Kitchen Happenings


  At the end of September I blogged about the huge mess in my kitchen.  Since then there have been a few changes.  The flooring has been replaced, new fabric has been ordered for curtains and the cabinets have been prepped for painting.  My husband and I along with our dear friend are doing all of the work.  Progress has been slow, but steady.  

  I'm really looking forward to updating the cabinets.  They are my least. favorite. thing. in. the. entire. house.  In addition to painting them, we will be adding some molding to spruce them up a bit.  So please be patient with me my friends, as we work to get the kitchen back in order.  I'm hoping things will be done soon, since we're hosting Thanksgiving dinner at our house.  In the meantime, I'll be back soon with a recipe to share!

PS. My daughter and I agreed on color for her bed!  So I'll be making a trip to Home Depot soon for some white paint!  Her room is green, white and pink!  I was hoping she'd agree to pink, but since I got tired of begging it's her room, white it is!

  1. We painted our cabinets about two years ago and they made such a huge difference to the look of the room. I now want to paint them again, this time a dark color, I'm quite certain that won't go over with the Mr.

    Make sure you take the time to sand them. We didn't and now we are going to have to go back and repaint them. I want new knobs this time but seeing that I have 27 knobs to replace that is an expensive change.

    Looking forward to seeing the changes!!

  6. Adding trim to your cabinets will make all the difference in the world! I love the fabric behind the green pillow is that a bedspread?

  7. Also I don't know about you-but I've recently painted our kitchen cabinets white and it is a royal pain to keep them clean with kids!

  14. It's a lot of work, but rewarding afterwards...I smile about your daughter's choice of color...I had the same problem with my son. It appears any color I like he dislikes (smile).

  20. I can't wait to see your kitchen. I know it is going to be spectacular!

    It is probably a good thing you are doing your daughter's walls white. We painted my daughter's walls pink; about six months later she decided she didn't like pink anymore...lol
