I wanted to take a minutes to update you with a few sneek peeks of our kitchen redo. It's still really hectic around here, between trying to get purse orders out to my customers, making things to take to Laurie's store for the Canton show, my kitchen redo, and I also have decided to do some major decluttering. I've been very stressed lately..... so I haven't been by to visit much lately but have really missed everyone. Hopefully things will get back to normal soon. I say normal, it's really never normal here as I stay really busy, but I know as the kitchen is almost finished, and I have got out a lot of my orders out it will be much better. So here are a few pictures and I will be showing a lot more as soon as I get the last details finished.
This is what our cabinets and counter tops looked like before. The guys have already tore out the back of this which had the same green formica on it as the counter top. What was I thinking when we built our home. I really never liked those counter tops or the color of the cabinets. I might also add what was I thinking when I picked that wall paper. At the time I thought it was wonderful, not the case anymore.
This is the new color of our cabinets. I had to add the french details here, and I just love it!
Daniel painted our cabinets out white and then went over them with a glaze to get this look.
After..... I'm really pleased with the way the painted walls turned out. It was a bit scary at first as they were not looking at all the way that I wanted, but after working with Daniel only a few minutes he figure out how it needed to be painted.
This is Daniel and he is super talented, he can do just about anything. He has a florist shop, he knows all about air conditioners, he remodels homes, he even use to decorate Christmas trees and put up Christmas lights for people. We had him buy and decorate our Christmas tree one year and he did a beautiful job, but by the time we had him do ours he was already getting a little burned out with that job so we only were able to use him for a couple of years. Now I just get my small tree down. The one that Daniel decorated for us was so huge and very tall, I just don't have the energy or the time anymore to decorate something like that. Speaking about his florist shop Daniel can fix the most beautiful bouquet of flowers you have ever seen, again this guy is super talented.
Back to the redo..... this is a few of our new stainless appliances. I just love them!!!
Another peek at the new cabinets, painted white with a glaze over them!
The old cabinets
This is my favorite thing all... the Limestone top for the island. There is also a peek at the new stove top. When they put the Limestone on the island I didn't want to cut it to put the stove top in because it was so beautiful, we actually looked for another place to put the stove top but couldn't find a better place so the limestone was cut to put the stove top in and the stove looks great there, so all is well.
The rest of the pictures for today is just the guys working.
This is the worst part of all of this, the dreaded mess. I can't stand for my house to be torn apart and in such a mess, just look at my concrete floors, but the guys assured me that they would get all the paint off the floors. You wouldn't believe how much stuff I had in my kitchen that had to be taken out, (YES I AM A HORDER) but hopefully not for long, by the time everything was out of the kitchen my whole house was a mess, as I had stuff every where. I will tell you though not much is coming back in, yes I'm decluttering my house. I will have a lot more pictures to share with you of the entire redo later on. I'm still looking for one of my antique chandeliers that I wanted to use over my kitchen table, but haven't been able to find it yet, it's lost somewhere in my storage building I'm sure. I'm also going to get a different table out of my storage building to put in the kitchen, still have to put up the curtains, just small details left. Know get ready we will be having another giveaway soon, our countdown to Christmas giveaway. I also wanted to thank everyone who has joined as new followers , love having you here. So sorry that I haven't had the time to visit much, but soon as I can I will be by.
