Out with the old….

My old kitchen.

Original cupboards were broken in a lot of places.  There was almost no counter space AND we had a dead wall.  The old owners had a little 2 person table on the dead wall but when we had a table there it just became a dumping ground.

My new kitchen is all about colour and textures. You’ll see THREE different cabinet colours. Coloured appliances. Barn wood. Glass tiles.  Open shelving. My goal is to have it look like it’s been cobbled together with much loved pieces of many years.   I also wanted places to display some of my favourite treasures.


I’ve been “pinning” different kitchens since we bought our house.    And now those pins have all come to life.  We are soooo close.

So while I’m waiting to post pictures of the finished kitchen. Here’s a sneak peak at another new space in the house.  My new CRAFT ROOM!



I found an old stool at an estate sale of some old dude who died and was a hoarder.   Recovered it was some gorgeous vinyl.  The table I made with a piece of MDF and 2 9 cube shelves from Lowes.    Painted the MDF and boom…instant craft table!


I finally have a dedicated craft space and I’m already putting it to use making curtains for the new kitchen.


I KNOW I always go on and on about how amazing my life is.  It’s annoying.  It is probably the only annoying thing about me aside from my constantly being right and how ridiculously modest I am.  BUT when you’ve had the relationships that I have had in my past and then you find a true love, a partner and all your dreams come true it’s REALLY hard not to constantly be “oh my god, do you SEE THIS? My life!!”  I try to keep it to a minimum (yes this is a minimum) but I’m so fricking happy.   But this house renovations is truly been a dream come true.   I’ve been watching HGTV since it came on the air and I’ve never had the opportunity to do a renovation.  I’m so glad I finally get my shot.

And I’ve knocked it out of the park.  I can’t wait to show off the final product.


Here’s a sneak peak….(look a DISHWASHER!)
