Ashley’s Kitchen Remodel: Before and After!!

I was able to spend the weekend with my sister Ashley and her new baby Charley. It was a quick visit but so much fun to spend time with my mom and Ashley and her little family.  And while I was there I was able to spend time in Ashley's beautiful home. She recently remodeled her kitchen and she said I could share it with you!! (photo from Wendy Vonsosen Photography) … [Read more...]

Aqua and White Kitchen Reveal!!

I love my new Aqua and White Kitchen. I had white cabinets at my last house and loved them. For some reason I thought since this house was a little more rustic that a white kitchen wouldn't work. But I am so happy with the way this remodel turned out. {NOTE -- lots of pictures to come} {The Keep Calm sign is from Barn Owl Primitives} Here's what the kitchen looked like when we bought the … [Read more...]

Kitchen Remodel Project — DIY Kitchen Cabinet Update with Wrapping Paper!

It's temporary. And I know that I like to change things up … [Read more...]

But something changed this year and I am really wanting to simplify. Maybe it's getting older, or having my kids get older. I'm not sure. But once I started cleaning things out, I wanted to clean EVERYTHING … [Read more...]

Kitchen Remodel Sneak Peek — and a Painted Pantry Door!!

I’ve spent a large part of the summer working on a kitchen/family room remodel. It started off with my entertainment center redo. And then morphed into painting the kitchen cabinets and island, a slipcover for my sectional, painting my kitchen and other related projects. I think my husband is afraid that this project is slowly encompassing the entire house (shhhhh -- he may be right). I … [Read more...]
