I’ll be in the kitchen!

I’ve been working on the kitchen, and I’m not finished! I thought if I post this in stages,it won’t get too long! It  seems like I’m changing every area of the kitchen and dining area, what was I thinking?? Turns out to be a lot of work!  I just wanted to show a couple of the areas.

Before at the garage entrance:


















The entrance was not bad before, actually none of it was, I was just ready for a change.  And this area began to drive me crazy, it never looked like this.  There was always something hanging on these hooks, and we just kept piling on more and more stuff!  This coat rack will be going just outside the door, in the garage!

Here’s a sneak peak of the red island (not finished!):

I am loving the colors! It seems so much cooler!

Here’s my girl after a long weekend at the lake!

If you need me, you know where I’ll be! Busy week, and this weekend we’re off to Athens, for our son’s graduation! They grow up too fast!

  1. what color did you chose? my kitchen is about the color of your before and I so want a change to light and airy!

  2. Debbie,
    I love the mustard, crimson, olive combination that is going out of style 🙁 I am young with a young family. What advice do you have for me to update “my” colors. I think that I am ready to pack up the red but I’m just not sure that I can get rid of all of it. One idea I was tossing around was to try to replace some of the red with aqua? Also I have been toying with the idea of trying to find more modern fabric prints, but with the same color scheme. I am just so unsure about what my next step should be, and when I stumbled over here and saw your kitchen I just had to ask what you think.
