, he got overall Runner Up and the “People’s Choice” award.}

We are so excited to see all of our Opry friends again, especially the McKees!  We love the McKee Family!!!

Michelle, their mom, is the hostess with the mostest! Smile  She is the truest example of hospitality that I have ever seen.  One time, while we were visiting the Ky Opry, the McKees had us over to their house to eat and swim in their pool.  My dad and Janet were with us on that trip.

Michelle made a HUGE spread of the most delicious food.  One of the dishes I fell in love with was this Mexican Corn Dip.

It is so super easy to make, and oh so good!

I asked Michelle if she could send me the recipe so I could share it on my blog.  Thankfully, she said “yes.”

This is a dip that I will be making for many future family get-togethers.

I hope you enjoy it!

8 oz. sour cream

1 sm. jar of diced pimento

2 c. medium grated cheddar cheese

p.s. I wish y’all could have seen me taking pictures of the dip for this post.  I seriously kept dipping a corn chip in the dip and eating it while I was taking pictures.  Several times, I had to smooth the “scoops” out that I had created in the dip and add more chips to the red bowls.  I couldn’t stop eating it!  Smile

I’m still trying to answer all the questions about our bathroom makeover through individual posts.

So far, I revealed our bathroom makeover to you HERE.

I shared with you how to build your own butcher block vanity HERE.

Then I showed you how we installed our wood plank walls in our bathroom HERE.

Today, I am going to share with you the three pieces of trim that we used to cap off our wood plank walls.

As you can see in the picture below, adding the trim work to the top of our wood plank walls made a huge difference.

It was SUPER easy to do.

You only need three trim pieces.

* 1×4 wood trim piece

* stool trim piece

* base cap trim piece

We purchased all of our trim pieces from Lowe’s.  I took pictures of the two smaller trim pieces for you…

First, nail the 1×4 trim piece to the top edge of the wood plank wall.

Secondly, nail the “stool” trim piece on top of the 1×4 trim piece.

Lastly, nail the base cap {upside down} underneath the “stool” trim piece.

Be sure to fill in all the nail holes with wood filler and sand if needed.

Then paint the trim work, and you are finished!

Easy-peasy!

 

It’s the little finishing details that can make a big difference!  It definitely gives the space a more custom look.

I hope this little tutorial helps!  If you have any questions, or if I forgot to mention anything, just leave me a comment.

Thanks!
