The grass is getting green just in time for us to get some flurries. What? Yup, that’s April in Illinois. It was a fun week around here and you know I am happy to be back on my schedule. Here’s the weekly recap and a Kitchen Possible! Update.
On Monday, I revealed my DIY Desk Makeover for our Project in Progress this month. I am so happy with the way it turned out. I have a couple more projects to work on for it this weekend, one of which includes a trip to the fabric store.
On Tuesday, we featured Shavonda and her blog A Home Full of Color. You can check out her great featured project and DIY craft here.
Wednesday I shared my new guest room clock thanks to Pottery Barn. I think it works perfect in this space and has a classic look.
What I’m Loving Right Now.
I get to go see the Happy Chic collection by Jonathan Adler today at JCP. Thursday, I shared a few of the items I have spotted online that I’m a little obsessed with.
I’m just looking forward to not having a jam-packed Saturday and Sunday. We are going to do a little more kitchen work. I filled all the nail holes in the baseboards and now we just need to paint over them.
Here is a shot of the progress via my phone and Instagram:
We are right in the middle of this kitchen renovation now. The cabinets are done, the hardwoods are installed, we’ve painted all the walls, and are almost done installing the baseboards– It’s getting serious. The big money items are coming up. Countertops, backsplash, appliances, some new lighting fixtures…$$$$’s as far as the eye can see. Of course, we have been patient and saving and are hopeful to have it all finished by September/October.
Kitchen Possible! Update.
Time to pull out the good old list again…
So, here is “The List”:
Refinish cabinets and add new hardware Prime & paint walls and trim Add crown molding & chair rail Refinish china cabinet Hang new chandelier Rip out floor Lay down hardwoods
****Break for Busy Season/Holiday Time****
Install new baseboards
Install new quality countertops–quartz, marble, or granite….leaning towards marble or white granite that looks like marble
New faucet fixture
Add new kitchen lighting
New stainless steel appliances
Install garbage disposal
Add wainscotting, window moldings, door moldings, molding above cabinets
…make another list for all the finishing touches, hahaha!
It feels good to be in Phase 2 and knowing that in less than 6 months we will be enjoying our new kitchen. It is already a night and day difference and feels like a happier space even if it is a little bit of a mess right now.
So, I guess I need to make a decision on that countertop really soon! Time to get my booty in gear!
Have a fantastic weekend!!
