Got Some Beadboard UP!


Happy Monday everyone!  We got snow yesterday but it didn’t stay so today is sort of a gloomy day. I really am wishing for some green, did I ever tell you that spring is my very favorite season? It is, love the flowers and how everything looks so fresh and clean and mostly so pretty!

Well, yesterday Mr. K worked on the kitchen putting up the beadboard on my kitchen cabinets that I’ve been wanting like forever it seems but now it’s done and looks just like it did in my dreams. As you can see I took these pictures this morning with only one cup of coffee in me and I really did want to throw my camera thur the kitchen window! They can put a man on the moon but can’t make a camera with buttons that say “Take picture of kitchen” and it comes out like a magazine photo. lol This is the left side of where I wanted the beadboard.


A closer view of the left side! In case you are new here I bought the light at Target on clearance for $19.99! Love it when I get a bargain on something I really want! Oh, and the curtains are from Pottery Barn.


The right side! Plus my trim around the window is painted Cottage White!


I think hubby did a wonderful job on it! Now all that is left to do, as far as beadboard goes, is the back bottom part of the bar, it’s all painted and waiting out in the garageSmile


Look at the hinges, they were dark, old brass, still looking good after spraypainting them with nickle paint!


Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can put in these? I’d love to hear! The only thing I can think of is tea towels in black and white.


I found these two pictures of what my kitchen cabinets used to look like and they are taken with my old camera.





I also wanted to show you my girls night out, the birthday girl is laying across our legs.

That’s champagne in the glasses, horrible stuff I took one sip and that was enough! I want that picture above my head. lol400125_378604892156126_100000198542981_1686329_392568770_n

I LOVE your cabinets...what a great idea. And I am looking at those Pottery Barn curtains and imagining them in my window, they are so pretty and I need something. The light fixture from Target is awesome, too. Great price!

I love a girl's night out. it looks like everyone is having a ball!

Beadboard can really transform the feeling of a room - any room! I love it, too - and would have it throughout my entire house if I could. :) I would put your favorite tea towels in one of the baskets, and maybe some ironstone or cookbooks in the other?

Hi Rondelle,
Your kitchen is looking fabulous. I love the beadboard that you've added. Of course, I love beadboard anywhere and everywhere. I really like the light fixture that you got for a deal, too. I'm following through the Linky followers now.

I have seen beadboard on cabs before and love the look! I plan on doing this someday when I actually redo mine. The lamp makes a great match!! andrea@townandprairie

Thank you for showing your kitchen at the party. The beadboard looks very nice and I really like the light. Thanks again!----- Shannon

Debbie said...

Wow, Rondell! Look at the difference in your kitchen! can you believe it yourself? You must be so happy with all the changes. I'm not saying it wasn't cute before....but it's AWESOME now!!
Linens would like nice in your baskets. Even wine bottles stacked would look good.
Have fun with them.

Hi Rondell,
The cabinets look awesome. Love the beadboard and new lamp. I bet it feels like a brand new space. Enjoy. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

I just love beadboard in the kitchen. I'm featuring it in the PoPP Spotlight @ Domestically Speaking. Thanks for linking up.

The kitchen is looking so great, Rondell! Love the beadboard. Those baskets above the fridge are fantastic. I might try tea towels (love black & white) in one & a bunch of florals(faux of course) in the other in a variety of colors - just laid in the basket kind of randomly like you just went out to the garden & cut them. Another idea instead of florals, would be lemons & limes (again faux) which would look beautiful in contrast to black & white tea towels. Oh my goodness, the "playing" dilemmas we find ourselves!

Rasonda @ Lake Cottage Dreams said...

LOVE this!!! I was actually thinking about doing this in our kitchen because the sides of the cabines are cheap MDF/particle board and I dont think I can paint it. Anyways, I may be hitting you up for tips when I begin my project. New follower thanks to the DS PoPP!!

Ellie said...

What a pretty kitchen! I love the beadboard. I was just going to ask about the lamp over the sink when I read that you got it at Target! I didn't even know you could get something like that at Target! Good to know.

Love the beadboard on the cabinets and the storage above your range (the baskets)! Cookbooks as well as linens would look lovely in the baskets!
