So hard to believe but my dream kitchen is coming true, when I grab the counter to pull myself up off the floor after laying on my side painting the trim underneath the cabinets and step back, I think why didn’t I do this a long time ago? Why? Because it is hard work…my body is sore, tired and constantly having Cottage White paint on me some where that’s why, but so worth it!!! See those dishes on the top, those are coming down…I can just see the top of my cabinets with greenery and white twinkle lights for Christmas, it’s going to be so pretty! The picture below is of the side of the kitchen with the sink!
On the other side the drawers are in but haven’t put the hardware on yet! Don’t forget new counter tops are coming yeah!
My stove is pulled out into the middle of the kitchen, one thing though I did get to clean and dust off the back of it plus really get grease marks off the top! My stove is so close to the bottom of my microwave and that’s so hard to keep clean because it’s so close! Cleaned the floor underneath it too, I’m a cleaning, painting fool lately girls!
I hated to even show this but it is what it is…a mess! I took this picture last night but I think you should see what it will be if you ever decide to paint your kitchen cabinets and it’s been like this for a few weeks! I still have to paint the trim around the window and yes, I’m painting the light switch covers too! LOL
Mr. K moved everything over to the side and put at least some things in the cupboards, we have been living out of laundry baskets and I know it’s trying his patience's but so far no tears which is amazing but it’s not over yet! LOL
A not good picture of me but remember I just got done painting and I’m heading out the door to Syd and Sam’s Veteran’s Day program! Mr. K was trying to show me how to take a close up picture, yeah sure, with a smirk on my face plus I knew I was going to have to look at my X, which is another story that would take up everyone’s day if I posted about that!
It was also this one’s birthday that day, 10 years old, double digits, three more years and she will be a teenager, Lord, where is the time going? She was a greeter at the door for VDay, a sweet, loving little girl, she has a special place in my heart, she was born a week before my mother passed away. I think God gave her to us to help the grieving that I went thur plus she is my oldest grandchild, I call her Princess, anyone remember the tv show “Father Knows Best”? He called his oldest daughter Princess and that always stuck with me!
Samantha, Sydney’s sister is 6 and in 1st grade, she is on the very right of her teacher, standing in the front row, with the dark hair.
There she is singing with her boots on! I see so much of myself in her at times, I call her Honey Bunny!
That’s it ladies, what I just showed you is what my life is like right now, I have so much to catch up on, pictures I’ve took and never posted and visiting your blogs, which I still try to do, I don’t want to miss anything, and the parties I’m missing out on but soon everything will back to normal….hopefully!
Have a wonderful Monday everyone!
I’m joining these great parties:
