Fair warning though, this post will be picture heavy but it deserves it. And here it is.

Hey everyone! Excited to be back talking about part of the kitchen makeover today. Besides the new amazing countertops/quartz sink and the cabinet hardware which I’ve shown you all, there is something else cool to show you. And this could easily be a DIY project for you too.

I Know I’m a Fraud, But I Have a Good Reason.

Let me explain something. I’ve been talking about white kitchens for ohhh about 3 years now. First I was going to paint my cabinets, then I wasn’t, then I was, and on and on. I know, I’m annoying. So back to be being a fraud…

Kitchen Command Centers: Do You Really Use Them?

I’ve been seeing a lot of gorgeous kitchen command centers lately and it got me thinking…that looks AMAZING, but do they always stay that nice and organized and do you really use those fancy calendar systems?  I know myself, know my family, and know that it just wouldn’t work. I would not stay on top of that sort of thing. I write my notes on sticky notes for goodness sakes and paste them all over the computer monitor. BUT…

What Makes My Jaw Drop

White kitchens. Yep, I talking about white kitchens again.  I just can’t help it. I can’t get them out of my head.  Every time I see one on the internet (and in person) they really just take my breath away.  I love the dark kitchens too, but there’s just something about white that gets me […]

Hi everyone!  I started the breakfast room redo a few months ago (maybe more), and finally just finished it.  Hooray for several month long projects! ;) Here is the before, of when I redid it the last time… I got tired of the Tobacco Road and repainted the kitchen (Sherwin Williams Balanced Beige) to go […]

Chandelier Shopping

To finish our breakfast room’s little redo, a new light fixture is in order.  It’s time for the current bo*b light fixture to go! :) I’ve been shopping around on Overstock (they have the best deals on lighting), and I think I’ve settled on this one because I always keep coming back to it. It’s […]

A DIY Disaster

Last week I got a wild hair and decided to stain our kitchen cabinets a darker color.  Uh yea, still talking about the kitchen.  I thought I could be a smarty pants and not sand our cabinets and strip the original finish off first.  BIG MISTAKE.  I can laugh about my miserable attempt now, but […]

Redecorating Above the Cabinets

Some people don’t like anything above their kitchen cabinets, and some do.  I happen to like a little something up there.  But what I previously had up there wasn’t working for me anymore. Here is the before (with the kitchen still painted Tobacco Road): What was bothering me about those dishes and pitchers up there […]

So Long Tobacco Road. We Had a Good Run.

Well, I’m sure you all saw this one coming.  I had said I wasn’t going to repaint the kitchen until I stained our cabinets darker, but yea, my paint addiction kicked in at the end of last week and I just went for it. And as silly as it may sound, painting over Tobacco Road […]

This Was On Our Doorstep The Other Day…

Husband: “Why is there a white painted door on our doorstep?” Me: “Umm, I don’t know, maybe it’s a sign from God to paint our cabinets?” Husband: probably rolls his eyes. When I had first talked about painting our cabinets white about a month ago in this post, I think that same day I called […]

Embracing The Wood {And A Mini Kitchen Makeover}

Happy new year everyone!  The new year around here is bringing some much needed de-cluttering and organizing and it feels so good.  I am determined to get rid of a lot of stuff that I am no longer using, accessorize less, and just enjoy simplicity.  I still will have accessories, but hopefully in a less […]

Would You Paint These?

And these? Lately I can’t stop thinking about painting the kitchen cabinets white.  Before I had said I wanted to just stain them darker, but now I turned completely crazy and am craving the white kitchen, with some beautiful white subway tile for the backsplash.  But I wouldn’t be able to change the backsplash for […]

The Famous Pantry Carousels…Not Just For Your Pantry: Under Sink Makeover

I heart chalkboards

Chalkboards are a great way to add that touch of coziness in any room of your home.  It’s a fun way to write sweet notes, honey-do’s, your favorite scripture, the dinner menu, and the list goes on.  They are also very inexpensive to make which makes them even better.  I buy the chalkboard spray paint […]
