In my home, you can see the kitchen from the living room, and I hated that! Because those cabinets were awful to me!
I tried to add some charm by bringing in my great Grandmother's table that I painted. It helped, a little. I just couldn't help feeling that those cabinets needed a dose of pretty. I wanted so badly to paint them! But, I was scared to death of that task.
But, I conquered those fears, and went for it!! I won't lie, it was a monumental task! But they are beautiful to me now! Painted cabinets just make me smile! Everytime I walk in my kitchen, I get this feeling of joy and pride that I did that!
We changed out the cutrains for bamboo shades from our local Lowe's and they have been the best thing ever!
View from the breakfest room. More on that later.
The cream table needed a face lift too. I painted it this wonderful green color and my man picked me up some butcher block from Ikea. My daughter thought the top should be stained and I completely agreed. I love how it turned out!
This is me, trying my best to look like I don't know a camera is there! I think I just laughed the entire time!
My little green ladder from our local antique mall. I get more comments on this than anything!
