I have been wanting to do a makeover in my kitchen every since we put in new granite counter tops. But...I forgot all the work that goes with a makeover! When it's us women getting a makeover all we have to do is sit there! With a kitchen makeover we have to do all the work!
The fun has started so I must see it through. Walls are bare. Curtains and blinds down.We had to Spackle some holes....let's not discuss that too much as it makes my man fighting mad to put a hole in the wall. Needless to say we will be using something different to hang my pretties and I have some new pretties stashed in my She-shed.
One thing is for certain, I have gotten lots of cleaning done in the kitchen. Pantry door will be coming down. Baseboard coming up soon. Lots of small and big projects taking place. WHEW, I am already tired.
Everything that needed to be taped has been. I walk in my kitchen and see Blue...blue, blue!
A trip to Sherwin Williams has taken place and samples of paint brought home.
And tons of pictures saved on kitchens that look a lot like my kitchen does. My kitchen and dining room is one large room with a kitchen bar that kinda-sorta separates the two. I have a rustic type home and my main decor in kitchen has been more of a mountain home look in which I have loved. I am not veering too far away from my rustic look as it suits us perfectly or maybe because I am feeling pretty "rustic" in age right about now. LOL! But decor will be kicked up a notch or two. Can't wait to show you some of my decor I have stashed away.
The outside of cabinets has been cleaned and I am talking cleaned! I have washed down, waxed down, buffed down and was DOWN in my back...but they are clean! I have always loved my cabinets. They are solid oak and we had our cabinets custom built 25 years ago. I went back and forth on whether to paint, re-stain or what! I have looked at pictures of several of my friend's cabinets and I decided to stay with the natural solid oak that I had, same color but spruce them up a tad. I will share next week how one tiny mistake that I made winded up making me very happy with my cabinets. Now to look at hardware! Have you priced kitchen cabinet hardware lately?
We worked up a hunger for sure so we fixed us some blackened Tilapia on my granny's old iron skillet frying pan sitting on the gas grill. Whipped up some fresh steamed cauliflower and broccoli and YUM is all I can say!
Spent some time with this cutie one afternoon and needless to say, she is one busy little gal.
And in the midst of our busy weekend we watched the grandson play in his final basketball game of the season at our church. He is the one on the right in the dark blue on the shoulders of his friend.
Finished up the weekend with dinner and watching the grandgirl play outside on a beautiful day.
My peach trees blossomed a few weeks. I love the pretty color.
Now I have some baby peaches. YAY! Well that is if the next frost we get doesn't strike! You never know about the weather in Florida.
I hope you all have a great week. Back to the kitchen for me every spare moment I get.
Hugs and blessings, Cindy
