Starting at the beginning

Good Morning, I thought I might catch you all up on me.  If any of you followed me for awhile, you know that I I have been blogging and creating web pages for years.    But over the last several years  I’ve been kinda all over the place.  Starting back around the time I got a my divorce, which I wrote a little bit about in a post called Do you ever.  Well since then I have really been trying to find myself again.  Some things are the same, some things are different, and quite a bit of growth in all things. Thank you Jesus!

I remarried in 08 and my life took off again, and since then there has been lots of turns and twist.  I was still living in my home that I had with my first hubby and I was trying to update it so that I could put it in the market.  Goal being, leave Maryland and move closer to home (Kentucky).  So one of the first projects we did was remodeled and updated my kitchen.  So I thought today it would be fun to revisit my (old) kitchen.

I wish I had some before shots, but I am sure you know the look.  Builders grade oak cabinets,etc, etc…

We changed out all the light fixtures in this area to a polished nickel and bought all stainless steel appliances, painted the cabinets a antique white and put all brush nickel pulls on the cabinets, which they didn’t have any to begin with.  We added crown molding, and my hubby also added a molding to the top of the cabinets to give it a little more custom look.   The room had been painted a sage green color and we decided to paint it a buttery yellow.


We also updated the countertops with granite and added a black deep sink with  a new brush nickel water faucet.


Hubby updated the vinyl floor covering with hardwood floods and added bead board to the bar area..


Had this been a bit larger kitchen it could have been a dream.  I loved how it turned out.  From basic oak, vinyl flooring and Formica to this.  Hubby did a wonderful job and this is a transformation that I would take on again. I was so thrilled with the outcome.

Needless to say we enjoyed this kitchen after it was finished.

This is just one of the many projects we did in the house before we put it on the market.  By the time we sold the house we had repainted all the walls, recarpeted the upstairs in Berber, updated all the bathrooms with custom built vanities and all new lighting and water fixtures and tile flooring.  New hardwood floors went into the living room as well as the dining room.  Added a new front door with beveled glass front and new slider heading to the deck. 

I hope you enjoyed my remodeled kitchen.
