Ya'll Come On In...


Hi friends,

As I mentioned in my first post we live in a real fixxer upper...that has been fixed. :)
When we first moved in the house, the kitchen sink was green and the mini blinds were pink....not a good combination. We hung new wallpaper & changed the sink. Then we had to do what I call " UN-FUN " stuff to the house, roof, foundation, windows, doors etc. Although, picking out new windows and doors was kind of fun, the foundation work and saving for the entire roof to be done, was not fun. The first big project we did was the patio in 12/05. I've already shared this with you but in case you missed, it's under my Patio, Yard and a little friend post. Two years ago, we were able to " do " the kitchen. We purchased new counter tops, back splash, sink, faucet and new appliances. We weren't able to spend money on cabinets but one day I may paint them. I kind of wish I would have done something to the cabinets then. So, here it is....just remember it's little. :) Our house is only 1068sqft.






The back splash was a bit of a splurge it's tumbled travertine with black granite inlays...it was my dream back splash. :)
Well, that's it! There aren't many ways to take a picture in this small space. :)
I hope everyone has a wonderful week!
Hugs, J. : )

I think the cabinets look fine. Have you thought about just switching out the hardware? It can give the cabinets a whole new updated look doing that. I bought a couple of different types of knobs (my last house) and went home and put them on my cabinets and looked at them for a few days. I returned the ones I ruled out and then bought the ones I needed of the ones that matched. It's a lot less work than painting cabinets! I love what you did though with the backsplash and everything. I know exactly the green and pink you're talking about too, it used to be so popular with people my mother's age! The big window at the end makes it look so light and airy too!

If this is the post you were telling me about that was scheduled for today, I am sad. It is fine, but that does mean that you are not home with power yet!
