I want you to know that very rarely is my house top to bottom clean. REALITY! I love a clean home, but we are a very busy family with three teenagers, who are on the go. It was fun to stage these pictures for my blog. It was a lot of work. I turned on the stereo to some real good Classic Country - George Straight, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Loretta Lynn, Reba (real loud) and went to work. In a couple hours the kids will be home from school, with backpacks on the floor, shoes strewn about, and hungry for after school snacks. I'll enjoy it while I have a little peace and quiet. I might send my husband out to lunch since he is home today, so it won't get messy! NOT REALLY (but maybe).
So here we go!!!!
I decided I wanted an all cream kitchen. While I know this may not be exciting, I have painted this kitchen probably six times. I've never been afraid of color, so this is a new look for me. My cabinets are not new, but we had them painted about four years ago. I didn't want white, I went with an off white. I love the look of white on white, or cream on cream. I knew I could add enough color with appliances, counters and wall decor to make it work. I hope you like it. WE LOVE IT.
These are vintage recipes from my Grandma that I had displayed up high above the microwave. I decided to make a grouping on this wall. They are very special to me.
I have seen this word being used in other blogs and some TV show made this word popular, and I knew I wanted to do the same thing. I got the letters at JoAnn's on sale for half price and used my Chalkboard paint to paint them.
There is a story behind this vintage fork that belonged to my husbands Great Grandfather. It deserves displaying and is very, very old. It also is engraved with their family name on it. That's another post.
Please disregard these ugly chairs. I loathe them. I don't even want to redo them. I want to get rid of them.
If anyone wants to invite House Beautiful, Good Housekeeping, Country Living or any other magazine over to my little kitchen, you have my permission. (Smile)
Wait, here is reality. I will get to this tomorrow.
