I’m so excited, I will be doing a guest appearance (cyber style) over at
That will be happening Sunday night! Whoot~whoot. I hope you’ll visit her blog and tour around a little to see what Kelli can do with paint and furniture! You’re going to love it!

And I’m having a Girls’ Weekend! road trip this weekend, I can’t wait to show you where we’re staying!  Maybe I’ll be all rested-up, so that I can start on this:

Ideas for the Kitchen
I have been putting together a little inspiration for my kitchen make-over! After going to the paint store I’ve decided on these colors: Benjamin Moore Hazy Skies OC-48 and Sandy Hook Gray HC-108! It’ll be quiet a change from my yellow, but I’m ready for it.




I have a bench similar to this one.  I plan on painting mine Duck Egg Blue – Chalk Paint, of course!




I currently have red island, soon to be Duck Egg Blue also!  Don’t try to stop me, this is going to happen.  Just don’t tell the man of the house!  He always likes it, once it’s done!



















Sandy Hook Gray, doesn’t it look great with the off white cabinets (that’s what I have)!


No, I’m not putting a bed in the kitchen, but this is the other color Hazy Skies, I’m tossing and turning at night trying to decide which color! I think it’s going to be the first one, or maybe the second one!

(Click on the pictures-you’ll be taken to their sources! You may find something you like) Let me just say that I love Pottery Barn and Sarah Richardson!

Below are the pictures from my Sunny Country Kitchen hopefully soon to be Fresh Crisp Country Kitchen!  It’s been like this for 7-8 years, I’m ready to de-Yellow!

What do you think of my inspiration pictures…I hope I can get this done super fast!

    1. Ohhh I love LOVE that bench!!!!!!! I wish I could find one!! Your island is also fabulous! I can’t wait to see it nice and crisp!! It will look fabulous! (Not that it doesnt now of course)

    2. Debbie, I don’t have a pic of our bedroom when it was painted the Sandy Hook Gray, we painted over it last summer. I’m not sure what went wrong with it, but it didn’t turn out like I wanted and I was never happy with it. Have you seen HPJ185 on Rate My Space? I think she posted a few years ago but she’s still on that site, her rooms are gorgeous but my bedroom didn’t look as good as hers. Grays are so funny to work with….I hope I didn’t discourage you but I wanted to let you know it just wasn’t what I expected.

      Let me know what you decide!

    3. Hey Debbie! Thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂 Tried sending you an email, but it’s the dreaded email response – 🙁

      Smart lady – we have to come back to your wonderful blog to talk to you! 🙂


    4. I had our bedroom and bath painted the Sandy Hook Gray a few years ago after seeing it on HPJ185’s room on RMS…..but I was very disappointed with how it turned out. I was so glad we had a mini-flood last year for no other reason to have the room repainted. It was not near as dark on the walls as your inspiration photo. I used white towels and shower curtain in the bathroom and it still didn’t work….BUT it might be just right for you, I just don’t think it was “me”.

      Looking forward to your re-do!
