Hello Peeps! A Little Country House has been hot and heavy in a kitchen reno. We are loving it. We are going to be there for a year..just kidding...We actually got this central/cabinet area done in about 8 days. Next, the breakfast room, then the mudroom..Super excited to get to do it! Carla has a 70's ranch home. We have decided when we are done it will be a charming cottage! A little farmhouse and nostalgia thrown in for good measure. She is the one, with all the really cool, old stuff. The 100 year, old door, turned headboard, etc.. Back to the kitchen...This was very satisfying to do, because the cabinets are from 1979 and they were ready for the graveyard...but, No...let's paint em! We painted cabinets, and then I got crazy and painted the tile back splash too! I will paint your dog if he stands still long enough...and we decided to leave the doors off a block of cabinets, to open up the space and bring it up to date...It is more airy now. Carla has some beautiful dishes and kitchen wares...Now, you can see them and enjoy them, Folks, if you got pretty stuff...use it! I think her and her sweet family are on the way to enjoying a "new" old kitchen......stay tuned for more!
