Hello Everyone! Thank you to everyone who left beautiful comments on my blog and supportive email regarding my "middle stuff". It feels good to get it off my chest and it really helps to hear that some of you are also going through or have gone through some similar situations. Your caring and support mean the world to me!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, now onto some pics! This cute lil' cupcake is going to the oh so talented Heather Bluhm. I hope she likes it!
Now, the next pics are of my current kitchen re-do which is in progress. When my husband asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I said that I wanted my kitchen island extended. He asks "why can't you be like other wives and just ask for jewelry?" Because I am not other wives I said. Now, I will say that I do a lot of my own building around this house, but when it comes time for me to receive a gift, help with some of my projects is what I want most.
I wish I had a before pic to show you, but I never remember to do that. But just imagine no posts, brown cabinets and a white Formica counter top. The hubby removed the counter top and added wood on top (that's what I wanted) and added posts and molding. I had already added the wainscoting. Then I painted it this awesome dark aqua. Ooh~la~la
Now, I'm starting to paint the other cabinets white. Here's the before and after. I like the white better but I think that I may want to distress it a bit, as it seems a little too white.
When I finished painting some of the cabinets white, I didn't like how flat they looked so I went and bought some textured wallpaper and added it to the inset of the doors and painted it. I still have a lot more cabinets to finish.
I've been buying artwork from artists in blog land for the kitchen and I'll be sharing that soon.
Okay, time to go, but I have some really cool stuff to share real soon!
