I hope you all are having a great week and looking forward to the weekend that is just around the corner!
I can’t wait for Friday night to roll around, as B is coming home for a visit.
It is very strange not having him home this summer……
Reality likes to step in and slap me in the face every now and then, letting me know that my kids will truly be on their own soon. So very proud of both of them, but gosh dang…….I do not think ’empty nest’ will look its best on moi! 😉
Why don’t I stop pouting, and let you all in on what has been going on in our household this past month.
I finally bit the bullet with this project, which dominoed into our kitchen getting a face lift. Not the sledgehammer, taking everything down to the studs kind of facelift…….but a small little something something that will hopefully brighten up the entire space.
I will be the first to admit that there truly wasn’t actually anything wrong with our kitchen.
All except the white oven! Now that is a problem! 😉
Nothing like it not matching the other stainless steel appliances. I don’t have to have everything matchy matchy, but geez louise I do want my appliances to match! This will be fixed before long!! YEAH!
I was just plain tired of the orange oak cabinets and felt it was ready for a change. I also dreamed about having the cabinets extend all the way to the ceiling like these….
All of the cabinets do not extend to the ceiling, but enough of them do which adds interesting layers to this kitchen! Look at the feet on the cabinets……. I will definitely be adding some of these to our kitchen.
Although P has no problem with me tackling the kitchen, he does have a small problem with my vision. He can’t see me building the framework and doors on top of our existing cabinets. I have tried showing him pictures, but he would rather see the interesting layers like the kitchen above. Maybe also like this one….
Have to hand it to him….he picked a winner! I could move right into this kitchen. LOVE IT!
Don’t you think it would be a piece of cake to frame this out on top of ours????
I am also intrigued by the cabinet above the fridge.
The doors on the cabinet we just installed do not match the other upper cabinets, and I am thinking of doing something like the photo above. I could take the doors off of the old ‘half cabinet’ we took down and make half of it storage and the other half a display shelf.
Can you tell whose vision one out????
I can definitely see a light at the end of the tunnel! 😉
What have you done OR want to do in your kitchen????
