Years ago....as I sit and gaze...I wonder what the heck was I thinking!
Can you see all of the wallpaper, counters and flooring? Well it's all GONE...oh how thankful I am! Also, so thankful for that huge bar to be gone!
All of the cabinets were a honey oak...drove me insane! So I got out my paint brush and began to paint, paint, paint!
Tadaah....this is what it looked like for Christmas! See the pretty island that the hubs and I made from the huge bar that we ripped out? New flooring, counters, wallpaper(can you believe it)was added to the wall behind the table and chairs that looks like real beadboard. And old tin tile wallpaper was added to the other side that looks like a backsplash. We added crown moulding to the tops of our cabinets, new appliances and all new lighting.
This is the ledge my sweetie made for me...and what window doesn't look cute with shutters? Of course I "had" to paint them PINK! A new faucet was a definite..allowing fill ups on large pots and for cleaning that HUGE turkey that I get every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas!
My late grandmother's china cabinet found the perfect resting spot with the china that she saved up for.....while first starting out. I chose the palest pink and loved so much that I then began to paint the livingroom, hallway and bath the same pretty color. The island has had a few transformations on the counter...I finally found the right combo and love my kithen! I don't think I'll be changing it anytime soon...cause this MAMA loves it! And if Mama ain't happy...then ain't no one happy!
