Hello dear friends! How is everyone doing? Can you believe it’s the end of summer already? Well, here in our little corner of world, we’ll be enjoying summer temps for another month or so but, I’m kinda getting excited about the fall season. I stopped at Lowe’s recently and their garden center was filled with pretty mums…I love the scent of the mums, it puts me into the fall mood.
Our kitchen cabinets are painted and back in place. The kitchen looks friendlier already and I’m thrilled we took the first step to get this makeover on the way. Now these cabinets match other built-ins in the house. Yes, we hired a painter…hubby has a full time job and it seems like on his days off we either travel, or there is always some other project that needs his immediate attention, and this paint project seemed to be too much for me and myself to do.
Can you tell I’m still in the process of attaching the hardware? We just used what we already had.
Here is another look at the cabinets before painting them.
Eventually the countertop and backsplash will also be replaced, this may happen sooner than later.
And recently, just for fun a simple barscape was set up while our kitchen table was overflowing with stuff from the cabinets. I think we enjoyed a bowl of soup that evening. I got a great deal on the bowls and plates…Dillards was having an additional 40% off already reduced merchandise. I’m always up for adding more white dishes with an interesting pattern or border.
So, this shall be my last post of the kitchen for a while until more progress is being made.
Thank goodness everything is put back in its place for now, I think some recipes are calling me.
Thanks for visiting!
