Sunshine in the Kitchen

Hi Everyone!
I wanted you to see my kitchen with the sun shining thur the window. Feels so good
to see the sun shining again, anyway I’m in love with my kitchen so much now, I don’t know
whether to decorate it or not because right now I’m just enjoying the clean look of it!
I’m liking the top of the cabinets bare, if I do put anything up
there it will only be one or two things. Oh, the towel is from
Target…gold metallic dots!


This is my coffee bar with a brand new coffee maker

Here is my lamp that I got on sale at Target, when the light is off the
design doesn’t show! I still don’t have baskets for my TV stand/dresser, found
two at Marshall’s but they were to tall so I had to return them, I think my best
bet is a trip to Michael’s.


Have a great week ahead and enjoy this spring weather!

Painting Gray and Annapolis




Hello everyone, how are you? I’ve been a bad blogger I know,

but watching grandkids, in two different towns, has been crazy.

Plus doing the 21 Day Fix everyday makes for a very tired person

at night!


I just got done painting my beadboard bar white and can’t wait till

I can paint the black barstools another color, I’m sort of leaning

to a robins egg blue or a toned down red, will see what happens!

We finally painted the kitchen and I couldn’t be happier, it’s a gray

shade from Valspar “Polished Silver” looks like there is a blue under

tone but there isn’t, we had it retinted can I say I dislike picking

paint colors out!

We picked the middle one! When it’s all done I’ll post,

can’t wait to do the fun part!

One fun thing I did was go to Annapolis, Maryland for my son’s

surprise birthday party. My daughter and the girls drove the

four hours and boy, was he surprised to see us there plus his

brothers and friends!

His party was held at their friends home and boy was she a

creative and do it yourself person.

These are the knobs on her kitchen cabinets that she painted

Her walls are gray, darker then mine but not this dark.

I took these with my phone and only managed three! There

were people all over so I’m happy I got what I did. The

curtains are the crinkly type that I’ve seen at Target

and I love the gold leaf lampshade don’t you?

She had unique things for her walls, loved this with the battery

lights in them.

In the diningroom she had lights strung across the

ceiling and above the farm table. I didn’t get a

picture of her chandelier but it was painted white

with clear mason jars. It’s the first one I’ve seen

done except for on Pinterest!

BTW it was Michael’s 40th birthday!


I hope you are enjoying warmer weather, it’s so nice to

look outside and see Robins on the lawn!
