Aqua and White Kitchen Reveal!!

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 once I started cleaning things out, I wanted to clean EVERYTHING … [Read more...]

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...]
