Better.

The other day was rough.

I vented.

I feel better now.

It helps that the kitchen color rocked my socks off. Like blew my mind, amazing! Just seeing the new color on the kitchen walls, makes everything seem so much better.

Two coats of paint are done in the kitchen, and all I have left is the edging. I am gambling with this house and not taping off the ceiling or anything else for that matter. Quite frankly I don't have the time to tape off a gazillion rooms.

So far feehanding the edging is working out, and let's face it, when was the last time you sat at someones house having coffee and thinking to yourself, "Man, they really didn't do a very good job edging!"

I really hope you answered, "Never!"

I digress.

The kitchen looks amazing, Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter.

In other news, I started priming the cabinets. Sorry Grandma, I am painting them for sure.
I have known all along I wanted white cabinets. Hate me if you want, wait, no, please don't. I can't help it, it's what I want. I was a little nervous about finally going for it though. I have reservations about painting something in good condition, but it's done now.

The floors will be wood, and the countertops will be butcher block, so I think the white cabinets will be a great contrast.

Boom! Consider your minds blown.

Ok, maybe not yet, but you will. Trust me.

Anyone else up to renovation projects, big or small? Let me hear it! Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Oh I have so many times looked at others wall to ceiling paint and said, "who painted that?" Then I remembered I did.

A Crate and a Challenge

One of my favorite blogs is having a Pintrest Challenge. They do it a couple times a year and its just a fun time to challenge everyone to complete a project they've pinned on Pintrest. I've been wanting to get in on the action, but never found the time. Oh yeah and a little thing called, I don't do Pintrest. It's not because I'm not interested or I don't think I'll like it. I'm terrified of it! I already spend too much time perusing my favorite house app and a bunch of blogs I follow, and Facebook. If I added something as captivating as Pintrest, my house and kids may just go completely uncared for. So in the spirit of playing along with the Pintrest challenge I thought I'd share our headboard that I made a couple years back, loooong before I started blogging. It is by far one of the projects I am most proud of! Almost three years ago, the hubs and I got a new bed, a giant sized, California King! It came with a frame, but no headboa

The Farmer

I trust that, by now, you have all seen the commercial heard round the world. You know, the one that stopped all action and silenced a nation when the soft rumble of that voice drifted into living rooms on a Super Bowl Sunday. Yes that commercial . Paul Harvey's voice, unmistakable in its sincerity and beauty, spoke of a people whom work from sun up till sun down with no recognition. He spoke of a people whom care for their baby animals and pour their blood, sweat and tears into helping them grow. He spoke of a people, so foreign to many in the world today. He spoke of a people whom many have forgotten. He spoke of a people; my people. The farmer. I am a fourth generation farmer married to a fourth generation farmer. Together we are raising the fifth generation. We don't do it because its easy, it's not. The hours my husband spends working rival that of any doctor or lawyer I have ever met. We don't do it because it's profitable, some years it&#

Happiness

I am a New Years girl. I love goals and check lists and I love the feeling of a fresh start, but resolutions have never been my thing. A few year ago I began picking a word for the year and I found that it works really well for me.  Setting a word for the year has helped me to focus on a quality that I want to grow in myself. Last years word was ‘ intentional ’. It was a full year and in a lot of ways a really hard year. Being intentional with my words, thoughts and actions helped me to really lean into the relationships in my life. The past year felt somber though. It was good and I grew more than I could have imagined, but it also felt serious and deep. I need some relief. This year after praying over it and considering what I would like more of in the coming year, I knew that my word for 2019 had to be 'happiness'. I want more laughter, more spontaneity, more fun in 2019 and none of those things come naturally to me. I thought about words like joy and contentment b
