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.

Changes

I was cleaning today, which gave me time to think, and thinking always leads me here. The house is 'weekend messy', so decided to clean my floors, because The Nester says if your floors are clean the rest of the house feels clean too, even if it isn’t.  I have found that it is pretty good advice, so when everything else feels chaotic, I clean the floors. Of course for me, cleaning the floors also means picking up the toys, shoes, clothes, etc. so that I can even begin to vacuum, which naturally leads to a cleaner home as well.  While cleaning up I began to think about how this blog has evolved over the years, from a desire to write like The Nester about home, into what it is now.  I started writing this blog when I was dreaming of building a new home. Then plans changed, life took turns, and we ended up in a home so different than I expected and so perfect for our family. Somewhere along the way I realized that home wasn’t in the walls that went up or in the co

From My Christmas Wish List to Yours!

One of my favorite stores, West Elm, has now opened a special section called The Market. It specializes in kitchen, garden and personal care. Lets just say I am in love. If I had unlimited resources to spend in one store to do a total overhaul on my house, it would be West Elm, and now with the new Market, I am in lust too. So here are a few of my favorites. Check it out and maybe you'll get some great Christmas ideas for someone on your list. Or maybe my hubby will see this and get a great idea for me! Hint, hint! Enjoy! Incredibly large, amazing cutting board . I've seen these boards doubling as art hanging on the wall, then they take up no storage space! Cast iron Dutch oven . Great for one-pot meals. These glass jars come in varying sizes. I'm thinking they would work well for brown sugar with that rubber seal. I would definitely get plenty of use out of a cheese knife set during the holidays and all year round. Copper measuring spoons . Seriously? Fantastic

We're Buying A House!

Batten down the hatches and hold onto your hard hats, we are going to be fixing up an old farmhouse ! We made an offer on the old house and it was accepted! I cannot wrap my head around it or even begin to believe it yet, but it's real and this is actually happening! The legal paperwork is being drawn up and I will have sooooo much more to tell you all soon. For now though, I can only tell you how incredibly, undeniably, one hundred percent excited I am. (Terrified too, we're going to be loading a ninety year old building on a moving trailer and trekking it across the countryside, but more on that later!) Oh my, I just want to scream and tell you every little detail, but I will hold off until everything is settled and signed on the dotted line. I do want to give a little shout out to the owners, I'm pretty sure they might see this, and they know who they are. "Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. This has been my dream for a really long time, and I truly
