Kitchen Pictures....the blues are gone!

Okay, one more look at the before

And now... come on in look around....just don't go to far,the other rooms are not company ready yet! LOL!!!
I need to sit down and stencil myself a dry goods sign to go above my cabinet that I left the dooors off of. were not suposed to see that box sitting in the kitchen floor!
This is the family room area right off the kitchen.(above)

After it got dark...I took another pic in the kitchen, so you could see the curtain(without the sun blasting thru) is made from black stripe ticking. .

Speaking of curtains, let me share with you a bright idea I had ( I get one every once in a while). I measured my windows and decided how much fabric I needed for each window. I wrote it down on file label stickers. When I went to Walmart I ask the lady to cut what I needed for each window and I stuck the labels on each peice. So all I have to do is sew a rod pocket and hand it up! Walmart lady was impressed...anyway

I am so glad the kids are out of school for Spring driving twice a day!
I can have more home time to finish my decorating....the hardest part was the kitchen. No more major redo's until we start on the floors. Well I am gonna paint the bathroom and all the doors and trim.....but you know what I mean....the kitchen is always the hardest.
We will draw a winning name tomowow evening, so it your last chance to enter!
Be Good and have a GREAT Good Friday!

He won't hear of painting the kitchen cabinets, however, when we redo our bathroom, he says we can paint those in there! I love yours! Everything just looks wonderful! Thanks for the inspiration on the open cupboards too. I was thinking of removing the cabinets above my old stove and I was wondering what to put in them that would look really prim or farmhouse style and I love the contents of yours!

    Wonderful kitchen redo! You should pat yourselves on the back! Thanks for sharing!

    Oh, and I'm hoping just maybe I'll be lucky enough that you pull my name out! :)

  29. Love the red in the kitchen!! It all came together so well. Did you use butcher block for the counters?

  30. Beth...LOVE the new look! Very comfy and cozy looking! Just wanted to tell you...when my family first came over here in 1950 from Poland, they lived in LaGrange and worked for a farm family. They eventually moved to Plymouth (where I was born and grew up) but we would drive to Kinston many a Sunday afternoon to visit a couple of other Polish families there. My brother recently went back and found the farm they lived on back in LaGrange those many years ago. What memories...! ~~Annie

  31. All I can say is... WOW! What a transformation! Beeeeutiful! I love RED - and you have soooo many lovely things! I'm glad I found you tonight!


Thank you so Much! Come back and see me again!

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven.
