Some of the little things that didn’t get done after our kitchen reno have been ignored for way too long. Things are now changing on that front! No more procrastination! I’ve painted the windowsill and trim, bought some chairs so that we can actually sit at the counter, had a bulletin board made to match the trim around the window. Oh, and do you like the cute little silver cupcake stand that is now my fruit stand? That was a freebie from a garage sale! The wonderful seller had seen me indecisively checking it out the whole time, so she sent it my way when it didn’t sell. Thanks Linda! The next step is to pick a paint color… I’ll be talking to you about that tomorrow!

When we first moved into our little house on the hill we knew that there would be lots to do, and we were excited to put our own stamp on a barely touched home. Two years later we are still slowly plugging away at it room by room. Flipping through design magazines has now become an addiction. The first thing we did before we even moved in was scrape all that popcorn off the ceilings. It took ten years off the place! A well deserved facelift. The second, a year later, was the kitchen. This one brings a smile to my face every day. As you can see from the before pictures, the layout was fine, but all the cabinetry and appliances were 30 years old… and don’t even get me going on that “sunshine ceiling”!
The After! As you can see in this picture, there are little things that haven’t been done yet… and some still aren’t. Painting for example. We didn’t want to paint until all the renos on the main floor were done, so we could paint everything at the same time. That will happen very soon since our main floor bathroom is almost done. Can’t wait!
